TMT: Motivate Me
When I saw this week’s mixtape theme, I immediately thought “Workout” but you know, sometimes I need motivation for LIFE. More than just songs to cheer me up, sometimes I need songs that motivate me to keep going, to move past that obstacle in my path, to rise above my circumstances. I can be in a good mood and still need inspiration. I decided to combine them. Not only will these songs inspire me but they make me move too!
Everybody’s been down Hit the bottom, hit the ground Oh, you’re not alone Just take a breath, don’t forget Hang on to His promises He wants You to know
Welcome misfits, orphans, all The ones who feel they don’t belong You were made to rock, so stand up tall Go rock the world and prove them wrong
When life won’t play along And right keeps going wrong And I can’t seem to find my way I know where I am found So I won’t let it drag me down Oh, I’ll keep dancing anyway
New start in the end There is a New heart under there Beneath these New parts everywhere It is a new, new, new, new start
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together
I know it’s hard, know it’s hard, To remember sometimes, But you gotta keep your head up, oh, And you can let your hair down, eh.
And in conclusion, I offer you one last bonus track, you know because sometimes the words do fail me and the blank page just stares:
Staring at the blank page before you Open up the dirty window Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
And that’s another Twisted Mixtape Tuesday!
