A few days ago I stumbled over a buzzfeed article that had inspirational Drake lyrics. I didn’t think much of it at first but after reading it- I was totally inspired! So, I felt it appropriate to write my own little Drake inspired post!
Here ya go…
1.”I’m just feelin’ like the throne is for the taking,
watch me take it”
Song: I’m on one
I love drake and I love Game of Thrones, so I related the two. I always feel like the throne is for the taking. Never think you don’t have a chance to rule over your own life. Don’t pay attention to the people who say you “cant”-those are the ones who wont ever claim the Iron throne. Khaleesi never sat back and said “nah I don’t think its possible”. Take your iron throne…minus the bloodshed, betrayal, and pillaging of kingdoms.. because i’m pretty sure there’s some felonys in there.
2. “I learned working with the negatives can make for better pictures”
We experience negative situations everyday. The difference between the ones who get stronger and the ones who break under the pressure, is the strong ones learn to work with their “negative” situations. I put it in quotations because I believe “Negative” is subjective depending on your mindset. Learn to use the storm to your advantage, let the storm winds carry the ship. In the bigger picture you’ll be a stronger more adaptable person because of it.
3. “I got fake people showin’ fake love to me”
Song: Fake love
YOU AREN’T DOING IT RIGHT IF THE HATERS AREN’T HATING. There’s ALWAYS gonna be those bitter people who are hating from the bottom because they cant reach you at the top.
They dont want to see you make it faster or better than they are. They will ignore you until you’re “somebody” then they are trying to slide into the bestie position. Let them “look up to you” don’t go down to that level.
4. “It’s tearing up my heart when I’m with you, but when we are apart I feel it too”
Song: Tearin’ up my heart
Okay so that’s N’sync not Drake. Whatever its still relevant 😉 I know hes talking about a relationship here but I relate it to toxic people. You know, those friends who aren’t really friends…who subtweet passive aggressively or post some status directed at you because they’re mad you got more likes on your buisness pages.
They like to steal your thunder and you can never feel good about your accomplishments around them. If your instinct is saying they are toxic energy in your life-they probably are. get rid of em. Bye!
5. “I live for this it isn’t just a hobby like that”
Hey! if youre serious about living your life to the fullest, excelling in business, getting in shape, or whatever it may be You gotta live for those results. Don’t let it be a hobby you pay attention to every now and then.
You get ONE life.
THIS is it.
Do it big and pursue what your heart wants. Unless is something crazy like murder…and other related crimes. I already stated I’m not a fan of felonies… or..killers. In that case. There are some good therapist out there. get you one.
But really now, you cant live your whole life wondering when you’ll be ready to chase your dreams. That’s no way to live! Don’t forget this is YOUR life. Your blank canvas. Create your masterpiece.
6. “I like when money makes a difference but don’t make you different”
Song: From time
One of the worst things to see is a person you care about being completely ruined by money. If you are too money hungry to stay true to yourself- It’ll eventually be your downfall. You cant be so focused on money that you forget the things in life that really matter.
Spending time with family, keeping friendships alive, making sure your marriage is healthy, appreciating the little things in life, expressing gratitude, GIVING TO OTHERS. This is the GOLD in your life!
7. “Where you movin’ I said on to better things”
Song: 10 bands
This one is simply put. Keep moving forward. Look to better things!
Had to end this one on a little Beyonce!
8. “Money don’t make me happy, and a fella cant make me fancy we smiling for a whole ‘nother reason, we smile through all the 4 seasons”
Shining, shining, shining shining.
Keep smiling. In every season of your life, smile through the droughts, the rain, the storms, and the sunshine.
