Music always has a special place in my heart.
Some of life's greatest lessons I have learned through music because it just touches me in a special way.
Sometimes I will be listening to the radio, just thinking about things, and a song comes that hits me deep.
It may sound cheesy, but it happens.
What's even cheesier is that sometimes I get a bit emotional with this happens.
Today I had one of those moments.
The cause: "Don't Miss Your Life," by Phil Vassar
I have been thinking a lot about my life these past few days.
I have realized that my whole college experience has been so overwhelmed with work, school, and homework....and to be honest, not much play or making fun memories.
Yes, I have had fun memorable experiences, but I feel that a lot of that has been lacking the past few years.
I let life experiences shape me into the girl I never wanted to become- the one who is all work and no play!
It really hit me hard today while I was trying to focus on my homework, but my mind kept wandering to the fun things I could be doing.
At first I thought it was just senioritis kicking in, which could very well be true, but it is coupled with the fact that I let myself get burned out.
So when I heard this song, I realized, in my own way, I was missing my own life.
Missing out on opportunities and memories due to worries and stress that I shouldn't.
It's time to change that and to stop letting my life pass me by!
Here's to a better balanced life with more joy!
