This is from one of my favorite songs: “I Will Wait” from Mumford and Sons.
I have a tendency to be impulsive. I do things without always thinking them through and usually just because I want to make someone happy or make their lives easier. And lots of times, this makes things a lot harder for me. I end up getting hurt in the end or my life becomes a lot more complicated than if I had just waited. I say “yes” way too often and take on a lot more than I should.
This line speaks to me because sometimes I look back on things I have done or agreed to or said and I think, “I’m a lot stronger than this,” and I get frustrated. I need to remember that it’s okay to be strong. And bold. And using my head in cooperation with my heart works out. For everyone.
