Tune Tuesday #37 – We Always Got the Fight in Us

Three years ago I decided to start living vulnerably so that my friends could fully know all the components that make me who I am.

At first it started with being vulnerable in safe spaces with close friends. Then I was vulnerable with friends and co-workers and now new acquaintances.

Three years ago, I also decided to in inadvertently know the depth of my courage, when I decided to face any personal fear that I encountered. This goal has taught me the most about myself, my strength and courage.

While I have pushed through many fears, some fears are deep rooted or Goliath in size. In some cases, I feel weak or small compared to these fears, but I am moving towards them and breaking them down.

There is no fear that we have that we can not over come.

Fear has taught me the depth of my courage, and courage has taught me that fear is an illusion of the mind. There are fears that we have built up over time, that will take time to break down, but it is not impossible. Patience is necessary to overcome obstacles, when the finish line is no where in sight.

Like the wisdom of the tortoise and the hare “Slow and steady wins the race.”

I came across todays song last week and I absolutely love it, it’s lyrics and the video. Keep pushing toward your new horizons because…

“We always got the fight in us.”

Afterlife by Ingrid Michaelson

 

When the world is breaking down around you
Taking everything that you know
What you didn’t know
Is that we can go forever if we want to
We can live inside of a moment
The one that we own

You and me we got this
You and me we’re beautiful, beautiful

We all, we all, we’re gonna be alright
We got, we got, we always got the fight in us
We all, we all, we’re gonna live tonight
Like there’s no tomorrow ’cause we’re the afterlife

Living like you’re dying isn’t living at all
Give me your cold hands put them on my heart
Raise a glass to everyone who thinks
They’ll never make it through this life
To live a brand-new start

You and me we got this
You and me we’re beautiful, beautiful

We all, we all, we’re gonna be alright
We got, we got, we always got the fight in us
We all, we all, we’re gonna live tonight
Like there’s no tomorrow ’cause we’re the afterlife
‘Cause we’re the afterlife
‘Cause we’re the afterlife

Every time I close my eyes I hear your favorite song
Telling me not to run, not to worry anymore
I can hold on tight to nothing better than the rest
So it’s now or never more

We all, we all, we’re gonna be alright
We got the fight in us
We all, we all, we’re gonna live tonight
Like there’s no tomorrow ’cause we’re the afterlife

We all, we all, we’re gonna be alright
We got, we got, we always got the fight in us
We all, we all, we’re gonna live tonight
Like there’s no tomorrow ’cause we’re the afterlife
‘Cause we’re the afterlife
‘Cause we’re the afterlife

We all, we all, we’re gonna be alright
We got, we got, we always got the fight in us
We all, we all, we’re gonna live tonight
Like there’s no tomorrow ’cause we’re the afterlife
