Falling on

Read these words.

When you feel so close to some resolve,
You write the words that you're writing for,
But your courage gets dissolved,
Into what, I don't know.

When you feel that way again,
You have to stop your thinking,
And think of what you're here for,
And let the rest of your feelings go.

And you've got to find your balance,
You've got to realize,
You've got to try to find right before your eyes, oh.
And if you find you've fallen,
And all your grace is gone,
Just scream for me and I'll be what you're falling on, ooh.

When you feel so close to some resolve,
You say the things that you're standing for,
Don't let your courage get dissolved,
'Cause it's then that the fear grows,

And you've got to find your balance,
You've got to realize,
You've got to try to find what's right before your eyes, oh.
And if you find you're fallin',
And all your grace is gone,
Just scream for me and I'll be what you're falling on, ooh.
Woah, woah.

Just give me the word and I will be there,
Just tell me the words that I've been living for,
Just tell me the things that I've been fighting for,
It's do or die, this is either or,
Just give me the word and I will be there.

You've got to find your balance,
You have to realize,
You've got to try to find what's right before your eyes, oh.
And if you find you're fallin',
And all your grace is gone,Just scream for me and I'll be what you're falling on.

You've got to find your balance,
You've got to realize,
You've got to try to find what's right before your eyes, oh.
And if you find you're fallin',
And all your grace is gone,
Just scream for me and I'll be what you're falling on, ooh.

Watch the video


We all have out moments where we start to slip. Perhaps we contemplate not working out. Or we think about having just one spoonful of peanut butter when we're not supposed to. Or we hit the snooze button for a little more sleep instead of waking up to workout. Of we think we'll have just one cheat meal--it won't hurt. Or we skip the cardio after weights because we'd rather just go home. But like the song says, but when you feel that way again, you have to stop your thinking, and think about what you're here for, and let the rest of the feelings go. That's so true. Refocus. Remember what the mission is. But it gets better--you DO have to find your balance. You do HAVE to realize what's right before your eyes. That goal IS right before your eyes. But the minute you succumb to other things, the minute you derail, that goal is one step FURTHER away. Wait...but as the song goes, if you've find you're fallen, and all your grace is gone, just scream for me and I'll be what you've fallen on. That's what I am here for. That's why I am here for Kelly or for anyone else that needs me. I am one text away. One phone call away. One e-mail away. If you need my number so that I can help you find that clarity and get you back on track, let me know and I will give it to you. Or if you don't want me to pick you up, then find another friend. Find someone that you can rely on to help you out of the rut--that can encourage you to go to the gym, that can talk you out of that bad food, that can lift your spirits when you are down. Fall on them. Fall on me. But don't fall down. Don't' fall off the wagon. If you're having a moment where you REALLY want to cheat, text/call your friend. Find clarity before it's too late! As Finger Eleven says, just give me the word and I'll be there. I'll be there for YOU. It's do or die, it's either or. It's either meet your goals, it's either kick ass OR it's failure, it's pushing yourself further from your goals. We don't need this! We can push forward. We can succeed.

Find someone to fall on.

I LOVE this song. This song gets me through my workouts. I like the beat but I LOVE the words. Now you know why....

Find your balance.
Realize--it's right before your eyes.
But if you do fall, I am here to pick you up again....

As I was doing my seated Leg Press today I was thinking of you. I'm no way NEAR what you can Leg Press, but you inspire me to push hard.

Kick ass girlie!

Hugs!
