The human heart was—and remains—a mystery to me. But I’m learning. I have to. —Anthony Bourdain

I think you should listen to Gordi’s Something Like This today

Mondays are always a mix for me. It feels like a slow start, but also a quiet one. Like a foggy sunrise, or staring at a drip filter on my first coffee.

I’m still on my To All the Boys playlist, and the song that’s on loop this morning is Gordi’s Something Like This. It feels like a Monday morning for me, quiet, hopeful, but also a little bit pensive. The lyrics that hit me today are from the first verse:

Take my eyes, but take it slow
And my demise is finding home
And someone’s questions can you know
That people are looking for something
They think they lost long ago

And when the heat blows over from my head now
And I see you’re holding all of me together now
For all those hours I waited for nothing

I wanted something like this

Honestly, I don’t know what this is yet. But that’s not what’s on my mind yet. There’s so many things to do, and my life, a long way to go. I don’t want to hurry anything, and from what I’ve seen, I have a ton of time to do it.

I guess that’s what I’m trying to say today to myself too, to stop being impatient all the time, and wanting things to move faster. That has made me lose before, and it’s not like getting more hurried will help. Maybe it’s the melancholy of a Monday, but I’m hoping to slow things down enough for me to breathe a little easier with everything I’m involved in.

So listen to the song here and start your week a little slower. I know I will.

What is your Monday sounding like?
