“This time I will be
Louder than my words
Walk with lessons that
Oh, that I have learned
Show the scars I’ve earned
In the light of day
Shadows will be found
I will hunt them down “
The words above are from one of my favorite songs and every time I hear them I get this catch in my body, they resonate within me. They are powerful words to some, especially the phrase “ this time I will be louder than my words”. How many times have we wished we were that, louder than our words? How many times have we wished our voice was louder than what it was?
Every day each of us walks with lessons learned, some learned the hard way. And every day we live with the choices we made because of those lessons. I walk with mine and with the scars I earned, scars if given a choice I dont know if I would give up. Those lessons and scars make make me who I am. They form our lives, they shape who and what we become, it’s never ending. How many lessons and scars will we earn in our lifetime?
Life isn’t always meant to be easy, and we fight every day whether we realize it or not, we fight for ourselves, our family, each other. We learn to be strong and tough, we learn to be compasionate and have empathy for others. We try to be better than the day before.
When you go through your day think about the lessons you have learned, the scars you have earned. Think about how you want to be heard….
