So Long Status Quo!

brave

So this morning while my LuLu was getting ready, brushing her teeth and fixing her hair in the bathroom, and the Little Man was upstairs sleeping, I decided to take a 3-minute “Get Up and Dance” break!! Yes, I full-on blasted this song and danced around my kitchen {there may or may not have been loud singing involved, too. I’m pleading the fifth on that one!!}…Lu walked out of the bathroom and into my dance party, at first with an “OMG You are totally embarrassing me” look on her face, and then quickly realizing there was no one around to embarrass her in front of, so I got her to join me for a second or two!!

Here’s the song that lit up my morning a little more…Brave by Nicole Nordeman

The gate is wide
The road is paved in moderation
The crowd is kind and quick to pull you in
Welcome to the middle ground
You’re safe and sound and
Until now it’s where I’ve been

‘Cause it’s been fear that ties me down to everything
But it’s been love, Your love, that cuts the strings

So long status quo
I think I just let go
You make me want to be brave
The way it always was
Is no longer good enough
You make me want to be brave
Brave, brave

I am small
And I speak when I’m spoken to
But I am willing to risk it all
I say Your name
Just Your name and I’m ready to jump
Even ready to fall.

Why did I take this vow of compromise?
Why did I try to keep it all inside?

So long status quo
I think I just let go
You make me want to be brave
The way it always was
Is no longer good enough
You make me want to be brave
Brave, brave

I’ve never known a fire that didn’t begin with a flame
Every storm will start with just a drop of rain
But if you believe in me
That changes everything
So long, I’m gone

So long status quo
I think I just let go
You make me want to be brave
I wanna be brave
The way it always was
Is no longer good enough
You make me want to be brave
Brave, brave
