It’s a new year, which means it’s time to reflect on the past 12 months and hope for the new and exciting things that will transpire over the next 12 months. This Could All Be Yours by Guster provides the perfect soundtrack to your new adventures.
The band opens the song by telling us that “There’s a message in the skies and on the streets / Opportunity, the American-ny dream”. Opportunities are all around us; you can make this year be whatever you want it to be. Set a stretch goal for 2011. Learn a new language, run a marathon, or make peace with a demon from your past. The chances are there, but you have to keep your eyes open for them.
It can be scary to do something new or completely out of character and Guster hits on this fear. “So take a breath and step into the light / Everything will be all right”. Don’t let the fear of change hamper your success in 2011. Make a plan, take a breath, and get out there and do it!
