Lately, I’ve been contemplating what if I died tomorrow? Would I have no regrets? What effect would that have on my family? my friends? I wonder if they’d miss me. This is one of the reasons I am trying so hard to be honest with the people that matter in my life. We never know when our time will be up and it’s best to be prepared. I want the people who matter know how much they mean to me before it’s too late.
A good friend of mine introduced this song to me. He’s a superb guitar player and we sometimes jam. Actually we have an acoustic band! Him, me, my older brother, and another good friend. They’re all super awesome guitar players, and I’m just the singer. haha. But it’s all good fun. We get together every once in a while and jam, maybe take a video or two. Going back to the song, I especially like the line “funny when you’re dead how people start listening”. It just opened my eyes to the fact that maybe we’re too preoccupied thinking of ourselves that we tend to forget to listen to others. And so that is what I learned this week: Listen.
When did you last listen to someone’s words?
