Show A Little SPARK!

Thursday, January 07, 2010


Nice one from Mary Chapin-Carpenter tonight while doing my ST...got me thinking about the lyrics in a different way. The obvious meaning relates to relationships. But how about our journey toward reclaiming our health?

If losing weight was easy and didn't take any effort, do you think there would be any obesity among us...? Course not! But we here at SparkPeople, we know all about:

The Hard Way

Show a little inspiration, show a little SPARK
And show that things that drew me to you and stole my heart
And tell me something I don't know instead of everything I do
And look at me as if I mean something to you
Our hearts are beating while we sleep, but while we're wide awake
You know the world won't stop, and actions speak louder
Listen to your heart, and what your heart might say
Everything we got, we got the hard way

Show a little passion, baby, show a little style
And show the knack for knowing when and the gift for knowing how
And have a little trust in us when fear obscures the path
You know we got this far, darling, not by luck, but by never turning back
Some will call on destiny, but I just call on faith
That the world won't stop, and ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER
Listen to your heart, to what your heart might say
Everything we got, we got the hard way

Caught up in our little lives, there's not a lot left over
I see what's missing in your eyes; you're searching for that field of clover
So show a little inspiration, show a little spark
Show the world a little light when you show it your heart
We've got two lives, one we're given and THE OTHER ONE WE MAKE
And the world won't stop, and actions speak louder
Listen to your heart, and your heart might say
Everything we got, we got the hard (everything we got, we got the hard way)
Everything we got, we got the hard way

Enjoy the tune...I find it a great one for workouts!

    Life can throw us some curve balls and yes, getting up from a comatose state and pushing myself out this afternoon for a walk wasn't the easiest thing in the world!

    But, actions do speak louder: And I do feel better!!!

    Yay! emoticon

    Thanks for your post!!! emoticon
