I have mentioned before that there is a certain song by Pink that is especially near and dear to me (for reasons that I cannot disclose). Well, I just found out that this certain song was performed AT THE GRAMMIES tonight and I can hardly believe it! I was at work tonight and didn't watch them live. But a dear friend (thanks Alli!) sent me the link to the YouTube video and I am bursting all over again. If you didn't see the performance either, here is the video for you.
This song makes me cry, for so many reasons not the least of which is that it is just a really, really beautiful song. It seems especially poignant for me tonight just thinking about the songwriter (whomever that may be... *wink, wink*) and some current challenges in my own life. This song, to me, celebrates the beauty that is found in living fully in the moment and not waiting for something better to come tomorrow. It is about living with abandon and not holding back or robbing yourself of joy just to protect yourself from hurt. This has been a theme I feel God is trying to teach me about lately.
Don't go through the motions, don't put up walls of protection all the time, love and be loved with abandon....
So even though there are some conflicting thoughts and feelings in my head and heart and soul tonight, I leave you with this beautiful song that reminds me to live my life fully and find joy in all the blessings both big and small. I might just throw some glitter in the air, just 'cuz I never have and it seems like it might be really fun.
