Sometimes it feels as though the universe is aligning perfectly with me and the SLS theme choice for the week. I honestly had no idea what song to pick, but I found myself watching figure skating last night (what else would one do on a Saturday night?) and one of the skaters did her long program to this song. It didn’t take me long to realize this was the perfect choice.
First of all, I love Muse – I’ve posted quite a few of their songs here on the blog. Second, there’s just something about this song. There aren’t many lyrics to it, but what is there is powerful.
I find that forgiving myself is usually one of the harder things to do. It’s hard to make mistakes and hurt people you love, but I’ve found that holding on to the hurt and the anger, whether it’s directed at yourself or others, only prolongs and intensifies the pain. Life is too short and each day isn’t guaranteed. I’m not saying anger and pain won’t happen, but I’ve learned that the sooner I look at it, accept it for whatever it is and then release it, the happier I am and the happier the people around me are.
Besides, this world could use a whole lot more forgiveness and whole lot less anger.
I hope you enjoy!

Why can’t we start it over again
Just let us start it over again
And we’ll be good
This time we’ll get it, get it right
It’s our last chance to forgive ourselves
