Well I just thought I'd write a quick note, and share a song I've really been enjoying lately. It kinda fits a day like today too. It's called 'Keep Your Eyes Open' by Needtobreathe. I love Needtobreathe, they're one of my favorites. They opened for Taylor Swift on this last tour, and one of their songs was on P.S. I Love You. Look up More Time, Something Beautiful, and Looks Like Love if you want more great songs by them. So pause the music on the right, and click play on the video below, because this song is amazing.
I love this song, Keep Your Eyes Open, because I feel like it describes this point in my life. Graduating from high school, going to college, moving on with my life. What I do now is all up to me. The chorus of the song, if you haven't listened to it yet, says 'Cause if you never leave home, never let go, You'll never make it to the great unknown till you Keep your eyes open, my love. So tell me you're strong, tell me you see, I need to hear it can you promise me to Keep your eyes open, my love.' I guess I'm just feeling like now that I'm on my own, who I hang out with and what I do with my life is up to me. I can continue to stay in my comfort zone, hold on to what has happened in the past. I can stay in high school, caught up with drama, stereotypes, and pointless gossip, or I can move on. Meet new people, try new things, stop judging, live life a little more than I have been doing. Now is the time to prioritize, decide what I'm doing and what matters to me. All I gotta do is Keep my eyes open and see what life brings me.
Ah rain. You make me feel so deep and philosophical.
