Tonight, I randomly got here throughout a track which I used to like ten years in the past and it spurred me to attempt to recall and discover a number of the gems of the yesteryear. It was actually arduous to recollect a lot of them, the recollections are too hazy. Generally, I bear in mind the album cowl, a selected scene within the MV, a line within the lyrics or a snippet of the melody. There’s a little bit of lingering remorse after I notice I would by no means be capable of discover them once more. Some I managed to recall, which carry a way of triumph and aid. And a pair extra which I rediscovered by digging by the weblog, which additionally carry again one other wave of recollections.
It’s fascinating how songs that I used to pay attention on repeat every day merely fade out of my life in the future with out me realizing it. It’s like how individuals in our lives come and go. After all, there are particular songs that I’ve been listening to nearly every day since I used to be 13, however the majority are like a part, irrespective of how a lot I’ll love them at a sure time limit.
Rediscovering them years later once more makes me mirror on the years in between. The years which really feel like a passing blur. It’s a wierd feeling, like you might be in such a special place out of your previous self, and also you marvel/lament the adjustments, though some issues by no means change.
Loads of the Korean songs that I used to take heed to are very strongly tied to recollections of studying the language and the years of discovering myself and rising. Pondering again, it has been an incredible journey as a substitute, however not with out its ups and downs. However I wouldn’t have it another method.
As I’m typing this, I’m listening to the songs once more. They remind me numerous how a lot I like Korean and I’m grateful how this reminder involves me at this level 🙂 Generally we do want reminders about 초심 / 初心 and I’m very glad for the reminder tonight.
I hope that studying this publish would possibly encourage you to additionally seek for the songs that, for a time period, meant loads to you. Maybe, it’s a chance to mirror, to recalibrate and hopefully to get some optimistic vitality 🙂
Until the subsequent publish!
