Wake up and smile :)

There's this song from Owl City that speaks to me. Here's the last stanza:
This Is The Future by Owl City
And when you wake up on your own
Look around you 'cause you're not alone
Let your hopes go and they'll survive
'Cause this is the future and you are alive
You're headed home
Translation by Israel Chua
Wake up, wake up! Snap out of it! 
People around you experience hardships too, some worse than yours.
Be loving, care for those around you. Don't be stuck in your own world of selfishness. 
Let go, let God. Every seed that dies produces much fruit.
Thank God that you have a glorious future and destiny ahead! 
Thank God that you are alive!

Scenic Sublime

Yes, I've been listening to Owl City again.
There's one exceptionally beautiful phrase in the song Fuzzy Blue Lights that I absolutely love: Scenic Sublime.

Man, how does the guy come up with such illustrative lyrics?

And this morning's weather most aptly portrays that phrase!

Melody meets Picturesque - the epitome of beauty.
