It’s in waiting that I have learnt how strong I am -Bimpe

Hello all,

I started this series on my old blog, and I’ve wanted to continue it for so long on this new blog but I’ve been feeling all funny and nostalgic, wanting to keep my old blog to myself. I know, that doesn’t even make any sense, but then what in my life does nowadays? (That’s a story for another day).

Anyways, its called Music Collection Mondays, its a platform where I share songs that speak to me or have spoken to a situation in my life at some point on Mondays, hence the name, because I share from my own collection. I do hope that on this blog, other people get to share theirs too. Just leave a comment below indicating your interest if you want to share yours.

Its not a Monday but hey, its my blog! I can share it any day I want, lol.

This song is by Kina Grannis, and it speaks to me so much right now, its all I tell myself when these billion things come to my mind.

If there’s one thing that God has used to teach me a lot of lessons in my life, its TIME. It has a way of sorting things out and rearranging priorities. It shows you that nothing is impossible, that ANYTHING can change. In the past one month of my life, I think I’ve had more questions than I’ve ever had. I’ve questioned so many decisions and been so indecisive all at once; I’ve asked God, asked myself, asked my friends, why I’m doing so many things, wondering what the nearest and latter future holds, I’ve kept more secrets than my mind can take, told myself so many lies, broken down just too many walls, felt a billion things all at ones, cried, laughed, been really happy, been really sad, been really confused, it’s like just too many things are happening around me all at once. Some days I’ve felt  like my brain will burst out of my head, all in this past one month.

But I tell myself just what this song says,  I’ve made it this far, maybe i’ll be okay, maybe I’m not crazy, and even if I  am, I’ve made it this far and so have you. Time will do what it does, so all we can do is wait.

 This far by Kina Grannis

You know it’s harder when you hold me
You get me searching for the ceiling
Love tried to forget things
It’s so hard
It’s so hard

So I’ll keep going through the motions
Creating comfort where there is none
Coming to terms with the notion
I’ll be okay
Okay

When rain falls down on me so hard
The winds unravelling me don’t start
An ocean swallowing up my heart
But I’ve made it this far
I’ve made it this far

It’s hard to see happy ending
When you don’t see how you can mend things
But life is long and forgiving
And it goes on and on and on

When rain falls down on me so hard
The winds unravelling me don’t start
An ocean swallowing up my heart
But I’ve made it this far

And I’ll keep wishing on a bright star
That we’ll keep driving all the right cars
And I’ll keep singing when it goes dark
‘Cause I’ve made it this far
I’ve made it this far
I’ve made it this far
