You guys, You Me At Six’s Stay With Me EP is so perfect. All three songs are just amazing. Stay With Me studio version is the first song I ever heard from them. The acoustic version is absolutely incredible. And the Starry Eyed cover is great because the original Ellie Goulding version is actually one of my favorite songs.
That line has always reminded me of New Year’s. Everyone spends the minutes before midnight making promises to themselves they know they’ll never keep, making resolutions to change things that honestly probably can’t be altered.
We all spend so much time trying to change. So much that we wind up changing the things that were fine to begin with, until we’re left with nothing but the things we wanted to change in the beginning.
So this year, don’t stress about making resolutions. Don’t tell yourself you’re going to completely change who you are, or you’re going to change someone’s mind about you.
People in your past didn’t make it to your future for a reason.
You are who you are for a reason.
If you spend your life anticipating the future, you miss the present. Then the future comes and you wind up dying without ever having truly lived at all.
So this year, make your resolution to live in the present. Take things a day at a time, and appreciate all the little things that might not be perfect, but are yours.
