I do what it takes

It really is incredible how life unfolds and things begin to fit together – yes both good and bad. People who cross our paths, life experiences, songs on the radio, signs we see on our journey, numbers even. Everything happens for a reason for what we are attracting into our path.

A couple songs have caught my ear these past few weeks. Songs Ive heard before but until now, this week, have truly resonated with my heart and soul.

Beautiful Trauma by P!nk

These tough times they keep coming
Last night I might have messed it up again
Some days like I’m barely breathing
Then after we were high and the love dope died, it was you
The pill I keep taking
The nightmare I’m waking
There’s nothing, no nothing, nothing but you
My perfect rock bottom
My beautiful trauma
My love, my love, my drug, oh
It was when I truly listened to the song and the title. Beautiful Trauma. We’ve ALL experienced trauma in our life. Every single one of us. Regardless of P!nk’s meaning of this song, how is it resonating in my life?! Why all of a sudden is it catching my ear. Maybe, just maybe if in every traumatic experience we looked for even just 1 beautiful thing. It completely transform what has happened. It will never change that moment, or why it happened. However looking back on the many moments in life, it helps bring comfort, closure, forgiveness and love forward.
Whatever It Takes by Imagine Dragons
Falling too fast to prepare for this
Tripping in the world could be dangerous
Everybody circling, it’s vulturous
Negative, nepotist
Everybody waiting for the fall of man
Everybody praying for the end of times
Everybody hoping they could be the one
I was born to run, I was born for this
Whip, whip
Run me like a racehorse
Pull me like a ripcord
Break me down and build me up
I wanna be the slip, slip
Word upon your lip, lip
Letter that you rip, rip
Break me down and build me up
Whatever it takes
‘Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do whatever it takes
‘Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains
Whatever it takes
You take me to the top I’m ready for
Whatever it takes
‘Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do what it takes
Always had a fear of being typical
Looking at my body feeling miserable
Always hanging on to the visual
I wanna be invisible
Looking at my years like a martyrdom
Everybody needs to be a part of ’em
Never be enough, I’m the prodigal son
I was born to run, I was born for this
Wow did his song ever stand out for me. Almost every single lyric of the song. Especially… break me down and build me up – I do what it takes.
For far too long I have allowed the negativity of the past – people and experiences to control my life. Ive been broken down, Ive built myself up – sometimes multiple times.
As part of my wellness company, we have on going training’s which are both business and personal development. Our day yesterday really hit home for me to stop allowing the past experiences, worry, fear, rejection, hurt etc to sneak back in sometimes without even realizing.
To BE more present and actually take control of my life and what I want out of it. To reach for the stars of what I truly want in life.
