I grew up listening to Des’ree, I remember my aunt playing her music quite often.
Today I heard this song and it made me smile. The lyrics are really inspiring.
“Listen as your day unfolds, challenge what the future holds.Try and keep your head up to the sky. Lovers, they may cause you tears. Go ahead release your fears, stand up and be counted. Don’t be ashamed to cry.”
The sound of one clapping is the sound of celebration. It’s the sound of achievement, greatness and accomplishment.
It is a glorious sound which travels to the very core. Across the world we clap when we sing and dance, when we congratulate and cheer. Clapping is positive. The sound of one clapping is magnificent, it is happy.
Recently one of my besties Anda sent a song to me and harassed me to listen to it (she loves doing that). As usual, I complained and procrastinated but eventually I got round to listening to it (and as usual I ended up liking it).
She said the song inspired her and well, it inspired me too. It’s just a real feel good tune I guess.
I especially like the song because it urges us to fight for what we believe in and pursue our dreams no matter what anyone thinks! I had to share it 🙂
“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
― Mother Teresa
