This post is inspired in large part by Brandi Carlile’s song Have you ever? If you haven’t given it a listen yet, grab a cup of coffee and soak it in. I promise you won’t regret it.
Have you ever wondered what songs would play on the soundtrack of your life?
Have you ever fought with someone you love so much that you don’t think you’ll ever fully recover? Because they are family and the things they said can’t ever be unsaid?
Have you ever wished you could just float in a river of cheese?
Have you ever heard music so beautiful you had to close your eyes to take it all in?
Have you ever formed a soul connection with an animal?
Have you ever given thanks to your anxiety for leaving you alone for a moment, so you can enjoy your life?
Have you ever read a book so good that you needed a reading detox?
Have you ever struggled to make the simplest decisions?
And have you ever thought about how the decisions you make—both big and small—snowball and impact everything you have ever experienced, touched, felt, and loved?
Have you ever been so happy in a moment that you want to take a snapshot and remember it always?
Have you ever been so sad in a moment that it leaves an imprint on your heart forever?
Have you ever waited for a phone call that you knew might never come?
Have you ever switched outfits four times in a day, and nothing fits the way you want it to?
Conversely, have you ever gone shopping for just one thing, but miraculously everything looks great and fits like a dream? And on that day, did you ever silently wish you could rob a bank?
Have you ever wanted to grab your best friend and escape life for a while?
Have you ever traveled alone and missed the company, and traveled with company and wished you were alone?
