Sometimes you hit a wall, or should I say a wall hits you. Knocks the wind out of you, and makes you stumble backwards.
Its not until the shock of it all settles in and you start to evaluate why you hit that wall. How did you not see it coming… were you just not looking? Did you take a wrong step that lead you to walk into that wall? Or did the wall pop out of no where and you had no choice but to run into it?
These are all the things you start to ponder.
Then you start to realize the reasons matter none. You feel as though you learned the lesson. Open your eyes.
This is one of those songs that reminds me of being 7 years old riding in the car, listening to my mom sing this song and knowing what she meant when she sang it. Being an adult I can relate even more as a woman. As a kid I just felt so terrible for what my mom was going through as my mom.
