If you fall, dust if off, you can live your life.

>>>>15 queens-Beyonce, Rihanna, Fergie, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Carrie Underwood, Miley Cyrus, Sheryl Crow, Leona Lewis, Keyshia Cole, Leeann Rimes, Natasha Beddingfield, Ciara, Melissa Etheridge and Ashanti-collaborated for the song “Just Stand Up”. This song was produced as a charitable single for the Stand Up to Cancer organization, but I think relates to many other aspects of life. It came on my iPod playlist the other day and it’s been in my head ever since. These lyrics were a pick-me-up when I was feeling a little down in the dumps and might make your day (week, month, year…you know what I mean) a little brighter.

Everything will be alright again
alright again, alright again

The heart is stronger than you think
like it could go through anything
and even when you think it can’t
It finds a way to still push on though

Sometimes you want to run away
Don’t got the patience for the pain
And if you don’t believe it look into your heart
The beat goes on

I’m telling you things get better through whatever
If you fall, dust it off, don’t let up
Don’t you know you can go be your own miracle
You need to know..

If the mind keeps thinking you’ve had enough
but the heart keeps telling you don’t give up
who are we to be questioning, wondering what is what?
Don’t give up, through it all, just stand up

Ooh, it’s like we all had better days
Problems getting all up in your face
Just because you go through it
Don’t mean it got to take control, no

You don’t got to find no hiding place
Because the heart can beat the hate
Don’t want to let the mind keep playing you
Saying you can’t go on

Don’t give up, through it all, just stand up
Through it all, just stand up

You don’t got to be a prisoner in your mind
If you fall, dust it off, you can live your life
Yeah, let your heart be your guide

You will know there’s a good if you trust the good
Everything will be alright, yeah
Light up the dark, if you follow your heart
And it will get better through whatever

If the mind keeps thinking you’ve had enough
But the heart keeps telling you don’t give up
Who are we to be questioning, wondering what is what?
Don’t give up, through it all, just stand up

You got in you, find it within
You got in now, find it within now
Find it within you, find it within
Through it all, just stand up

>>>This is something we all should not just talk about but do. We absolutely, positively, can’t control every single situation or aspect of life, but we can choose to proactively pursue what we want to change. This song is just a faaaab reminder! I also LOVED the Stand Up to Cancer magazine they have on their website. Seriously, check it out! If you’re interested in donating to the Stand Up to Cancer organization, click here. Have a great week, xx.
