a couple tuesdays ago i was working up a sweat at orange theory fitness when a killer song from trainer chris’ playlist came on over the speakers. its beat was timed perfectly with my push pace on the treadmill, and since i didn’t have my handy dandy notebook with me (blue’s clues reference, anyone?) to jot down some of the lyrics, i remembered just one line so that i could look it up later: “i wanna taste love and pain, i wanna feel pride and shame.”
i hopped online when i got home after class and typed it into my search bar, hopeful that not too many songs had these exact words in this exact order. luck was on my side (and by “luck” i mean google), and after a few clicks, i found it: “could have been me” by the struts.
you see, this is why i love music so much: you never know when you’ll discover your new favorite song or artist. this track is an excellent anthem, one of those songs that everyone, i think, can relate to on some level. me? i must see the world. i have a wild heart that loves to travel. i’ve conquered most of the united states, but nations like china and croatia and italy are calling out to me by name, and if my eyes never set sight on them, i’ll never forgive myself.
what about you? what’s the one thing that you refuse to miss out on in your lifetime? what do you want to say you did rather than what you wish you had done? please share! i’d love to know. 🙂
