Last night on American Idol, the Elite 8 say the song that most inspires them. I was a bit surprised at the range of songs they chose.
And it got me wondering what song would I pick as my inspirational choice (I promise that I won’t sing, just write).
I’ve decided on Lee Ann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance.”
I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances
But they’re worth taking
Lovin’ might be a mistake
But it’s worth making
It took me a long time to realize that the safe route wasn’t always the best route. I was afraid of failure. I didn’t realize that I would become a better person because of the chances I take, that the rewards outweigh the risks.
And that’s a life lesson I hope to pass on to my kids and I think this song does a great job of relaying that message.
What song would you pick to inspire you?
