I was listening to Rosie O’Donnel on sirius satellite yesterday. I know many people find her a bit “abrasive”, but when she is not ranting and raving I do find her very entertaining and quite amusing. Well, anyway she was interviewing Melissa Ethridge who’s music I really love. There was a guy who called in, lets just say he was very “feminine and highly emotional”. He was crazy for Melissa, almost bordering on “lunatic”. He was saying that when he was feeling really down that Melissa’s music just made him so happy and brought him out of his “funk”.
It was what Melissa said that I thought was really awesome. I tried to find the interview online so I could put down what she said exactly, but it was something along this line. “You’re supposed to feel good and happy with life, when you find something that brings you joy, you need to embrace it and bring it into your life. And when you surround yourself with these types of things, eventually you feel happy all the time, and isn’t that what life is really all about”.
I don’t know, her words just kind of hit me. It’s just that simple.
