Letters to July: Dear Billy

July 3, 2015

I woke up at the wee hours feeling much calmer than I’ve been these past two weeks. Admitting that you might be doing things wrong and spending more time to breathe and leave everything in God’s hands could really do magic to your wellbeing.

I opened my chat apps and among the hundreds notification I found a simple line: “check this out, the song suits you.”

And it is.

After a few loops and long minutes of smile, I thought, this is actually a perfect way to start a day —with a good song (and it’s Billy Joel!) plus a thoughtful greeting from a friend. Little things like this make the world goes round.

Slow down, you crazy child. You’re so ambitious for a juvenile. But then if you’re so smart, tell me why are you still so afraid? Where’s the fire? What’s the hurry about? You better cool it off before you burn it out. You got so much to do and only so many hours in a day.

Don’t you know that when the truth is told, that you can get what you want or you can just get old. 

You’re gonna kick off before you even get halfway through. When will you realize Vienna waits for you?

I guess I’m getting ready for what the future has in store for me.

Good night. Be kind.
