STAND UP FOR YOUR DREAMS

I really love music! I especially love songs with a message of motivation. I wanted to share one of my favorites by Rascal Flatts. Songs like these help me keep my chin up when things don’t go exactly as planned. As a writer, I get to deal with lots of rejection in the form of emails, letters, etc. but I've decided that with every rejection, I'm one more closer to my goal of publishing my best-selling novel.
With that attitude I've had some great successes that I'm going to be featuring soon.

Some things that I want to write, others might not feel as strongly about, but I’m going to write them anyway because that’s who I am and that’s what I stand for. So for anyone out there trying to achieve a dream in the face of difficulty, this one’s for you!

Here’s the lyrics to the song:
STAND

You feel like a candle in a hurricane
Just like a picture with a broken frame
Alone and helpless
Like you've lost your fight
But you'll be alright, you’ll be alright

Chorus:
Cause when push comes to shove
You taste what you're made of
You might bend, till you break
Cause its all you can take
On your knees you look up
Decide you've had enough
You get mad you get strong
Wipe your hands shake it off
Then you Stand, Then you stand

Life's like a novel
With the end ripped out
The edge of a canyon
With only one way down
Take what you're given before its gone
Start holding on, keep holding on

Chorus:
Cause when push comes to shove
You taste what you're made of
You might bend, till you break
Cause its all you can take
On your knees you look up
Decide you've had enough
You get mad you get strong
Wipe your hands shake it off
Then you Stand, Then you stand

Every time you get up
And get back in the race
One more small piece of you
Starts to fall into place
Ooohhh

Cause when push comes to shove
You taste what you're made of
You might bend, till you break
Cause its all you can take
On your knees you look up
Decide you've had enough
You get mad you get strong
Wipe your hands shake it off
Then you Stand, Then you stand

Here’s the link to the video at CMT. It isn’t the most fantastic music video ever done, but at the end I really like how they show people who they’ve featured throughout the video trying to accomplish something with these words.
PASSION
DETERMINATION
COURAGE
GRACE
DESIRE
EXPRESSION
