Happy New Year!

When I originally thought of what I wanted to write about today, I was going to do a popular song that I’ve probably listened to a million times. Then, I started helping my dad put music on his new  Ipod and I thought about what I wanted for the new year. My goals, my hopes all aligned with a song that I really hadn’t listened to in forever.

Growing up I was one of those kids that loved music, but I loved the really good classics that my parents used to play in the car. I used to belt out Annie Lennox and The Beatles like it was my job. I still love all of these singers and they can sbe found on my Ipod for when I’m in an oldies mood. Thanks to my papa though today’s New Years classic is The Pretenders “I’ll Stand By You”

It has the most beautiful lyrics, and it just makes you want to slow dance with someone.  Reading them I just want to put the whole song on here!

So if you’re mad, get mad
Don’t hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now
Hey, what you got to hide?
I get angry too
Well I’m a lot like you
When you’re standing at the crossroads
And don’t know which path to choose
Let me come along
’cause even if you’re wrong I”ll stand by you

This corresponds with my new years resolution because I think this year my main goal is to just stand by more people. I think it’s just so important to give more people the benefit of the doubt. We all have our moments where we turn into things other than what we are, and I think this year we should all help people out even if they’re wrong. So let’s all be a little nicer, a little wiser, and just a little more adept at falling in love.

Have a very happy new year’s day!

Love, Lindsey
