Summer is over?

Really?  Where did it go?  As is typical, I made plans...and by that, I mean tons and tons of plans for this summer.  Beach trips, amusement parks, concerts, bike rides, and more.  I think we accomplished about 10% of what was planned.

Life just gets in the way.  I'm not so sure that's a bad thing.  Would I like to have a summer that I can go where I want, see what I want, do what I want, without worrying about work, money, time.... Of course I would.  But that just isn't practical.  While I love these adventures and I love being busy with fun stuff, I believe that who we are is more formed by our every day life.  We are more influenced by those that we see every day, by what we do day in and day out, by what we experience all the time, yet may appear new, than we are by those times when we are out of our element. 

When we are in a new situation, with new people, it is pretty easy to be good.  To give the best side of yourself for a night or a day, that isn't tough.  The people that we are with every day, are the ones who see who we really are.  They see us without a facade.  They know us for the good and the bad, the days when we are able to show the side that we want the world to see, the side that we want to be the true us, and then there are the days when we are the worst version of ourself, no matter how hard we try.

But once in a while, we do need to indulge.  We need to have those adventures.  We need to experience new things, new people, new places...and of course, new music!

Summer may be over, but that doesn't mean that I am going to stop planning.  I'm not going to stop overplanning, either.  I don't think I would be me, if I did that. 

Yet, in honor of summer, what almost feels like a lost summer, check out this song.  "Last Hurrah" by Scott Porter.  He was a find on Twitter, and I love his music.

I hope you enjoy!
