The Logical Song

I’m not going to lie, I’m obsessed with this song right now.  I completely forgot about it until I saw the commercial for the printer about the girl who grows up and changes and realizes it while watching her daughter.

In particular, these lines resonate with me:

But then they sent me away to teach me how to be sensible    Logical, responsible, practical.

And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable.

Clinical, intellectual, cynical

I feel like what I have gone through the last couple of years can be perfectly summed up in those lines.  I often find myself feeling cynical and jaded in my view of things.

I used to believe that if you followed the right path and you worked your hardest and put your best effort in, that you would make it to where you wanted to be.

The realization that sometimes, your best isn’t good enough to get you where you want to be even if you’ve done everything “right” was one of the most devastating lessons I’ve ever had to learn.
