Meditation: Day 26 / 100 — “I’d Rather Be Anything But Ordinary Please”

So, I was listening to your girl Avril Lavigne the other day,

As you do,

She rocked. She still rocks.

She brings me back to 10 year old me singing in my mirror with a hairbrush and acting out a concert to my teddies.

Seriously.

And this song came on while I was walking to work — “Anything But Ordinary”…

MAN I LOVE IT.

Guilty pleasure, no shame, no cares,

And the song, it sums me up pretty well.

I don’t do anything ‘ordinary’, really. And I think among friends, and people who know ‘of’ me, know that.

My friends, they’re used to ‘me’…

But those who aren’t… they can throw some funny comments at me…

Like a guy I went on a few dates with once…

Always slamming my lifestyle and passing comments at the way I sleep, what I eat, my career, my entire lifestyle basically…

And even though it was his ‘sense of humour’ (or so he said) after a while, it grew a bit old.

I used to be really, really, really self-conscious,

Painfully.

I used to go against what felt good to me. Used to buy certain things because they were ‘fashionable’ and ‘cool’.

Say yes to going to parties even though I’m not really a fan.

Stay up late to please others and carry on talking even though I knew I’d feel tired the next day.

Run around after people to meet their needs and not mine.

Say yes even when I painfully wanted to say… no.

That was not a good time.

And I want to you know that you shouldn’t do anything that doesn’t feel right to you.

Really…

You shouldn’t shut yourself down, ignore yourself, and make yourself feel crap for others — it isn’t fair.

And it’s definitely not loving.

When you step into what feels good, what feels right, and what you hold true to your core, that is where the magic happens and you attract more of what you want…

And I feel like this song is one big hell yeah to that,

Embracing all that is you in this moment right now, so you can step in to your real potential,

You with me? 😉

So here’s the lyrics of the song I wanted to share with you in today’s post…

I’m never going to stop going to bed between 9 and 10… Hitting the gym early because that’s how I like it… Cooking every meal I eat and eating lots of sea salt… Wearing barefoot shoes (or none at all)… Putting gelatine in my coffee… Wearing gold highlighter on my cheek bones and rocking the liquid eyeliner flick, — no matter what anyone says.

Cos life feels good that way — stop wasting your time to please others, please YOU ❤

Now enjoy the song…

🎤 Sometimes I get so weird
I even freak myself out
I laugh myself to sleep
It’s my lullaby
Sometimes I drive so fast
Just to feel the danger
I want to scream
It makes me feel alive

“It is enough to love?
It is enough to breathe?
Somebody rip my heart out
And leave me here to bleed
Is it enough to die?
Somebody save my life
I’d rather be anything but ordinary please”

To walk within the lines
Would make my life so boring
I want to know that I
Have been to the extreme
So knock me off my feet
Come on now give it to me
Anything to make me feel alive

Let down your defenses
Use no common sense
If you look you will see
That this world is a beautiful
Accident turbulent succulent
Opulent permanent, no way
I want to taste it
Don’t want to waste it away

“It is enough to love?
It is enough to breathe?
Somebody rip my heart out
And leave me here to bleed
Is it enough to die?
Somebody save my life
I’d rather be anything but ordinary please”

Love you zillions,

Amy xo

    Loved this! I love the feeling of knowing who are you, being comfortable in who you are, and choosing to stay that way. I’m still in the process of learning how to do this, but it felt great seeing my feelings expressed .

    Fabulous post once again. There is seriously nothing more important than living life authentically. Every person who laughs at your lifestyle doesn’t matter when you’re living in ways that are true to yourself. I’m sure you know this. Doing what feels right is really the only way for one to thrive and to find others who will truly love and accept you. We owe it to our existence to be the fullest, most expressive versions of ourselves we can. You go girl! (PS, you are beautiful inside and out.)
