[That Tune on a Monday] The Climb

I am somewhat a bit not myself lately for reasons that I don’t want to delve on. No, I don’t want to delve on it but I have a feeling it’s just that time of the year; that time when you get to thinking while downing a bottle of beer: “what the hell am I doing with my life?” which seriously, I do not have an answer. True I am trying my hardest to earn a living but I do not have a savings account and there is plenty of other stuff running in my head but I don’t want to breakdown and I am not interested in a pity party. During these times, my only friend is my music player, works like magic too. As I set it on shuffle like I always do when I’m in a slump, The Climb by Miley Cyrus played and I had to stop for a bit. Ah, yes, this song, why didn’t I think of listening to this song right away anyways, I must really be not in my right mind.

The Climb is one of my “pick me up” songs and no it’s not because I am a Hannah Montana or a Miley Cyrus fan; it is something that has to do with the lyrics and melody, which is very positive and true. Let’s take the Chorus for example:

There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose

Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb.

The way I look at these lines is life would always throw something challenging at you, either good or bad but either way you’ll have to face it to grow into a better you and that growth is all that matters. Isn’t that inspiring? It is to me. And until I feel better, until I feel like myself again, I’m gonna keep this on repeat.
