So for whatever reason this week has been really hard for me. I could sit here and list out the reasons, but I've decided against that. Instead I'm going to share 3 songs that help me rise above it. They each have a similar message, but each are sung in a different style with different lyrics.
First is Carry On by Fun.

The whole song is great- but it is one that the chorus does a nice job summing it up:
If you're lost and alone
Or you're sinking like a stone
May your past be the sound
Of your feet upon the ground
I love this group because of how genuinely talented they are- though the radio does overplay them a bit.
Second is Carry On by Olivia Holt-
yea song has the same name, but is pretty different- hers is a lot more country. Not bad country- but she does sing with a little big of swing in her voice.
This song is sung a lot more like a parent singing to their little one- which makes sense it was used in the movie Bears- so it's hard to just highlight one part that hits me.
The last is Regina Spektor's 'The Call'
which was used in Prince Caspian
I could go on forever about this song- but I'm not going to today. It may seem out of place here- but it fits in my mind :)
I could link song after song after song- there are so many with the message of just step up and keep going.
It's late though- I'm probably going to go to bed and see if I can get a few hours of sleep :)
