During intervals of stress, it’s nice to take a step back and appreciate the simple nice things that can occur throughout the day despite the stress.

For me today, it was this: There’s a kind of beauty to the simple coincidence of hearing the same song on the radio at the beginning of the day and again at the end of the day. I’m not talking putting on the iPod shuffle or the Spotify playlist. I’m talking turning on the actual old fashioned radio, putting on a local station, and by pure coincidence hearing the exact same song to bookend my day.
In this instance, it was King and Lionheart, from one of my favorite bands of the moment, Of Monsters and Men (even if they do kind of make me think of crying guys). It’s a low-key, soothing song; it put me in a relaxed mood to start my day and it helped me decompress at the end of a harried day.
