I will always believe that Chris was one of the greatest songwriters ever, as were many, ok ... all of our roommates except me (I do plan on catching up soon though). Just like a lighthouse was one of my favorites, always will be.
I am reposting the entry below (and comments), from March 2004, it was the second Dancing in the Rain entry ever. This song has followed me throughout my life, my kids all know the words by heart. My X Husband probably does too, though I doubt that he would admit it ; )
So often I direct most of my time and energy to taking care of what's best for the people that I love the most. It can become all consuming and sometimes I forget to take care of what’s most important me.
I want my daily rounds to become more motivated to making necessary choices that will bring more health, joy, love, creativity, passion and contentment to my own life.
Today my journey changes direction as I begin to reclaim my life. I'll be searching for the knowledge and determination to make the crucial changes that will allow me to become the best me that I can be.
This reminds me of a song that Chris, (one of the closest friends that I've ever had) wrote over 25 years ago. The song is called "Just like a Light House." The lyrics included a part that said ... “I’m just like a light house on a stormy sea, if your boat gets lost you can depend on me. When it's cold as the rain and it’s black as the night, look for me and I am always in sight. But all I want to know is who,who looks out for me when I'm looking out for you?”
The truth is ... no one. No one looks out for me. I have spent so much time looking out for everyone else, when I should have spent more time looking out for me.
The journey begins, or should I say continues ...
