C.S. Lewis Song by Brooke Fraiser
30 Day Song Challenge - Day 21: A song you listen to when you’re happy.
This actually hasn’t been a song I’ve listened to much while being happy.. but a couple days ago, that changed.
Saturday, I was walking to my car after work. I looked up and couldn’t help but notice how lovely the sky looked. The sun was setting and the sky was pink, yellow, orange, and blue, with tons of beautiful clouds. As I was staring at the sky I thought, wow how beautiful.. and then I thought about how sad it would be if I stayed depressed and never paid attention to all of the beautiful things in life. I thought, what if I never saw a sky this lovely ever again? And then I realized, I don’t want my life to end, I don’t want to be sad.. I want to enjoy everything. I felt so hopeful.. and then the line “hope is coming for me” came to mind, which I know from C.S. Lewis Song.
So when I finally made it to my car, I played this song and I instantly felt so full of joy. So from now on I will listen to this whenever I’m happy to keep the message in my head, I’ll also play it when I’m feeling down to cheer myself up and remind me why life is good and I need to live it to the fullest.

“What are we doing in here, Chief? Huh? What’s us two guys doing in this fucking place? Let’s get out of here. Out.”
