I think since childhood, i’ve heard the song “Hey Jude” hundreds of times on the radio, in the car, in elevators, crappy cover bands and drunken karaoke. I never really think that song could change my life at such a perfect time, I don’t know if perfect is the right word to use for this time in my life… but it’s certainly a lyrical mirror to my current situation brewing in my head and home.
The last few days i’ve certainly hit a rough point… feeling like a stranger in my own town, helpless to my ill father and wondering if what I am working so hard towards will even work out. I can’t remember the last time i’ve seen a paycheck or a full wine bottle. If there was a hashtag for this it would be #passionFAIL. The other day, I had the radio on and “Hey Jude” was playing once again, almost tuned out like most things entering my brain currently. This time I sat there, listened and sang along. A wonderful celebration of life at one of my darkest hours, the words spoke to me telling me to keep going. To take this sad song and make it better.
If you are going through a rough time in your life. Stop, turn those speakers up and listen.
Belt it all out… I know you know the words.
In the midst of all chaos in your life. Take whatever inspiration you can hold on to, let it into your heart. Go out there and find your passion again, make things better. Don’t wait for anyone to do it for you, you have to do it. Don’t lose your mind… use it.
There’s always two ways you can go at this point, to the bottom or to the top… you can bet your Beatles I am going to start climbing back up right now. I already started a new creative project to focus on this “Blue Period” of my life and am looking forward to writing the next chapter of Miss Destructo.
