“How long til my soul gets it right … can any human being ever reach that kind of light … “
For someone as impatient as I am, I feel like the past year and a half has been about patience and waiting for “my soul to get it right.”
I wouldn’t say I’m there quite yet, but every day I feel a bit closer to being (another Indigo Girls tune) “closer to fine.” 😉
I couldn’t get “Galileo” out of my head this weekend and realized there was a message in there for me. Because whenever I listen to Indigo Girls, I’m taken back to my college years and my girls. They were happy, easy times … long before 9/11, before we all had careers and homes and husbands and babies. Our biggest concern back then was deciding who to invite to a crush party and getting to class on time (thanks to our mutual Starbucks addiction, we didn’t usually make it on time!).
It was a simpler time … and I think I need to channel some of that “simple” energy right now. We’re about to enter the crazy holiday season, and there’s no time like the present to do a little inner soul-searching. Care to join me?
How about you? Are there any lyrics that you always come back to for inspiration? Or any lyrics that you hold dear?
