I stood waiting in a Starbucks without headphones today.
And an endless line.
A Maroon 5 song came on.
Adam Levine’s voice is my very own version of nails on a chalkboard.
But then I listened.
It was a song called “one more night.”
It could have described my life for a good four months.
Then I laughed.
And grinned gleefully.
Because it wouldn’t describe my current life at all
Which is joyful, really
‘cause Adam Levine sux.
That’s the problem with putting others first; you’ve taught them you come second.
The truth is, life is rarely exactly the way we want it to be, and other people often don’t act as we would like them to. Moment to moment, there are aspects of life that we like and others that we don’t. There are always going to be people who disagree with you, people who do things differently, and things that don’t work out.
"I dwell in possibility." - Emily Dickinson
