This song has been stuck in my head all weekend. To be perfectly honest, I can’t even tell you why.
[So I’m going to spend the next thirty minutes agonizing over telling you why, anyway.]
It’s a particularly chaotic time in my life with inordinate amounts of Unknown, but it isn’t unhappy. Still, every time I’ve heard the chorus of this song recently I break down and cry, wherever I’m at, which isn’t typically my modus operandi.
Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.
Life doesn’t always make sense, and as painful as it is for my hyper-analytical mind to accept, sometimes that’s okay.
Sometimes that’s what I need.
Sometimes I just have to accept the unknown, accept the pain and the growth and the joy and the blindsides and the No and the Yes all right along with each other, and I have to know that whatever happens, I will be alright.
And if pressing pause on the world for five minutes and crawling under my blankets to breathe is what it takes to get there, then so be it.
