Brave

So this morning I was cleaning the apartment and Matt was in the livingroom and he called my name to come out for a minute. So he pauses the TV and puts it back to a song that I have fallen in love with and he wanted to share the music video.

It gets better…. So the next song that comes on Matt goes in a trance. I love it because the words speak so true. I wanted to post the actual words because I want you to read them and hopefully they speak to you.

You can be amazing
You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
You can be the outcast
Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love
Or you can start speaking up
Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do
And they settle ‘neath your skin
Kept on the inside and no sunlight
Sometimes a shadow wins
But I wonder what would happen if you

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

Everybody’s been there, everybody’s been stared down
By the enemy
Fallen for the fear and done some disappearing
Bow down to the mighty
Don’t run, stop holding your tongue
Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is

Innocence, your history of silence
Won’t do you any good
Did you think it would?
Let your words be anything but empty
Why don’t you tell them the truth?

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I know that we all could use to be a little brave. As a kid, we inspired ourselves daily. We didn’t care what the world thought about us. Kids run, sing, dance a fool and didn’t need approval because deep down they know how amazing they are.

The older we get the more pressure there is to compare yourself. You judge and measure your life, job, relationships etc… against others you know and see. When you see that others have the things you do, you stop appreciating those things and you suddenly want more.

So I am watching this “Brave” video with Matt and there was such a serious message yet I was laughing. Laughing because I knew the reason Matt was so caught up in it was because he was learning new dance moves. He is such a goof and his dancing is a in sync with his personality which is _________ (I will let you fill in the blank by watching this video).

Another reason is because I love to dance and sing. I am sure people (not to mention any names DANIEL) have embarrassing videos of me being…..me.

 

I hope this video inspired you to be a bit more brave and to dance. I am sure in private Matt will watch that video over and over so that he can learn the new moves (yes he dances THAT classy) and I will be sure to share any footage I get.

Off to dance……
