Hello readers!! Boy has it been awhile.. I got super busy with getting a first real job and training for two months and finally moving out to Austin, Texas! I just moved out to Austin a week ago and decided I wanted to get back to writing for this blog and to be more consistent with it. So here goes nothing.
Moving to Austin was something that I wanted to do but did not fully realize how tough it would be to leave home and my parents. I had almost a year at home with my parents after I graduated and I am so glad I had that time with them. But, now it’s time to move on with life and continue to grow. With that being said, moving down to Austin and finally having my parents leave was very sad and a little overwhelming in a way. I do not know many people in this city ( about two) so this is a scary and somewhat lonely part of life’s journey. But, a necessary step! It’s important to not get too sad and down though, because I look at everything I have going for me, the opportunities that await me, the love and support from friends and family and of course music. After going through the super sad emotions I started to perk up a bit, and one song in particular inspired this post. For those who have read some of my posts, it’s no secret that I am a huge John Mayer fan and believe there’s a Mayer song for everyone. The song that has stuck out to me recently is one by him called “On The Way Home.” It’s a great tune with a nice little summer vibe to it. The line that sticks out to me though and rings so true is “just remember on the way home, you were never meant to feel alone, it takes a little while but you’ll be fine another good time coming down the line.” I mean there’s really no explanation needed for this one, it’s pretty black and white. But boy does that line from the first chorus really lift my spirits and put it all in perspective. It gets you realizing all the past times you’ve felt a similar way and how all those times turned into another good thing after sometime. Maybe it was as a kid when summer was ending and you had to go back to school ( which is pretty much what the song is about), or maybe a vacation ending and you had to go back to work. Either way, more good times have always come along after those moments. So, as I’m out here in Austin on my own, I take comfort and truth in this song knowing that I’ll get my life going here eventually and things will be grand. What are some songs or lyrics that get you guys in a happier state of mind? As always, if you like what you read please like, subscribe, and share!
