obsessed with up and up

this song randomly came on my pandora (jack’s mannequin station) and i’m obsessed. 

RELIENT K, up and up:

Yesterday Is not quite what it could’ve been
As were most of all the days before
But I swear today
With every breath I’m breathing in
I’ll be trying to make it so much more

Cause it seems I get so hung up on
The history of what’s gone wrong
And the hope of a new day Is sometimes hard to see (what you see)
And though I’m finally catching onto it
And now the past is just a conduit
And the light there at the end is Where I’ll be

Cause I’m on the up and up
I’m on the up and up
And I haven’t given up
Given up on what I know I’m capable of
And I’m on the up and up
I’m on the up and up
Yeah there’s nothing left to prove
Cause I’m just trying to be
A better version of me
For you

To be prosperous Would not require much of me
You see contentment is the one thing It entails
To be content with where I am
And getting where I need to be
I’m moving past the past
Where I have failed

i don’t really feel i need to comment or say anything too profound here.  this year has been rough for everyone, some more than others, and i think in such environments, you have a personal choice to make: play victim or move on, up and up, if you will.  i love music, of all kinds, i always have.  part of it comes from my babbo, who instilled in us how important it is to be able to express yourself, especially musically (he played the organ/piano his entire life).  i know he didn’t like the fact that i stopped playing my instrument, but music remains something very important to me.  i love that moment when you hear a song for the first time and a snippet of the lyrics just click with you at that very moment and is so perfect for that exact second in your life.  it’s magic.
