“The Middle” – Jimmy Eat World |x|
Let’s take it back to 2001 with one of our favorite and let’s be real, the greatest go-to, feel good songs in history. ”The Middle“ does a superlative job with it’s compelling lyrics and astounding melody. And most importantly, it’s so fantastic on it’s own, there aren’t enough words to describe it. Isolate yourself from everything you know for a moment and really listen to the song – take the lyrics in and allow yourself to believe that everything will be alright (pun totally intended).
”Just be yourself, it doesn’t matter if it’s good enough for someone else.“
Our minds have a horrific way of forcing us to believe that it’s never enough, that giving up is easier than the fight to pursue what we want. Our minds try to convince us that looking down at ourselves is better than loving ourselves because it’s what we deserve. Our minds can be insanely wrong. You are wonderful. You have been uniquely created to shine. Stay kind, pure at heart, fight for what you want, and love yourself along the way. And remember that there’s beauty in the middle – in the end, your entire story will be an excellent one.
