Are you struggling in ways that others can’t possibly understand? Does it seem as though you’ll never get passed this place in your life? Well, holding on for another day, and another chance is exactly where you should start. If an inspirational country song about ‘holding on’ will help you, then go ahead and play and replay Lady Antebellum’s ‘One Day You Will’ over and over. The lyrics deliver a strong message; you can listen to the song featured in the video near the end of this page.
The heartbreaking loss of Robin Williams comes to mind when I hear these lyrics. Thinking about this generous comic genius struggling internally while he gave so much to all of us, makes me cry: I wish we could have returned the laughs and joy to help him the way he helped us. I’m sure his compassionate nature would encourage those struggling today to take these lyrics to heart and simply ‘hold-on’. If only Robin Williams had given it one more day…if only. There’s no doubt that the world is a little less brighter without him.
Get through today, just one day and one step at time.
(Lyrics) You wake up every morning and ask yourself, What am I doing here anyway…
..but down the road the sun is shining…in every cloud there’s a silver lining..
For those suffering from the debilitating disease of depression, or those going through hard times, of course it will take more than a song or talk to get you through, so I hope you’ve sought out or have the capacity to seek out the help or even medical attention you deserve…and yes, you deserve to live a happy life; you are worth it. Even if you’re feeling unloved, remember that you ARE loved. People who don’t even know you, worry about you … people like me, typing this through the cosmos in the hopes that you feel and believe in your own value.
It’s strange for some of us to think that we have something to offer the world with our existence, but the fact is, we do. Each of us has something to contribute to this earth, and often it’s the smallest things that make the biggest difference. In a piece about the secret to life, I offer up a perspective on what our cosmic purpose is … and it boils down to three things you’ve heard many times, love, forgiveness and knowledge.
One very personal example is my journey with a loved one through addiction and how taking it one precious second at a time was how we all got through it. It was the holding-on that kept us moving forward.
During my own hardships I’ve learned that the greatest escape is to step outside of ourselves and give our energy to others in need. In my hour of need, people have stepped out to help me, so I do know how it feels to be both the recipient of a generous act as well as the giver of one. Long ago I discovered that it’s during the act of serving others that we find our own worth and value. Help can come in many forms; offering a hand-up, writing a book to help others, lending an ear to a friend, blogging about your own story, or volunteering your time to a worthy cause … whatever you feel drawn to do.
So whether you’re ready to offer a hand out to someone, which in turn helps yourself or you need a helping hand just remember the art of holding-on, because it’s also part of your painting
(Lyrics) “But down the road the sun is shining, in every cloud there’s a silver lining, Just keep holding on and every heartache makes you stronger, But it won’t be much longer, You’ll find love, You’ll find peace, and the ‘you’ you’re meant to be, I know right now that’s not the way you feel, but one day you will”
If you’re going through tough times listen to the words of this song, and grab onto the tiniest measure of hope – Every day is another chance, and each day, even if it seems miniscule you’re that much closer to the inner peace you deserve.
