“Backed into a corner”… Exactly how I feel. Stressed and pulled into so many different directions. Feelings of sadness and anger are sometimes so overwhelming. Work, family, commute, decisions, money are wearing me thin.

I want to be stronger, I want more control and most of all I want to learn to be happy and to let the little shit go. This is a constant struggle for me. I need to work more on myself, like I used to. I think a part of me is scared of what I may find… Scared of how far I have come and how much work it is going to take to get me back where I want to be.

A personal post tonight accompanied with a sample of Backed Into The Corner, an amazing single from Amy Stroup. Highly recommended, so much so that I am recommending that you purchase it.

A little depressed… Feeling quite defeated.

This is why I have been very distant from my blog, just dealing with a bunch of shit basically.

I can always find refuge in the music…

The new Arcade Fire came out today, I have been listening to it non-stop but not from a leaked copy. :-)

Their music grows on me… But on this album I pretty much loved it instantly, the topics the songs touch upon really resonate with how I am feeling at this time in my life. I feel like I have failed at certain dreams I once had, wondering where I actually want to take this life of mine and still figuring out who I am. These are common emotions and doubts and I think Arcade Fire did a wonderful job of conveying them in their music. Highly recommended.
