Happy Friday, Guys!
Or should we say – Friyay? Not only is it the end of yet another week, it’s also the day that I finally get to see Years & Years in concert! Eeeeek! So so so excited! They have to be my favorite band of the year, as I’ve constantly been playing their debut album Communion – I just don’t think I’ll ever get sick of it! Eyes Shut is definitely among my favorite songs of the year <3
Speaking of favorite songs – last night Charly and I took a little roadtrip up to Frankfurt and it was a car-ride from HELL! We basically drove through a monsoon, in the pitch black, not seeing shit – it was the scariest moment I’ve ever had in my car, EVER! We were however accompanied by little Olly and his golden voice, and a much needed dose of the Biebs as I obviously put on PURPOSE for most of the ride! Having been a firm Belieber for pretty much most of my teenage/adolescent life, I feel almost proud and certainly happy that he finally gets the praise for his work that his obvious talent deserves. After countless years of Bieber-Bashing and media scrutiny, it’s cool to see a wave of positivity and praise and people (other than teenage girls) enjoying his music. It’s not too late to say I’m SORRY now! ;)
As much as I love the album and it’s title, it was not the main reason for naming this post. The concept of purpose, the search for it and lack thereof has been on my mind quite a lot recently, especially since graduating. I suppose it’s a time in life when it’s easy to lose sight of it – „what am I doing“, „where am I going“, „where do I want to be“ have been questions I often ask myself, and I find it helpful to concentrate on the happy place I’m in creatively right now. I’m usually a person that is used to working, studying, always being on her toes, so not being productive drives me quite insane. I don’t enjoy having too much free time on my hand, but I believe everything happens for a reason and I do quite enjoy having time to work on my blog! My sisters and friends have been helping and driving me massively which is always a blessing! In the end, it’s all about finding your purpose and being persistent in that search. Sometimes it takes longer than you’d expect…but I’m certain we’ll all find it. To finish it off, here’s an extract of the title song of Purpose, which is one of my favorites:
You can’t be hard on yourself
For these were the cards that you were given so you have to understand that these, like…
That’s not who you are
You’re trying to be the best you can be but that’s all you can do
If you don’t give it all you got, you’re only cheating yourself
Give it all you got
But if it ends up happening, it ends up happening.
Have a fantastic weekend, guys! Lots of love. X
