A reminder to myself

Back in January (you know, in that previous life), I posted a Journal Question response on a Quote To Live By. Rather than a quote, I posted a song which has lyrics that resonate with me (the music is great too).

With the year we’ve been having, and that I have been having, I need to remind myself of this song. It really does pump me up, help my motivation and get me enthusiastic again.

How is your motivation going this year?

Try Everything
I messed up tonight
I lost another fight
I still mess up but I’ll just start again
I keep falling down
I keep on hitting the ground
I always get up now to see what’s next
Birds don’t just fly
They fall down and get up
Nobody learns without getting it won

I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
Till I reach the end
And then I’ll start again
Though I’m on the lead
I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail
I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
Till I reach the end
And then I’ll start again
No I won’t leave
I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail

Oh oh try everything

Look how far you’ve come
You filled your heart with love
Baby you’ve done enough that cut your breath
Don’t beat yourself up
Don’t need to run so fast
Sometimes we come last but we did our best

I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
Till I reach the end
And then I’ll start again
Though I’m on the lead
I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail
I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
Till I reach the end
And then I’ll start again
No I won’t leave
I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail

I’ll keep on making those new mistakes
I’ll keep on making them every day
Those new mistakes

Oh oh, try everything

  1. I know from experience folks think people who ‘try everything’ are a little odd. But we do tend to solve problems because we try anything.

    Beautiful song.

  2. It has been quite a year, hasn’t it?

  3. Well, let’s just say that your reminder to yourself is a good reminder to me, too! 🙂
