"Welcome To Wherever You Are"
Maybe we're all different, but we're still the same.
We all got the blood of Eden, running through our veins
I know sometimes it's hard for you to see
You're caught between just who you are and who you wanna be
If you feel alone, and lost and need a friend
Remember every new beginning, is some beginning's end
Welcome to wherever you are
This is your life, you made it this far
Welcome, you gotta believe
That right here right now, you're exactly where you're supposed to be
Welcome, to wherever you are
When everybody's in, and you're left out
And you feel your drowning, in a shadow of a doubt
Everyones a miracle in their own way
Just listen to yourself, not what other people say
When it seems you're lost, alone and feeling down
Remember everybody's different
Just take a look around
Be who you want to, be who you are
Everyone 's a hero, everyone 's a star
When you wanna give-in, and your hearts about to break
Remember that you're perfect
God makes no mistakes
I'm not one to blog lyrics (well frequently anyway) but I can hear myself singing this song to my Daughter someday -- corny, I know.
It's just that this song seems to embrace some of my fundamental beliefs -- being who you are, not following the crowd, doing things in your own way, in your time, on your own terms; staying true to who you are. Knowing that everyone is special and understanding the value of an individual's uniqueness. "Everyone is perfect. God makes no mistakes."
It may be a rough ride, but the ride makes me who I am today.
Welcome to me; I know where I am.
