I am going to do something a bit different this week and talk to you about a video I really love, and which reminds me of a time from childhood to my teenage years when I was a confident and outgoing person. I don’t know really where my confidence went but it disappeared in early adulthood and I was left with anxiety and panic but I really want to rule the world again.
The video is the Grammy Award winning song “ Viva la Vida ” and also known as ‘ When I ruled the world “. It’s a very stirring song and a little bit sad as well. I would like you to listen to it but don’t examine every word but just enjoy the song. When I first heard it I thought immediately of my young days when I was a confident young lady who loved to mix and had many friends. I became an anxious and reserved person who preferred her own company or only those of some close friends and family.
The lines -
“People couldn’t believe what I’d become,Revolutionaries wait for my head on a silver plate,just a puppet on a lonely string”
These lines of the song are exactly how I thought of myself and what others thought of me, and all the while they were wondering where the confident girl went, and me in turn was thinking that they were just waiting for me to fail, panic or retreat. The song is also uplifting to me and makes me want to rise up and sing loudly out the window, especially in the OH OH OH part. I wish I could go back to those days when I ruled the world.
