Keep Your Head Up

I had a crappy day today. It didn’t start out that way. I didn’t wake up late or arrive late to work, but circumstances that I cannot control turned the day into crappy. I left working feeling beaten down, wanting to cry, wanting to drown my day in a bottle of wine, and ignoring the world. I got in the car and Katy Perry’s “Firework” came on. I listened to the lyrics and felt a little better. Even though I’m not the biggest Katy fan, I liked the lyrics. They were positive and I needed some positivity. Then I thought about the song my friend Heather sent me a few weeks ago. The song was “Keep Your Head Up” by Andy Grammer. She tweeted, “This song reminds me of you.” And this song instantly turned a crappy day into a nice evening. So thank you Heather for introducing this song to me. I’ll always try to keep my head up. To others, just keep your head up, keep on smiling, and know it gets better.
