The Stubborn Australian knows how much I enjoy these 3 day – 3 quote challenges and nominated me once again. However, rather than just listing me with a link he decided to call me out a bit with an added requirement.
My Journey to Imperfection – Now I have a challenge for you, since you like changing things up a bit, Dr Seuss was too easy. How about you do a quote/lyric from songs you like that make an impact on your life 😛
Well, I could NOT pass this up – So in the words of Barney Stinson. . .
So first, the RULES:
- Thank the person who nominated you – Thank you Stubborn Australian!!
- Post 1 quote (song lyric) each day for 3 days
- Nominate 3 people
- Ask all bloggers to buy you books and coffee
Today’s song lyric is from a song that came out a few years ago and really spoke to me. This song has become like an anthem to me in the journey I am on right now and I know I’m not the only who has adopted this song for their life.
The song is “Try” by Colbie Caillat – to watch the official video and hear the entire song you can click HERE. I warn you though – every time I watch this I end up crying, so maybe grab some tissues.
You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to give it all away (You don’t have to bend until you break)
You just have to get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thing
That is the chorus and it inspires me each time I hear it. And then one other part of the song really speaks to me as well.
Wait a second,
Why should you care what they think of you
When you’re all alone, by yourself, do you like you?
Thank you again for this challenge – I really enjoyed searching my memory and song lyrics for this one.
Now for the nominations – and I want to keep this as a song lyric post OR if you prefer you can do poetry. As usual – feel no obligation if you are not up to playing along at this time.
