Something That Matters



I can officially say it has been forever since I have blogged. Listening to good ol' Lady A today provided the spark to get me writing again!

I love this song, "I Was Here." (I love a lot of Lady Antebellum's music :)) Especially because I have been thinking a lot lately about what matters.

My life has become so busy...even busier than I have ever been before...which causes good time for reflection: if how we spend our time reflects our priorities, are my priorities what I want them to be?

One thought that comes to mind is this quote:
"How we respond in any situation has to make things better, 
not worse....
What ultimately will make this situation and [others] better?" 
Jeffrey R. Holland

Back to the song, one reason I like it so much is that I don't get the vibe of "this is all about me and how I can change the world"...even though it talks about that. I get the vibe of getting pumped up to make sure I am being me, and being the best me every day so I can do something that matters.

What matters? 
When you know that, you find your path.

"I Was Here"
Lady Antebellum

You will notice me
I'll be leaving my mark like initials carved in an old oak tree
You wait and see
Maybe I'll write like Twain wrote
Maybe I'll paint like Van Gogh
Cure the common cold
I don't know but I'm ready start cause I know in my heart

I wanna do something that matters
Say something different
Something that sets the whole world on its ear
I wanna do something better
With the time I've been given
And I wanna try
To touch a few hearts in this life
Leave nothing less
Than something that says "I was here"

I will prove you wrong
If you think I'm all talk, you're in for a shock
Cause this dream's too strong
And before too long

Maybe I'll compose symphonies,
Maybe I'll fight for world peace
Cause I know it's my destiny
To leave more than a trace of myself in this place

I wanna do something that matters
Say something different
Something that sets the whole world on its ear
I wanna do something better
With the time I've been given
And I wanna try
To touch a few hearts in this life
Leave nothing less
Than something that says "I was here"

And I know that I will do more than just pass through this life
I'll leave nothing less than something that says "I was here"

"I was here"
(I was here)
"I was here"
(wanna do something that matters)
(Something that says I was here)
"wanna do something that matters"
(Something that says I was here)
"I was here"
