Younger Now is this week’s Song Of The Week. I have to admit that it even came as an immense shock to me that I like a Miley Cyrus song. But I have to admit that she’s pretty cool. Some of her songs I thought were okay… Wrecking Ball, We Can’t Stop, Party in the USA, and a song from the movie she made with her (YUMMY!) ex-husband. She didn’t interest me, so I never really bothered to listen to what she had to say. Not until I stumbled upon one of her songs that really captured my attention. That song is next week’s Song Of The Week.
After listening to Slide Away, which is an amazing and mature song, Younger Now appeared in my recommendations.
Even though Younger Now is over three years old, it still struck a chord. I think it has more to do with the fact that I can relate to what she is saying and experiencing.
Feels like I just woke up, like all this time I’ve been asleep. Even though it’s not who I am, I’m not afraid of who I used to be. No one stays the same. And you know what goes up must come down. Change is a thing you can count on. I feel so much younger now.Younger Now – Miley Cyrus
The song speaks to me because I too am waking up. This has been going on for more than a year now. Okay, this process started a long time ago, but I really am discovering who I am now. More than ever, I know who I am, what I want and don’t want, what I will accept or not.
It is clear she spent a lot of time with herself to get to know who she is. I appreciate and love this because I know there are still people who can’t stomach their own company. There still are people who don’t know who they are and what they stand for.
Miley was 23 or 24 when she wrote this song. To me, it shows her maturity and that she thinks of who she is and who she wants to be as a person. Not because people demand it, but more because she knows it will benefit her and through that, those around her.
Enjoy this song, because this song has been on repeat for a while now.
