Inspiration

Inspired

Throughout this process I’ve tried to connect with something or someone who inspires me to push myself.  Most of the time those people have reached out to me to send me words of encouragement.  I carry each one of you to my classes and to the kitchen trying to make good decisions.

Saturday night I was driving home from Lawrenceville, NJ visiting a friend from high school.  I had my iPod plugged in, set on shuffle and  Home by Phillip Phillips came on.  I listened to every single word that played through my speakers and quickly felt incredibly inspired.  It was as if someone knew I needed those words of encouragement at that moment because I was beginning to doubt myself and my progress.

The song reassured me that there are people cheering me on even though they may have forgotten I’m still on this journey.  It reminded me that I am not alone and that the doubt that I have are those “demons that fill me with fear”.  Even though I may mess up one day or one week I know “If I get lost, you can always be found”.  So, I say THANK YOU to Steve Jobs for creating the iPod, to Phillip Phillips and those of you who continue to be my cheerleaders.  You rock!

Home by Phillip Phillips

Hold on, to me as we go

As we roll down this unfamiliar road

And although this wave is stringing us along

Just know you’re not alone

‘Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Settle down, it’ll all be clear

Don’t pay no mind to the demons they fill you with fear

The trouble it might drag you down

If you get lost, you can always be found

Just know you’re not alone

‘Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Settle down, it’ll all be clear

Don’t pay no mind to the demons they fill you with fear

The trouble it might drag you down

If you get lost, you can always be found

Just know you’re not alone

‘Cause I’m going to make this place your home
