So the reason why I chose to write my reflection on this question is that fact that I love music and I feel that this particular song fits with me well. The song that I feel that can identify me as of right now is I Lived by One Republic. The reason behind this is the fact that the song is stating that he has lived his life to the fullest and has done everything he has wanted to do to a certain extent and that is how I feel at this point in my life. I have done everything I can do up to this point in my life whether it was with friends or family. My life at this point in time I can say is pretty good, it’s not the best but I appreciate what I have and what I am dealt with because there are people out there that have nothing and it is sad and I am grateful for what I have because my mom works so hard to provide for me and my brothers. I feel like she cannot completely fit with this song like I can because she has had to sacrifice a lot to deal with me and my brothers. The song opens up with a dialogue of a boy with cystic fibrosis and he explains how hard it is to live with that disease but how he is able to do what he wants and how he is living his life to the fullest.
I feel like ever since I was a little boy I have done almost everything that most people can say they haven’t done. I’ve gone to Cancun plenty of times, I feel like I have been to Las Vegas more than an average adult has gone in their lifetime, also having a house out in Texas has given me the opportunity to go out there many times with all of my family every summer for a whole month sometimes even longer. These vacations make me feel close to my family because whenever we go on these trips we just bond and have fun with no worries we get away from the real world for a while. I like to take advantage of the opportunities that I am given because I feel that is what we need as a family to keep us together.
I am blessed to have been able to live my life the way I have up to this point in my life because I have experienced so many amazing things and have had so much fun doing all that with friends and family and it is just an absolute blessing. Not many people have the opportunity to do what I have done up to this point in my life and for that I am grateful. This is the reason why I chose this song to identify with, I lived by One Republic is a song that can identify with others but with me I feel like the song explains my life.
