I don't know why, but lately, I just can't get this Taylor Swift song out of my head. I thought maybe if I wrote a blog post about it, it'd stop haunting me.
The thing is, I've never been in the "if only I could go back and do things different" crowd. I'm happy to be just exactly where I am and the thought of going back even one day, whether to do things differently or not, just seems like masochism. :-D
But when I was listening to this song the other day, I had a real pang of "if only I could go back and do things different." I had to quickly slap some sense back into myself, but it was just proof to me of how much this song has affected me. (or is it effected? Where's Annette Lyon when you need her???)
So I found the video on YouTube and cried through the whole thing because the video was even more powerful than the song alone. So I thought if I had to cry like a baby, the rest of you would have to, as well. :o)
I hope you enjoy / get something out of / appreciate the message of this song.
