I'm putting off work again by listening to music, it seems to be something I do to frequently, but really, who wants to work on a compensation report on a Saturday afternoon. Doesn't the fact that I'm doing laundry mean I'm not just being lazy, I'm just working in a different way?

One of my favorite songs just came on, so I thought I'd put off work a little longer by blogging about it. Gary Allan's "Life Ain't Always Beautiful" has such amazing lyrics. It's one of those songs I put on when I'm having a bad day or just need to remind myself that the struggles in life are the things that really make living worth it.

Life ain't always beautiful
Sometimes it's just plain hard
Life can knock you down, it can break your heart

Life ain't always beautiful
You think you're on your way
And it's just a dead end road at the end of the day

But the struggle makes you stronger
And the changes make you wise
And happiness has it's own way of takin' it sweet time

No,life ain't always beautiful
Tears will fall sometimes
Life ain't always beautiful
But it's a beautiful ride

Life ain't always beautiful
Some days I miss your smile
I get tired of walkin' all these lonely miles

And I wish for just one minute
I could see your pretty face
Guess I can dream, but life don't work that way

But the struggles makes me stronger
And the changes make me wise
And happiness has it's own way of takin' its sweet time

No, life ain't always beautiful
But I know I'll be fine
Hey, life ain't always beautiful
But its a beautiful ride
What a beautiful ride

Pin It
