Made a wrong turn
Once or twice
Dug my way out
Blood and fire
Bad decisions
That’s alright
Welcome to my silly life

Mistreated
Misplaced
Misunderstood
Miss knowing it’s all good
It didn’t slow me down.

Mistaking
Always second guessing
Underestimating
Look I’m still around

Pretty, pretty please
Dont you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than
less than perfect

Pretty, pretty please
If you ever, ever feel
Like you’re nothing
less than perfect to me

You’re so mean
When you talk
About yourself, you were wrong
Change the voices in your head

Make them like you instead
So complicated
Look how we all make it
Filled with so much hatred
Such a tired game

It’s enough
I’ve done all I can think of
Chased down all my demons
I’ve seen you do the same

Pretty, pretty please
Dont you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than
Less than perfect

Pretty, pretty please
If you ever, ever feel
Like you’re nothing
Less than perfect to me

The whole worlds scared
So I swallow the fear
The only thing I should be drinking
Is an ice cold beer

So cool in line
And we try, try, try
But we try too hard
And it’s a waste of my time

Done looking for the critics
Cause they’re everywhere
They don’t like my jeans
They don’t get my hair

Exchange ourselves
And we do it all the time
Why do we do that?
Why do I do that?

Why do I do that?

Yeeeeaaaahhh
Oooooooh
Oh baby pretty please

Pretty, pretty please
Dont you ever feel
Like you’re less than
Less than perfect

Pretty, pretty please
If you ever, ever feel
Like you’re nothing
Less than perfect to me

You’re perfect, you’re perfect

Pretty, pretty please
If you ever, ever feel
Like you’re nothing
You are perfect to me

We have more chances than we realize.

Chances to start over.

Chances to make it right.

Chances to correct it.

Chance to live a new life.

Chances to forgive.

We will mess up.

Over and over and over and over again.

It’s ok.

Mess up.

Then try again.

Fall.

Then get up.

And walk forward.

It’s ok to fail.

It’s ok to forgive.

To forgive others.

To forgive ourselves.

Guilt only prompts us to change something, it is not for us to hang on to.

Throw it away.

Spit it out.

We get plenty of chances to start over, to fall, to fail, to forgive.

7x70x7,000x………

GRACE is unlimited.

Starting over.

March 30, 2011

Starting over.

New beginnings.

Fresh starts.

We get them everyday.

We can choose to walk away, to stay, to fight….

We have choices.

We have power.

No one has taken that power away from us.

You are precious.

Priceless.

You are adored.

Cherished.

You. Are. Loved.

Stand up.

Take back what they have tried to take away from you.

Wrestle through.

Welcome to the journey.

To the road to recovery.

To healing.

To new life.

To new beginnings.

Destination: Freedom.
