This is bad. I honestly haven’t written a whole song in… 2 months. Lately I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had the chance to catch a breath. This weekend I got to slow down a little bit and catch a breath.
My favorite time to write is when I don’t have to try to write. When my feelings produce the words all on their own. This weekend I started writing a song about regret- a weird thing I’ve been feeling a lot of lately. It creeps in when you do something and then it will come around when you don’t. When you miss a chance and then also when you take it… if you let it. When I’m not careful, I find myself between believing that everything happens for a reason and believing that how I control my life determines how things happen. In reality, the ladder needs pressure and perfection. But believing everything happens for a reason seems more to me like the act of having faith- trusting something out of my hands. It’s mostly about perspective; which one I adopt and how much I have of it. Can you relate?
In addition to writing more, I’m in pursuit of making more time to read. I recently finished reading Boundaries by Henry Cloud and John Townsend- a book I recommend and will definitely pick up again. I would love to read some good fiction books if you have any recommendations!
What’s your favorite book? Like the famous tattoo reads, “no ragrets.” More intention, less regret. Until next time!
