One of my favorite pastimes is listening to Coldplay. Their lyrics are so poignant and truly resonate with my soul. The song “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall” is one of the best songs ever because it’s infectiously positive and relatable. It reminds me to see the silver lining in every situation and embrace life to the fullest. The phrase “I’d rather be a comma, then a full stop” perfectly sums up why I fight everyday to be the best version of myself. There is nothing worse than feeling stagnant. You have to keep moving in order for change to occur. Once you stop trying or throw in the towel you give up the chance to progress. I have always had a fighting spirit that never wanted to accept defeat. Every time I reach my breaking point or lose my way, I have to remind myself of how far I’ve come and how much more I need to accomplish.
This song perfectly describes the euphoria you feel when you’re having a bad day and turn on your favorite song and forget all your troubles. To quote Perks of Being a Wallflower, “in that moment I swear we were infinite.”
It also encourages you to celebrate the “in between” phase. It’s so easy to focus on creating and achieving our goals. In fact, we do it so much that we often forget about the here and now. The present can be just as rewarding. It is a gift after all! My gift to you is sharing my life experiences and this wonderful song.
Have a great day 🙂
