You Gotta Be

I heard this song yesterday when I was driving to the gym and it brought me bitter sweet memories. I LOVE this song’s lyrics since they’re something I try to live by. It represents the inner strength that we all should strive to have.

This song brought my spirits up many times when I needed it the most. Without going into details (I don’t want to bore ya’ll!!), for many years, part of my life was very empty. I felt like I was living somebody else’s life and hoped that someday I would wake up anywhere except where I was. I didn’t know how to get out of the situation I was trapped in. However, this is one of the songs that when I listened to it, I would see the light at the end of the tunnel. It took me YEARS to be able to GET to the light at the end of the tunnel but I did!

I knew then how I wanted my life to be and started working towards that… one step at the time… slowly but surely. I can’t say that my life is perfect right now but I’m pretty darn happy! I really appreciate & love all of the people in my life and I’m so glad I learned to stay away from the toxic people (we all have one of those right?) or at least not let them get to me anymore.

Anybody can learn from these words so I hope you enjoy going back to memory lane to 1994!
