Waking Up, Now That September Has Ended!

Don't hold onto something if you know it's no longer there.

Wake me up when September ends is a song by the American rock band Green Day. In this song, the lead singer - Billie Joe Armstrong reveals his feelings about his father who died in September of 1982, when Billie was just 10. September also is symbolic of the most dreaded act of terrorism against America - the 9/11. The pain of death, anger, sorrow, losing and dying. The pain that September brought with it.

We all have Septembers in our lives. Past hurt. Pain. Someone who doesn't value your worth. Someone who has angered you and insulted you. A bad boss. A bitchy friend. An unruly colleague. Thoughts of evil. Revenge. Pride. Death. Sickness. A wrong and an abusive relationship. Addiction. A worthless job. Bad attitude. Horrible past. Broken relationships. Ego. A broken heart. Depression. Stress. Tension. 

It is up to us to live in the pain or embrace the new life and the new days in store for us. So many times in life we refuse to let go of these former things, and instead we choose to keeping living and fretting over the things of the past that don't really last. Don't let that be YOU!

Don't let Septembers be all that remain with us. Septembers are important, for the simple fact that it is the ups and downs in life that make us stronger, that make us bolder, that make us who we are and what we are, wherever we are. Septembers shape our lives and our personalities - for the better or for the worse. But remember, there are other hues and colors in lives too! If we keep living in our Septembers, we'll never learn to enjoy the flavors the other months bring in. Stay strong. Because things will get better, it might be stormy now, but it can't rain forever!

Treasure everything and everyone one around us, for we never know who will leave us when.

And I'm waking up, now that September has ended! 'Coz life goes on! You too wake up! SOON! Let go! And remember - You'll never find your prince until you are strong enough to leave the frog!
