– You Can Be Your Own Spotlight –

So I’m browsing through the new music torrents that showed up on BTJunkie.com today and I come across Patrick Stump.  I’ll first concede to my ignorance that I had no idea who this guy was until I listened to a song.  Former Fall-Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump apparently has a solo album out that I was not aware of.

“They might, try to tell you how to live your life.  But don’t forget it’s your right.  To do whatever you like.  Cause you can be your own spotlight” – Patrick Stump

I’m not a huge fan, but the song I came across really spoke to me.  It’s such a positive message, and although it’s so simple it strikes me as clever.  This life we lead is a headlining show.

We are the main character.
We have our companions and our antagonists.
We have various acts and chapters.

You don’t need to be someone extraordinary, because when it all comes down to it we actually are our own spotlights.  If you decide you want to take the story in a particular direction, make sure you do it for the right reasons.  Never let someone else dictate your priorities.

There will be obstacles and assists.
There will be victories and failures.
There will be happiness and anguish.

In the end, it’s all about who we are and what we do with the time we have here.
