Have you ever felt it could all go away 
If you blink
If you never stop running you won’t fall behind
So you think
And you wonder in your heart
If you’re still not who you are
Who are you?
Nothing’s as it seems till it all falls apart
If you have a dream, go chase it
If you feel hope, don’t waste it
If you find love, embrace it
And never take a single breath for granted
The story’s yours, go write it
Tomorrow’s undecided
Our days are counted on this planet
Never take a single breath
Take a single breath for granted
Maybe it’s time you bet on yourself
Listen to your heart
Just listen to your heart and nobody else
So go find out who you are
Only you know who you are
Who are you?
‘Cause all you have to lose 
Is your best life yet
So go ahead
If you have a dream, go chase it
If you feel hope, don’t waste it
If you find love, embrace it
And never take a single breath for granted
The story’s yours, go write it
Tomorrow’s undecided
Our days are counted on this planet
Never take a single breath
Take a single breath for granted
Sometimes the greatest moment we’ll ever know
Are when we’re letting go, so let go
And maybe our brightest days still wait for us
In the unknown
If you have a dream, go chase it
If you feel hope, don’t waste it
If you find love, embrace it
And never take a single breath for granted
If you have a light, go find it
The story’s yours, go write it
Our days are counted on this planet
So never take a single breath 
Take a single breath for granted

Josh Groban


I love this song. It’s so uplifting. The lyrics of “Granted” say more than I could ever possibly say, the song a reminder to go after what we love.

In the lyric video above a number of talented students from Groban’s alma mater Los Angeles County High School of the arts help convey the message.

Turn up the volume and let Josh Groban’s amazing vocals and powerful music uplift you as we enter a new month and the rest of the year.

Go write your story. It’s waiting.

“If you have a dream, go chase it”

Our dreams can sometimes feel elusive, so far away that we lose sight of them. But keep them in your sights. When we take those small steps, slowly, ever so slowly, yet also surprisingly quickly, life can change.

For me the past six months has been about taking steps forward but there’ve also been steps back. I’ve had many short trips away, musical sojourns, stories published, connections deepened, opportunities and plans set in motion. Lots of good things but also hard days, doubts, tears and challenging stuff, which only makes the joys brighter.

Amongst it all, every single day, I’m mindful of how much there is to be grateful for. Every morning we wake up is a new beginning. And, as we enter this second half of the year, I’m looking forward and upwards with renewed hope.

Embracing the light

“The story’s yours, go write it.”

Happy July everyone. Whatever’s gone before, in the first half of 2019, may you find peace in the present and hope in what’s to come. Go after those dreams, live with passion, write that story and find your radiant light that shines from within.

The world needs it.

Life is precious and beautiful. It’s also fleeting. So never take a single breath for granted.

In love and light


Afternote: I wrote this post last night on my phone, while sitting on my couch, listening to a couple of albums by Josh Groban. I was so moved by his music the words just flowed and in less than 20 minutes this post was born. Here’s to music that inspires.
