This is the "Sound of Settling." (youtube "Sound of Settling" by Death Cab for Cutie and you'll get it)
In the mean time, here's what I'm settling for today:
I need a vacation... I am settling for a morning at the Chelsea Treehouse :/
I need a million dollars... I am settling on the xx in my bank account.
I need the warmth of the sun.... I am settling on a hot shower.
I'd love to hear the words "I was in the wrong."..... I am settling on silence.
I want a K Cup... I am settling on hot tea.
You know that quote, about how you should never settle for 2nd best (or something
like that)... I think its BS. Sometimes, all there is left to do is settle... If I were constantly hungry, wanting more and more, not able to settle, I can only imagine the bitterness that would overtake me.
So... got a crappy car? Feel settled that you have 4 wheels.
Feeling overweight? Feel settled that you're not the 900 pound, bedridden man in Chile.
Feeling overwhelmed by your ((very)) loud, unruly, semi-insane children? Feel settled that they're there.
You get the point... and...
"ba baaaaaaa ba baaaaaaa this is the sound of settling."
:) Happy Thursday.
