It’s Your Life, Find The Beat

MEGANSWALK - IMG_3941

You know that song… the one you put on repeat for hours, days, months straight. Yep, this is one of mine. I literally get sad when it ends. Partly because I remember the story behind it from a particular movie’s soundtrack and also just because I feel like running, jumping, laughing and spinning all at once when it blares from my speakers. When do you hear a song that provides that much freedom?? That much motivation??? That inspiration?? You feel like you’re standing on top of a mountain and you could jump—– fly. No bigger rush.

My husband laughs at me, knowing how attached I become, how much I love music and the passion I find in the words of a song. I’ll look up the lyrics, watch the music video because I want to understand the story. I mean their songs are messages to others, right? The point of music is to feel, right? The beat- pounding, pulsing or hushed, dulled- it’s all for a reason. It’s a writer’s italicized, underlined, bolded script. It’s there to remind us to FEEL. LIVE. LOVE. BE HAPPY in who you are, or BECOME the happiness you see for yourself. Cliché, yes. But who cares?

Make this day great, move towards tomorrow with purpose. Am I being silly because real life doesn’t always allow us to do this? Sure! lol I have a child to raise, we have bills to pay, days that really stink, work, and that thing called Epilepsy, etc., etc., but for today- some time, whether it’s a minute, an hour, or whatever- remember…

“It’s your heart, it’s alive, it’s pumping blood.”

Happy Friday. :)

The lyrics…

Hey heart on the road again
Moving on, forward
Sticks and stones won’t break our bones
We’re in the car on the highway
It’s a magical feeling that no one’s got a hold
You’re a catalyst to your happiness you know

This is your heart, it’s alive
It’s pumpin’ blood
And it’s your heart, it’s alive
It’s pumpin’ blood

And the whole wide world is whistling
And it’s whistling

Hey, heart on the run again
Driving strong onward
Sticks and stones won’t take it’s course
Got the part in the front seat

It’s the best and worst feeling
Like nothing can go wrong
Yeah you’re the decider of the world
That you will get to know

Cause it’s your heart, it’s alive
It’s pumpin’ blood
And it’s your heart, it’s alive
It’s pumpin’ blood

And the whole wide world is whistling

Hey heart on the road again
On the high way, on the highway
Hey heart on the road again
On the highway, on the highway

Cause it’s your heart, it’s alive
It’s pumpin’ blood
And it’s your heart, it’s alive
It’s pumpin’ blood

And the whole wide world is whistling (Oh, ooh)

It’s whistling (It’s whistling)
It’s whistling (Oh, ooh)
It’s whistling
