rediscover

Thinking back

Ever hear a song from the past and instantly get transported back to that time in your life? Well this just happened to me the other day, and I remembered how the lyrics to this song helped me in a huge growth experience of my life several years back. It reminded me of the love I felt for humanity at that exact time and how open our futures are. I was at a crossroads at the time, not really sure which way my life was going to pan out (then again- who is ever really sure?). These words made me feel comfort and love for whichever way things would happen.

The song is called “Hey Brother”, written by Ash Pournouri,  Salem Al Fakir, Tim Bergling,  Veronica Maggio and Vincent Fred Pontare. Here is an excerpt:

Hey brother! There's an endless road to rediscover

Hey sister! Know the water's sweet but blood is thicker

Oh, if the sky comes falling down, for you

There's nothing in this world I wouldn't do

 

Hey brother! Do you still believe in one another?

Hey sister! Do you still believe in love? I wonder

Oh, if the sky comes falling down, for you

There's nothing in this world I wouldn't do

 

What if I'm far from home?

Oh brother, I will hear you call!

What if I lose it all?

Oh sister, I will help you out!

Oh, if the sky comes falling down, for you

There's nothing in this world I wouldn't do

New beginnings

When I hear these words, I think of humans and how connected we all really are. Also how most of us would do anything to help those we love- this is the part about humanity that brings tears to my eyes.

My other favorite line in this song is “there’s an endless road to rediscover”. No one really knows what is in the future. We all have ideas of what we want to happen and how we hope things will be. Have you ever noticed how many things happen in just the span of a year? Things you would have never expected or guessed. Let alone the future of your life as a whole?! This line reminds me of how many paths we COULD embark on in our lives. Every minute we are faced with decisions- do this or do that. Each one we choose in every minute of our life leads us in a new direction and we forge ahead! Just think about all of the possibilities!

You are loved by so many- just think about a person who would do anything to make sure you are ok. We all have at least one of these people in our lives in some form (and usually have more than we think we do). How special is that? We are all so lucky in this way.

Love and caring for each other is what makes the world go around.
