“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.
