My favourite band while growing up is the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
I really wanted to blend into the western culture when I came to Canada, so I started watching Much Music to learn more about what’s popular in the music scene.
Under the Bridge was the first music video I watched and fell in love.
I loved the melody of the song, I fell in love with Anthony Kiedis’ voice, and he was really good looking! 🤩
But funniest thing is, I didn’t catch the name of the band and the song title at that time (because I didn’t know how the information was displayed!). So I didn’t find out they’re called the Chili Peppers, and the song’s called Under the Bridge until probably a year later. 🤣😅
Years later, they came out with a song called Deep Kick, and in the lyrics they said, “It’s better to regret something you did, than something you didn’t do”. (Referring to Butthole Surfers song called Sweat Loaf)
That was the motto I lived by, and I actually used that as my high school graduation quote. 🤣🤣🤣
This quote actually holds a lot of meaning for me. Because for a girl who is scared of a lot of things, this quote gave me enough courage to try different things.
And I am glad I’m still living by it.
What about you? Is there a motto you live by?
