Hold On

Hold On - 640 x 220

At times, you may be confronted with a series of mounting challenges, as though you are being ganged up on — you may not know who to turn to, what to do, or where to go.  But no matter what, you gotta “Hold On“, as tomorrow carries the promise of another day.  And if you perceive tomorrow as the . . .

First Day of the Rest of Your Life-R

 .  . . you just may find your soul has been awakened and rejuvenated, and thus suddenly able to recognize a sea of opportunities there for the grabbing.

Although the context of this bluesy music video by Alabama Shakes is from the personal perspective of its lead singer, Brittany Howard, its sentiments can be embraced by ANYONE who feels down on their luck . . . because we’ve ALL been there.

Hold On

Bless my heart, bless my soul
I didn’t think I’d make it to 22 years old
There must be someone up above
saying “Come on, Brittany, you got to come on up.”
“You got to hold on . . .
Yeah, you got to hold on . . .”

So, bless my heart and bless yours too
I don’t know where I’m gonna go
Don’t know what I’m gonna do
Well, there must be somebody up above
saying “Come on, Brittany, you got to get back up!”
“You got to hold on . . .
Hey, you got to hold on . . .”

“Yeah! You got to wait!
Yeah! You got to wait!”
But I don’t wanna wait!
No, I don’t wanna wait . . .

So, bless my heart and bless my mind
I got so much I wanna do, I ain’t got much time
So, must be someone up above
saying “Come on baby girl! You got to get back up!”
“You got to hold on . . .
Yeah, you got to hold on . . .”

“Yeah, you got to wait!
Yeah, you got to wait!”
But I don’t wanna wait!
No, I don’t wanna wait!

“You got to hold on . . . (when the world ain’t treatin’ you good)
You got to hold on . . . (when everybody lookin’ at you funny)
You got to hold on . . .
You got to hold on . . .”
