Breakaway

Happy Spring! ❤

Winter in Wisconsin can be SO LONG, so I like to share my cover of “Welcome Sweet Springtime” once spring arrives in celebration of the new season! ❤

I have been outside AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE enjoying the BEAUTIFUL weather. ❤

I LOVE watching all of the beautiful birds that are also celebrating the new season. 🙂

Birds are such beautiful and carefree creatures. It is so freeing to watch them fly. ❤

The song that I wanted to share this week is “Breakaway” by Kelly Clarkson.

Lyrics:

Da-da-da, un, da-da
Da-da-da, un, da-da
Da-da-da, un, da-da-da-da

Da-da-da, un, da-da
Da-da-da, un, da-da
Da-da-da, un, da-da-da-da

Grew up in a small town
And when the rain would fall down
I’d just stare out my window
Dreaming of what could be
And if I’d end up happy
I would pray

Trying hard to reach out
But when I tried to speak out
Felt like no one could hear me
Wanted to belong here
But something felt so wrong here
So I prayed (I would pray)
I could breakaway

I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes ’til I touch the sky
And I’ll make a wish, take a chance, make a change
And breakaway

Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget all the ones that I love
I’ll take a risk, take a chance, make a change
And breakaway

Da-da-da, un, da-da
Da-da-da, un, da-da
Da-da-da, un, da-da-da-da

Wanna feel the warm breeze
Sleep under a palm tree
Feel the rush of the ocean
Get onboard a fast train
Travel on a jet plane, far away (I will)
And breakaway

I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes til’ I touch the sky
And I’ll make a wish, take a chance, make a change
And breakaway

Out of the darkness and into the sun
I won’t forget all the ones that I love
I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change
And breakaway

Buildings with a hundred floors
Swinging around revolving doors
Maybe I don’t know where they’ll take me, but
Gotta keep moving on, moving on
Fly away, breakaway

I’ll spread my wings
And I’ll learn how to fly
Though it’s not easy to tell you goodbye
I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change
And breakaway

Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget the place I come from
I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change
And breakaway

Breakaway
Breakaway

This song is INCREDIBLY inspiring! What have you really wanted to do but have not because something or someone seems to be holding you back?

When will you have the courage to follow through with your goal?

Aside from this song being inspiring, it is also really special to me.

My grandfather was my number one fan. ❤ When my grandfather’s health was severely fading, I did an acoustic show for him in his living room. One of the songs that I performed for him was “Breakaway.”

I remember the following lines from the song being really hard for me to perform for him:

I’ll spread my wings
And I’ll learn how to fly
Though it’s not easy to tell you goodbye
.

I didn’t want to have to say goodbye to such an AMAZING human being, but I knew that I had to and that I was going to have to live my life without him.

I miss him every day, but I still feel his love, especially each time I play my guitar. ❤

I hope that this week’s song inspires you and that you can use this new season as an opportunity to do something you have been waiting to do. ❤

It’s a new season, and it can also be time for a NEW YOU! 🙂

Stay well! ❤
