Jump Into The Past….With Style

Have you ever wondered why we like the things we actually like!? I know, what kind of a weird question is that!? What are you even talking about exactly you might be asking!? Think about it about for a moment, take clothes for a example, we all have our own type of style, some of us like a more modern look, while others prefer a more vintage timeless look, such as myself more on the vintage side however!! Where does that come from!? I mean sure you might say it’s just we’re drawn to, it just catches out, that’s true…..but what causes us to be drawn to them in the first place!?

It’s not like we know what are style is going to be automatically, we get our inspiration from somewhere once we’re old enough to know what we like, with me I like more of a vintage look when it comes to my style in what I wear, I like feeling comfortable, but I also like clothes that give me that Flowy-ness that I need and love, to describe it better, my style is more 70’s inspired, I like to think of it as hippy/bohemian chic in a way with a hint of country style added!!

Now I don’t know why exactly I prefer it, it’s just something I’ve always been drawn to, something I’ve always felt fitted me in a sense, now what does this have to do with the title, we’ll I always find myself wondering why it is we’re drawn to the things we’re pulled towards naturally and I like to think that it has something to do with who we were or might’ve been before this lifetime that we’re in now…..crazy thought I know, this isn’t the first time I have thought of something like this and believe me it won’t be the last haha!!

It’s just interesting that’s all, when it comes to our sense of style, the way we carry ourselves and even the music we listen to they all come from somewhere and they all give us different feelings, why we feel them and where they come from exactly, it can get you thinking, okay maybe not everyone…..but if you’re the type to think about random stuff like I do then maybe this applies to you, maybe it doesn’t!! I just feel a lot of what we are has to come from somewhere beyond ourselves, small or not…..

The way I am and how I have carried myself so far, the way I feel, is what I feel is 70’s…I am a natural wanderer, I like indie style music (I love music in general, but indie style music is one of my favorites) I daydream 95 percent of the time if not mostly (hence the inspiration for this blog) and I like being in nature and enjoying scenery!! Now that may not actually mean anything involving 70’s I know, but I always felt 70’s vibe from myself it’s just something I gravitate towards without even realizing it, I am obsessed let’s face it…..now that said,

I have embraced more things out of that realm, staying on attire for a moment…..I have some clothes that don’t really say 70’s, I have this one shirt that I bought 2 years ago or something, it’s an all black lace shirt, it’s got long sleeves to it and the neck part is similar to a turtle neck, but isn’t, I didn’t know how else to explain it, don’t worry I looked it up, apparently It’s called a ruffled mock neck…..what I was getting at is, that was out of my comfort zone, lace is something I never really wear often and for me to see that and say “Hey I like this” knowing myself that it was something I didn’t think I would ever be drawn to, but it was, it was the style of it I liked and why I guess I decided to buy it, it was different than my usual everyday kind of style….

I’m sure this post doesn’t even seem like it goes with what I was originally talking about, but I will do my best to get back on track here…..sheesh who knew I’d talk this much about style…..this is new even for me lol!! My point is everything that we are and have yet to become…..was and will be inspired by something, everything that I am at this point in time and who I’ve felt for a very long time I was transforming into, stems from a 70’s point in time if that makes sense, hopefully it does, but if it doesn’t that’s okay…..even though I was born in 90’s, I feel 70’s in a sense of character and my ways of being, I don’t know about everything else in the 70’s, but as far as clothing as we talked about for like a half hour or so….it’s the kind of thing I like!!

On the other hand….I have also discovered some of my style may also come from a point in time between the 30s, 50s, and slight 60s…..if we’re going more modern like…..I am between 80s casual and 90s which works because 90’s was the era I was born in….this is the first time I ever wrote a whole post about style….I’m a little confused to why that happened, but hey hopefully it made for a good post!!

What’s your soul era and what era do you think your style fits in!?

Now Playing PVRIS, Song Of The Day: Same Soul

Okay so, i’m not quite sure how long this post is gonna be, i’m hoping it’s not too long though, but we’ll see. I wasn’t quite sure what to write about today, I kinda sat looking at my computer and all around my room, trying to think and so I just went with whatever was in my head the most which so happened to be a song by one of my favorite bands, that I constantly mention I know, but for some reason I woke up with the song in my head so I thought let’s talk about the song and you know see what it’s about, shall we!?

