The truth behind 'Today is a Good Day'
The truth is, it was not a good day. I had not had a good day for weeks at the time of writing my song, 'Today is a Good Day.' I had been having a really hard time at work. I felt defeated every day. I felt sick and tired. I suffered from headaches. It was so stressful, that I ended up going to the spa every other week getting facials and massages. But, that comfort only lasted for so long. I was not enjoying my life. So, I decided to write a song about it. I've said this before, and it has never been as true for me as it was then. Music is therapy. So I prescribed myself a songwriting session to get out what I was feeling. I sat down to write and what transpired was the epitome of irony. I ended up writing the exact opposite of what I was feeling. Somehow, the universe decided that I needed to focus on the positives of my life. So 'Today is a Good Day' was born.

I hope this song does for you what it has done for me. It completely transformed the way I view things. Instead of the glass being half empty, it's half full. Things happen for a reason. Life happens in seasons. Sometimes there's good, and sometimes there's bad. That's what life is all about. The true meaning is in the journey of learning, growing, awakening, and arriving at your true self.
