Song of the Day – You Gotta Be by Des’ree

A friend sent me this song earlier and I listened to it, but didn’t take note of it.  I loved it of course, but clearly I didn’t listen to the words.  I mean, I was having a great day.  I made the stupid assumption it would carry throughout the day.  Stupid thought process for sure.

Listen as your day unfolds
Challenge what the future holds
Try and keep your head up to the sky
Lovers, they may cause you tears
Go ahead release your fears
Stand up and be counted
Don’t be ashamed to cry
You gotta be
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard
You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together

Goodness knows I did not stay cool, did not stay calm and I sure as hell didn’t stay together when one thing in my day stepped out of line for me.  Apologies for that, not that apologies can cover and resolve all issues… not right away anyways, but all you can do is apologize sometimes and then learn how to be wiser, tougher, stronger, cool and calmer.
