The song that changed the day, or maybe just my outlook for five minutes.

If you have kids I’m sure you can relate.

Ours are 12 and 14. It seems these are the ages they are kinda short-circuiting as they struggle to figure out who they are. Sometimes that means they are not nice to me. That is hard to deal with some days.

I have not heard this song in a long, long time but it somehow popped into the rotation on Pandora today. No idea how but it was like the universe somehow knew I needed to hear it.

There are a few lines that just hit home. It helped me think back to growing up, and it just sucked on so many levels. Maybe this song can help me be a tiny little bit more empathetic today. Maybe I can be a tiny bit more patient.

  • Every know knows it hurts to grow up.
  • And you’re so much like me. I’m sorry.
  • Every know knows it sucks to grow up. And everybody does.
