Life-isms

It’s Good

Maybe you’ve wondered why my blog is named The Heart of Life.  My very first post explains it, but I think now is a good time to revisit my reasons behind naming it such.  It’s named after a slightly lesser known John Mayer song called The Heart of Life.  Writing down the lyrics to a whole song is kind of a cliche thing to do, but I love the whole song.  So here goes cliche.

I hate to see you cry
Lying there in that position
There’s things you need to hear
So turn off your tears
And listen

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No it won’t all go the way it should
But I know the heart of life is good

You know, it’s nothing new
Bad news never had good timing
Then, circle of your friends
Will defend the silver lining

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No it won’t all go the way it should
But I know the heart of life is good

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
Fear is a friend who’s misunderstood
But I know the heart of life is good
I know it’s good

I wanted to end my child abuse prevention theme with a high note, and I think this song captures the spirit perfectly.  Bad things happen to kids sometimes, and it’s been like that from the beginning of time.  The world can be a bad place, but we can’t let that devalue the goodness in our individual lives.  Life is good.
