"All I can do is be me, whoever that is." -Bob Dylan
My name is Tom. These are pieces of me.
As a minor. Life is about to get that much more awesome!
Have you ever looked in the mirror and not recognized yourself?
I had this experience for the first time about 30 minutes ago
I wasn’t sure if was the lack of shaving for the past couple days
Maybe the longer, bed head ridden hair
It could not have been my pjs
I mean, those have remained constant over the past couple years
No, it was my eyes
They are the windows to the soul, after all
I’m not the same person I remember
Not as naive
It’s not as easy to love others
Or willing to let just anyone into my heart
It has to be for the better
Why else do people change?
It’s intriguing how music can be a timeline through our lives. We listen to certain artists and songs during specific times as we age. Then, as we grow, our tastes change on multiple occasions.
However, what we don’t realize until later is when we stumble across older music of ours, the old memories and feelings can come flooding right back. Thoughts that haven’t passed through in what seems like eons. Possibly the admiration for an old beau, the bitterness towards a tragic event, or the elation we felt when spending time with old friends during our younger years.
It has a way of putting things in perspective. We can learn from these previous experiences, and utilize them to our advantage. Other times it’s just a nice way to reminisce on the good times, and put out the bad ones. A reminder that life isn’t all bad but rather enjoyable, in fact.
