It’s hard for me to write this because I never dreamed that I would have to write a blog about how the end of My Chemical Romance was affecting me.
When I first found out, which, thankfully, was from my besties after a long day of work and not sitting alone at work in front of a computer screen, I was speechless. Mouth hanging open. Distraught.
The funny thing is.. they were like “you need to sit down. We have something we have to tell you.”
I was all “did someone die?”
“Worse,” they said.
“What? Like My Chemical Romance broke up? Or Blue October?” I joked.
They just looked at me.
Dear Tumblr users who I don’t know in real life,
I really like seeing your personal posts, even the whiny angsty ones, and particularly the strange boring ones. I like these little windows into your lives even if I’ve never seen pictures of you and all I really know is that we like a few of the same tv shows. Please continue to let me read your to do lists and your conversations with strange relatives.
Stranger from the internet.
When we take a moment to listen to our inner guide, we get clues that can lead us down the path toward true happiness. Choosing what makes us feel happy over what makes us feel safe can take us out of our comfort zone; yet when we connect our passions with our actions, we stop seeking and start living. Find your joy: listen to yourself, and take action.
Start a conversation with your inner guide. Ask yourself these three questions, and listen closely to the answers.
1) What makes you happy?
My friends, my artwork, sewing, making things with my hands, singing.
2) What are you passionate about?
Taking care of my lil pirate crew & making a future with my creative projects.
3) How can you bring more of that into your life?
I don’t think I need to work on the crew aspect (I’m sure they would say they already see more than enuf of me LOL) but I could work more consciously on my projects. I let myself get too easily distracted like its not a worthy use of my time or my friends will get mad if I spend too much time on my creative work, but I know that’s silly bc they have their own stuff to work on.
I’m making a conscious effort in the new to be more aware of how much space I give to myself. And trying to be aware of self sabotage and unnecessary distractions from what brings me joy the most.
