The Best Things We Can Learn From Rock Music

The Best Things We Can Learn From Rock Music

Rock music can teach us so much. It helps us forget the past, and forget about the future. There’s so much to learn from rock music. It helps us live in the moment in a way that is utterly magnificent and beautiful. Just like the Forth of July, when listening to rock music, you become a sort of crackling kind of firework. You blow everyone to pieces.

1. You Are Apt To Be Yourself – Who You Really Are

Rock music teaches you so much, especially about being just nothing but yourself. Why should you be or act like someone you are truly not? Rock music enables you to let go and have the time of your life. It is an escape… a righteous one, I must add!

2. You Scream At The Top Of Your Lungs

Screaming at the top of your lungs can be a good thing. It helps you release all the toxins inside of you. It creates an uplifting sort of pleasurable feeling whilst listening to rock music. I must say, there is no other feeling that compares to this one. Go to a rock concert and see the magic unfold. You will never regret it. I promise. The only thing that might happen is you might have a little too much fun. What is so bad about that? Absolutely and positively nothing. So, rock on folks! Don’t let anything stop you from having the time of your lives. To tell you the truth, it is also a magical sort of outlet. However, for this one, you must experience and not simply talk about it. So, go out there and have fun. It truly is magical, and utterly amazing!

3. It Is A Sort Of Creative Process

Rock music is a creative process. Why and how do these rock musicians come up with such awe-inspiring lyrics that touch the strings of our deepest hearts? Something like this is termed creativity in every way. I sure don’t have talent like that, but if I did, I would truly be blessed.

4. You Have The Ability To Enjoy the Present Moment

The fast paced music will get you off your butt, and enjoy the music. You will be forced to start living in the moment… and embrace whatever it is that is around you. Like Katy Perry states in her song Firework, “You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine… Come on show what your worth… as you shoot across the sky.”

5. You Can Express Who You Are

Rock lyrics are simply amazing and heartfelt. They help you express yourself in a way that no other kind of music does.

6. You Release All Your Negativity Through The Rock Music

Rock music may be loud and enraging, but it is about letting go and living your life without any conditions or restrictions, which in my view is utterly magnetic and beautiful. Why live a life in a cell? There is nothing wrong with loud and blasting music, especially if its underlying reason is to help you become more like your true self. I feel it is a wonderful thing.

7. You Engage Yourself

You engage yourself when rocking to the music. It is beautiful and utterly splendid. I think that is really nice for being yourself and engaging yourself.

8. You Wash Away All Doubts And Stupid Fears

Doubts and fears hold us back. Fear is a boundary that does not let anything pass through, kind of like a solid membrane. However, rock music has the ability to wash away these inferiority complexes in a way to help you lead a more rewarding life.

9. You Are A Firework

Like Katy Perry’s song “Firework,” rock music is the foundation to help you become the firework, igniting and lighting in the sky to brighten your surroundings. So, don’t be afraid. Be that firework so you can be happy for the rest of your life.

10. You Leave Everyone Speechless

Since you are so shy you hold yourself back sometimes. However, when you listen to rock music, you will be able to get back up on your feet, without feeling ashamed or shy for that matter. Just try it and see for yourself. You will only benefit from it. There is nothing to lose.

12 Things You Should Remember When Feeling Lost in Life

12 Things You Should Remember When Feeling Lost in Life

Even the most charismatic people you know, whether in person or celebrities of some sort, experience days where they feel lost in life and isolated from everyone else.

While it’s good to know we aren’t alone in this feeling, the question still remains:

What should we do when we feel lost and lonely?

Here are 12 things to remember:

1. Recognize That It’s Okay!

The truth is, there are times you need to be alone. If you’ve always been accustomed to being in contact with people, this may prove difficult.

However, learning how to be alone and comfortable in your own skin will give you confidence and a sense of self reliance.

We cheat ourselves out of the opportunity to become self reliant when we look for constant companionship.

2. Use Your Lost and Loneliness as a Self-Directing Guide

You’ve most likely heard the expression: “You have to know where you’ve been to know where you’re going.”

