I’ll find that the more I think about what could be, what might happen, the more I retreat to bad habits, insecurities and sleeping pills. There is no need for this. Looking ahead is the only direction that truly matters.

Perspective is inevitable. You don’t have to try to learn from it — your instincts will tell you where not to go again. The same gut feeling will tell your head to make your jaws pry open your mouth and spit, scream or say the words that make change happen.

*Note the sad song/muppets contrast. Pretty cool, guys.


“Yesterday when you were young
Everything you needed done was done for you
Now you do it on your own
But you find you’re all alone, what can you do?

You and me walk on, walk on, walk on
‘Cause you can’t go back now

You know there will be days
When you’re so tired
That you can’t take another step
The night will have no stars
And you’ll think you’ve gone as far
As you will ever get

You and me walk on, walk on, walk on
‘Cause you can’t go back now

And yeah, yeah, you go where you want to go
Yeah, yeah, be what you want to be
If you ever turn around, you’ll see me

I can’t really say
Why everybody wishes they were somewhere else
But in the end, the only steps that matter
Are the ones you take all by yourself

You and me walk on, walk on, walk on
Yeah, you and me walk on, walk on, walk on
‘Cause you can’t go back now
Walk on, walk on, walk on
You can’t go back now”
