The Best Day of My Life

While I hear it everywhere now, I first heard this song — American Author’s Best Day of My Life — in the amazing pre-release video for Jane Richmond & Shannon Cook’s Journey and it was just — it was in every breath of my day today, so I am putting my photos of today to the lyrics of this brilliant song, written out just because the lyrics in poem form are as important as the tune for me…

“I had a dream so big and loud

I jumped so high I touched the clouds…

20140418-142511.jpg“I stretched my hands out to the sky
We danced with monsters through the night…

20140418-142524.jpg“I’m never gonna look back
Never gonna give it up
No, please don’t wake me now….

This is gonna be the best day of my life
My life…

This is gonna be the best day of my life
My life…

“I howled at the moon with friends
And then the sun came crashing in…

20140418-142457.jpg“But all the possibilities
No limits just epiphanies…

I’m never gonna look back
Never gonna give it up
No, just don’t wake me now…

This is gonna be the best day of my life
My life
This is gonna be the best day of my life
My life…

“I hear it calling outside my window
I feel it in my soul…

The stars were burning so bright…

20140418-142557.jpg“The sun was out ’til midnight
I say we lose control…

20140418-142541.jpg“This is gonna be the best day of my life
My life

This is gonna be the best day of my life
My life
This is gonna be, this is gonna be, this is gonna be
The best day of my life

Everything is looking up, everybody up now

This is gonna be the best day of my life
My life…”

Aren’t those lyrics something special? If there’s one idea I want to live by, one lesson I teach my kids, I want us to hold tight to this: Make every day the best day of your life.
