Little Miss

Happy Music Monday,

It feels good to be back in the writing mode, hit a bit of a writer’s block and a bit of a mental slump, but I am back.  Today is the perfect day to distract myself as well.  The weather in Nashville was beautiful all weekend long.  I find the weekends, which are gorgeous, fly by way to fast.  I got to enjoy a fun weekend filled with good times, laughter, and memories.  Would enjoy hearing how your weekend was?

So I know I already did a blog on Sugarland in regards to one of their songs this year, but their song “Little Miss,” has been catching my ear over and over at the right moments when I needed to hear it most.

Little miss, I’ll get tough, don’t you worry about me anymore

The third line into the song pulled me right in the first time I heard the song on the radio.   We all get our heartbroken, we sometimes get pushed around, and  more, but every time we stand back up we get stronger.  It is tough in itself to have thick skin and to not let things bother you so we just keep building up more and more each time.

Little miss, I’ll take less when I always give so much more

I know so many people who give, give, and give without ever asking for anything in return.  One of my best friends  has a heart of gold and this little woman is always there for her friends, her family, and is so strong throughout everything.

Little miss, hide your scars

Little miss, who you are is so much more than you like to talk about

Everyone has a past, no one is perfect and we shouldn’t strive to be.  Mistakes and scars are apart of life.  They tell our life story and form who we are.  We learn, we move on, and we don’t always want to look back on the tough parts of the past. We should because they tells us a lot about ourselves, about our resilience.

The lyrics of Sugarland’s song has connected with a vast amount of fans.  Fans were the ones who actually made a personal project and video.   Checkout the inspiration behind the lyrics at Jennifer’s blog, once you finish reading her blog explore Sugarland’s website and listen to all the different connections to Little Miss.  Very inspiring.

As always music lovers, until next time keep those ears entertained.

Stand Up

Happy Monday Music Lovers,

I truly apologize for not posting a blog last week, but have you ever had one of those weeks where things are just crazy as ever?  However, no matter how crazy they were I loved every minute of every day because day by day dreams are coming true.  This week was tough for me to pick a song because so many lyrics were hitting so close to my heart. After deep thought, my song for Music Monday this week is Sugarland’s, “Stand Up,” written by Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush.  Sugarland’s newest album Incredible Machine has true talent flowing out of every song featured on the album.  This song is one of those songs where the lyrics become an anthem and you want to stand up and use your voice.

There’s a comfort

There’s healing

High above the pain and sorrow

Change is coming

Can you feel it?

Calling us into a new tomorrow


We all have days where pain and sorrow seem to consume us, and it is hard to see the brighter moments ahead.  Bad days are meant to teach us to appreciate the days where the sun is shining high and we are living every moment.  If life were always perfect, how would we develop our character?   One of my favorite quotes on character is by an anonymous author; “We have no right to ask when a sorrow comes, why did this happen to me?  Unless, we ask the same for every joy that comes our way.”

When the walls fall all around you

When your hope has turned to dust

Let the sound of love surround you

Beat like a heart in each of us

 

We have all had our heartbroken at some point in our lives.  Whether it be the first grade crush on Jimmy or the one who walked away when you thought they were everything to you. We all have walls built from that moment on to protect our hearts.  One thing we forget in those moments where it seems the world is ending, is how we have so many people in our lives who love us and will be there to help us pick the pieces back up.  This verse reminds me that at times our hope will be shattered, but it can be built back up by remembering all the love.

Won’t you stand up and use your voice?

This is the most powerful line throughout the whole song.  Each and every one of us has a voice and we choose whether or not to use the most powerful tool God gave us.  Reread the verse and just think about it for yourself.   I will leave you with your own thoughts.

As always bloggers, until next time, keep those ears entertained.

Musically,

Chelsea ♫
