I'm living for right now - I'm not waiting
Song first, talk later!
It's amazing how well this song lines up with our February Focus of mindfulness! It's basically one giant quote! We love how the song talks about not just living in, but cherishing the present moment and not waiting for a future that may not come, and if it does may not turn out the way we expect it to. As we're on the topic, how are you doing with the Mindfulness Challenge? Are you finding time each day to just be still for a bit? It's not to late to start!
Singer Tori Kelly is not a newcomer to the music scene having competed on shows like Star Search and America's Most Talented Kids as a child, and more recently making it through to Hollywood on American Idol. She didn't make it to the Top 24, but fortunately for our ears wasn't deterred, and released EP albums in both 2012 and 13. Her Youtube channel is a delightful mix of both original work and covers you'll be sorry if you don't check out! Some of our favourites: Dear No One, All In My Head (which has a bit of a "Cry Me A River" feel to it at the beginning), and Roar (with Scott from Pentatonix).
Now, you could settle in with a hot chocolate and just listen to a full Tori Kelly playlist, but the song Fill A Heart - written for a campaign to end child hunger - is more than enough to give you the warm and fuzzy feeling you're looking for!
As always, enjoy!
Until next time...
