Yesterday was a bit difficult, and as I’ve said many times, music gets me through sometimes. One of the most peaceful and inspirational songs I’ve ever heard is Colin Hay’s ‘Waiting for My Real Life to Begin,’ so I wanted to post it here in hopes that someone else might be comforted by it as well.

I’ve been thinking quite alot about a past love and the peace he brought to my life, so the chorus says loads about how I’m feeling right now:
And you said, ‘Be still my love
Open up your heart
Let the light shine in’
Don’t you understand?
I already have a plan
I’m waiting for my real life to begin
