A Beautiful Day

Warning: Slightly sappy post ahead.

Heard this uplifting song on my drive to work this morning and it reminded me that we often forget the blessings that we are surrounded by, only focussing on the what-ifs, maybes and why-nots. I know I’m guilty of that. Very often, in fact. The upbeat rhythm and the meaningful yet simple lyrics got me thinking and I spent about 30 seconds thinking about all that I’m thankful for and smiled.

I guess the bright sunshine, clear traffic and blue skies filled with fluffy clouds helped too 🙂 Oh, and this being the last workday of the short work week. Woohoo!

It’s the dawn of a new day
New hopes new dreams new ways
I open up my heart and
I’m gon’ do my part and
Make this a positively beautiful day

“A Beautiful Day” by India Arie

Life is a journey,
Not a destination,
There are no mistakes,
Just chances we’ve taken
Lay down your regrets cause all we have is now

Wake up in the morning
And get out of bed
Start making a mental list in my head
Of all of the things that I am grateful for

Early in the morning
It’s the dawn of a new day
New hopes new dreams new ways
I open up my eyes and
I open up my mind and
I wonder how life will surprise me today
Early in the morning
It’s the dawn of a new day
New hopes new dreams new ways
I open up my heart and
I’m gon’ do my part and
Make this a positively beautiful day

La la la la la la la la la [x3]
It’s a Beautiful Day [x3]

Life is a challenge not a competition
You can still smell the roses and be on a mission
Just take a moment to get in touch with your heart
Sometimes you feel like you’ve got something to prove
Remind yourself that there’s only one you
Just take a moment to give thanks of who you are
Early in the morning
It’s the dawn of a new day
New hopes, new dreams, new ways
I open up my eyes and
I open up my mind and
I wonder how life will surprise me today

Early in the morning
It’s the dawn of a new day
New hopes, new dreams, new ways
I open up my heart and
I’m gon’ do my part and
Make this a positively beautiful day

La la la la la la la la la [x3]
It’s a Beautiful Day [x2]

Let’s make this a wonderful
Let’s make this a powerful
Let’s make this a Beautiful Day
It’s a Beautiful Day

Life is a journey,
Not a destination,
There are no mistakes,
Just chances we’ve taken
Lay down your regrets cause all we have is now
