This is Your Life...

Switchfoot sings a song titled "This is Your Life". I love that song. And I loved it even more when they played it when I saw them in concert a couple weeks back.

As often as I've heard this song on the radio and on commercials, it wasn't until I heard it performed live that the lyrics really stood out to me. This is part of the chorus:

"this is your life, are you who you want to be
this is your life, are you who you want to be
this is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be"

"This is your life, ARE YOU WHO YOU WANT TO BE????"
All my life growing up, all I wanted to do was be a wife and a stay at home mom. So yes, I am who I want to be in that sense. But there are things about me - personality wise, emotionally, physically, and even sometimes spiritually I wish were different about me.

How about you...."This is your life, IS IT EVERYTHING YOU DREAMED IT WOULD BE?"

DITTO DITTO DITTO to everything you said. I have the titles I want: wife and mom, but there are many other things I wish were different, mainly physical right now.
