A Country Song for Those Who Feel Invisible in this World
Invisible, by Hunter Hayes, a country song about feeling alone, speaks to those who feel they may never be seen, much less reach their potential. These powerful lyrics are especially poignant for young people just starting out in this world, and who, through lack of life experience, make the mistake of comparing themselves to their peers.
You’re Not Invisible, Hear Me Out, There’s so Much More to this Life Than You’re Feeling Now – A Beautiful Lyric in this song
If I had one wish, I would wish that the young souls of the world would know that every one of them matter. Each soul in this world, is an important soul. As a mom of four sons one of the most frustrating and painful things to witness is young people temporarily blinded by the struggles of youth to the point that they allow their own self worth to suffer the consequences. Yes, if I could grant this one wish, I would ask that they see their special gifts, and understand that their contribution to this world can make a difference. Most importantly, that contribution doesn’t have to mean fame and fortune either; it can be as simple as helping to change one life for the better.
One of My Messages to My Sons (Who are not Young Kids Anymore) – I Often Wonder if They Hear this Message?
Many times I’ve explained to the boys that they will find their place when they’ve lived their life for others. In other words, when you’re feeling like you don’t matter, or like life isn’t going your way, or that people annoy you, that they don’t ‘get you’, then the first thing you need to do is go do something for someone else. Remove yourself from the equation. Stop thinking about your own arduous plight in life, and even if it’s in the smallest way, give a hand to another person. It’s hard to believe that the simplest thing to understand is often forgotten; we only find our joy through the long lasting gifts we give, not from the ‘things’ we get.
Get Ready, Because Enlightened Souls are Sometimes Hard to Find
When people make us angry, or we feel uncounted, or not equally measured, one of the things this life has taught most of us who’ve lived numerous decades is that, ‘not everyone you meet will be at their best, or offer their best’. To this I say to the boys, ‘let it go’, say a quiet prayer (based on your faith of choice) for them, and move along. As a famous quote says ‘don’t become that which you rail against‘. No matter how hard it is, offer your best no matter what, and when you have moments where you’ve failed at this, forgive yourself and start fresh the next day.
Hunter Hayes Announces 24 Hour Road Race to End Child Hunger
Before I speak about this incredible mission Hunter Hayes is on, I want any young folks reading this to realize that the difference they make in this world doesn’t have to be ‘global’ in nature. Hunter Hayes has earned a very public platform where he’s able to tackle this extremely worthy cause from an international position. However, remember that any one life you make a difference in, matters; Here are some examples of equally important things you can do; give someone in your family a smile today, clean your room, thank your parents, help a struggling sibling, hug a friend, call an elderly grandparent who you haven’t spoken to in a while, donate your time to a cause if you have time; lend a shoulder to a crying friend…there’s so much more – start with your family.
You can also help Hunter Hayes with this very worthy cause. You can learn more about Hunter’s mission to stop child hunger here. Hunter was very affected when he learned that 1 in 5 American Children don’t know where their next meal is coming from. His goal is to bring awareness to this very serious and sad issue.
