Day 2’s blog challenge wants us to talk about a favorite song or lyric and say how it inspires or describes me.
There will always be songs or lyrics that mean something to me but lately I really and truly can relate to Katy Perry’s new song “Roar” and Sara Bareilles’ new song “Brave”. Both of these women’s songs hit home for me.
I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire
Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
For many years I would just sit back and let people get me down, have their opinions or thoughts of me affect me and define me. Over the course of, I’d say 3-4 years, I’ve learned to not let any of that effect me. Trust me I have my days where I will literally break down because these things will make me doubt myself, but I have decided no more. These lines inspire me (or the whole song really) to remind myself that no more. No more people pushing me around. No more of others thoughts and opinions defining me and no more doubting myself.
Everybody’s been there,
Everybody’s been stared down by the enemy
Fallen for the fear
And done some disappearing,
Bow down to the mighty
Don’t run, stop holding your tongue
Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is
I can’t even begin to explain how this song touches my heart. One day my sister, my niece Chloe and I were riding in the car and my sister had this song on. She turned to me and said watch and listen to Chloe. She literally started to sing this song and it was with feeling. She is only 3!! It brought such a smile to my face because whether or not she knows it, she is being a brave little one every single day. Literally has no fear. We have to be that way. No more keeping things in. Speak your mind (obviously respectfully in certain situations) but stand up for yourself. If you don’t, who will. Every single time I hear this song it reminds to be me and no one else.
And last but not least this song will forever be a favorite of mine~

Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
Yes I will admit, I love to open my sunroof on a beautiful sunny day and blast this song, all LC and all, and believe that my today is where my book begins.
What are some of your favorite lyrics and what do they mean for you??
