I have a new song that is my favorite. It is called Unwritten, and it is exactly what I needed to hear. The moment that I heard it on the radio I knew that it was meant for me to hear right at that moment. It says:
I am unwritten,
can't read my mind
I'm just beginning
the pens in my hand
Staring at the blank page before you
open up the dirty window
let the sun illuminate the words that you cannot find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhabition
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Speak the words on your lips
Treat yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Where your book begins
The rest is still UNWRITTEN!!!!
Aren't we all just beginning to live. Each day SHOULD be a new beginning...another page in a wonderful book....with the ending unplanned. When I think about my favorite book that I have ever read, it is not utter happiness on every page. It has drama....it has depth. Every page of my book may not be happiness, excitement, and joy. It is the reality of life. There are moments of true bliss, and there are moments of extreme dispair. How I wish that every day of my life had been documented. Wouldn't it be wonderful to look back in a time of dispair, catch a glimpse of happiness, and realize that bright days would come again. Wouldn't it be wonderful to keep yourself grounded by reading about a time in your life that was terrifying and realizing that.....today is really not all that bad....I CAN handle this.
I think it is important for me to realize that I am in charge of me. No one else can "feel" it for me....I need to feel the rain on my skin.
So, today, I am chosing to live my life with arms wide open! Today is where my book begins. THE REST IS STILL UNWRITTEN! How is the story in your book?
