“The Anthem”

It’s a new day, but it all feels old
It’s a good life, that’s what I’m told
But everything, it all just feels the same

At my high school, it felt more to me
Like a jail cell, a penitentiary
My time spent there only made me see

That I don’t ever wanna be like you
I don’t wanna do the things you do
I’m never gonna hear the words you say
And I don’t ever wanna

I don’t ever wanna be you
Don’t wanna be just like you
What I’m sayin’ is, this is the anthem
Throw all your hands up
You, don’t wanna be you

Go to college, a university
Get a real job, that’s what they said to me
But I could never live the way they want

I’m gonna get by and just do my time
Out of step, while they all get in line
I’m just a minor threat, so pay no mind

Do you really wanna be like them
Do you really wanna be another trend
Do you wanna be part of their drill
‘Cause I don’t ever wanna

I don’t ever wanna be you
Don’t wanna be just like you
What I’m sayin’ is, this is the anthem
Throw all your hands up
You, don’t wanna be you

Shake it once, that’s fine
Shake it twice, that’s okay
Shake it three times, you’re playing with yourself again

You, don’t wanna be just like you
What I’m sayin’ is, this is the anthem
Throw all your hands up
Y’all got to feel me, sing if you’re with me

You, don’t wanna be just like you (be just like you)
This is the anthem throw all your hands up
Y’all got to feel me, sing if you’re with me

Another loser anthem (whoa)
Another loser anthem (whoa)
Another loser anthem (whoa)
Another loser anthem

The Bohemian Essayist, Abolitionist & Philosopher: Henry David Thoreau

This time last year I paraphrased an immensely inspiring quote by Henry David Thoreau โ€œI learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.โ€ย 

 

A year later I am truly living by this. This time last year I was jobless, feeling depressed/hopeless and had health problems-I’m still recovering there are still ups and downs but I have accomplished so much in recent weeks alone. A year after originally sharing that quote I have x3 books, online boutiques and so much more in the works.

Thoreau is our September selection because his words are deep and meaningful. If I hadn’t learned the importance to live a dream one imagines and desires – albeit vaguely –ย my blog –ย would not have continued on, there’d be no publications by me… If someone told me this time last year that not only would I be inspired by Thoreau’s word but I would actually take action and accomplish so much so fast I wouldn’t have believed you.

I’m taking a moment to look and assess how far I’ve come in such a short time frame. I’ve met lot’s of interesting creative types, I’ve read and taken the time to understand the importance of following your dreams. I’ve not just been listening and reading I have taken relevant steps to applying what I’ve learned sometimes they’ve been small steps others quantum leaps into making my dreams and passions a realityย (some passions were simply dormant and unknown to me-I only ever had a vagueย ideally of what I wanted which was essentially to get published.)ย I’m also working hard to make sure that this all combines to provide myself a good career path.

And so my dear and very loyal reader’s I shall leave you with more inspiring quotes by Henry and who knows maybe it couldย spark a creative streak of success for you too! Good luck!

โ™กย โ€œDreams are the touchstones of our characters.โ€ย 

โ™กย  โ€œBe yourself- not your idea of what you think somebody else’s idea of yourself should be.โ€ย 

โ™กย  โ€œMost men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.โ€ย ย
