I was coming out of the holiday yesterday when it hit me. 2017 has been a year. Sometimes all in one day, furious, depressed, hopeless, and the list goes on.
The plans for 2018 have been banked, so on a personal level I don’t really have any complaints. I didn’t even realize anything was off. The other day I posted a Luther song on one of my accounts, and the homie Ben posed the question, ‘What’s your favorite Luther song?’ Today’s song is the answer.
I realized I hadn’t listened to it in a little while. I ended up going down a ‘My Favorite Love Songs’ rabbit hole. My chest opened up. I felt really, really alive for the first time in, man, I can’t remember.
That’s when I realized this has been the first year of my life where the romantic part of my personality was all but gone. My lust/libido is as strong as its ever been (thanks Instagram), but just too many other things occupying that time and space I used to make for love. It is what it is.
So one thing I’m already promising myself for 2018 is not losing track of one of the best parts of my personality. Onward.
