Don't Speak Too Soon

Are you a music lover? Are there songs that resonate with your soul?

I'm a music lover myself and it has been my stress reliever and calmer. If I feel weary and exhausted and lonely. I would sit down at the corner, put my headset on, play something soft and relaxing, let the music untangle the weary thoughts, and put the puzzling pieces in my mind into place.

If my mind gets blank and writer's block takes over. I'll just play the music on and let it form thoughts in my mind, then later I would collect them, and put them into words.

There are a lot of songs that could inspire us to write stories or even make reviews where we could tell something about it or share our thoughts and how we define the song. And how we could relate it to our lives. My previous article for instance was inspired by the songs of my favorite Filipino artist Moira de la Torre.

Some music would also let us reflect on ourselves, look back at our past, contemplate on different things, and some would resonate with our souls. Some message is so deep that it diverts us into a dimension where the song wants us to realize something, to decide something, to ponder something, for us to make us do the right move or appreciate what things we have in life, and not to worry about what tomorrow would bring.

Just recently, I was listening to soft acoustic music as usual. I got hooked by this new song on my list. It's entitled "Too Soon" by Kina Grannis. It was my first time to hear this song and listen to the singer's songs. At the end of the song, I stopped doing something when I heard the singer sharing about the song and her life.

I listed it down for you to know the message of the song. But I slightly modified it and made it like in general instead of referring to a certain person. Here it is.

A lot of us go through life wherein everything seems complicated. Sometimes we don't know what we need, what we want, who we are, where we are going, and figuratively feel like we're just floating around. And we could feel the world pushing and pulling us like trying to make us decide things. It's like asking us, "who are you? What do you stand for? What do you want?" But we just don't know. And we badly wanted to know who we are.

The song is about being okay in that space. Recognizing that we are just floating around, confused, and things feel hard, and that's okay. We lost track sometimes but wish to come back someday.

People don't want to look back because they only want to look forward.

When we were young and figuratively didn't know life yet, there was a lot in the past that we wanted to be in the future, and maybe we want to be in our present. Sometimes we are thinking about them. Maybe because we are supposed to look back in the past and bring them forward with us.

People look at crying as a weak part of humans. But it is somewhat important. And to let ourselves cry can be strong. And often necessary, granted that there are people out there who maybe don't need to cry, but that's fine. But for those who do feel so much, just cry.

Sometimes we feel like there's sadness and shadows building in our life, and there is a cloud that is growing and becoming heavy over us. And as soon as our tears fall, it will rain and the cloud is down and everything feels better.

Sometimes we just truly need to get out of our bodies and don't be afraid to cry. Because sometimes, all we need is just to cry and acknowledge what we are feeling and what we are going through, and just cry it out.

-Kina Grannis


This song would truly resonate with your soul if you'll listen to it so dearly, as it does to me. This positively conveys that we should look back at our past and resolve the mess we have made. Because it sometimes caught us up and made us lose track. But not all are capable enough to come back on track. And that might be the reason why others prefer to look forward than look back.

However, there are things in the past that could help us realize something good and make us think that some are worth bringing forward with us. It could be the dreams we made when we were just young. Or knowing how to correct the mistakes we have done before so they won't transpire again in the present or future. And the lessons we got from the experiences we have in the past are worth bringing forward with us as well.

We just have to dwell on them positively.

And as the singer says above, there's nothing wrong with crying. Because sometimes, what we only need is to shed tears and let them wash and clean our unclear minds and weary souls. We don't need to prevent our tears from bursting out because it would only make us feel heavier. Just like a heavy and dark cloud, it would release the rain freely once it can not bear the weight anymore.

Additionally, as you listen to the song, you'll learn that it also conveys the emotion of someone who truly wanted to grow freely without any expectations.

We are living in this world full of expectations. People around us always expect something good or high from us. And that sometimes hinders our growth as we are hesitant to step out of our shells to explore new things. And in some cases, those expectations make them lose track and don't know how to get back up. So they ended up getting stuck in the vein, or worse, end their journey by themselves.

Sometimes, we better be off alone so we could figure out things by ourselves. No expectations, no pressure, no burdens, no barriers. Just ourselves alone.

Don't speak too soon. If you know someone feeling heavy and needs to cry. Don't stop him. Just let him cry. Don't wipe his tears too soon. Because we don't know if his tears are sad or happy. And maybe that's what he truly needs to feel better later. Let his tears wash and clean his unclear mind and weary soul.

Because after that, everything will be better and lighter.

What song resonates with your soul?

She's so pretty! I like her singing and speaking voice. So easy to listen to. Her singing voice has that Carrie Underwood tone to it. I love her message and I connect with that and I feel like that still all the time. I am still floating and that's okay :D I have come to accept that and learned to tune out the negativity around. I am also with her when she said some things in our past are not just there but we have to bring them forward for it is what's best for us. We go through life to experience things and take the good and the bad into consideration and find out what you want and who you truly want to be.

Music lovers who have a different kind of love in them have a lot of qualities. A music lover can be a lyricist, he can be a composer, he can take his efforts far and I think the story you have shared here is beautiful.

What a beautiful story of the song, and you are very right in what you say, if we must cry, we do it without thinking a lot, without thinking about what others will say, emotions cannot be repressed. Btw, I also love music.

I like to listen to music when I'm not in a good mood. Also to clear a bit. Before if I went out to the street with headphones, but now since I almost always go with the child, I do not listen to music while I travel.

First, ang ganda mo, Ateeee! Hiyang na hiyang ang HK ih. 😍 Music lover din ako pero mostly is foreign songs talaga like K-Pop, Western, ganiyan. Actually, wala akong Tagalog songs sa music list ko. But may mga Pinoy music din, lahat is calm lang.

Na-bet ko 'yung kanta na Too Soon, Ate ah. Pinlay ko kaagad tapos download ko later. Actually, karamihan sa recent songs ko ngayon is recommended ni CrazyRichFilipina eh. Ang ka-calm kasi ay, as in. Pasok na pasok sa preferences ko. Upon the lines, ito talaga tumatak sa akin eh. "Sometimes we don't know .......... where we are going." Dami kong plan, alam mo 'yan, Ate pero clueless pa din ako kung anong endgame n'yang mga plans ko eh. As in, daming what ifs pero sige. Push pa din natin! 🧡💪🏻

I love music , the love I have for it is exceptional , whenever I'm sad or when everything turns dark blue, I could only help myself by listening to music because it gives life to my soul and it reawakened my weakest part.... I love listening to music every moment in regardless of what I'm passing through.

Some times , life will show you the bitter parts of itself, it will trow you bricks, it will hit you hard till you stumble and you'll feel like the world is coming to end.

Not at all, it's that not the end end of it all, when you feel like crying along the process, it fine, you'll be reenergized to continue from where you stopping. Crying doesn't shows that you're weak , but it shows how strong you can be to move on.
