Valentine's Day is right around the corner -- but it doesn't matter! My Eva Via original duet, Year-Round Valentine, is about how, when you're in love, every day can feel like Valentine's Day.
Even Valentine's Day.
I've often said that most people would be a lot happier if they could live their whole life like they're traveling. I don't mean going parasailing and hopping on planes. I mean deploying the same curious eyes and hungry mind in your everyday life that you do while you're overseas.
I actually have a song about this. It's called A Lifetime in a Day. It sounds like a love song, and it vaguely is, but it's mostly about how I live every single day like it's my only day...
So every day feels like an entire lifetime.
Similarly, most couples would be a lot happier if they could life their whole relationship like it's Valentine's Day.
Which I thought of today when this memory popped up on my Facebook memories:
I think my favorite thing about that whole relationship, which lasted years, was how every single day, we'd do shit like singing A Whole New World on a pile of rugs at Costco. No matter how long we were together, it never stopped feeling like we were IN love.
Which is why I sing, in Verse 2 of Year-Round Valentine:
And then, in Verse 3, I continue:
Shooting hoops can feel like throwing a ball at a basket, or it can feel like winning championships.
Dating can feel like buying an obligatory bouquet one day a year, or it can feel like letting yourselves be silly together and flying over the ancient pyramids during a "boring" shopping trip.
Life can feel like jobs and chores and to-do lists, or you can channel your wonder every day.
It's all about mindset. (And probably a bit of hardwiring.)
So get mindful and intentional about the world around you -- and enjoy these Eva Via originals! Since Presidents Day is also coming right up, you'll also want to listen to Jefferson.
It's about Thomas Jefferson, but Lincoln and Washington are in it, too.
