Somehow this Tracy Chapman song takes on a different meaning for me these days. Events that happened in my family recently have made me think about my priorities in life. I have to set aside my wants and focus more on what needs to be done. Yeah, life can be a bitch.
Somewhere Only We Know
I have been reminded by this Keane song that every second counts and one minute wasted could mean a potential screw up. Though I believe in taking things slow once in a while, there are times when you got to do or have it now or else time will pass you by.
Born This Way
I never liked this Lady Gaga song but I think it would make a strong point in my case. One of life’s lessons I have learned is that people tend to like the norm. Whatever is common or ordinary is accepted and what’s different or odd is usually shunned and rejected. Society dictates that we follow the rules, ignoring the fact that there might be gems beneath those differences.
The Zephyr Song
This Red Hot Chili Peppers song is about escapism for me. To get away from the daily pressures of life is what I need these days. It would be nice not to think or worry about anything in particular for a while and just relax. I was a workaholic before but now I am maintaining a more balanced lifestyle – or at least, I am trying to.
