One day...

This song, and I have looked at the lyrics, which make no sense to compare how I feel when I listen to this song.


I googled the lyrics.  They don't say what I hear.  What I hear is that I am focusing on my future...  Not the now.  Not the girls.  Not our dog.  Not what is important.  Jeff and I have focused on the future so much.  We have been missing the rapture this whole time... incomplete.  One day I'll be at peace and enlightened.  I am already married with children... I am not here, however.  I have been running...  It is time for me to stop.  Stop and admire what I have, because soon it will be gone, and I will miss it.  Because, I am too focused on the future... I am running far too fast for the future and my finish line.  I am missing out on the now, too concentrated on the future.  

rapture |ˈrap ch ər|nounfeeling of intense pleasure or joy
I am missing on my NOW rapture... too intertwined with my future joy, and that is not what matters to me the most, at the end of my day.  It is time for me to refocus.  My family.  My baseline rapture.
