We all have wishes, desires and regrets. The lyrics to this song always brings me to a place of NOW. Were taught to attain this, be that, etc. so you will be what society deems you should be. Living this way kills our souls.
I used to wish that I was great as any man, better than I am, could do things no one can. And I used to wish that I was cool as I could be, but now I’m learning to live with me. Is anybody satisfied with who they really are, you could be the moon and still be jealous of the stars. You gotta learn to swim if you can’t walk upon the sea, so I’m learning to live with me. And I used to wish that I was braver than the rest a hero nothin less, a big duke in the west, but I know the way I am is who I’m gonna be, so I’m learning to live with me. Is anybody satisfied with who they really are, you could be the moon and still be jealous of the stars, you gotta learn to swim if you can’t walk upon the sea, so I’m learning to live, learning to forgive, learning to live with me.
In closing I would like to say that we are all individuals and we are not the same. Stop trying to emulate to fit in, you will never be happy until you are true to yourself. Stop judging others, try to understand them, talk to them, listen to them and your awakening of who you are will begin to unfold in front of you.
Until next time, remember to smile your day will be brighter!!!
