“Don’t let your feelings dictate your actions. Let your actions dictate your feelings”. It’s been my personal creed for a long time. What does it mean? It means that just because you feel a certain way it doesn’t mean you have to act that way. It means when you feel scared you can act confident. It means when you feel worn down you can act like you have all the energy in the world. It means when you feel old you can act like you’re young.
I never allow myself to feel bad for very long. When I feel bad, feel tired, or feel like I can’t do something I don’t act that way. I act the exact opposite. I act like I’m too of the world. I act like I have unlimited energy. I act like I can’t fail.
I told you that today was difficult. I told you I felt old. I didn’t let that last very long. I made those negative feelings go away fast. I don’t have time for them in my life. I created a playlist from years gone by and got my ass to work. It was a playlist that reminds me of the hotheaded kid who used to work in clubs (hence the music), got in way too many fights, and stayed up way too late and woke up way too early. It reminds me of the kid who had zero fucks to give and wanted to conquer the world.
Truth is I don’t need a song, or a trick to become that person. That kid is always inside me just waiting for the switch to be flipped whenever he needs to come out and play again. #everydamnday #actionsoverfeelings
