This may be seen as a silly post but so many find messages in music about infidelity and rarely about behaving. There is a song by Don Omar called Angelito. It is a rather sad song that tries to deliver a message about the games we play in life, the lies we tell ourselves such as, that it is only one life and we should enjoy it to the detriment of ourselves and others around us. There is a line about getting revenge after deceit and how it makes the woman in the song lost. That's a rough translation. I don't know why I was in the mood to listen to it but in listening I remember the end was my favorite part and I think the message speaks perfectly to waywards trying to find their way through the mess they've created and to anyone really trying to lead an authentic life. It goes as follows:
Vive la vida minuto a minuto
Y encontraras en cada uno de ellos
Un motivo por el cual conducirte
En la forma correcta
Te lo aseguro
Roughly translated it means live your life minute to minute and you will find in each of them a reason to act in the right way. I assure you.
I think it's exactly how I am trying to live my life. Authentic, honest and in the right way. Just wanted to share.