So as you can see from the title the song that we will be touching upon today is called same soul and it’s by PVRIS (the band that never seems to leave my mouth, not that I mind, I don’t know if you guys do though…..hope not) anyway same soul I feel is a pretty self explanatory kind of song, however I also know that some people might have a different perspective as well as a different interpretation of the song which is cool because all songs with meaning always tend to leave you wondering what the song is about, especially when you have songs that are hard to get right away.

Here are the lyrics of the song Same Soul from the first verse to the chorus:

 [Verse 1]
Where does your body go when I leave you alone?
Would your heart know if I met you in a brand new set of bones?

‘Cause you may see me in different bodies
Hiding below with the same soul

[Pre-Chorus]
I could have walked by you a thousand times
Different places, different lives
I could have been someone you don’t recognize
Different figure, new design

[Chorus]
I’m just a body that you used to know
I’m just somebody that you used to know
I’m just a body that you used to know
Used to know, used to know, used to know

So as you can see, pretty self explanatory right!? Lynn Gunn the front singer of PVRIS talks about possibly meeting someone more than once to what we know, if that makes sense, just to explain it a bit more, in this she talks past lives pretty much. Now some may say that past lives isn’t really a thing, while others would most likely, maybe disagree, if you’re asking me whether I believe in the whole past lives topic, I would say that I wouldn’t completely rule it out. I mean don’t you guys ever wonder why sometimes we connect to people right away and why it is that some people we encounter can seem familiar to us!? It’s that feeling where you bump into someone and you just have this strange connection to right away, but you know even know each others names yet!?

In this song, I feel it relates to past lives, even Lynn herself talked upon past lives in a podcast. Having that thought and feeling as though you could have possibly met someone before, it really gets you thinking………a lot of us don’t really think on whether or not we had multiple lives before hand, apart from the one we are living now, I think that some of us or maybe even all of us had, however some of us can recall it very vividly then most of us, which is pretty interesting if you think about it.

Here’s the second verse and the pre chorus:

[Verse 2]
Where did your heart stay in all those years away?
Did I make your body shake?
Could you feel me riding through the airwaves?
In all those yesterdays were you always hiding below?
No, I didn’t know

[Pre-Chorus]
I think we’ve loved a thousand lives
I try to find you every time
Searching for those same wide eyes
That locked me in, in my first life
Do you remember my old names?
Recognize my other face?

This song definitely hints at being about past lives here, especially when she sings the lines of the pre-chorus, talking about loving the same person more than once and trying to recognize that person as they are now (I think we loved a thousand lives, I try to find you every time) she even sings the lines: Do you remember my old names!? Recognize my other face!? which to me SCREAMS THIS SONG IS ABOUT PAST LIVES…..ehm…sorry about that.

Now after looking at the lyrics again, I came to the thought, that maybe it’s not about past lives entirely, some parts could also be seen as maybe knowing someone from childhood, but then either you move away or they move away as kids and then one day you end up bumping into them again, but you don’t really quite recognize them at first, but once you really start to get to know them, that’s when it all comes back to you, you know them and are familiar with them because you use to be friends before.

You both see now though how much you as people, have changed since that time, so it’s kinda like you’re having a conversation with them, asking them whether they still remember that version of you, before you both grew up to be the new versions of who you are now, if that makes any sense at all, I really hope that did, I was trying so hard to word all that right as best as I could. Like I said earlier this song could be interpreted in a lot of different ways, but I feel this song is leading a whole lot toward it being about past lives, but that’s just my interpretation on it. I have no idea why I woke up to that song in my head, but hey it gave me the idea to write a blog post on this soooo, i’m happy.

Now I don’t know about you guys, but I actually felt this post to be a whole lot challenging to write about then my other posts. I didn’t think i’d ever come across the thought to write upon topics like this, although I always sometimes think about this topic and other topics of course, this is the first one to where I felt I wanted to put my thought on, but although it was challenging, I actually enjoyed writing about it because these are the kind of things that can get you really thinking, which is good if it’s stuff like this.

What was your most challenging blog post to write about, if you too had an experience like that and what’s your interpretation on the song that I just covered!? Do you believe in past lives, do you think that the only life we have is the one we’re living!? Feel free to share your thoughts if you like, I hope you all have a goodnight/morning and or evening.

If you guys are interested in hearing the song so that you can get a better interpretation on it or you just want to listen to it, you can listen to it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmweQs1-XH8
