Yesterday was Sluggish Saturday (my own fault). Today is (somehow) laidback and thoughtful Sunday. And as those days go, your mind tends to wander. Suddenly, like a hook, it snags on a specific stream of thought, and you just can't let go of it.
That's what I have been thinking of all day. Today's devotional reading was about change. I think that's why I cannot keep it out of my head.
The years that add up and change.
Some changes I have noticed - the good and the bad thrown in the mix.
- You become more open to different experiences, music included. I've posted about The Gotan Project, an awesome group that I can't stop listening to right now. If you had asked me five - no, even two - years ago, I would never have even considered listening to them. Now, I am not an audiophile. I know how to play some instruments but I am not skilled. While I don't mind looking at hardware like Morley Volume Pedals, I don't have anything except an acoustic guitar and an electronic keyboard which doesn't work anymore I think. Anyhow, yes, while there are still staples in my playlist, more new stuff is added quite often.
- You learn how to be less uptight and controlling. I suppose this does not apply to everyone, and I am not saying that I am not in the least bit uptight or controlling. I have always liked keeping to myself and being in control of everything that happened to me. Unfortunately, the Universe has a different idea and has thrown lots of things my way to teach me to loosen up. Still lots of room for improvement, but I am getting there.
- You can't go out all night every single night and expect to function normally. Do I really need to say more about this?
- You have to learn how to take care of a baby on your own. NO, I do not have a kid, but at this point, everyone seems to have one. That means taking one for the team at least once and playing nanny when there is a need. Oh, and it won't kill you. ;)
Now watch/listen to this. Gotan Project's Last Tango in Paris. Perfect background music for the day!
