Today is one of those days where I’m extremely thankful.
I’m thankful for the difficult people that were put into my life, thanks to you, I realised exactly what I don’t want or deserve.
I’m thankful for the hard times, because I realised that I can get through them.
I’m thankful for those who respect me and accept me, exactly how I am.
I’m thankful for my incredible instinct, without you, I’d be lost.
I’m thankful for being blessed with the meaning of the word “understanding”. The more I understand, the less I understand.
I’m thankful for your love, positive vibes and good energy. And I wish each and everyone of you the best in the world.
It’s up to YOU and YOU only to decide what you want and deserve…
Soundgarden – Burden in my Hand
This is what Chris Cornell had to say about the meaning of the song:
“That was a song that really came from the guitar itself. It was mostly like the guitar was dictating what the lyrics should be and creating a mental image. The mental image was this sort of destitute guy. I guess he’d lost his cool if you want to put it that way. He’s sort of coming to grips with what had happened and not necessarily feeling particularly emotional about it either way. He’s trying to figure out how he would stand up and put one foot in front of the other—or not—and the song never really resolves any of that. It’s just that moment of somebody sitting in the dirt. I had more moments like that after that song was written than I ever had before it was, so it means a lot more to me now than it did then.”
