what a fucking incredible day
I woke up to snow falling
so I had to go run in it, it was absolutely beautiful
then I had some coffee and a delicious bagel
I decided to walk up to 7-11 and get some beer
(that's a pretty normal occurrence)
that's when the theme of the day came out shining...
while I was walking, I was thinking completely in the moment
in the now
I didn't need to hurry
I slowed down my pace and immediately felt even better
just relax, I kept saying it over and over in my head
while I was in line at 7-11
I turned my Ipod off.. right in the middle of this Radiohead song
"reeeeelax, reeeeelaxx" goes over and over in the song.
(I never pay attention to names of songs, so I'm not naming it)
I put my beer on the counter
a second later, the next person in line put his 6-pack on the counter
"I guess it's time to relax, right?" he asked
"definitely" I said back with a little laugh
"definitely time to relax"
I paid, walked out, took my Ipod off pause
to be greeted to..
floating through that beautiful song from Radiohead
instead of walking straight home
I took a long walk through all the beautiful old neighborhoods
by volunteer park
I took my time
every second was incredible
it is so gorgeous to be living
and here right now
