Count Your Blessings, Not your Dollars.
Clearly, Ryan Tedder’s narrator interested in pursuits other than the monetary ones. Why get mired down in money? more money, more problems. But it doesn’t literally mean to lay down on your back, in the grass, on a starry night and count the stars dotting the night landscape. Stars = blessings. So count your blessings and remember that which is important in life.
It can be terrifying and thrilling to let go and just live life as a free spirit. You just have to be open and willing to look for those joys in life and embrace them, especially if you lack support from those around you as you navigate these exploits.
What some people may think is the right thing may be the wrong thing for another person. It’s a matter of perception. Sometimes letting go and trying something new, different and unaccepted by the majority or the mainstream is the key to happiness in life. Doing the perceived right thing didn’t make me happy. And as for the notion that “everything that kills me makes feel alive?” Sometimes it’s good to be bad and to not do what is expected and perhaps viewed as bad by someone else. This is a tricky a passage that is open to many and multiple interpretations and that’s just one of mines.
So what do you hear when you count your Stars?