Loneliness also serves as a life signal to indicate you’re in search of something. It’s when we’re in the midst of solitude that answers come from true soul searching.

Remember, there is more to life than what you’re feeling.

3. Realize Loneliness Helps You Face the Truth

Being in the constant company of others, although comforting sometimes, can often serve as a distraction when we need to face the reality of a situation.

Solitude cuts straight to the chase and forces you to deal with the problem at hand. See it as a blessing that can serve as a catalyst to set things right!

4. Be Aware That You Have More Control Than You Think

Typically, when we see ourselves as being lost or lonely, it gives us an excuse to view everything we come in contact with in a negative light. It lends itself to putting ourselves in the victim mode, when the truth of the matter is that you choose your attitude in every situation.

No one can force a feeling upon you! It is YOU who has the ultimate say as to how you choose to react.

5. Embrace the Freedom That the Feeling of Being Alone Can Offer

Instead of wallowing in self pity, which many are prone to do because of loneliness, try looking at your circumstance as a new-found freedom.

Most people are in constant need of approval of their viewpoints. Try enjoying the fact that  you don’t need everyone you care about to support your decisions.

6. Acknowledge the Person You Are Now

Perhaps you feel a sense of loneliness and confusion because your life circumstances have taken you away from the persona that others know to be you.

Perhaps the new you differs radically from the old. Realize that life is about change and how we react to that change. It’s okay that you’re not who you used to be.

7. Keep Striving to Do Your Best

Often those who are feeling isolated and unto themselves will develop a defeatist attitude. They’ll do substandard work because their self esteem is low and they don’t care.

Never let this feeling take away your sense of worth! Do your best always and when you come through this dark time, others will admire how you stayed determined in spite of the obstacles you had to overcome.

And to live your best life, you must do this ONE thing: step out of your comfort zone.

8. Don’t Forget That Time Is Precious

When we’re lost in a sea of loneliness and depression, it’s all too easy to reflect on regrets of past life events. This does nothing but feed negativity and perpetuate the situation.

Instead of falling prey to this common pitfall, put one foot in front of the other and acknowledge every positive step you take. By doing this, you can celebrate the struggles you overcome at the end of the day.

9. Remember, Things Happen for a Reason

Every circumstance we encounter in our life is designed to teach us and that lesson is in turn passed on to others.

Sometimes we’re fortunate enough to figure out the lesson to be learned, while other times, we simply need to have faith that if the lesson wasn’t meant directly for us to learn from, how we handled it was observed by someone who needed to learn.

Your solitude and feeling of lost, in this instance, although painful possibly, may be teaching someone else.

10. Journal During This Time

Record your thoughts when you’re at the height of loneliness and feeling lost. You’ll be amazed when you reflect back at how you viewed things at the time and how far you’ve come later.

This time (if recorded) can give you a keen insight into who you are and what makes you feel the way you feel.

11. Remember You Aren’t the First to Feel This Way

It’s quite common to feel as if we’re alone and no one else has ever felt this way before. We think this because at the time of our distress, we’re silently observing others around us who are seemingly fine in every way.

The truth is, we can’t possibly know the struggles of those around us unless they elect to share them. We ALL have known this pain!

Try confiding in someone you trust and ask them how they deal with these feelings when they experienced it. You may be surprised at what you learn.

12. Ask for Help If the Problem Persists

The feeling of being lost and lonely is common to everyone, but typically it will last for a relatively short period of time.

Most people will confess to, at one time or another, being in a “funk.” But if the problem persists longer than you feel it should, don’t ignore it.

When your ability to reason and consider things rationally becomes impaired, do not poo poo the problem away and think it isn’t worthy of attention. Seek medical help.

Afraid to ask for help? Here’s how to change your outlook to aim high!

Final Thoughts

Loneliness and a sense of feeling lost can in many ways be extremely painful and difficult to deal with at best. However, these feelings can also serve as a catalyst for change in our lives if we acknowledge them and act.

Above anything, cherish your mental well being and don’t underestimate its worth. Seek professional guidance if you’re unable to distinguish between a sense of freedom for yourself and a sense of despair.
