I have been experiencing an emotionally difficult time recently. The desire to give up in certain area’s of life has been strong and before I knew it depression had reared it’s ugly head.
Ironically, while watching the movie Zootopia with my boys the other night I heard a song that resonated with me in regards to hardships in life. It is called “Try Everything” by Shakira.
I thought I’d post a portion of it below…
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 wrong
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
Basically, as silly as it sounds, the song sort of breathed new life into me. My boys love it too so we spent much of today blasting it while dancing and singing. Isn’t it great how little motivators can be found everywhere if we just open our eyes to them? I won’t give up. I won’t give in.
