#livelikeawarrior

Thinking about continuing with my “Letting Go” series has seriously been hurting my brain. Have you ever had something that just consumes your mind? As much as you try, you just can’t get past it? For some it’s worry, for me it is typically a pursuit to figure something out or answer a question that is bugging me. This is how I am with most things. Some call it obsession. I call it passion or better yet determination. When I am intrigued by something, I don’t let go until I have what I need. I think my spirit animal is a boa constrictor which pains me because I am absolutely terrified of snakes.

My determination has led to many successes because I simply won’t give- up until I achieve what I am after, but it has also taken me down dark windy roads on missions for truth and justice only to be disappointed when I don’t get the answers that I need. It’s a blessing, it’s a curse and it’s exhausting. I have been struggling with what I was going to write on this topic for awhile because I don’t have the answers. For anyone who understands this right now, having someone tell you to just “Let it Go” is hurtful. If it was that easy, you would have already done that. So, instead of telling you to “Let it Go”, I will suggest that you “Live Like a Warrior”.

I was driving home from work this week thinking about this post and a song caught my ear. It was Matisyahu’s “Live Like a Warrior”. It was perfect, and Live Like a Warrior has become my new mantra for all things in life….a G rated version of “be a badass bitch”. I’ll let you look up the full lyrics because I am a little uneasy with copyright violations and correct citation methods, but here’s to hoping that Google didn’t let me down.

I tend to gravitate towards the second verse which is below. I hope this helps you as it has helped me. (I highly recommend listening to the song as well)

“Some things you should let go, they’re only gonna pull you down,

Just like weight on your shoulder they are only gonna make you drown

We all swing high, we all swing low,

We all got secrets people don’t know

We all got dreams we can’t let go,

We want to brave, Don’t be afraid

Today, today, live like you wanna,

Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire, in a fire, in a fire,

Fight like a Warrior, Today, today, live like you wanna,

Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire, in a fire, in a fire,

Live like a Warrior” 

Songwriters: STEIN, VINCENT / KNIGHT, JACK / MILLER, MATTHEW / SCHERER, KONSTANTIN / GRIGG, ALLAN / WITHERS, KORI
