Don’t Think Twice

Standard

So, we all know I love

Peter, Paul and Mary

right?

Okay, in case you’re unfamiliar, they were super popular in the 1960s for their folk music.

They did a cover of one of Bob Dylan’s pieces that is personally one of my favorites, Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right. 

I feel inspired by this today.

This song could probably be interpreted as one about a break-up, obviously, but I feel like it’s more than that. It’s as if the narrator is walking away from something that he appreciated and loved, and most likely learned something from, and he’s just giving himself a little pep talk. Like “hey, I know this sucks, but it’s going to be all right.

It’s really a pure genius of a song:

It ain’t no use to sit and wonder why, babe; it don’t matter anyhow.

And it ain’t no use to sit and wonder why, babe, if you don’t know by now.

When the rooster crows at the break of dawn, look out your window and I’ll be gone.

You’re the reason I’m traveling on; don’t think twice, it’s all right.

To me, this song is sort of  saying, “I’m not happy anymore and I can tell that you don’t really care about me, so I’m just gonna go.” Obviously, it isn’t that easy to get up and go, but you know what I mean. I think I’ve spent so much time feeling sad and angry that I haven’t thought about the good times – maybe I’m not quite ready yet – and that is what has made it so hard. When you’re constantly wondering “why,” your mind sort of sticks in one place.

So I think I’m at that point where it’s time to say that I’m ready to move on. Not to someone else, but with my life. I’m ready to do what I want without question, ready to live without worry, ready to follow my dreams! I understand that I’ve been able to do that for a while now, but I just don’t know if I’ve allowed myself to put my whole heart into that ability. Honestly, it’s a really scary thing!

There is no hold on me anymore.

And if you’re feeling the same way today, I hope you know that you are free, too.

It ain’t no use in callin’ out my name, gal – like you never did before.

And it ain’t no use in callin’ out my name, gal; I can’t hear you anymore.

I’m a-thinkin’ and a-wonderin’, walkin’ down the road;

I once loved a woman, a child I’m told; I gave her my heart but she wanted my soul.

But don’t think twice, it’s all right.

Let It Be.

Standard

Song for Today:

And when the night is cloudy there is still a light that shines on me
Shine until tomorrow, let it be
I wake up to the sound of music, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

“Let It Be” – The Beatles

As I conclude my “lesson” today, I want to be on a happier note, I think. Well, you know I love the Beatles so I was playing the infamous Beatles 1 album this morning while I got ready for school. I said that sometimes you just have to move on and that’s definitely true, and this song just summed it up for me! I feel like so much bad and annoying and obnoxious has been going on lately, all just bogging me down! I’m usually the kind of person who just lets things go but it has been so hard to just sit and watch! Anyway, this song made me realize that if we just let things go and chill, eventually there will be an answer.

I think I have just been so tired of fussing and fighting and arguing and getting worked up over petty issues and feeling insecure….I’m just overwhelmed! So my last thought for today is to get my mind off of all the bad things and focus on what needs to be done (Anatomy test, English quiz, Statistics quiz, and some other miscellaneous)  along with what I  need (positive mental and emotional health, maybe?).

I hope if anyone else is struggling today, you can let it be as well.
