I always seem to allow the titles of my blogposts to not only have relevancy to an event or situation that has occurred, but to also to link to a message. So hopefully this will help all recent grade 12 graduates who feel like their life is at a stand still right now. You feel like if your life was a movie it has just been pausedÂ without any indication as to why (and itâ€™s not cause you have to go make popcorn). And itâ€™s frustrating because your in a desperate search for aÂ miracle to move you in the right direction.
If you are not following me on Instagram or we arenâ€™t Facebook friends that you would not know that I recently went to The 1975 concert in Brisbane. (Photos below) I promise this is appropriate towards my message! Honestly this UK originated band are incredible! The mosh pit was crazy hot and sweaty but I would go back in a heart beat. Concerts make you feel so alive! Anyways, in one of their songs called ‘So Far (Itâ€™s Alright)â€™ hardly anyone in the crowd knew all of the words until the one lined chorus came on saying â€œYeah so far itâ€™s alright, alright.. babyâ€.Â Needless to say 40 seconds into the song it became the only lineÂ our voices synchronised too.
Late last night I was on the phone and out of the blue I kinda started panicking about what I am supposed to do this year. I got so overwhelmed that I was almost crying (not going to lie I actually had a few tears and a lot of silence before my friend was like â€œWooh – Â Elz calm down, are you alright?”).
Maybe it wasÂ because it was close to midnight or maybe because I was sitting outside on the road being reckless (something I tend to do a lotÂ to get the best view of the nights sky) or maybe because Iâ€™m yet to find what I am passionate about that will lead me in some direction.
Perhaps Iâ€™m too dramatic, but I swear most teenagers are!!
Both of these circumstances got me thinking about how we can sing lyrics to a song which promise that everything will be alright, yet when we donâ€™t feel alright we tend to fall into a ball of overwhelming anxiety of the unknown. Iâ€™ve found that the most common phrase that someone will ask is â€œAre you alright?â€, with about 70% of the time I am not, 30% is me lying.Â Â
But I know It is going to be alright and I must keepÂ reminding myself of this daily. Itâ€™s a constant 24/7 struggle between positive and negative thoughts and I need moments like these to pull me back to Earth andÂ the amazing purpose that my life has!
So this is just something I have been thinking about in the past 24 hours and I hope it can speak to you in some way or another. Feel free to share this post on any social media outlet.
Much love to all bloggers/ followers/ randoms who stumbled across DIVF.
