Free Original Song: “Supposed to Be” by cc.tran

I was talking to friends the other day about just letting things be and enjoying life - which is often easier said than done. I think it's funny and it's sad how difficult it is to just...bask - to just enjoy what you have without letting thoughts of "what if's" and "what next?" creep into the fold.
