The Sound of My Day: “Live Like a Warrior”

Normally I don’t know that I will share songs in such rapid succession but with this song and on this day I will make an exception.

As 2017 closes and we wait eagerly for 2018 and all it’s promise, think on those things that are negative and unhealthy, every critical thought you’ve had or that has been spoken to you, every argument, every difficulty, and every shortcoming in your life that you do not want going with you into the new year, whether they are from 2017 or from years past. Sit with them for a few minutes reflecting on every uncomfortable facet and letting all the emotions associated with them wash over you.

When you’re done, choose to throw them off of yourself, visualizing cutting the ties that bind them to you. You cannot erase them from your past but you can choose not to carry them with you into the future.

As you enter 2018, choose to let yesteryear burn and throw that negativity in the fire.

“Live Like a Warrior”

Matisyahu, Spark Seeker, 2012

Songwriters: Vincent Stein, Jack Knight, Matthew Miller, Konstantin Scherer, Allan Grigg, Kori Withers

Feel like the world don’t love you
They only want to push you away
Some days people don’t see you
You feel like you’re in the way
Today you feel, as if everyone hates
Pointing their fingers, looking at your mistakes
You do good, they want great
No matter what you give they still want to take
You give your love and they throw it back
You give your heart they go on attack
When there’s nothing left for you,
Only thing that you can do, say

Today, today, live like you wanna,
Let yesterday burn and
Throw it in a fire, in a fire, in a fire,
Fight like a warrior,
Today, today, live like you wanna,
Let yesterday burn and
Throw it in a fire, in a fire, in a fire,
Live like a warrior

Some things you should let go,
They’re only gonna pull you down,
Just like weight on your shoulder
They are only gonna make you drown
We all swing high, we all swing low,
We all got secrets people don’t know
We all got dreams we can’t let go,
We want to brave, don’t be afraid oh

Today, today, live like you wanna,
Let yesterday burn and
Throw it in a fire, in a fire, in a fire,
Fight like a warrior,
Today, today, live like you wanna,
Let yesterday burn and
Throw it in a fire, in a fire, in a fire,
Live like a warrior

Your heart is too heavy from things you carry a long time,
You been up you been down, tired and you don’t know why,
But you’re never gonna go back, you only live one life
Let go, let go, let go
Let go, let go, let go

Today, today, live like you wanna,
Let yesterday burn and
Throw it in a fire, in a fire, in a fire,
Fight like a warrior,
Today, today, live like you wanna,
Let yesterday burn and
Throw it in a fire, in a fire, in a fire,
Live like a warrior

Today, today, live like you wanna,
Let yesterday burn and
Throw it in a fire, in a fire, in a fire,
Fight like a warrior,
Today, today, live like you wanna,
Let yesterday burn and
Throw it in a fire, in a fire, in a fire,
Live like a warrior
