A Song A Day: Feb 16th – The Flowing River of Life

16 02 2011

“Don’t care what people say, follow just your own way, don’t give up. If you want then laugh. If you must then cry. Be yourself don’t hide. Just believe in destiny”

That was an extract from the lyrics of my very first song posted on this blog, Return To Innocence by Enigma. I still look at that song as being deeply moving and inspirational. Why should we have to hide away when we really don’t want too? Why should we hide our true feelings and true emotions when deep in our hearts we lust to be true unto ourselves? We only get the one life so make the most of it. Be true to yourself, don’t hold back and be yourself. Seek happy nights to happy days – There are over 7 billion people in this world and each persons life is different. Each person is unique. You are unique. We are all unique, and yet at the same time, we are all the same, we are all human. We are all human.

We all laugh. We all cry. We all have our highs and our lows. Be grateful for what we have and let us appreciate those around us. Don’t hate on those who are different. Appeciate and enjoy the variety of life – isn’t it better that way? People may come, and people may go. Those who are the closest too us can hurt us the most, just as much as they can make us feel amazing. It’s those people who help us through our darkest days, and pick us up from the valleys and carry us to the top of the mountain. You are who you are. Wear your heart on your sleeve and don’t be afraid to let those loved ones around you know exactly how you feel.

If life is just a highway, then the soul is just a car – Enjoy each day. Life is what you make it. Don’t let yourself get down – every cloud has and will have a silver lining. The hard part is finding it, and seeing it. When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone. When you’re sure you’ve had enough of this life, well hang on. Don’t let yourself go, ’cause everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes. Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.

Our lives may not be perfect and we as people may not not be perfect, but don’t let yourself get down. Forget the negatives, and focus on the positives. Savour each momement. Savour the mood. Walk proud knowing that whatever this life throws at us we can handle it. You can handle it. Make the most of the now, because the ‘today’ will soon be tomorrows chip paper. Revel in who and what we are, don’t be ashsamed and hide away. Be yourself, have confidence in yourself. Indulge in our fantasies, hold onto our dreams, for we all need a dream. Take those dreams and make them a reality. Let our souls escape and let us follow our hearts, and chase those dreams.
