Good afternoon/morning/evening everyone (depending upon where in the world your located.) It’s been three days since I’ve blogged and I’ve terribly missed sharing the cool things I’ve found with you guys. But it was the holiday weekend, so I think it was nice to take that time out and just spend it with family. As I stated in my last post I didn’t really have a big Christmas this year, just cooked and spent time with family. Oh, and most of my day I spent playing Battlefield 3 & Modern Warfare.
Christmas this year was honestly just another day, but it was great spending it with family. It also gave me the time to reflect back on the year, and how 2012 is just right around the corner. I made a lot of choices in 2011, some good, some bad. But life is all about learning from the choices we make, so when I reflect back on all my choices I pat myself on the back. Life is too short to not make choices, take a chance, and dare to dream.
In 2012 I have a lot of choices I know I’ll need to make, especially considering the fact I graduate college in the summer. I have to seriously map out a plan (of course things are subject to change, but least I have a guiding direction.) 2012 is going to be a new start for me. No more friendships that are just a waste of space, and no more settling for men that just don’t treat me right. 2012 is my time to shine. A time for me to transition into a new level of adulthood and independence that comes after college. It’s going to be another year filled with choices, but I think it will be filled with choices that won’t leave my soul restless.
As usual, every time I began reflecting on my life or a concept, I always run across a house song that perfectly fits the context. So when I began thinking about choices and the year ahead, I actually ended up hearing a song related to choices. The song was a house song by The Layabouts and it featured the vocals of Kathy Brown. The song is called “Choices,” but the Restless Soul Vocal Mix is the version that stands out amongst the rest. The soulful beat gives Kathy Brown’s vocals a chance to shine, but the chorus makes you just want to get down on the dance floor. The song makes you want to step, dream, believe, and make choices.
UPDATE: The SONG GOT TAKEN OFF YOUTUBE! But here is the DUB Mix
