day 9: something i do every day.

every day i walk. somewhere. everywhere. nowhere special. but i’m moving from one place to the next. and my picture of me walking got me thinking about a favorite song of my love’s. it’s a song about continuing to walk, never giving up, pressing onward & forward, having hope. and right now, i’ve got it on repeat. i just keep staring at the lyrics. believing that what he’s singing is true. hoping. remembering to just keep on walking…

I was aiming for the sky,
ended up flat on the ground
But once again the sun is rising,
I better keep on walking
Keep on walking

I have a long road ahead of me
It’s cloudy and dark it’s hard to see
Will I ever get through to the end?
Been down this sling so many times before
And I told myself I would do it no more
Now I’m back on the same road again

I was aiming for the sky,
ended up flat on the ground
But once again the sun is rising,
I better keep on walking
Keep on walking

I was aiming for the sky,
ended up flat on the ground
But once again the sun is rising,
I better keep on walking
Keep on walking

There’s some twists and turns I’ve gotta clear
But when I’m done the end will soon appear
I can leave my troubles behind

I was aiming for the sky,
ended up flat on the ground
But once again the sun is rising,
I better keep on walking
Keep on walking

I never stopped believing
I know what I should do,
just let the light guide me through

I was aiming for the sky,
ended up flat on the ground
But once again the sun is rising,
I better keep on walking
Keep on walking

dear readers, it’s tough some days, isn’t it? really tough. and lonely. and scary. and uncertain. and confusing. but, we have the strength inside us to keep going. we have to. love is the goal and the motivation, and it’s also what gets us through. because love is always by our side. and in the end, love always wins. it’s true. i believe it.

so i’m just gonna keep on walking.

let’ walk together. peace.
