I’ve noticed that I haven’t done a Musical Monday in a while. (I’ve also noticed that this is the third one and they’re all six months apart. I didn’t plan that.)
September is coming to a close. Everyone went back to work, back to school, and we’re all in our usual routines again.
While I’m happy, this is a big strange for me. For the past eight years, I’ve always had to deal with that first day of school. I’ve had to deal with working with new teachers, working with new students. I’ve been a robot; my body and mind catering to the preschool schedule, singing the days of the week and learning how to spell my name at the same time each and every day.
I don’t have that anymore.
I quit my job back in June at the end of the previous school year and honestly, I haven’t looked back. But also, it hasn’t quite sunk in until this month.
I usually buy myself some new supplies, a couple new outfits here and there, etc. But I didn’t this year. I bought new supplies for my writing, but I do that all year round. I didn’t buy any new clothes (though I really need to…) because guess what? I can stay in my pajamas all day if I really wanted to.
This song that I’m about to show you is one of my favorites. I love Nickelback. They can be hardcore rock, but can also be very inspiring. When this song first came out in 2014, I thought a lot about myself. About my writing and blogging.
I had been complaining about wanting to go full time with it for so long, but not having enough time to actually pursue it.
Then I did it. I finally figured things out, decided to do what’s right for me, what’s going to make me happy.
Needless to say, this song speaks loudly to me. I hope you enjoy it and it speaks to you, too.
What are you waiting for What are you waiting for Are you waiting on a lightning strike Are you waiting for the perfect night Are you waiting till the time is right?
What are you waiting for?
