Confession, most of the time I have songs running in my head. I tend to think and feel in songs. It's the easiest way for me to tap into what I'm feeling or want to say. One of my new favorite songs to sing to myself is "Get Back Up Again" from the movie Trolls. The video is at the end of this post if you want to check it out.
I know, I know, Trolls? Let me explain. My son is in love with the music from this movie. It is all that we play in the house, the car, on my phone, ALL THE TIME! Another confession, I'm not tired of it yet. Most of the music is a blend of new songs that we dance around too and older songs that I'm loving again.
The song "Get Back Up Again" is one of those songs I hope my son will understand and carry the message with him forever. It's a song that reminds me to live this way. Every time I get knocked down, no matter how big or small the punch, I'm getting back up. Because there is nothing getting in my way of being me, my success and living life the way that I want.
This is what I want for not only me and my family, but for all my clients and everyone reading this. When you get knocked down, get back up again. If you have trouble getting back up, ask for a hand to help you. If you don't have time to watch the video here are the lyrics:
I really hope I can do it
'Cause they're all depending on me
I know that I must leave the only home I've ever known
And brave the dangers of the forest
Saving them before they're eaten
I mean, how hard can that be?
Looking up at a sunny sky, so shiny and blue and there's a butterfly
Well, isn't that a super fantastic sign
It's going to be a super fantastic day
It's gonna bring a pocket full of songs that I'm gonna sing
And I'm ready to take on anything
Some super fun surprise around each corner
Just riding on a rainbow, I'm gonna be okay
I'm not giving up today
There's nothing getting in my way
And if you knock knock me over
I will get back up again
If something goes a little wrong
Well you can go ahead and bring it on
'Cause if you knock knock me over, I will get back up again
Whoa oh oh oh, get back up again, whoa oh oh oh oh oh
I'm marching along I got confidence
I'm cooler than a pack of peppermints
And I haven't been this excited since
I can't remember when!
I'm off on this remarkable adventure
Just riding on a rainbow
What if it's all a big mistake
What if it's more than I can take
No I can't think that way 'cause I know that
I'm really really gonna be okay
