What Happened to The Dixie Chicks?

9:48:00 AM

Have you ever wonder what happened to the Dixie Chicks? On my way home I put in an old CD and sure enough it was the Dixie Chicks album. I obviously jammed out country style but then I got to thinking, what happened to them? Not specifically the women in the group, but the name, the idea, the days way back when. We all live each and every day with something that we hold near and dear to us but then, just like that, it is gone. I mean, the song "goodbye earl" really meant goodbye…I guess I was hoping it was permanent (not the abusive Earl though).

Who doesn't know what I'm talking about? Who's never left home, and who's never struck out? I feel that as time passes we let go of what we used to be. Sure, we are still the same people, but when you look back we have all changed, all grown, all developed into the people we want (or didn't want) to be; so where does the old "us" go? The Dixie Chicks clearly got some cowboys to take them away but I don't think it is that simple.

A huge part of life is trying new things and stepping out of your comfort zone; that's what I did with this blog. I figured this blog could be a hit or miss but so far it's staying afloat. I was skeptical of course; people criticize, people judge, but in the end that doesn't matter. I have learned that I care too much about what others think; I always wanted to impress people, show them I can be good at something, but for what? When it all comes down to it we are all afraid of changing and those wide open spaces that the Chicks sang so twangy about. Let's forget about others and live for ourselves. Do what you love and love what you have become…life is way to short to try and impress others, the only thing that matters is that you are happy with yourself.

As time passes, we let go of our old selves and become the people we strive to be. There is one thing to remember though; don't forget where you came from. Don't forget your roots, your younger self, and the 50 shades of who you are. We must know that it is our old selves that got us where we are today, it is all those "things" that built who we are. If it wasn't for Mary-Kate and Ashley I would not be the clothes loving, celebrity obsessing, passionate woman I am today (you can laugh at this). I mean the Dixie Chicks and Britney Spears were the ones that encouraged me to sing in the house every waking moment; my family thanks you.

I am not really sure where I was heading with this post but I hope you all get the point. I realized towards the end of my car ride as I belted out "Cowboy Take Me Away" that the Dixie Chicks never left, heck I was probably the only woman in America singing their song but that was their legacy, that was their purpose…now, what's yours?

Happy Wednesday Ya'll
