Living in the Moment

Jason Mraz | The Silver Pen

Last weekend, the HOTY, Suddenly Seven and I had the amazing opportunity to hear Jason Mraz in concert. I’m often utterly clueless when it comes to music. Case in point: I know every song from the Rock of Ages movie. Uh huh. I know. You don’t even know the film and if you do, you probably don’t want to admit it.

Even though I’m clueless, it doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate great music. Take Jason Mraz for example. Prior to the concert, I hadn’t heard of him (note the admission in the previous paragraph!). However, one of the first songs was Living in the Moment and in less than a moment, I found myself in tears. Oh and then, Suddenly Seven leaned over and said, “This is what you do, Mommy.”

Below is the YouTube.com video of the song as well as the lyrics. Hope that you find it as inspiring as I do!

Living in the Moment

If this life is one act
Why do we lay all these traps
We put them right in our path
When we just wanna be free

I will not waste my days
Making up all kinds of ways
To worry about all the things
That will not happen to me

So I just let go of what I know I don’t know
And I know I only do this by
Living in the moment
Living my life
Easy and breezy
With peace in my mind
I got peace in my heart
Got peace in my soul
Wherever I’m going, I’m already home
I’m living in the moment

I’m letting myself off the hook for things I’ve done
I let my past go past
And now I’m having more fun
I’m letting go of the thoughts
That do not make me strong
And I believe this way can be the same for everyone
And if I fall asleep
I know you’ll be the one who’ll always remind me
To live in the moment
To keep living my life
Easy and breezy
With peace in my mind
I got peace in my heart
Got peace in my soul
Wherever I’m going, I’m already home

I can’t walk through life facing backwards
I have tried
I tried more than once to just make sure
And I was denied the future I’d been searching for
I spun around and hurt no more
By living in the moment
Living my life
Easy and breezy
With peace in my mind
I got peace in my heart
Got peace in my soul
Wherever I’m going, I’m already home

I’m living in the moment
I’m living my life
Just taking it easy
With peace in my mind
I got peace in my heart
I got peace in my soul
Oh, wherever I’m going, I’m already home
I’m living in the moment
