On Friday's I share a song that caught my attention. A line or lyric that made me stop and think, inspired me, or caused me to see something in a new way. I hope you'll play along and share songs that inspired you.
I finally got around to watching the series finale of One Tree Hill. I'll admit it isn't the smartest show on television, but somehow it lasted 9 years, and for most of those years I've followed along. It has had some of the craziest story lines on TV (a dog eating a heart scheduled for transplant....) but at its core it was all about some pretty amazing relationships.
I've tried to figure out why I love this show so much and came up with three reason: its small town setting (I grew up in a small town), its focus on sports (I have a career in sports), its amazing soundtrack (I think having a great soundtrack is essential not just to TV shows but to life.)
The show ended (as it began each week) with a great song from Gavin DeGraw: I Don't Want to Be. It had been a long time since I actually stopped and listened the lyrics, but I am so glad I did, because honestly, they are genius and the kind of lyrics we need to listen to on those days we start doubting ourselves.
I don't want to be
Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do
Is think of me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms
Wondering what I've got to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anyone other than me
Are you a One Tree Hill fan? Did you love the finale as much as I did?
Is there a song that inspired you this week?
