I'm going to keep today's post short and sweet, as well. I'm sitting at my gate in Las Vegas airport and my prompt for today is my favorite quote. This one is tricky because so many quotes or passages, from those wiser than I, have inspired me or carried me through tough times. However, there is one quote that I love for it's beauty, simplicity, and truth. It's from the band, Semisonic, in their song "Closing Time."
"Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end."
This quote brings a mixture of emotions. It's vague enough to allow the listener/reader to connect whatever situation they're going through. It offers hope. If you're going through a hard time, it will end. If you're having the time of your life, that too will end. Life is full of bittersweet moments. We all go through our own unique roller coaster of a journey to become who we are.
I gravitate toward quotes/lyrics from songwriters because of the poetry and artistry of them. So many inspirational quotes can be taken from amazing speeches, but for me, music runs deep. Their words combined with the the right sequence of notes and chords has the ability to reach my subconscious and bring up feelings I didn't know I had.
Words are a powerful tool. There are so many quotes out there to uplift and encourage, but I find solace in this one from Semisonic. No matter where you're at in life, there is always a new journey to be had.
