wake me up.

I have heard this song a million times. I dance a little – the kids sing. no biggie…

And today I had a few beautiful conversations with people in my community.  I spoke about my “old” life and teaching in DCPS and how hard I was working to change the world and how I thought I knew everything about social justice and poverty and education. And all of that “knowing” was a lot of stress on me, on my body, on my mind.  It was a rigorous and exhausting time in my life. And when I broke free, a part of me passed away.

so, when I heard this today- it was a release- a letting go… reflecting on our stories and our past  is an essential part of transformation.

“I tried carrying the weight of the world,  But I only have two hands.”

Wake Up.

Feeling my way through the darkness
Guided by a beating heart
I can’t tell where the journey will end
But I know where to start
They tell me I’m too young to understand
They say I’m caught up in a dream
Well life will pass me by if I don’t open up my eyes
Well that’s fine by me

So wake me up when it’s all over
When I’m wiser and I’m older
All this time I was finding myself, and I
Didn’t know I was lost

I tried carrying the weight of the world

But I only have two hands
Hope I get the chance to travel the world
But I don’t have any plans
Wish that I could stay forever this young
Not afraid to close my eyes
Life’s a game made for everyone
And love is a prize
Aviici song
