How To Save A Perfect Moment
LIFESTYLE | LOS ANGELES | NYC
- By Guest Contributor Craig Clemens
I was sitting at my coffee shop today and this song came on and give me the chills…
I’ve had a crazy fucking year. Some of the highest highs of my life and some pretty low lows.
Gotta embrace them all – without one, you can’t have the other.
This song was there at the start and now here at the end. Nothing to do with the lyrics – not even sure what they mean – but isn’t it crazy how a song can conjure up so many memories?
There’s a song that hits the radio once in awhile that still reminds me of a girl I dated when I was 18 years old… we spent 30 days and nights in a row together… and then it ended, can’t remember why…
But I’ll always be thankful for those magical 30 days… and that song that brings them back.
There’s a song reminds me of the night I was in LA packing my shit and it finally sunk in that I was REALLY moving to NY…
Another that every time I hear it I think of the long walk I took down my street when my parents told me they were getting divorced.
And another that played in the back of my mind when I buried my first pet. It still makes me want to cry.
And then a song that came on on a random Thursday night this year – I was in a crowded nightclub, but I’d arrived by myself.
It came on and all-of-a-sudden – despite being bone-dead sober – a wave of ecstasy SHOT through my body… stronger than anything I’d ever experienced!
It was because at that moment, for the first time as far back as I could remember, everything was absolutely perfect in my life.
Of course, “perfect” never stays, just like every song comes to an end.
But that’s ok. Because I know some day it will be again. And the times when it’s not, allow us to appreciate the times when it is.
If it hasn’t happened for you lately, that’s ok. It probably just means you are DUE.
It’s very likely the next special moment in your life is right around the corner.
And when it happens – when the Universe seems to have synced up EVERYTHING exactly for you – make sure you remember it with a song.
