Three- Day Lyrical Challenge: Day 3

Hello friends and family. I’m late with this post, but better late than never, they say. Once again I would like to give a shoutout to TASHNEE .V. MAVEE who I got the idea from. Give her blog a read. You won’t be sorry.😊

The Rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you.

2. Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.

3. Nominate three other bloggers each day.

If my life had a theme song, I think the motivational “You Gotta Be” by Des’ ree would be one of my picks. I had to be about two when this song came out. Amazing how songs just stay in your head for years. The lyrics:

“Listen as your day unfolds,

Challenge what the future holds

Try and keep your head up to the sky

Lovers, they may cause you tears

Go ahead release your fears,

Stand up and be counted

Don’t be ashamed to cry

You gotta be

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

All I know, all I know, love will save the day

Herald what your mother said

Read the books your father read

Try to solve the puzzles in your own sweet time

Some may have more cash than you

Others take a different view,

My oh my, heh, hey

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

All I know, all I know, love will save the day

Time asks no questions,

It goes on without you

Leaving you behind if you can’t stand the pace

The world keeps on spinning

Can’t stop it, if you try to

The best part is danger staring you in the face

Remember, listen as your day unfolds

Challenge what the future holds

Try and keep your head up to the sky

Lovers, they may cause you tears

Go ahead release your fears,

My oh my heh, hey, hey

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

All I know, all I know, love will save the day

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

All I know, all I know, love will save the day

This time, I’m just going to invite everyone to participate.

Talk to you all later!

I was born on January 31, 1992. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in December 2015 with a B.S. My major was Communications, with a concentration in Print & Web Journalism. My minor was English, with a concentration in Creative Writing. Writing is my passion. I’m a book lover. I prefer to to be called a Booklion rather than a bookworm. Why- lions are mightier.
My first love is Jesus Christ. I was raised in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. No we are not a cult. We are Christians who worship on Saturday.
I have been stuttering since I was four, but through Christ I have persevered through it and will continue to do so. I’m not thing with Him.
Singing is another passion of mine. God blessed with me with the gift of song, which I am grateful for.
