If you've clicked around my site or social medias at all, you have probably seen me reference this song several times, and say that this song connects very deeply to my life in the past few years.
For all of you that have been wondering what I mean by that, here is the story:
I have been a lazy teenager. I was taken out of middle school because I have was having personal problems, and therefore was home schooled for all of high school. It wasn't fun. I never, ever got any work done and spent my days watching TV shows and procrastinating. Honestly, I should probably be in 11th grade this next year. For my senior year, I took some classes at my local college, in a program that allows teens to take all of their HS classes at the school for a diploma AND dual credit. It was a really good idea. Just so you know, however, at this point I've decided to just take the TASC test and be done with school. The reason for this leads into this song reference...
Over these few years, I have felt.. asleep. Dead. Like I'm just waiting for LIFE to come in and shake me awake. Probably 80% of this comes from how I take care of my body. Or don't, rather. I don't eat properly whatsoever, and my sleep schedule is totally wacky. I want to feel awake, but I don't want to sacrifice my addictions to habit. I want to feel alive.
I am in the process of waking up.
I know that you can't change bad habits overnight, but I'm moving toward those steps to get me into a good routine, and a way to take care of my body and... live. Not spend all day on Netflix or laying on my bed contemplating life... I actually want to get up and DO something!
I saw a quote on Facebook the other day... not sure who posted it but it said "What you allow is what will continue." I hope to encourage you all to think about this and what it is really saying. You have a lot of control over what happens in your life. If you are in a bad habit or situation, most of the time you have the ability to change that, and not let it continue. I'm talking to myself here; but I hope that we all can learn this lesson together.
This song connects with me in a beautiful, healing, wonderful way. This is my story. My life. NF is so real. Listen...
