Ok it's Thursday and I have no idea what to blog about. But I'm really trying to blog everyday so that I keep y'alls interest.... assuming that you have interest in the first place of course. And then I heard this song "Skyscraper" by Demi Lovato. Now I've never been a huge Demi fan but I really do admire her resilience. She's had many personal struggles that have been made public. I don't know what I'd do if every mistake or every bad day I had was made public. Actually I'm going through something right now that is a bit similar to the extent that...something personal has been made public and it's a very very difficult thing. That being said...I think that it's all about how we rise up after being brought down. This song is just...beautiful. There is no other word to describe it. It's powerful but vulnerable at the same time. Part of the lyrics...
As the smoke clears, I awaken and untangle you from me
Would it make you feel better to watch me while I bleed?
All my windows, still are broken
But I'm standing on my feet
You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I'm made of glass, like I'm made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down I will be rising from the ground
like a skyscraper....
I think it's a song that everyone should listen to and everyone can relate to. So this is my gift to you on this Thursday. Remember...it's not about how you fall...it's how you pick yourself back up.
