Thoughtful Thursdays: A Little Musical Inspiration

Driving along on the way back from work with my iPod on shuffle, Jessie J's 'Stand Up' came bursting out of my speakers. I was stuck in traffic (shocker) and really listened to the lyrics (instead of just blindly singing at the top of my voice) and realised how meaningful they could be to us. 


If you surround yourself with negative people
You'll never feel settled in or become equal, no
They'll suppress you of your spirit and rinse you dry of smiles
So reach deep and release your inner child. Yeah, Yeah!

[Pre-Chorus:]
So Stand Up! For the Love, Love, Love
So Stand Up! For the Love, Love, Love
So Stand Up! Yeah

[Chorus:]
'Cause you're as old as you feel you are
And if you don't reach for the moon you can't fall on the stars
So I live my life like every day is the last, last, last
'Cause you're as old as you feel you are
And if you don't reach for the moon you can't fall on the stars
So I live my life like every day is the last, last, last

Listen!
If you let a frown become your normality, yes
You don't set an example for the youth of our humanity
If you spend every day wishing for the next to come
Aged and lifeless is what (Yes!) you'll become. Yeah, Yeah!

[Pre-Chorus:]
So Stand Up! For the Love, Love, Love
So Stand Up! For the Love, Love, Love
So Stand Up! Yeah

[Chorus:]
'Cause you're as old as you feel you are
And if you don't reach for the moon you can't fall on the stars
So I live my life like every day is the last, last, last
'Cause you're as old as you feel you are
And if you don't reach for the moon you can't fall on the stars
So I live my life like every day is the last, last, last
I live my life like every day is the last

So in all the bad and the good will soon come
Don't think second best
Be number one
Spread some love
Don't give to receive
Strive to be happy
And live to believe
So in all the bad and the good will soon come
Don't think second best
Be number one
Spread some love
Don't give to receive
Strive to be happy
And live to believe. Yeah Yeah Yeah!

So Stand Up! For the Love, Love, Love
So Stand Up! For the Love, Love, Love
So Stand Up! For the Love, Love, Love
So Stand Up! For the Love, Love, Love
So let me see you. Yeah Yeah!
[Chorus:]
'Cause you're as old as you feel you are
And if you don't reach for the moon you can't fall on the stars
So I live my life like every day is the last, last, last
'Cause you're as old as you feel you are
And if you don't reach for the moon you can't fall on the stars
So I live my life like every day is the last, last, last

So Stand Up! For the lololololololololololove Yeah
So Stand Up! For the lololololololololololove Yeah
*Lyrics from AZLyrics 

There's so much good advice in this song, my favourite part is 
'If you spend every day wishing for the next to come. Aged and lifeless is what you'll become'. I'm definitely guilty of wishing days away whether it was wishing my dissertation away or a bad day at work. I think we sometimes forget to appreciate every single day. 

I also love the 
'Spread some love. Don't give to receive. Strive to be happy. And live to believe' 
part, these are all things I need to put into practice more often. 

I haven't been able to get this song out of my head since my little revelation in the traffic jam, I keep finding myself singing it, which is good at it reminds me to put all of these things into practice!

If you have a song that particularly inspires you, let us know! We could all do with a little inspiration every now and then!

Love Lauren xx
