"Try and stay out of your head. I have seen you invent the damnedest things there." (Take A Bow - Greg Laswell)
There comes a point in life where you get tired. Physically, emotionally, mentally. You feel as though your life is going in circles, your days made of of the same routines, the same faces, the same schedule. It's the kind of patient-too-long frustration you get when you absolutely are craving some kind of change from your state of mind... your life. It's that feeling you know you've had before, but it was a long while ago. It's a kind of epic nostalgia. It's back now and it makes you want to leap out of your chest with your soul and run. You don't know where you're going and you don't know exactly where you want to go, you just know you have to fulfill something before it's too late. You have to fulfill a lot of things. You're making a mental bucket list right now. It kills you when you think of all the things you want to do, but seem like you'd need a million life times to complete.
Fallen into your routine. Trapped in your body. Your soul is so much older than your face
Truth is, you really are the only person in control of your life. You could literally do most of anything you wanted. It's just the string of emotions that goes along with indecision on if it's the right choice. The 'grass is greener' feeling you're familiar with. You know you want change, but would it be better? When is the right time to do it? You always hear these quotes along the lines of something cheesy like "The time, is now." This may be true... but there will always be that subconscious voice telling you to wait... telling you you're not ready... telling you that there's some kind of conflict, even if you can't pinpoint it exactly.
You just need to rest your mind. Stop looking at the past for answers... let go and stop looking at the future as well. Stop overthinking... because it's overthinking that turns perfectly good things, thoughts, decisions... into amazing dreadful masterpieces that your pretty little head has come up with...has made you believe.
Everything passes, and everything happens for a reason, for you to grow. For the others around you to grow.
Don't let your so easily-influenced self get the better of you. CHANGE something when you can, and know that the decision you made... is always the right one. The big choices we have to make...well, everything passes. Everything is temporary. And it's not the end if its not been worked out.
If it were curiosity that killed the cat... well then it must have been the over-thought, emotional build up and stress that killed the human. LOL.
So thank you life, for all your "unfairness" that turn out to be the greatest lessons of life. Even if we never LEARN from these lessons, at least we've experienced.
Cheers to the teenage years, the never ending battle between who you are, who you wish you were and who you think you should be. The battle between morals, freedom, and the world at large. The wild minds of us youth and the ever present over-thought that seems to go into (almost) every detail of our days.
The most difficult times of our lives? Yes. But the most beautiful, creative, exciting, new and influential? Most definitely.
And most importantly; don't RUSH. It's such a common mistake we make when we're tired of everything. You've 'played your heart out', so rest. Rest your mind, your emotions. Take some time for yourself. Spend TIME with yourself (just not in your head) ; )
I adore this song, and it's so spot on with life right now too. Wonderful. You know who's a beautiful person? Greg Laswell. Genius.
I leave for London tomorrow... see you all in a couple of weeks! (Sorry that I won't be able to reply to all of these comments right away... I'll catch up as soon as I'm home!)
I REALLY apologize for this description... I may have written it at 4am... lovely.
