I expect that Avicii’s ‘The Days’ featuring Robbie Williams could probably be interpreted in an array of ways. But when I listen to this song, there’s just something so hopeful about it. I read this song as a manifesto for living in the present moment. When we do this, we are free from worry, from fear and from pressure. They are the days that we laugh the hardest and take the biggest risks. And ultimately they are the days that we won’t forget. Although time moves on and we all grow older, we collect the memories of these days and they create the map of our life so far. Although time moves on and people fall in and out of our lives, we still hold pieces of them through our memories. And that shouldn’t be a sad thing or something we regret. Memories should be something to smile over, and we should try to recreate similar moments of laughter and joy in new situations. Life is about being happy, so let’s not make it any more difficult for ourselves. Let’s keep positive!
