Daily Inspiration: 2015 Theme Song

Daily Inspiration: 2015 Theme Song

Well, this might be a bit mushy for some folk, but it’s powerful for me, so I’m posting it. The song speaks for itself. 2014 was supposed to be my year. It wasn’t, but as they say, you can’t win them all. 2015 brings 30 and who knows what else. All I can do is Carry On.

May I always hear the sound of my feet upon the ground, and the same to you in 2015. Cheers.

DAILY INSPIRATION: Wednesday Battle Cry- Wake Me Up by Avicii

DAILY INSPIRATION: Wednesday Battle Cry- Wake Me Up by Avicii

More than any other day of the week, Wednesday, to me, is the most in need of a battle cry. Think of running a race: at the beginning, you’re pumped and ready to go. At the end, you’re super excited to be done and sprint to the finish. In the middle, though, is where it’s hardest to get motivated to keep going.

Wake Me Up by Avicii is my “get up and go” song today because, not only do the lyrics exemplify a lot of what I’ve been going through lately, but the beat of this song instantly transports me to a place where I’m in a sea of people simultaneously bouncing up and down in time to the music. If you’ve never experienced what that feels like, I highly suggest that you do. It’s epic. For now, however, it’s windows down, volume up!

Daily Inspiration: Thursday War Cry

Daily Inspiration: Thursday War Cry

This is for all you mid-to-late twenty-somethings (and beyond!) out there who are still trying to figure it all out just like me. There are days when we just can’t get up. There are days when we feel like all is lost.

And there are days when we stand up and fight.

This is our battle cry for the day. Stand up, take a second to take in the lyrics, and sing your heart out with me- out loud, in action, or however suits you best.

Cheers to you. Cheers to Fun. Cheers to a brand new day.
