Thrusday's Thoughts

She says we've got to hold on to what we've got
cause it doesn't make a difference
If we make it or not
Weve got each other and that's a lot
For love - well give it a shot

Whooah, were half way there
Livin' on a prayer
Take my hand and well make it - I swear
Livin' on a prayer

Last night we played rock band with 2 awesome friends. We ate burgers, roasted mallows in the backyard, and rocked HARD. It was an overload of fun. One of my favorite songs on Rock Band 2 is Bon Jovi's Livin' On a Prayer. If you read the lyrics I posted you can probably apply it to yourself as well. Steven and I have come onto hard times before in our marriage (nothing alarming or scary but still hard). Things have been tight and stress levels have been high. When we get discouraged by life I remind Steven (and myself) that we can make anywhere home, that no matter what love endures all things. We have been so blessed during our marriage. We have had some amazing trials that have helped us grow into the awesome people we are now.

Do you have a song that helps you through the tough times? Or one that motivates you?

Don't even get me started on this. I have a list 10 miles long. Unfortunately I am predominately depressed/angry, and that's why all the punk music. It validates my anger at the world (even though I know it's an irrational mental illness-caused emotion, most of the time).

One of my favorite lyrics is by Rise Against:

"We're meant for something more than living just to put food on our plates. I can't help but wonder why should we participate when we've had enough."

Isn't it great how music brings so much into our lives? Who cares what kind of music you listen to as long as it makes your heart happy! Thanks for the lyrics, I really like Rise Against.
