Music – 1987

Why You Treat Me So Bad – Club Nouveau

I went out with some friends last night and the DJ played this song.  I was amazed that I remembered the lyrics as I haven’t heard this song in over 20 years! Hearing it brought back so many memories.

 

The year was 1987.

I was 15 and a sophomore in high school.

Such a different world all those years ago. I very much lived in the moment.  I didn’t think too much into my future because I wanted to do so much that I decided to just allow life to move me in whatever direction it felt.  At 15, I experienced much heartbreak and pain, and I wasn’t fully aware of how it would impact me and mold me into the woman I am today. I wasn’t aware of my inner strength, and if I could go back, I wouldn’t change a thing.

At 15, I wanted to be a songwriter, a singer, a performer, a comedian, a dancer, a choreographer (Ohhh, I had moves back in the day!), a pilot, a poet, a wanderer.  I had big dreams.

I accomplished 4 of those.  😉

Life is beautifully strange.
