Don't Lose Your Way!

My apologies for the lack of posts, my laptop is currently down due to a broken power cord socket, and it's been interfering with my progress. However, that is no excuse. I've acquired a new laptop and I'm ready to start writing again!

I'd like to share the spotlight to another writer who inspired me to make this post. If you want to check out his blog and the post which inspired "Don't Lose Your Way!" please click here.

If you're a recent anime watcher, you've probably heard of Kill la Kill. (Kiru ra Kiru) Yeah, it's general idea may sound farfetched; I mean it's an anime about clothes...but when has anime ever been normal?
However the main focus of this post is not to discuss the anime. It's more about the messages that comes behind it and the saying it's known for. When Ryuko uses her sailor suit to transform we usually hear the one signature phrase. Yup, that's right. "Don't Lose Your Way."
If we listen to the rest of the lyrics of the song, they talk about the bond between Ryuko and Senketsu. (her sailor suit) Yet, this isn't the only thing we can learn from this line.
It's all about how fiction can be related to everyday life. I think that somewhere along the road of life we start losing our way. Some people lose it completely, others hang onto it inside. We're social beings, its only natural as we're human. As we live our lives we're surrounded by the ambitions, opinions, and judgments of others, as well as our own. The effects are up to the individual person.
Have you, readers, lost your way? Was there a dream or goal that you've always wanted to reach? Was there something about yourself that you changed because you wanted to fit in? Are you hiding your true feelings? Maybe you're pretending to be someone you're not. Who knows.
Whatever the reason is...if you're in the midst of losing your way, please listen to these words: Don't Lose Your Way! If you've lost your way, don't worry there's still time. It's never too late to learn, never too late to change. Regain your way! Take hold of your life and aim for what you believe in!
 Don’t lose your way in your mind
We have to be as one
Don’t be afraid my sweetheart
This is the way to be more strong
