Just as seasons come and go… so do the people in our lives.
Skies may change, and leaves are swept away.
We can only take one last look.
… and tread on.
Well, where do I even begin? I guess first off, thank you for even choosing to read this description box. I know I’ve been on hiatus from releasing dance videos for months now. I chose to shift my attention to my Kinjaz brothers and our time on America’s Best Dance Crew. I can go into the whole experience on how the show was… but this description box is neither the right place or time to do so. What I can say though, is now that it is over and done, that it's just another chapter to close and where another begins. This piece that you see here… is very personal to me. When I came across this song several weeks ago, the first word that came to my mind was “powerful”. There hasn’t been music that’s hit me, with this much impact, in a long time. He sings about a woman in his life who he has relations with, and how as HARD as they both try… realize that their paths no longer cross… and have to bring their time to an end.
To me, this can be anyone. In the broad scheme of things, people coming and going throughout our lives is a natural occurrence. But, that doesn’t mean it’s always easy... I find myself asking,
“Where did this person go?”, or “I wonder how this person is doing?”, “Are they happy?”, “Do they remember me?”
Over the years, you start to look back and realize how many people you’ve lost touch with. People that you truly cared about. A painful reminder that sometimes… life just happens… and tragically there’s not much we can control. This made me re-evaluate the people that are in my life today… and how at any moment… this can change as easily as the leaves change in fall. Seasons.
To end on a lighter note… I believe that what we CAN do, is cherish the ones we love NOW. There’s so much in life that isn’t guaranteed. Look around at your loved ones, and remember them. This moment in your life, won’t ever happen again. Time is incredibly precious. So, make the most of it.
Thanks for listening.
I hope you are touched, encouraged, and inspired.
