I’ll be your friend I’ll be your lover.
I’ll be anything just to have a piece of you.
I’ll be your 2 AM call when you’re leaving the bar
I’ll be your shotgun seat to the trip upstate
I’ll be anything just to spend some time with you.
I’ll be your sunset to the perfect day together
I’ll be your rocking chair partner
while we watch the grandkids play.
I’ll be anything just to be your everything.
I didn’t expect to be so good at loving you
And sure as hell know you didn’t expect this either.
But don’t fight this love
just because you haven’t seen it before.
No one could have guessed
what would become of me and you.
But you’re the best thing to ever come into my life
So let me show you how amazing life can be with me.
The holidays are bright and loud with music and family. For many people, it’s their favorite time of year. In all the celebration we tend to forget those among us who struggle with the holiday season.
The holidays are all about being surrounded by friends, family, and loved ones. Unfortunately this can sometimes backfire into making us feel lonely instead of part of a larger community. For starters, you may have a small family or have special family members missing this year in the holiday festivities. These parties and gatherings put an emphasis on that emptiness. On the other hand, you may have a large family and are far from alone during this time of year. But you may feel disconnected and that amplifies the feeling of loneliness. You’ll be hard on yourself for feeling lonely when you’re not alone.
Focus on those you do feel connected to in your life. Whether its friends instead of blood relatives or a community on the internet that you truly feel a part of, make sure to spend quality time connecting with these important relationships in your life.
During the holiday season, the emphasis on family also puts pressure on you starting your own family which begins by finding a partner. Relatives routinely ask you when you’re going to settle down and find someone nice to bring home and meet the family. You see lots of pictures on social media for friends and family with their significant other and it can make you feel inadequate for not having a partner as well.
Feel free to handle your nosy relatives however you see fit. Just know that there is no need to rush into a relationship that you don’t want or aren’t ready for. That could lead to ending up with someone that isn’t really right for you and wasting time not being truly happy. A partner may not be a part of the future you envision for yourself and that should be respected as well.
The holidays are also at the end of the year when most people reflect on the highs and lows of that year. The New Year is also right around the corner and many people set goals and expectations for themselves to achieve. Every part of life can’t be planned and unfortunately most people find themselves behind on their goals. They’re not where they want to be in life and they’re upset that another year has passed without much improvement.
Goals sometimes have to be adjusted so that they can be realistic and reachable. Some people see this a negative thing but setting a small, reachable goal can produce big results. You’ll feel accomplished for reaching this smaller goal and motivated to continue on instead of defeated by missing your original goal. Life may alter your goals completely and that can be devastating. But this new life path can lead to new goals and new victories.
You know it hurts me not to have your past
But the trail of your fingertips along my back
Remind me that I have your here and now.
You always know how to make it better
Because you remind me that most importantly of all
I have your future all to myself.
I don’t mean to rush us along
Or come on too strong
But I can’t stop myself
from making future plans with you.
Our love is in full bloom
I can’t help picturing you as my groom.
It’s just the forever looks so good
Standing next to you.
