This day has been a real roller coaster. I was walking to the bank to shut down an account, when I met this Asian woman was walking in the opposite direction with a stroller in the street. The sun was shining and I had Oasis' Champagne Supernova in my ears when I saw her coming with her sunglasses on, smiling. Her smiling made my joy bubble up and that bounced right back to her and there was a moment of connection in joy, just as we passed each other. I was smiling around my head. It was a split second thing and it made my day.
Otherwise it's been heavy for me these last days. I was consciously nasty to a friend last weekend and I've felt bad about it since. I always do. That revenge stuff has never paid off for me, ever.
And so this old gem popped up on my shuffle today, and it woke me up for a moment. The opening line hit me stronger than ever before.
