Melissa and I are having a bit of writers’ block. Neither of us find our ideas fresh, or at least ready for prime time.
So here are some lyrics from someone else’s current hit song. It’s about romantic love, but there’s quite a bit of cross over to any passionate endeavor and relationship, so it’s right in a care giver’s wheelhouse. If you care, it hurts, but hurt doesn’t mean failure as long as you get up and try…
Ever worried that it might be ruined
And does it make you wanna cry?
When you’re out there doing what you’re doing
Are you just getting by?
Tell me are you just getting by by by
Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone’s bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn’t mean you’re gonna die
You’ve gotta get up and try try try
Gotta get up and try try try
The video is great, too, and available at the link, but it’s sensual and we don’t know all of the dispositions of our readers. So you can go and watch it if you want. Or just close your eyes and enjoy the words and music. And once you’re feeling refreshed, get up and try, try, try… again.
