Holiday blues

Posted by jennifer gibson on Saturday, December 29, 2012
After the month long battle of decorating the house, sending out those cards, making cookies, shopping for gifts and a billion other errands while getting that deadline done for work - it's a huge relief once it's over.  Every year it's a like a marathon that builds up the to day of the event with lots of prepping and planning then it's a massive sprint to the end.  It leaves you exhausted but glad once it's over. 

And of course, the holiday blues take over.  In my case, it was from feeling so isolated.  Aside from living in a rural location smack in the middle of nowhere, it seemed as if everyone I knew had plans, were going away on holidays or had someone in their life that made them feel special.  Sometimes being single completely sucked.  Like right now. 

Thankfully Josh Groban pulled me out of that bluesy funk.  Geez Louise, get your mind out of the gutter, it's not what you think.  He just released a brand new song called "Brave" - It was so inspirational that it gave me the strength to move forward.  Granted, it's a tiny step but I'm finding bits of myself again, the real me.  It's the shy little girl that just wants to be loved. 

Go check it out, it's a lovely video.  Behind the scenes video featuring Josh singing Brave --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63BnhyTQJlw&feature=youtu.be

Here are the lyrics:

"Brave"

Wake up, wake up, the sun cannot wait for long
Reach out, reach out before it fades away
You will find the warmth when you surrender
Smile into the fear and let it play

You wanna run away, run away
And you say that it can't be so
You wanna look away, look away
But you stay 'cause it's all so close
When you stand up and hold out your hand
In the face of what I don't understand
My reason to be brave

Hold on, hold on so strong, times just carries on
All that you thought was wrong is pure again
You can't hide forever from the thunder
Look into the storm and feel the rain

You wanna run away, run away
And you say that it can't be so
You wanna look away, look away
But you stay 'cause it's all so close
When you stand up and hold out your hand
In the face of what I don't understand
My reason to be brave

Go on, go on

You wanna run away run away
And you say that it can't be so
You wanna look away look away
But you stay 'cause it's all so close
When you stand up and hold out your hand
In the face of what I don't understand
My reason to be brave
