Follow the Sun

Have you ever found one of those songs that from the moment it starts playing you like what you hear, then a few moments later absolutely fall in love with it because the lyrics so perfectly align with your beliefs or with the way you see the world? For me this is one of those songs. It perfectly describes the way I view life, the peace with which I try to live, the appreciation I have for the simplest of things, and especially my incredible love for the sun and for the natural world.

“Follow The Sun”
By Xavier Rudd

Follow, follow the sun
and which way the wind blows
when this day is done.
Breathe, breathe in the air.
Set your intentions.
Dream with care.
Tomorrow is a new day for everyone,
Brand new moon, brand new sun.
So follow, follow the sun,
the direction of the bird,
the direction of love.
Breathe, breathe in the air,
cherish this moment,
cherish this breath.

Tomorrow is a new day for everyone,
brand new moon, brand new sun.
When you feel life coming down on you,
like a heavy weight.
When you feel this crazy society,
adding to the strain.
Take a stroll to the nearest water´s edge
remember your place.
Many moons have risen and fallen long, long before you came.
So which way is the wind blowin’,
and what does your heart say?
So follow, follow the sun,
and which way the wind blows
when this day is done…

In the craziness if this fast paced world I’ve found it’s really important for me to take a little bit of time everyday to just breath, to get outside, to look up at the sky, and to find beauty in the smallest of things. You never know what kind of curveball life is going to throw at you and all you can do is adapt to whatever the wind blows your way. Enjoy and appreciate what you’ve been given and the make the absolute most out of every situation.

The Perfect Song for Every Occasion

Do you ever have one of those moments where a song comes on and you think “yes, this is my jam!” and want to just play the song over and over again. Well, this is definitely one of those songs. I’ve never met anyone who didn’t start dancing upon hearing it. It immediately puts you in a good mood and is appropriate for every occasion.

Listen and Enjoy!!!
And please feel free to have a personal dance party while listening, or even better, get everyone around you (whether you know them or not) to join in your impromptu dance party

Patrick Stewart Speaks Out Against Domestic Violence

I know this is already all over the internet, but I had to repost it again. I was so moved this speech and am so very happy to see that there are men like Patrick Stewart who not only strongly believe that men play a vital role in stopping domestic violence, but who are also actively working to help other men realize this and to support the women and children who have become victims
