Begin again

 
Took a deep breath in the mirror
He didn’t like it when I wore high heels, but I do
Turned the lock and put my headphones on
He always said he didn’t get this song but I do, I do

Walked in expecting you’d be late
But you got here early
And you stand and wait
And I walk to you
You pulled my chair out and helped me
And you don’t know how nice that is
But I do

And you throw your head back laughing like a little kid
I think it’s strange that you think I’m funny ‘cause he never did
I’ve been spending the last 8 months thinking all love ever does
Is break and burn and end
But on a Wednesday in a cafe I watched it begin again

You said you never met one girl
Who has as many James Taylor records as you
But I do
We tell stories and you don’t know why I’m coming off a little shy
But I do

But you throw your head back laughing like a little kid
I think it’s strange that you think I’m funny ‘cause he never did
I’ve been spending the last 8 months thinking all love ever does
Is break and burn and end
But on a Wednesday in a cafe I watched it begin again

And we walk down the block to my car
And I almost brought him up
But you start to talk about the movies
That your family watches every single Christmas
And I won’t talk about that
For the first time, what’s past is past

‘Cause you throw your head back laughing like a little kid
I think it’s strange that you think I’m funny ‘cause he never did
I’ve been spending the last 8 months thinking all love ever does
Is break and burn and end
Then on a Wednesday in a cafe I watched it begin again
Then on a Wednesday in a cafe I watched it begin again

lucha con una sonrisa en el rostro

En ocasiones uno aprende más en un día que en todo un mes. Y no hablo de matemáticas, de gramática, de cualquier idioma o de física cuántica.
No.
Hablo de conocimientos reales, de la vida, de esas experiencias vitales que te cambian, que te hacen entender y madurar. Y comprendes todo. Y comprendes a mucha, muchísima gente y admiras su esfuerzo, su trabajo y sus ganas de seguir adelante. Pase lo que pase, siempre lucha, nunca te rindas. La vida no está hecha para sentarse a lamentarse y verla pasar.
Cada vez que te pase algo malo aprende de ello y piensa que hay cosas muchísimo peores. Cada vez que veas, por ejemplo, un chico en silla de ruedas no sientas lástima, siente admiración porque él lucha cada día por tener una vida digna y plena pese a que tiene más obstáculos  que tú y yo, y probablemente se quejará menos.
Y recuerda, sonreir es la mejor cura.
