Second Last Chance – The Overtones

Link to song

This song is so carefree and comforting that I can’t help but like it. The style of music feels so cheesy and upbeat that it is an instant spirit lifter for me. Sometimes it feels like there is so much pretty to get everything right and to keep up in this ever-changing modern world. I like being reminded that it is okay to get things wrong sometimes, it is fine to keep on learning even as an adult and most importantly, that a lot of the time, the main pressures are only the ones I am putting on myself.

Recently, I have found that it is important to make your own luck occasionally. Not everything can go right the first time and if you don’t try again, then you can never succeed. It is scary, and it can put you in a vulnerable position but when it works out and you know that it was your perseverance that got you there, it feels even better! The song’s lyrics are right: you do owe it to yourself. You are the most important person in your life, and when there is something that you want, you owe it to yourself to put yourself first and try to get it and make yourself happy.

It’s not always easy, but it is worth a shot. Adult life is stressful at the best of times, let alone when you won’t allow yourself to make mistakes or do what makes you happiest. It takes a while to learn to do it, but you’ll get there. We all have so many more talents and qualities than we let ourselves see, but it doesn’t have to stay that way. Start small, and build yourself up. Give yourself that second last chance, and see where it takes you.
