What If… (Inspired by La La Land)

What If… (Inspired by La La Land)

In celebration of finishing my exams yesterday I went to go see La La Land.  I don’t want to give any spoilers because it did just come out, but it really got my thinking about life.  The songs were absolutely fantastic, it was beautifully choreographed and the ending personally left me with one resounding message.  You don’t want to look back on your life with regret and think “what if”.

Time is Running Out

Right now I like the direction my life is going in.  I’ve got this blog, Uni, and some amazing friends.  I’m really growing as a person and learning how to manage my feelings.  However, sometimes I forget that time is fleeting and every day we slowly grow older.  My years so far have been a bit of a blur. 13 years ago I was a tiny 6 year old saying “maybe one day I’ll publish a book”.  Now, here I am at 19, still saying the same thing.  La La Land not only left me in awe, wishing I was that talented, but left me with a new lease on life, if you will.

No “What If” Over Here!

I want to live my life to the fullest. In 20/30/50 years time, I want to know that I at least tempted everything that I wanted to do.  I want to sing more in front of people, try new things, meet new people, make a difference, write a book, put myself out there… The list goes on.  I have a countless list of things that will make my life more fulfilling.  But, none of it will be done unless I do it myself.

La La Land reminded me that in life you never get everything that you want.  As well as the fact that you’ll never know what was meant to be until you try.  I’m only 19, I have no idea how my future is going to turn out.  However, I know that I’m going to work as hard as possible to make it amazing can before it’s too late.


Hope you’re working towards what you want to do too,

Lots of love,

Jas xx

    I cannot wait to see La La Land and was interested by your take on it. Being another 13 years older than you I too have those moments of what I want to do and achieve more before getting even older! Being a teacher, I live in half term cycles and it’s amazing how quickly they’re passing. I shall strive to achieve more 💪🏻 So not to have those possible regrets.

    I haven’t watched the movie yet but reading your post made me think that it must be an inspiring one. You are on the right track. I was clueless at 19 and though I learnt all along, I wish I had a blog at 19 😉
    Good luck and you will rock with those lessons.
