listening to certain songs takes me back and has such an effect on me that sometimes i can cry.
when tears fall, maybe its nostalgic of me, but i reminisce and go back to feel how good a song made me feel.
sometimes i tear up thinking about how sweet or dope i felt. like legit feelings of happiness and good times that take me back to sweet bliss. in those moments i remember how beautiful my life journey has been.
while i also have music i don’t revisit, occasionally i hear them on local radio stations. when those play, i will self reflect on that time in my life and try to remember details. what was i doing, where was i at (mentally, spiritually, emotionally, physically) and i will not lie on this. i have had some cringe worthy moments in life that are humbling to say the least.
learning myself has taught me to be forgiving and understanding especially of others because i wasn’t always as conscious and self aware as i am today.
life is funny that way and music has a way of opening our hearts to forgiveness.
life may be a gamble, and sadly, i’m not a gambler.
so how do i play when all i see is a spade? ♠️
