Sometimes I stumble across a song and get a bit fixated on it, playing it several times a day, mostly in the car when I’m on my own, learning all the words and feeling a deep connection to it in the process.
There is a LOT going on right now. A LOT. A combined birthday gathering, a baptism lunch, four Scouts break-ups, a drama performance, a Prep breakup picnic, birthday cake in the park, cakes to bake, Christmas shopping to do…
So yeah, just your usual December….
This song came on one of the Spotify Radio lists that I listen to and I’ve been obsessed with it for weeks.
Mama once told me you’re already home where you feel loved
I am lost in my mind, I get lost in my mind
How’s that brick layin’ coming
How’s your engine running
Is that bridge getting built
Are your hands getting filled
Won’t you tell me my brother
‘Cause there are stars…… up above
We can start…… moving forward
Moving forward has been such a big part of my life for the last three years, and my last three months also. You don’t move on from things, you move forward with them. All the things that happen in your life, the good and bad, are a part of you from that moment on whether you like it or not. And you have a choice: You either fight with it and try and run from it, or you move forward with it; carrying it as a badge of honour, or a shield of armour. It’s not to say these events define you, they just add to your character and charm, if you let them.
In the meantime, I shall be listening to this song on repeat – even the kids have started singing along – and get lost in my mind 🙂
