My Lyfestyle Through Lyrics

Born To Try


“You’ve got to make choices. Be wrong or right. Sometimes you’ve got to sacrifice the things you like” by Delta Goodrem
Another year is about to end and another one will begin. Looking back, it’s easy to think and say that I regret this and I regret that. I don’t have any regrets, so you won’t hear me ever utter a sentence saying that I regret saying or doing something. For years I lived a life afraid of what others thought about what I did, what I said and what I wore. I lived life according to what others thought best. And for years I didn’t try to do anything to change that. Well… I began trying. And I began surrounding myself with people who embraced and supported my efforts of trying; trying anything new, positive, creative and innovative. Where has it gotten me? There’s been a bit of an awakening that has occurred within these last 2 years, to say the least. My friends and family members who like to stay within the lines and rules of society’s definition of  “normal” think I’m crazy because they thought I had it made. My parents think I’ve opened a can of worms. Little do people know… and little will always be what they know. I’m trying new things. I’m encouraging my son to do the same in the smallest and biggest of ways. I’m also sharing peaceful private moments with someone special that I ordinarily have been selfish about sharing with anyone, family or friend. I like my peace, but this new philosophy of “trying” is giving me the courage to share a private side of my emotions and mind I hate sharing with others. He calms me. He doesn’t even have to say anything. In fact, it’s usually in his presence, in his silence that I’m most calm. Odd? I don’t care, but I enjoy that kind of peace. I’m keeping an open mind about what cards I play with the hand I’ve been dealt and I’m okay with that because I’m at peace with things thus far. I pray this new year, and the years to come are prosperous in all aspects of my life because whether they are or aren’t, I’ll continue trying.

“Born To Try” as performed by Stan Walker and Delta Goodrem 

Doing everything that I believe in
Going by the rules that I’ve been taught
More understanding of what’s around me
And protected from the walls of loveAll that you see is me
And all I truly believeThat I was born to try
I’ve learned to love
Be understanding
And believe in life
But you’ve got to make choices
Be wrong or right
Sometimes you’ve got to sacrifice the things you like

But I was born to try

No point in talking what you should have been
And regretting the things that went on
Life’s full of mistakes, destinies and fate
Remove the clouds look at the bigger picture

And all that you see is me
And all I truly believe

That I was born to try
I’ve learned to love
Be understanding
And believe in life
But you’ve got to make choices
Be wrong or right
Sometimes you’ve got to sacrifice the things you like

But I was born to try

All that you see is me
All I truly believe
All that you see is me
And all I truly believe

That I was born to try

I’ve learned to love
Be understanding
And believe in life
But you’ve got to make choices
Be wrong or right
Sometimes you’ve got to sacrifice the things you like

But I was born to try

But you’ve got to make choices
Be wrong or right
Sometimes you’ve got to sacrifice the things you like

But I was born to try

👂🏽👂🏽🔊🔊TURN UP THE VOLUME and LISTEN CAREFULLY🔊🔊👂🏽👂🏽 #whenmommakesthreats Mom: If she don’t hit this ball,Tulua...she’s not going tomorrow... Me: 👀...🙌🏾 Looks like my Homerun Hitter competes today for track in the Rock Island Invite! 😝It’s not impossible to do 2 spring sports. My sophomore thrower @a.brieezy loves both #softball and #trackandfield. It’s a busy season for her and even though she’s with me as a #thrower, I design workouts on the track and in the weight room to benefit her for softball as well. Lots of powerlifting, isolation work, core circuits and especially those wonderful sprint workouts translate into the #shotput and #discus ring as well as on the softball field. Her softball coaches and our AD Dan Vosnos have been super supportive! #sports #GoVikings #hfvikings #sport #ihsa #ncaa #winnerwinnerchickendinner @softball.lifestyle101 @softball.my.love @softballposts @softball_of_insta @usasoftball @lsusoftball @texas_softball @uclasoftball
