You know when you're just inspired? Maybe by a place, or the color of the sky, or what you had for breakfast? I wish that happened to me more often. A lot of the time, you don't know exactly what inspired you. Or you're not quite sure. And then you start looking for inspiration in random places, because you thinks it's there, ready to be picked from the tree. Big news : inspiration does not want to be found. It hides itself in simple things so that you won't find it. Duh. Inspiration comes and goes as it pleases, it and only it chooses the place or the moment to appear. It's like happiness. People often seek happiness in extreme forms, when they shouldn't try to look that far. They shouldn't look, they should see what's right there most of the time. When you're out of inspiration, just stop. Don't give yourself a migraine, don't despair. Switch. Slack. Make yourself happy through simple things. You may think it shallow, but honestly, you have to put your snooty side in the drawer. Inspiration doesn't come to snooty people. Inspiration is one of those things that doesn't like to be uncared for. If you let it go, it'll come back out of pure narcissism. Don't sweat it. -Poppyseed
Having a dream and living your dream. Hmmm. Yeah, there's a huge step from one to the other. You don't have to have a dream. I don't think. I don't have a dream. Well, I don't have one dream ;). I have many small wishes. I guess, to have a dream, you need creative visualization and perseverance. I don't stand a chance. Most people you talk to have a dream, a passion, or goals... And you haven't decided yet, and you feel like a screw up, and like you don't have a purpose. Hey. Wake up. It's a real world out there. We come in all different shapes and sizes. You'll have a dream. You might already have one, you just didn't realize it. It might be right there, staring you in the face, but you can't see it because maybe you don't have the tools to explore it yet. People recreate their goals and ambitions all the time. They change careers, they change their lives. You don't need a goal by the time you're fifteen because you might go to a performing arts high school and have a dancing career, and oh wait, maybe there's a producer in town and you think you can make a living from singing etc... Wow. Slow down, take a deep breath, and let it out. Life is not a "once in a lifetime" thing. And don't think you're inferior because you're not planning on going to SODA your freshman year, because you're absolutely driven as a dancer. I'm not saying it's bad. Don't get me wrong. I would love to do that. But I think a lot of people just feel... submerged by the competition out there to have your future planned out. At least, that's my personal experience. BTW no relation to the song. Well, a little... it's about dreams and stereotypes and crushing other people's dreams (I think, I'm not really sure...). Anyhoo, great song. I also recommend "I Am Not A Robot" by the same artist (Marina and the Diamonds).
