How many times have you had a song stuck in your head and then turned on the radio to hear that exact song playing?
Well, that experience has just been one-upped.
This afternoon, while singing the oh-so catchy Doo-doo-do-do's of Tom's Diner, I turned the radio on just as Suzanne Vega was singing the same 'Doo-doo."
And in a moment, my day shifted. It's as if the whole day is now exuding a new potential.
It was a perfect song to be a soundtrack to that moment, with lyrics about watching life from behind a piece a glass.
How often do we do this? Just watch the day go by without fully getting ourselves involved in it. Letting opportunities pass because we didn't want to dig deeper? Or losing out on new friendships because we just didn't say 'hello.'
But I correct myself, it's not that the day is exuding a new potential. It's that now I am looking with new eyes to see what was already there.
So finish your cup, pay your bill and step outside the Diner to see what today has to offer you.
