When I Try Too Hard

I was just listening to one of my favorite artists, Jack Johnson, and this song got me to thinking:


There have been times in my life when I've been so wrapped up in my own mental anguish that I've chased myself in so many circles I've gotten too weary to go on any longer.  It is times like this when we just need to rest our weary heads awhile. 

And like magic, the storm starts to subside, the skies start to clear, and sometimes, when I've been really lucky, that which I was chasing, appears.

I've always gotten easily 'lost' in music -- it can be so theraputic, especially in tough times in our lives, when we find music we relate to so closely to our personal circumstances. Or it can just give us a boost when we really need it. It can inspire us. I spent much of my teenage-dom with my head in front of the stereo when no one was home -- spent some wonderful times all by myself with Billy Joel or another artist who spoke well to me. :)
