Hey there! Happy 4th of July!! I hope you're doing something really fun with your family today! Today is the first day of my new semi-weekly music series. I'll be sharing music I love, songs that have made their way into my sessions or just other randomness. =) I like seeing what other people are listening to and wanted to join the fun!
Today's song is one of my favorite songs by Hot Water Music and one that I'm always trying to keep in mind. I like putting two lines together as a little life mantra:
"Lead a life the best we know Live your heart and never follow"
Easier said than done, but it's something that I believe wholeheartedly. They mean so much to me right now as I'm thinking of restructuring my photography businesses and figuring out how best to create my life. =) I foresee a new tattoo in my future!
"We couldn't help but cry, when we were brought to life. Drug out by the cold, slapped a few times, to the rhythm in the flickering lights with tightly closed sore eyes. We grow, to either be or hate what's cold and that's when we learn to know.
To run Don't follow Lead a life the best we know.
It's hard to find your way through the darkness, it's hard to know what to believe. But if you live by your heart and value the love that you find, Then you have all you need.
To run Don't follow Lead a life the best you know.
Let's talk about an independent stand. Let's talk about free form thought. It's not about living under command. So don't get caught.
I get knocked down and then I get back up. Live your heart and never follow. I'll speak my mind, you can't cover it up. Live your heart and never follow. I'm picking up the pieces as they break and fall. Live your heart and never follow. I'll take on every day standing up, standing tall. Live your heart and never follow.
Live your heart and never follow. Live your heart and never follow. Live your heart and never follow."
