For every one of those inspiring athletes
who are putting it all on the line.
For the ones who are
facing down fears
pushing past limits
blowing past barriers
feeling the pain
straining for the prize
every single wall along the way
again and again
but, somehow, never giving up
still fighting to win
still believing they can
still boldly declaring to the entire world
exactly what it is they want
and just how badly they want it
even if they may never actually get it.
For all of them
and for the rest of us too,
who are doing exactly the same thing in our everyday lives,
P.S. This is music for when it’s basically you against the world. To listen, just click the photo above, or go here. These are the songs that currently keep me fighting the good fight.
