Waiting for life

“Look at you. You’re young. And you’re scared. Why are you so scared? Stop being paralyzed. Stop swallowing your words. Stop caring what other people think. Wear what you want. Say what you want. Listen to the music you want to listen to. Play it loud as fuck and dance to it. Go out for a drive at midnight and forget that you have school the next day. Stop waiting for Friday. Live now. Do it now. Take risks. Tell secrets. This life is yours. When are you going to realize that you can do whatever you want?”

This was kinda meant to be a bit more deep and meaningful than it will turn out but I’m really quite tired (actually hungover) and feeling a bit silly and the quote explains itself. I always feel like life hasn’t quite started yet but really we’re stuck smack bang in the middle of it right now, and it’s not going to start ‘in two years when I’m qualified’ or when the ‘dream job’ comes up. Sometimes the silly things we do are the most fun. The silly things that make you laugh uncontrollably will be the memories you hang on to when you’re old and grey (cliché cheesy line right there) .

Life is now and also pretty short so we should be spending our time with people we like, doing things we enjoy in places that make us happy.

I had a lengthy discussion about this stuff last night with a friend.

If only I could remember the revelations.
