we are infinite.

There is a particular scene in The Perks of Being a Wallflower where the character exclaims: “And in that moment, I swear we were infinite”, and this quote truly resonates with me. I guess it can be interpreted differently by different people, but it always reminds me of that feeling you get when you feel one with the universe, where you are free from wants, needs or worries and are content with the present. When you feel like you can conquer everything and nothing can hurt you. And when you feel like you are part of everything, from the air that you breath to the people around you. It’s the kind of feeling that it quite hard to put into words, and I guess that’s what makes it so special. But “where words fail, music speaks” and undoubtedly, Hans Christian Andersen knows what he’s talking about.

Sometimes you come across a song that fills you up with this ethereal feeling and goosebumps appear all over your arms, like your body wants to display this enchantment to the whole world. I always save these songs so I could listen to them on repeat whenever I feel uninspired or disconnected from the world around me. They are a medicine to my soul on those days when I feel numb inside, as if I am merely existing but not truly living. So if I had to describe to you what it personally means to feel infinite and whole, just like Charlie, my only words are: listen to this playlist! If nothing else, I hope you at least enjoy the music 🙂 x
