Sharing My Good Mood

Sooo ... It's been quite a week for me, and that's probably putting it somewhat mildly. There have been some phenomenal highs and some really painful lows. In fact it's been a bit like a roller coaster, and I must tell you: I'm really not a fan of roller coasters. Seriously, can someone explain to me the appeal of flipping upside down, going a million miles an hour and thinking your going to die the whole time?! I digress ... where was I?

Oh yes, my week. This week has turned out to be about changes, mostly in the arena of friendships. In that regard here on EP I've made some new and delightful friends, lost one that was very special to me and have been missing absent ones. I've cried a lot, laughed even more and through it all managed to stay sane (relatively speaking, I mean this is me were talking about) and keep my smile.

I recently read something a dear friend wrote about changes, and friendships. I'm going to quote him, because he said it better than i ever could, and hopefully he doesn't sue me for copyright infringement. *nictates*

"We come into each other's lives for moments. Sometimes those moments are fleeting, sometimes they last. And, occasionally - rarely even, quality friendships are formed. But each step of the journey was important. Each moment of our past led us to where we are today. To regret the past is folly. We are who we are because of every step, every moment, every person who has touched our lives - however briefly."

This week ... this week has proved the accuracy of those words for me. It has reminded me to simply enjoy each and everyone of my friends, my relationships, for as long as I can. Also, should there ever come a day where they come to an end, then I will look back on them with fondness and not sadness.

Okay, great, but what the heck does this have to do with the song lyrics I'm about to share? Quite a bit actually. As the week draws to a close I find that I'm in a really GREAT place. The sun is shining, the weather is warm and I'm REALLY happy. I have a good life. Despite it's lows and my occasional struggles, I'm really quite blessed, especially in the friendship arena. So I just wanted to take a moment to share with you a song that addresses this and makes me smile.

I adore all of you, so very much. Thank you for everything you do for me and for making me feel seen and noticed.

On Top Of The World
By Imagine Dragons


If you love somebody
Better tell them while they’re here ’cause
They just may run away from you

You’ll never know what went well
Then again it just depends on
How long of time is left for you

I’ve had the highest mountains
I’ve had the deepest rivers
You can have it all but life keeps moving

Now take it in but don’t look down

‘Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I’ve been waiting to smile, ‘ay
Been holding it in for a while, ‘ay
Take it with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child
I’m on top of the world.

I’ve tried to cut these corners
Try to take the easy way out
I kept on falling short of something

I coulda gave up then but
Then again I couldn’t have ’cause
I’ve traveled all this way for something

Now take it in but don’t look down

‘Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I’ve been waiting to smile, ‘ay
Been holding it in for a while, ‘ay
Take it with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child
I’m on top of the world.

‘Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I’ve been waiting to smile, ‘ay
Been holding it in for a while, ‘ay
Take it with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child

And I know it’s hard when you’re falling down
And it’s a long way up when you hit the ground
Get up now, get up, get up now.

And I know it’s hard when you’re falling down
And it’s a long way up when you hit the ground
Get up now, get up, get up now.

‘Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I’ve been waiting to smile, ‘ay
Been holding it in for a while, ‘ay
Take it with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child
I’m on top of the world.

H, you are a fabulous person. I hope you know I have grown to appreciate your friendship more than I can express. I am happy to hear you are on a high right now, regardless of what may be happening in the background.

My dear friend, the feelings are quite mutual. Your friendship means a great deal to me. Thank you for counting me amongst those close to you, and thank you also for allowing me to quote you.
