A few weeks ago Matt and Kim were on the radio, talking about this song and the film clip. It’s pretty awesome really, especially when they started explaining what inspired them to dance in bed. They talked about that feeling when you wake up, roll over and look out the window, taking in the new day; about how you remind yourself that everything is going to be ‘alright’.
Funnily enough around the same time my mum was talking to me about how indescribably lucky she felt each morning when she woke up most days and the importance of positivity. Even though she is stressed out of her tree most of the time and has one hundred things to think about- she wakes up and thinks, “today is going to be a good day”.
It’s really easy to turn a situation into something negative and quite difficult to make it positive, especially when you are on a downward spiral.
On Wednesday, driving to a shopping centre for the second time in a fortnight to replace my second cracked phone screen nearly tipped me over the edge. In the scheme of things it wasn’t a big deal, but at the time I was ready to burst into tears. After getting my new, new phone, I got back in the car, back into traffic and was teeming with anger; about nothing and about everything- I was just pissed off. I thought of Matt and Kim’s song and after some quick thinking found it on YouTube to blast it through the car.
- It’s ridiculous what something so small like a song, or a little idea can do to your frame of mind. I was set for the rest of the day. Since then I’ve been feeling great. I mean I’m exhausted from starting back at work and frazzled by the things lining up in my email inbox, but damn, I feel happy.
Maybe that happiness is because I almost feel like my knee wasn’t ripped open 7 weeks ago, maybe it’s because I live a fairly easy life in comparison to most people or maybe it’s because I decided not to let little problems become something they are not. Who knows, all I can say is that Matt and Kim are my favourite people right now, even the kids I babysit love their song.
To top it all off I found this on facebook this morning. I hope you have a good weekend.
