Last week I asked in a post what our readers would like to protest. We got some fun answers, but we also had a lot of commenters remark that they were getting agitated as they thought about things that really bothered them.
Kind of like how I used to get whenever I heard Coldplay.
Yes, I realize that I’m probably in the minority here. Everybody and their brother seems to like Coldplay these days. But I’ve never been a fan.
And now that people are oohing and aahing about their latest release, it looks like I’ll be hearing a lot more of Coldplay in the coming weeks.
It would probably be a traffic-boosting source of controversy if I spent the next few paragraphs trashing Coldplay and telling everyone how I don’t like their music very much.
But really, who would that serve in the end?
Frankly, dwelling on things that bother me is downright exhausting. It’s like trying to dig your way out of a hole. The more you gripe, the more you seem to find stuff to gripe about.
Sharing that gripe would be nothing more than an attempt to drag a few more people in and get them as agitated as me.
I don’t know about you, but I really don’t want to go there.
So, I won’t!
I’m not going to rant about Coldplay here. Truth be told, I’ve listened to a few of the songs from their new release, and they are starting to grow on me.
Like this one:
So what if I don’t like Coldplay? Well, I suppose I could dwell on it and get upset.
What I would rather do is think about some things that are worth celebrating.
Some may be big and obvious, like the Gospel. Others we may take for granted but really miss when they aren’t there, like comfortable 100% cotton underwear, hot showers, clean drinking water, and bacon.
Either way, there are plenty of things worth celebrating out there.
What are some of yours?
