The Sweet Life, Patterns, & Leon Bridges

Sometimes music sounds different when the conditions are right. The perfect amount of bass, timing, and ambient sound can make the hair on your neck stand up. I’m a sucker for Leon Bridges and last night “Sweeter” came on featuring Leon and Terrace Martin

The chorus begs:

Hoping for a life more sweeter

Instead I’m just a story repeating

I can’t think of a person I know who on some level is longing for a life a bit “more sweeter.” While the patterns may not all be of a pathological level, nearly all of us are repeating some pattern of behavior that isn’t effective. By some standards, understanding and ultimately overcoming this pattern is our current highest responsibility.

My hunch is that, like me, you also have a “story repeating” and, furthermore, if you know it and can do something about it life would be “more sweeter” for you, too. 

Thanks, Leon.
