"Do You Ever Feel Like a Plastic Bag?"

Sometimes life gets the better of us- but that does not mean we do not push through.

"Do You Ever Feel Like a Plastic Bag?"
Thought Co

The other day the song “Firework” by Katy Perry just got stuck in my head for no reason. As I started to sing the lyrics in my head I never felt that the lyrics were more relevant to my life. Life is hard, sometimes it will get the best of you.

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind
Wanting to start again

As I get older the more I realize that life is so much more complex than sometimes you can fathom. Sometimes you get so lost in life you sit back and think about all the things you could have done differently and how much you wish you could start over.

Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards
One blow from caving in

Stress- that is one thing every college students understand. Especially finals week, you feel stretched thing between the end of the year, finals, friends and anything else that is going on in your life. You feel as if another thing happens you won’t be able to go on.

Do you ever feel already buried deep
Six feet under scream
But no one seems to hear a thing

Sometimes we can’t help but feel alone and sad in the world. We all feel it and we all feel like no one around us can help or will be willing to listen.

Do you know that there’ still a chance for you
‘Cause there’s a spark in you
You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the fourth of July
‘Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on show ‘em what your worth
Make ‘em go “oh, oh, oh!”
As you shop across the sky-y-y

No matter how much we go through and how much we have going on in life we always have a chance to turn things around. We as humans have so much potential. We can do anything. All we have to do is believe in ourselves. Other people will always be better and try to put us down but that doesn’t mean aren't worth anything. We are worth something and we can accomplish anything.

Thank you Katy Perry. For this song. For telling us no matter what and how we feel through out life we are always worth something and we always need to try. We can do anything. So thank you for reminding us.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things.

Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.
