I’ve been holding off writing this post for as long as I could, but I feel it cannot wait any longer. Glee will always have a special place in each of our hearts for different reasons. We’ve all grown a little older, a little bolder and a little wiser. Glee has helped many along that journey. I know that we, here at ConfessedGleeks, have been a bit distant for the last couple of seasons but that’s just it: life. We move on, we grow and we rise.
Glee performing Loser Like Me was a big turning point for me. The episode aired just at a point when I needed it most. Everyone starts out as a “loser” in life. In many ways, I am proud to be a loser and I hope that I remain so at heart forever. In order to become something special, you have to start somewhere. We all have the potential to be a star. I just hope that as we all rise, we remember what it was like to be that loser.
Leap for your dreams. Aim for the stars and, even if you miss, you’ll be over the moon. I’ve spent the last two years of my life trying to make the most of each and every day. I can proudly say that I’ve owned every second that this world could give. There have been many highs and many lows. I’ve spent a lot of time recently fighting to get a new business off the ground (shameless plug – check out WaveWall). There have been sleepless nights, there have been tearful days and there have been many, many times when I have wanted to give up. But I haven’t given in. Now things are looking up for me. Keep on keeping on.
Even when it may seem as though the world is pressing down on you and there is no light at the end of the tunnel, remember that there is always someone out there for you. We are young, we are the dreamers, we will fly.
Glee is a world in which the quarterback can make friends with the gay kid. Although the world that we live in may not be as such, we can at least try to see the world not as it is, but as it should be.
Thank you for a wonderful journey over the past few years. Never stop believing.
