I meannnn . . . I’m only wearing a Bruce Springsteen rocker tee, so it’s only NECESSARY that I throw in one of my favorite lyrics from the doode. Not only is this one of my favorite songs by Springsteen (particularly because the ‘Carlton Dance’ goes perfectly with the beat) but because he makes a friggin’ solid point. You’re not going to get anywhere in life, or even out of bed if you sit around feeling sorry for yourself & crying about it. Get up! Get out! Start a fire! . . . okay not literally, please don’t start a fire cos we are in a drought && that would be bad . . . but start a fire within your soul.Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 presetWe all have a passion right? You may say no, but that just means you haven’t found what you’re passionate about yet, but trust me, it’s in there. It doesn’t matter if your best friend found his/hers when he/she was a wee little lad. . .their life doesn’t define yours. You define yours. You, are simply you. So be you & focus on you!Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 presetHowever, I do have a confession to make . . . I was one of those wee little lads (that is so fun to say, seriously try it & I hope it makes you giggle) that knew what they were passionate about right away. You know when you meet a little one & ask them what they want to be when they grow up & it’s always the most outrageous thing like Batman, or they throw you a curve ball and say garbage man. For me it was always the same thing ever since I could talk. . .I want to be an actress. . .I want to be a singer. . .I want to be a dancer. As a youngster I didn’t have the mental capacity to summarize them all together by saying “I want to be a performer”, but it’s seriously all I have ever wanted to do. Growing up I was in one sport & one sport only. Dance. I asked my Mom why she didn’t sign me up for soccer, baseball, or any other sport for that matter & her answer was, “. . .all you wanted to do was dance”. I’ve held onto my fire ever since & even though it’s hard, tiring, hurtful at times, & everything else negative I could ever say, it’s also my passion. It’s a passion, it’s a fire I can’t let go of & don’t know if I ever will.Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

    Hello from Germany! I´m a huge supporter of your blog and Bruce Springsteen. So I freaked out when I was reading this blog post. You are so right with your “explanations” and selected lyrics about life. The first thought I had was that I must buy this wonderful t-shirt! So I have clicked at the link and looked after the shirt. But I couldn´t find it. I only saw a other shirt with Bruce. But I would prefer to buy the one you wear. So I want to ask if I can buy it somewehere else? I don´t know if you probably buy the shirt in the “real” shop or if they don´t put it online. I would appreciate an answer very much.
    Excuse my English.

    Greetings from Germany. ANNA ♥

      Hi Anna,

      Unfortunately the shirt was either sold online at shopluxclothing.com or in store in Riverside CA. If they are sold out of the shirt online, they will either re-stock, or it is no longer available. I’m sorry I can’t be of more help.

      Have a lovely day & thanks for following us!!
