Fearless

Happy Thursday! 🌞

Here in the U.S., it is Veteran’s Day. I am filled with gratitude for all the veterans I know. ❤ (I have also been honoring the memory of my grandfather and cousin today who were also veterans.)

I also remember that on this day in 2013, I met my goal for funding my album TEMPTATION. I still hold absolute gratitude in my heart for all those people who helped make my lifelong dream come true! ❤

The song that I wanted to share this week is ABSOLUTELY INSPIRING! Hanson (who I’ve definitely blogged about before because I’ve been a Hanson fan since age 11 😂) released a new song called “Fearless.”

Lyrics:

Digging deep, digging up bones
Dirty hands, carrying stones
Don’t give in to the decay
Like a robber to the grave

Reach out, reaching to the top
Been blocked, but you won’t stop
Not
just another cliché
They better get out of your way

If you’re not gonna go home
If you’re gonna make waves

You’ve got to be fearless
But you can be so much more
You could be bold
Breaking the mold
You are what you let yourself be told
You could be fearless

You are the start to the fire
Giving more than is required
Not gonna listen to the pain
That’s why you’re making gains

You won’t be overturned, you can’t be overcome
Blood sweat and tears is all you brought
And you’re giving all you’ve got

If you’re not gonna go home
If you’re gonna make waves

You’ve got to be fearless
But you can be so much more
You could be bold
Breaking the mold
You are what you let yourself be told
You can be fearless
But you could be some much more

You can be brave, breaking the chains
You are what you let yourself become
You can be fearless

I have to say that this is my FAVORITE song that Hanson has ever released! 🧡 I LOVE the lyrics. I LOVE the melody. I LOVE all the instruments. I just LOVE it! 😁

I regularly write about how it’s so important to live your life true to yourself and have the courage to make your dreams a reality, and this song is the PERFECT theme song for that!💙

My grandfather and cousin that I mentioned earlier in this post lived their lives fearlessly and that fearlessness is completely inspiring. Can you think of someone in your life who lives fearlessly and inspires you?

I had so many fears about making an album…and as I’ve shared in the past, I even quit music for a while because of my fears. 😟

Eventually, I mustered the courage to share my love for music, and I feel incredibly grateful that I released my first album, have had the inspiration to work on another album, have been able to perform for others, and have been able to share my love for music every week with you on my blog! ❤

There are so many unknowns right now in this world, but I challenge you to live fearlessly authentically. 💚
