WELCOME 2018!

You know, there was a time when 2018 seemed so very far off in the future. I mean when I actually sat down and thought about these things, it’s not as if I thought we’d have flying cars or anything but it seemed so very far away and the idea of where I would be in my life was so very different than the reality of what it is.

We all probably find ourselves in that boat or at least that’s what I’m telling myself to make it hurt a little less.

The future though ALWAYS holds promise. You can either be a pessimist or an optimist in life, I struggle with this but I push myself to hope things could be better. Yet, it’s a battle each and every day, a battle that I can’t say that I ever win but I keep up the good fight even though I find that songs like this one speak to me on a very deep level.


“Momentum”

Oh, for the sake of momentum
I’ve allowed my fears to get larger than life
And it's brought me to my current agendum
Whereupon I deny fulfillment has yet to arrive

And I know life is getting shorter
I can’t bring myself to set the scene
Even when it's approaching torture
I’ve got my routine

Oh, for the sake of momentum
Even though I agree with that stuff about seizing the day
But I hate to think of effort expended
All those minutes and days and hours
I have frittered away.

And I know life is getting shorter
I can't bring myself to set the scene
Even when it’s approaching torture
I’ve got my routine

But I can’t confront the doubts I have
I can’t admit that maybe the past was bad
And so, for the sake of momentum
I’m condemning the future to death
So it can match the past.

When I can’t confront the doubts I have
I can’t admit that maybe the past was bad
And so, for the sake of momentum
I’m condemning the future to death
So it can match the past.
