Hold On

I am a very lucky woman. I've had my share of ups and downs, but along the way, I've learned from most of those experiences. I've learned to let go of the things I cannot control, and to not dwell on the negative from the past. I've also learned to hold tight to the goodness that surrounds me. While I have many more lessons to learn, I'm okay with where I am in my life right now. In fact, I'm more than okay. I'm great.

But I know people who could use my help. And so, when I sit in my car and hear a song like the one below, and I know there is no way at that moment that I can give them a call or to wrap them up in my arms, the only thing I can do is whisper to the universe to deliver a small miracle.

This is dedicated to you, people.



"Hold On Forever" by Rob Thomas

Another night and here we are again
All our faults laid out ahead
Let it out, then let it right back in
All those voices in your head

And we both know everything, but we can't learn to leave
So I'll tell you what you need

First thing: we make you feel better
Next stop: we pull it all together
I'll keep you warm like a sweater
Take my hand, hold on forever
Just fall apart if you need to
I'm here and I won't leave you now
Don't look down
Hold on forever

Lay down all your troubles end to end
They could reach up to the stars
So many roads, you don't know where you've been
But you still know who you are

And if I seem preoccupied, I'm wondering what to do
So here's my recipe for you

First thing: we make you feel better
Next stop: we pull it all together
I'll keep you warm like a sweater
Take my hand, hold on forever
Just fall apart if you need to
I'm here and I won't leave you now
Don't look down
Hold on forever

And we both know everything, but we can't learn to leave
So I'll tell you what you need

First thing: we make you feel better
Next stop: we pull it all together
I'll keep you warm like a sweater
Take my hand, hold on forever
Just fall apart if you need to
I'm here and I won't leave you now
Don't look down
Hold on forever
Just take my hand; hold on forever
Hold on forever
Just take my hand; hold on forever
