Say what you need to say

As we approach the holiday season, there’s so much to be thankful for, things to cherish.  If there’s ever been a time to heal old wounds and bring people closer together, it’s now.  It’s not just because of the time of year, but because of the time in our lives.
 
Life is too short to hold onto past faults, experiences, grudges, or words said in haste. It’s too short to hold onto something you’ll regret only when it’s too late to do anything about it.  Bad feelings and thoughts can fester and worsen over time, sometimes it’s better to cut it out and let it heal cleanly.
I’m at work right now, doing my work, and Say by John Mayer comes on my Spotify playlist.  It really made me think about things from a different perspective, made me realize how much I have to be grateful for and how you can miss opportunities to reach out to people.
Don’t hesitate to say something to someone to help bring down the walls that divide you.  Approach it from a place of compassion, not anger.

 


Say – John Mayer

Take all of your wasted honor
Every little past frustration
Take all of your so-called problems,
Better put ’em in quotations
Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say
Walking like a one man army
Fighting with the shadows in your head
Living out the same old moment
Knowing you’d be better off instead,
If you could only
Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say
Have no fear for giving in
Have no fear for giving over
You’d better know that in the end
Its better to say too much
Then never say what you need to say again
Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open
Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say, Say what you need to say
