To the rebels, the weirdos, the freaks the losers.
The outcasts, loners, and misunderstood
The kids who couldn’t follow the rules, not because they were rule-breakers, but because the rules SUCKED!
This is for you.
You’re all of those things, and you’re none of those things.
And it sure as shit sucks to try and fit into this world.
It’s hard, it’s painful, it’s fucking soul-destroying at times,
But here’s the thing
You’re not alone
There aren’t hundreds of us, there are thousands, and by rising up and following our hearts, the instincts we’ve been taught to push down, choke, throttle and silence… doing the shit that makes us miserable every damn day.
By following those instincts instead, listening, paying attention, doing the thing and following through, then sure as shit things will change.
You will no longer feel like a loser.
The one who doesn’t deserve to be in the game because you don’t fit into the box
FUCK THE BOX!
The box is for the other people
The ones who need the rules,
The “this is how its’ done” mentality.
Let them have their boxes, hell let ’em stand on it if they want and shout their shit for more box-folk to hear them.
They need it
But while you’re stood by watching, just realise…remember…
That box isn’t for you.
Its got fuck all to do with you
You’ve got your own thing going on,
And it can’t be defined by what the others see
They need that box.
To feel welcome
Don’t be limited by their box.
Rise up, do your thing
Own the skies and fly high doing it your way.
Build a freaking rollercoaster of your own and ride that shit like your life depends on it.
Because it does,
Start off steady, build up the pace
Rise up slowly,
It doesn’t matter how fast you hurtle downwards because that’s just building up speed and momentum for your next rise.
Breathe on the flats, ready to do it all again.
That’s more fun.
Just writing that, and reading it back my heart starts to race… it’s thrilling, exciting… it’s LIVING!
You don’t need a motherfucking box with all its boring walls thats the same as everyone else’s.
You’ll get one of those when you die.
Why would you wanna live in one?
Are you practising to be dead already?
This ain’t meant to be a test run for the end of your damn days (cos that’s where it’s heading)
But here’s what I know… I’d rather live my rickety rollercoaster life, with one wheel falling off, and no safety belt every damn day of life waiting to see what’s around the next bend, than the boring as shit safe box life where I make no decisions, other than the safe decisions.
I’d rather decide, live, play, learn, let go, fail and fuck up than do nothing.
Do nothing and play safe
Sit in my box
Watch TV every night and go to work every day
That’s not living
WHY would you do that to yourself?
I’m not saying it’s not right for some people… for some people that IS how they want to spend their life, and thats fine. That’s up to them, and they’re welcome to it as long as they’re not telling me I should be doing the same.
It’s not for me…
Is it for you?
Then why are you living like that?
You’re not… chances are, if you’re anything like me, you’ll be doing less than that
You’ll not be rising up the ladder (which is way less fun than rolling up a rollercoaster)
Instead, it all feels hard
So you stop
You feel flat
Feel like its all just shit
You make yourself ill
Maybe physically, definitely emotionally
You’re miserable and have no joy in life.
You feel weighed down. trapped
And it’s all because you’re caged in, like a wild animal in a tiny enclosure.
Or worse… you’re trying to get into the cage.
Why would you do that?
It’s not yours.
Get the fuck out of the cage.
Live life the way you’re meant to
The way your heart and soul is screaming at you to
I get it. We’ve all been there, so let’s sort this shit out
It sucks, right?
That shitty low feeling where you just feel down, deflated, pissed off with the world for no reason, and you’ve just had enough.
You’re not particularly angry, or sad, or maybe you are, maybe you’re just feeling “ugh!” (yes, that’s a real feeling) that kinda nothingness where you know something’s up, but you’re not quite sure what.
Well, how about we get right in there and sort that shit out?
This is my personal 5-Step Reset that I go through to get me from Feelin’ Like Shit to Rockin’ It!
I’m not saying it’ll be fun n easy, there’s no magic cure, but this works, every time.
I come back to this all the time, and I’ve shared it with my closest friends when they’re having a shitty day (or a week, or month, or however long) and it works for them too…
So how about it, are you done feelin’ like shit? Are you ready? Let’s go
Drop your details into the form, and I’m gonna send you over a quick audio that talks you through the 5 steps I take, that are going to help you go from
Feelin’ Like Shit to Rockin’ It!
