I don't know about you but I relate a lot of my life memories, feelings, journeys, and all of my emotions to songs that were played by me, or were being played on the radio during those certain times in my life.
Like "No Hands" by wakka flocka, reminds me of my trip to Florida. I remember jamming out to it on repeat in the 27 hour drive. I hate rap, so it's crazy that the one genre I hate, holds one of my biggest memories.
So on my morning Pandora party a song came on that made me stop and smile.
As many of you know one of my most talked about topics was the loss of my grandfather, and finding life after his death. The first year was very very very hard for me, I was in college, an hour away from home, adjusting to the fact that my favorite person was not ever going to be present in my life again, at least not physically.
There are a number of songs that remind me of the sorrow, and the sadness that I felt, there are times when I can barley listen to those songs because all it does is flood back unhappy memories, and hurtful emotions.
but this certain song does not remind me of my grandfather, this song reminds me of my wonderful, beautiful mother who always told me to listen to this song, because one day things would make sense, one day I would be happy again, and One day I will...
but I cannot believe how right she was when it came to this song. Every single word hits my heart and it does nothing now but make me smile. I have found the "me I was meant to be" and it is everything my mother is.
