TLDR: Are you having a great time? Are you making sure you're not keeping anyone else from having a great time? Is there balance? Perfect.
This off day is one of those self reflection type joints. For the past month I've been really diving into fully understanding who I am, what I need & how I'm supposed to truly operate with & around others in the healthiest way.
To tackle the former, I've begun to allow my lyrics to touch on a wider range of feelings about myself. Ie. Am I being honest about the way I feel about people & situations? Have I allowed myself to breathe today? Am I holding myself accountable for my words & actions? Am I using my time wisely? Have I unnecessarily personalized any situations that I need to release?
Which brings me to the latter point! I've had to ask myself; How healthy are my interactions with others?, Am I being honest? Does my honesty hurt or hinder them? Cuz truth be told there are deadass times when one might feel like it's cool to 'live your best life, regardless of how others may feel' Thing is, as social beings, we thrive best when not only WE feel & are living our best but we are also responsible enough to understand that others should have that same luxury!
Lastly, while sitting here kinda achy, I'm chuckling at these lyrics. 'I care more about my mind, than about my body... Care more about my soul than about my feet. I need to release!' They're inspired by my Sunday night dance session in which I was allowed to let go of my physical worries for a bit & just glide! 2 days later & my body & feet are both reminding me that they are JUST as important as my mind & soul, ya know? So, I guess my last lesson is balance (yet again)
