Believe it Anyway

Sometimes, I need something that I cannot even put into words. Sometimes, I feel something that I cannot express or understand. And, sometimes, I find a song that puts those things into words and expresses those feelings in ways I cannot. Today Martina McBride's songs seem to be doing that for me  :o)




As I headed in to pick up my son, this song came on the radio and I thought, "Yeah. That's how I try to live my life." Things happen in this life that are beyond comprehension. That doesn't mean that this life isn't good. Bad things happen to good people. Good people die young. Unspeakable acts occur and blind eyes are turned. A person you love with all your heart is inexplicably taken from you or has left. You're always living Plan B and starting to believe that dreams don't come true.

Maybe you can relate to the words spoken in this song just as I can, but  don't stop believing that it's all bad, or that the glass will always be half-empty. Just keep filling it...with more dreams, more plans, more love, more hope...and create the future you want!


Anyway performed by Martina McBride

You can spend your whole life building
Something from nothin'
One storm can come and blow it all away
Build it anyway

You can chase a dream that seems so out of reach
And you know it might not ever come your way
Dream it anyway

God is great, but sometimes life ain't good
When I pray it doesn't always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway
I do it anyway

This world's gone crazy and it's hard to believe
That tomorrow will be better than today
Believe it anyway

You can love someone with all your heart
For all the right reasons
In a moment they can choose to walk away
Love 'em anyway

God is great, but sometimes life ain't good
When I pray it doesn't always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway
Yeah, I do it anyway

You can pour your soul out singing a song you believe in
That tomorrow they'll forget you ever sang
Sing it anyway
Yeah, sing it anyway

I sing, I dream
I love
Anyway
