Maybe it’s the first line that has me thinking about this song.
Maybe birthdays make me nostalgic and reflective.
Am I where I thought I’d be at 35?
I never really had much of a plan.
Just to be happy, have a family, friends, work that I like.
As for the bumps along the way, well… we all have them, right?
But if life stayed the way it was
And lovers never fell out of love
If memories didn’t last so long
If nobody did nobody wrong
If we knew what we had before it was gone
If every road led back home
This would be
The very last country song*
If everything were simple and easy, we wouldn’t have much of a story to tell, would we? That might not be the very last country song, but it might be the very last blog post.
But for today, I’ll focus on all the good I have in my life and realize that everything that has happened and everything that will happen: it’s just a part of my story.
No one is promised a perfect life, but we can choose how we see our lives.
I’m choosing to celebrate 35 years… not of a perfect life, but of a good one.
