“but i want you to know that you'll never be alone
i wanna believe, do i make myself a blessing to everyone i meet?
when you fall i will get you on your feet
do I spend time with my family?
did it show when i was weak?
when that's what you see, that will be me...”
🎶 ‘that wasn’t me’
🌊 north shore, oahu ———
circa 2010 a coworker had concert tickets to a local venue, she wasn’t going to be able to make it last minute, so she offered the ticket to myself & another friend.
at that juncture, id never listened to brandi carlile but figured if nurse reed liked her, i may as well.
ive been a fan ever since, but this song is still on a well-listened-to play list.
i think because, ultimately, the whole goal in life is to be a blessing to those that cross my path. and, though i fail often, this song grounds me back to home base.
what matters most.
more than a trophy, more than status, more than money...my ability to love and be kind, or not, is the truest definition of self (lessness). i guess you could say the final verse of this song, is indeed, #goals
