Living out Loud

Mood: forgiving

This is something I have been pondering for a while. What is the meaning of this phrase? Does it correspond to living your life without regret?

People have their nifty little phrases for tying up life's loose ends. That's the way it goes, Se la vie, Oh well, and so on. These are easy phrases that basically tell you, "Yeah, dude, you're fucked." It also amuses me to hear people say that you should live your life without regrets. I wonder if these people live their lives the way that they preach to others.

I personally know that I have regrets. I have regretted doing lots of dumb things over the years. Credit card debt is one. Royally screwing myself on education is two. Some really bad sex is three. Using alcohol and drugs to the point of not remembering anything and then claiming it was, "A wicked good night." Yeah, those are pretty dumb. I mean, I regret those things I guess only if I could rewind, erase those parts, then still learn the lesson I needed to.

So I've decided to live my life out loud, regrets and all. I kinda think that if you say you don't have any regrets that you are just kidding yourself. What if you could try the above scenario? Then would you have regrets? I think people say this, (and I know I have in the past just not very often) because they say, "I wouldn't be who I am without those judgement errors."

I suggest that we all embrace our faults, no matter what they are. Take them and make them work for you in whatever way you can. Living out loud to me just means living. Live with the thunder and the lightining. Live with the sunshine and rainbows. Live loudly. This is who you are like it or not. You can make minor adjustments along the way, but not huge ones so learn to be who are and decide to like yourself flaws and all. In my opinion, it just makes life a lot easier.

I totally agree with you on this one Red. I like the idea of living your life out loud, although I prefer the phase live in technicolor and dolby surround sound. Basically it means the same shit but I like the flair....
