I’ve been thinking a lot recently about Sleeping With Sirens’ song Roger Rabbit. I have always loved the song,and seeing the band perform it live is truly magical, but recently the lyrics have really impacted me and my choices.
You know when you’re feeling some sort of mood-whether it’s happy, sad, angry, or excited-and you hear a song and something in your mind just clicks and you’re sitting there thinking “Wow. This song represents my life.” Well that is what happened to me around a week ago. I was a little grumpy and I was lying on my bed with music playing and this song came on and it hit me. I needed to say all that I had to say.
In my life I had gotten into the terrible habit of waiting around and expecting someone else to fix a situation, or make the first move, or realize their mistakes before I talked to them about it. When I had that moment that I was describing I realized that I had to step out of my comfort zone and make a change happen instead of wait for one.
The outcome of this decision has been a blessing. I am beyond relieved I have finally learned this lesson and I encourage all of you to try this as well. Speak your mind, tell people what you want, show your emotions, say you love someone, stop the people who are bringing you down, make mistakes, and start living your life the way you want to live it.
