Something so unexpected and
amazing has happened recently...
I've become blissfully happy
with my life. Like, actually
grateful for every second of the
day. I've noticed this onset for a
while, but it's really hit me in the
last week, and especially since I
wrote those 2 new songs. I really
do need to create in order to
live and feel worthwhile. But it's
more than just that. I'm happy
with my family. I'm happy
about this tour. I'm happy
that tomorrow morning I get
on a plane to Pittsburgh, play a
stadium of 60,000 people, then fly
home. I'm happy that the next
day I'm recording 2 new songs.
I'm happy that I get to
meet so many people on the road
who make me feel like my
music really matters to them.
This ridiculous thing happens
to me when I'm this happy...
I start feeling like karma
will balance it all out by
making something tragic happen.
But I'm trying to just show
gratitude as much as I can.
Everyday, every minute.
I'm grateful for being happy
right this moment. I think I'm
a summer person. I'm also a work
person. Tour gives me something to
pour myself into and a reason
to feel ok about sleeping in til
noon on my days off. Today I
went to a management meeting
and approved/declined things and then
went shopping for Fathers Day. Tomorrow
it might rain in Pittsburgh.
I hope it doesn't.
