The Good Life

The other day I was listening to my Taylor Swift Pandora station (I'm not ashamed to admit that I love me some Taylor Swift!) when the song Good Life by OneRepublic comes one. Now I'm not going to lie, the first thing that ran through my mind was the Disney Commercial. I'm already daydreaming about our next family vacation to Disney with munchkin. We were going to wait till munchkin was 4 or 5 but I'm not sure I can wait that long. The trip might happen at age 2 or 3 cause I'm just that impatient. But I digress...

I just stopped and listened to the lyrics. It's such a catchy song; I love the beat! My favorite part is the chorus:

Oh this has gotta be the good life  
This has gotta be the good life 
This could really be a good life, good life 
 Say oh, got this feeling that you can't fight 
 Like this city is on fire tonight 
 This could really be a good life 
 A good, good life

It got me thinking...I have a good life.  A GREAT life actually.  I have:

A family, immediate and extend that love me.
A husband that tells me on a daily basis that he loves me...and backs it up with actions
A house with heat and food
4 furbabies that love me unconditionally
A munchkin growing snug and warm inside
3 part time jobs that I enjoy
A God who loves and died for me
Money to cover our bills and expenses...we're not rich but we're ok

So while I don't have everything I want, a huge house, the newest electronic toys, yearly vacations to exotic destinations...what I do have makes me rich beyond measure.  For that, I am so, so thankful.

 What's good about your life?

  1. Love your song choice this week :)

  2. I was just listening to this on my ride back upstate from work.  Loveeee, OneRepublic and this particular song.

    We can always find something good in life; some days, it just takes time to push the bad aside and be thankful for the air we breathe...

  3. Yup...I watch a friend's almost 2 year old 3 days a week, I sub at a private school two 1/2 days a week and then I'm a Pampered Chef consultant. Keeps me busy but I enjoy it all:)

  4. I agree...even when life is hard or bad, there's always something to be thankful for! And I love them too!
