25 Songs, 25 Days (Day 16) A Song That Has Made Me Cry

Life is pain.  It is beauty and comfort and love too, but those things don’t come without a lot of pain along the way.  I’ve had problems that have made me wish it would all end.  I’ll bet you have too.  There is nothing like pain to teach us about life.

The words I can’t take back.  The promises I broke.  The poor choices I made.

You could probably protect yourself from this kind of suffering.  You could lock yourself away from the world.  You could deny yourself the chance to find love and friendship and face challenges.  And that would not be a life I’d want to live.

Instead,

  • Check your pride.
  • Make mistakes.
  • Love until it hurts.
  • Speak your mind.
  • Do something frightening.
  • Run the race.
  • Shed tears.
  • Express anger.
  • Feel deeply.

 

Let the pieces fall where they may.  It might be years before you get them all put back in place again.  But when you do, you will be older and wiser and you will have learned.

Peace . . .
