Lovely Day by Bill Withers

Sometimes you just need someone to remind you that today is a great day.  It is so easy to get caught up in the hustle of everyday life.  And it's even easier to get caught up in the negativity of those around you.  I have been miserable on the most beautiful, sunny days.  I may be out driving around, running errands, and just whining the whole time about traffic.  But if somehow I can remind myself to take 2 seconds and look up from my clenched grip at 10 and 2, I see the sun, the grass, the people.  All the good stuff that was there the whole time and I realize it is actually a lovely day!
