Kill your Heroes by AWOLNATION
I really feel like this song is saying that we all need to stop judging ourselves to others. That we need to stop letting the fears of not being good enough or reaching the status that we feel the heroes have stop us from even trying. Because then we will just stop trying. So instead, we need to become our own hero. That no matter what happens, those that are around you will love you. So, try because the fear that you are going to fail or that people will judge you is just going to stop you from getting anywhere or reaching any goals. Don't be afraid to fly, to really let yourself go for your dreams and goals. You can do it and you are loved. Stop comparing yourself to the heroes and let yourself fly. I tend to find a lot of songs pretty inspirational and I really feel like this one was super inspirational for me. What are your thoughts about these lyrics? I sure hope it really means what I have taken from them and not something horrible. haha
Also, this weekend was General Conference, which was AMAZING as usual. I loved every single talk. I even got the chance to go to the Saturday Afternoon session with Thomas and his brother. Its always great being inside the conference center even if I was up really high. Something that is amazing about conference is each of us get a different message, the one that we really need to hear. Even though we are all listening to the same talks, the spirit really talks to us individually. I love that so much.
I really feel like the message that I got from it is that I need to confidently declare that I am a Mormon and that I love it. I need to be a disciple of Christ in all that I do. I need to not let the fears of being judged or criticized decide how I act because as long as I am acting as Christ would I am doing what is right. So, here I am declaring it just as Sister Dibb did, "I am a Mormon. I know it, I live it and I love it." Yes, I love that I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am trying so hard to live my life the way that Christ would. I hope that I can be better to find ways that I serve others more. Because that is something that brings me true joy, knowing that I can be a tool in our Heavenly Fathers hands and help him help all of His other Children.
This weekend was just one of those weekends where it really makes you think about your life and how you can improve. I guess every conference weekend is that way but that is what is so great. I know that every six months, I will have some serious changing in my life that makes it better.
Anyway, I love you all and share your thoughts on my new song that I am obsessed with!
