It’s My Life

When I was growing up, I remember seeing a Bon Jovi music video on Nickelodeon.

I don’t remember why the video was on Nickelodeon—as that channel for kids didn’t typically play music videos. However, I imagine it must have been used in a Nickelodeon movie.

I remember really enjoying the song when I first heard it, and I wanted to share it this week as it as a great reminder about how we should be living our lives.

The song is “It’s My Life.”

Lyrics:

This ain’t a song for the broken-hearted
No silent prayer for faith-departed
And I ain’t gonna be just a face in the crowd
You’re gonna hear my voice when I shout it out loud
It’s my life
It’s now or never
But I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, “I did it my way”
I just want to live while I’m alive
It’s my life
Yeah, this is for the ones who stood their ground
For Tommy and Gina, who never backed down
Tomorrow’s getting harder, make no mistake
Luck ain’t even lucky, got to make your own breaks
It’s my life
And it’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, “I did it my way”
I just want to live while I’m alive
‘Cause it’s my life
Better stand tall when they’re calling you out
Don’t bend, don’t break, baby, don’t back down
It’s my life
And it’s now or never
‘Cause I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, “I did it my way”
I just want to live while I’m alive
And it’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said, “I did it my way”
I just want to live while I’m alive
‘Cause it’s my life

How does the song make you feel?

People will always have opinions about how you should live your life.

Do not let these people affect your choices.

Imagine if the people who tell you how you should live your life instead focused their energy on finding ways to make their own life more fulfilling.

Live each day with no regrets—no matter what others say.

Wishing you well! 💜
