This song gives me all the feels. The chorus hits home for me –
It’s amazing the amount of rejection that I see
In my reflection and I can’t get out of the way
I’m lookin’ forward to the girl I wanna be
But regret has a way of starin’ me right in the face
I think we can all relate in some way, shape, or form to this song. From self-rejection, to personal changes, to regrets of the past, to fear of what lies ahead, to…well, the list can go on and on I suppose. This thing called life can be so complicated at times and somehow it feels so refreshing to know we aren’t alone in that feeling. I really like the line that says “so I try not to waste too much time at the bathroom sink.” No amount of time at the “bathroom sink” will ever change what has been. There’s no wishing, hoping, or wanting that can change it either. Wash it away. Let it go down the drain. Stop hurting yourself over things you can’t change. Leave it all behind. Whatever is in the past is just that, the past. It’s been said that there is so much more to your book than the page you’re stuck on. Turning the page isn’t always the easiest thing to do, but here’s to trying. Here’s to facing fears, to building up courage, to loving yourself, to forgiving yourself, to forgiving others, to taking back what is yours, to living your life! Change is never easy, but it’s worth it.
I pray as I get ready
For God to make me steady
And I thank him for his patience
And I take my medication
And bless this day and all it brings
And I clean up the bathroom sink
At the end of the day you have to clean up the “bathroom sink” and start over tomorrow. If you fail today at facing those fears, try again tomorrow. It doesn’t matter if you fail over and over again as longs as you are trying.
