{Inspire Me}

Normally I would have a {my moment} post for you on Friday with a moment captured from the week in a photo that captured my heart. Seeing as I dropped my phone in a creek yesterday, effectively destroying everything I wasn't smart enough to save onto the memory card, I don't have several lovely pictures from this last week. But life is what you make of it, right? So I'm going to make honey!

It's been a while since I've posted an {Inspire Me} post, so I thought I'd do that for you. I mean, it's Friday - I think it's a great day of the week to get a little inspiration.

The song inspiring me lately is Brave by Sara Bareilles. I love Sara Bareilles. Her music is on the soundtrack of my life, right alongside Norah Jones, Counting Crows, Dave Matthews Band, Imagine Dragons, Coldplay, The Avett Brothers and so much more.

Brave brings tears to my eyes. The video brings even more. 

Take a lookie listen.


Now, start it again and read the lyrics.

You can be amazing
You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
You can be the outcast
Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love
Or you can start speaking up

Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do
And they settle ‘neath your skin
Kept on the inside and no sunlight
Sometimes a shadow wins
But I wonder what would happen if you

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

Everybody’s been there, everybody’s been stared down
By the enemy
Fallen for the fear and done some disappearing
Bow down to the mighty
Don’t run, stop holding your tongue
Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

Innocence, your history of silence
Won’t do you any good
Did you think it would?
Let your words be anything but empty
Why don’t you tell them the truth?

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you 

******************

Be inspired today. Start speaking up. Show everyone how big your brave is. And for goodness sake, PELASE dance in public. 

Happy Weekend, Lovies!
