“I’ll be waiting / Anticipating / All that I aim for / What I was made for
With every heartbeat / All of my blood bleeds / Running inside me
I’m looking for you / I am restless / I am restless / I am breathless / Looking for you”

Once in a while, everybody experiences restlessness brought about by a myriad of events. I am in that state right now (have been for a long time, actually) and I am still striving to arrive at the time when balance and peace of mind are achieved. I still have a long way to go, but I am working on it.
Perfectly capturing my current situation is a beautiful song by Switchfoot called “Restless.” I have read somewhere that it is about the wait to be one with God (which makes sense considering Switchfoot is a Christian Rock band [a label that they’ve refused to accept, but we all know is true!]) However, as any other song, this one is open to any interpretation, whether you may be Christian or not. It could be about God, searching for “the one,” trying to hopelessly pursue a dream, or just finding that missing piece of yourself.
So for all of those who are in the same boat as I am, here’s a song to which you may relate. Hoping we may find that elusive peace of mind real soon.
P.S. Another song that fits my current situation is this. Check it out.
