Journey of Your Life

 

As I’ve mentioned before, I think there is something special about the way a song can speak to you and seem like it was written about your life.   This weekend, my wife and I were at a Jake Owen concert and he played a song that I had heard before, but this time, he gave it some extra meaning.  Right before he started playing, he talked about how his Dad had beaten cancer and how proud of him he was.  He said the song reminded him of what his Dad went through and how close they are.

This song resonated with me even before knowing that his Dad is a cancer survivor, just as I am.

Every time I hear it, I think of my grandfather and the type of man he was.  I learned so much growing up and working side by side with him.  He was a man of few words, but when he spoke he chose his words wisely and each one left its mark.  I lost my Grandfather earlier this year and I can tell you he is a man that had a huge impact on my life and will never be forgotten.

Thank you Jake for the song and thank you Gramp, for the advice on the Journey of My Life.

I’m a RISER

Music can be so motivating. It’s amazing when you hear a song you can relate to… you listen to every word, turn it up and feel like the song was written about you.

While I don’t personally know Dierks Bentley, I feel like he knows me.  His new song RISER, feels like it was written for me and my journey over the last three years of my life…

“I’m a riser…I’m a get up off the ground, don’t run and hider… pushing comes to shovin’ hey I’m a fighter…When darkness comes to town, I’m a lighter… a get out aliver… out of the fire…SURVIOVOR
I can personally relate to every word above.  It’s been a tough three years, but I’m thankful to be in year four. You truly don’t know how strong you are until you have no choice but to be strong.
Music is a very strong motivator, the right song is inspirational and extremely emotional.  It’s easy to listen to a song… but the special songs are the ones you can feel.
RISER is a song that I feel.  Thank you Dierks.
