Have you ever felt as if you were about to break into a rebellious period? By that I DONT mean you suddenly feel an urge to vandalize the streets, cover your face with tattoos or get arrested. What I mean is getting into a period where you feel you are about to break free, to be who you really want to be.
That sounds a bit dramatic but the other day my best friend told me: ” I can tell you are about to break into a rebellious period”, as I was sticking a temporary anchor tattoo on my arm. I thought about it all day and he was right, I can feel an urge for a change.
I guess the older I get, the more I realize what are the true priorities in life and most importantly, Im starting to care a little more about my gut feeling, listen to it a little more often. I don’t feel the urge to cover my face with tattoos or start playing heavy rock music on loud speaker, but I do feel the urge to speak my mind, say yes or no when I want to and have the freedom to be who I really want to be, despite what other people think.
At the end of the day, we are the ones who have to walk on our own shoes and the only ones who really get to live through the consequences of our own actions and decisions. I guess its a personal journey, to get to that moment of “rebellion”, or maybe its more like liberation, to be, love and do whatever it is you want to be, love and do, even if you get hurt in the process because life is a lesson and the more you fall, the better you will become at standing up again. Personally I am happy I am close to that moment and maybe I even get an extra tattoo…I definitely wont vandalize the streets tho…
