From my random mind….

Since New Year’s Eve 2005, Crystal, Meg and I have had a tradition (Meg started it!) where instead of making new years resolutions we chose a theme to define the year ahead. Resolutions get broken way to easily (mine are usually done by January 2!) The first year, mine was “Expect the unexpected” which was followed quickly by “Be content where you are”. After that came “Play the Game” and last year was “No Day but Today”; learning to take life one day at a time, not trying to borrow trouble from the next day.
This year, my theme is: Found.

It is taken from the lyrics to a song by the Fray.
I found God
On the corner of First and Amistad
Where the west
Was all but won
All alone
Smoking his last cigarette
I said, Where you been?
He said, Ask anything.

Where were you
When everything was falling apart?
All my days
Were spent by the telephone
That never rang
And all I needed was a call
It never came
To the corner of First and Amistad

Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lying on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Why’d you have to wait?
Where were you, where were you?
Just a little late
You found me, You found me

In the end
Everyone ends up alone
Losing her
The only one who’s ever known
Who I am
Who I’m not, and who I want to be
No way to know
How long she will be next to me

Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lying on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Why’d you have to wait?
Where were you, where were you?
Just a little late
You found me, You found me

Early morning
The city breaks
I’ve been calling
For years and years and years and years
And you never left me no messages
You never sent me no letters
You got some kind of nerve
Taking all I want

Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lying on the floor
Where were you, where were you?

Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lying on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Why’d you have to wait?
Where were you, where were you?
Just a little late
You found me, You found me

Why’d you have to wait
To find me, to find me?

I gotta little lost after I finished Grad school. I changed so much in the 12 months I was becoming a behavior analyst. Some changes for the good, and the jury is still out on some others. But all those changes left me struggling to figure out where I am, who I am and what I need to do… But I’m done being lost. I am ready to be found…
