Anyone who knows me, knows that when it comes to music I got the major short end of the stick.  Back in grade school, they wouldn’t even let me try to play an instrument.  You could describe me as the “musical spaz” and I would not be offended!

So why am I quoting “Five for Fighting” today?  Because their song “Chances” provides some absolutely wonderful insights.  There are four lines in the song that are incredibly insightful:

  • Chances are when said and done who’ll be the lucky ones who make it all the way?
  • Afraid to love beyond what I can lose when it comes to you
  • Until you crash what have you done? Is there a better bet than love?
  • Chances are only what we make them and all I need

While we normally associate love songs with two people, I think these guys provide food for thought for something more.  They speak to the dreams that each of us have inside of us.  The dreams that we are too afraid to pursue for fear of falling.  Why?

With that in mind:

When was the last time you took a chance?

As always, thanks for the time.
