I’ve been nothing but a puppets hand
But nothing ever comes
Without a change*
I have a new alarm sound.
And a new life.
Meanwhile I am celebrating my first month in my new position as a freelancer.
And guess what: I survived! And much better than my fears would have let me believe in the beginning.
Truth be told, the first weeks were a mess. There was such a lot to do, organize, and, above all, to be learned that, more than once, I felt like just breaking down under the weight of it all and giving up.
There were moments when I seriously questioned the decision I had made and started doubting everything. And yet, there I was, without any safety net. And: absolutely free.
Time for some motivation, I thought.
Which I found in that song by Grouplove.
I have set it as my alarm which now wakes me up every morning. And the effects are amazing. Once my alarm goes off my spirit is being kindled immediately and I can’t but get into a good mood.
Been wondering, I take a chance
That chance is circumstance
Cause nothing ever comes without a change*
The song keeps reminding me of something I had almost forgotten amidst all the stress and pressure: that if I want my life to change, change is what I have to do. And that taking a step without knowing exactly where it will lead might in fact yield wonderful results.
And also that, by means of my thoughts, I am the creator of my own life.
So I might as well create it according to my dreams. And make it my fantasy.
Welcome to your, welcome to your
Welcome to your world, my girl
Let it be your fantasy, oh yeah
Welcome to your life, yeah, yeahA
It could be a fantasy, oh yeah.*
Which life are you choosing to create today?
