This is my life, it's not what it was before…

The Daily prompt today was to take a song that I connect with and use a line from it as my post title.

If you don’t recognise it then I introduce you to a band I love at the moment called Staind and my favourite song of theirs, So far away.

So Far Away- Staind

This is my life
Its not what it was before
All these feelings I’ve shared
And these are my dreams
That I’d never lived before
Somebody shake me
‘Cause I
I must be sleeping

[Chorus]
Now that we’re here,
It’s so far away
All the struggle we thought was in vain
All the mistakes,
One life contained
They all finally start to go away
Now that we’re here it’s so far away
And I feel like I can face the day, and I can(‘t) forgive
And I’m not ashamed to be the person that I am today

These are my words
That I’ve never said before
I think I’m doing okay
And this is the smile
That I’ve never shown before

Somebody shake me ’cause I
I must be sleeping

[Chorus]

I’m so afraid of waking
Please don’t shake me
Afraid of waking
Please don’t shake me

[Chorus]

 

This song…there’s a specific line, right at the beginning ‘This is my life, it’s not what it was before’ that resounds in my head and has since I was diagnosed with MS and ended up not being able to teach. But the whole thing could be written about me…it could be about my whole life and the way I’m getting past all these problems and finding some semblance of normality.

‘That I’ve never said before
I think I’m doing okay’

You know what? I do, I think I’m doing ok considering, I think I’m dealing with it pretty well and managing to live a life with some meaning and purpose even though my mind and body are not exactly sound. What more could I ask for?

    1. That’s how I try to think of it…I’ve been through a whole load of shit but have ended up with some good bits as well ‘I think I’m doing ok!’ and you are too 😉 xoxox
