This Is Your Life

Tuesday, June 05, 2012

When I have a really rough run, I end up depending on my tunes pretty heavily to make it through to the end. There is one song that never fails to hit a nerve with me and really push me to that finish line. The lyrics are simply so powerful that I canít help but keep going.

Iíve placed a link to a fan-made YouTube video of the song below, which has the lyrics embedded for you to read as you listen. Take a listen and really think about the words and how you would answer the question in this song.

I feel that I can finally honestly say that I am not yet where I want to be, but I am certainly well on my way to getting there. So, now when I hear this song, I feel proud of myself and hopeful for the future.

It wasnít always this way. The first time I heard this song 7 years ago, I stopped in the middle of my workout and sobbed because I knew deep down what the answer was for me.

Have a listen and read along. Where are you right this very moment? And where do you want to be?

    wow, just listened to this song, have never heard it before, and guess what?? It has just helped me make the biggest decision in my life so far, thank you!! I imagined listening this song in two scenarios, living where I live now or moving abroad, and that has reaffirmed me in my decision that I want to move abroad. Now I am going to make it happen and nobody is going to stop me! thank you so much :)

    Loved this, had heard the song before, but never knew the band or listened closely. Shared the link with the weight loss group I am in on Facebook, know they will get a lot out of it. Thanks for the inspiration! :)

    Music really pushes me. I learned in a psychology class that I am fueled by music. I learn with music, I absorb information with music. I realized too I workout better to music. I have certain songs on my playlist that keep me going. Once you find those few songs that really motivate you, your workouts are easier.
