This time around, the topic for Let’s Blog Off is “The song stuck in your head.” Usually, we think of having a song stuck in our heads as a bad thing. I think it can be a great thing.
After our daughter died, we knew we would view our lives through a new lens. Shortly after the event, I first heard “Take a Back Road” by Rodney Atkins. This song spoke to me at exactly the time I needed to find a new direction.
I realized I had been taking the freeway in my life way too often and needed to slow down and take in the scenery. I also needed to see some new things and meet some new people. I’ve talked about our travels over the past nine or ten months so I won’t rehash them here.
I’ve really taken this song to heart and often have it playing in my head. I find it comforting, so this earworm can stay as long as it wants to.
