This has gotta be the good life

December 13, 2009 § 3 Comments

My Ipod was playing “Good Life” by One Republic. I was sliding down the hill in a car on my way to work. I was on fire. I was on top of the world. Better yet, I was very very happy. The reason: I’m living the dream. My dream.

I am now able to do the work that I love, the work that I’ve always wanted to do. I’m in the exact place where I’ve always wanted to be, and yet I know that I still have so much more places to go to.

This doesn’t come easy. Sacrifices were made along the way. But I never lost my faith and I knew that when I just listen to my heart and pay attention to the signs I would be on the path that has always meant to be for me.

It is a magnificent moment every morning, when you can briefly contemplate that you are thankful. When you are blessed to have the opportunity to do the work that you’ve always wanted to do, especially when it’s been a long way since you first wanted it. It is a privileged place. Not because you get this fancy social status when you get a certain job, but because you’re handed the responsibility of the work you’re passionate about. You can leave for work with an amazing feeling: “What can I contribute to the world today?”

When you have that in you, know that you are privileged, be aware of your blessings, be thankful, be grateful. Realize that you’ve gotta be living the good life. And sing along  =)

Oh this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life

Say oh, got this feeling that you can’t fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life
A good, good life

Sometimes there’s airplanes I can’ t jump out
Sometimes there’s bullshit that don’t work now
We are god of stories but please tell me-e-e-e
What there is to complain about

When you’re happy like a fool
Let it take you over
When everything is out
You gotta take it in
Oh this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life

Say oh, got this feeling that you can’t fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life
A good, good life
