Conquering Emotions one Playlist at a Time: Fast

Life is busy. It seems like we are always going here and there, trying to get all the things on our daily lists marked off. As a working mom of three, I understand how difficult it can be sometimes to balance everything out. 

And as I’m sitting here writing this blog my one year old is crawling all over me, curious as to what I’m doing. Initially I got a little frustrated with the interruption, but then I chose to stop, put the computer down and enjoy some snuggles and play time for a few moments. Time goes by so fast, and too soon he’ll be all grown up. I don’t want to miss the moments, even the smallest ones, that I will treasure forever. 
 
We can’t press pause. We can’t stop time. But we can enjoy the moments in the moment, and create memories that can last a lifetime. 
 
My song choice for this week is “Fast” by Luke Bryan. As I listen to this song it reminds me that life does go by fast, and while we can’t slow it down we can make the most of it. I know that there are life experiences that will challenge us and there will be times we feel like we can’t or don’t want to treasure, but we can try focus more on the positives and create more experiences to remember rather than to forget.

Lyrics:

Fast
That's the kind of car you wanna drive when you're sixteen
Fast
That's the kind of boys that you want on your home team
Fast
Yeah, you think you're gonna catch your big dreams just like that
Fast
And here you are, looking back

Sixty seconds now feels more like thirty
Tick-tock, won't stop, around it goes
Sand through the glass sure falls in a hurry
And all you keep trying to do is slow it down, soak it in
Keep trying to make the good times last as long as you can
But you can't, man
It just goes too fast

Fast
That's what your parents said when we were falling in love
It's too fast
There ain't no way the two of us were ever going to last
But we did, and here we are, and our only problem is

Sixty seconds now feels more like thirty
Tick-tock, won't stop, around it goes
Sand through the glass sure falls in a hurry
And all you keep trying to do is slow it down, soak it in
Keep trying to make the good times last as long as you can
But you can't, man
It just goes too fast

Looking at you looking out the window right now
Those eyes, that dress, that smile, that laugh
If I could hit pause I would somehow
But it don't work like that

Sixty seconds now feels more like thirty
Tick-tock, won't stop, around it goes
Sand through the glass sure falls in a hurry
And all you keep trying to do is slow it down, soak it in
Keep trying to make the good times last as long as you can
But you can't, yeah, man
It goes too fast
It just goes too fast
Way too fast
