Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with tasks that are set in front of me. Taking over 15 hours of school coupled with a part time job working promotions/events for KSL broadcasting tends to leave me with little time to really sit back and relax. Just yesterday I realized it's been almost an entire month since i've played my guitar. I use to maybe at most go two weeks without playing it.
Even then I thought it was a almost a cardinal sin. I would spend an hour or two playing my guitar to unwind from a long day at work or school. It's where i clear my head from the world and express feelings i can't always convey other ways. In some ways I feel more like me the moment I pick up the guitar and learn a song I love or write one of my own. I only share this to say don't forget to experience the little things you love to do.
Even if you seem too busy with school or work remember they are what make you "you". Life's too short. Sometimes you just need to take a step back and do what makes you feel free. I for one will do my best to follow my own advice.
We've all felt the flame and shed those same tears
Driving home to a one man hell, still counting years, still counting years
Hey brother we're all learning to love again
'Cause that was the real you running through the fields of gold wide open
Standing in places no picture contains
That was the real you, windows down, we could smell the mint fields crying
Sing with the radio to song we can't name
That was the real
You saying, "Maybe I'm not too young to be a cowboy."
