SongLyricSunday: Courage- “You Gotta Be” By Des’ree #Music #Motivation


Hi everyone! I hope your weekend is going well. Today’s theme is about having courage from Helen’s blog.

Today, I chose a song called, “You Gotta Be” by a British native called Des’ree. I remembered hearing the song playing all the time on the radio back in the early nineties. As a kid going through life problems and too young to understand, this song had helped me through it and among others. And, even until now.

It teaches that you have to be courageous and strong no matter what comes your way. You can and will overcome it. You can do it!!!

 

Lyrics:

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
All I know, all I know, love will save the day

Herald what your mother said
Read the books your father read
Try to solve the puzzles in your own sweet time
Some may have more cash than you
Others take a different view
My oh my, yea, eh, eh

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
All I know, all I know, love will save the day

Time ask no questions, it goes on without you
Leaving you behind if you can’t stand the pace
The world keeps on spinning
Can’t stop it, if you tried to
This best part is danger staring you in the face

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
My oh my, eh, eh, eh

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
All I know, all I know, love will save the day
Yeah, yeah, yeah

(Partial lyrics)

I was motivated to share with you all these two quotes below. I hope it can help someone with whatever you are going through.

Stay strong and positive. Be blessed.

Take care,

Much Thanks On Reaching 1,000!!! #Achievement 


First off, how has everyone’s Thanksgiving been? Mines went well. I spent it with my mom, daughter, and brothers. I love how we can be ourselves with each other and just laugh and talk about any and everything.

Now, about you all, I would like to thank each and every one of you from the bottom for everything that you do. Thank you so so much!

When I first started this blog, K. Phoenix, I was totally lost and confused; yet, I have gotten through the five years of managing it with hard work, breaks, determination, etc.

Though, I wasn’t alone. You guys have supported me and listened to my struggles, the good and the bad, and read my stories. It means so much to me to have wonderful people out there who are there for you. (Sniff, sniff.)

A little secret of mines: I haven’t been consistent with my blogging over the years. I took too long of time away from it due to: frustration, family issues, and to find myself outside of it. I wanted to know who I really am and the direction I wanted K. Phoenix to go.

Wow! I have lost some followers and gained more. Getting my content out there and reaching out inspiring others (and helping others) was and still is my main goal- not a number of followers I hope to have.
A few things to remember:

  • Be yourself. (Everyone does their own thing differently. We all are unique.)
  • Find your voice.
  • Be humble.
  • Don’t give up. (I know it is hard, but imagine how far you’ll go if you just keep the momentum.)
  • And, always support others. (We’re all in together.)

    Again, thank you all for following me! It has been a pleasure following you and reading your blog posts. Several more years to go with you guys. Woot woot! 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌

    Much love,

    Pamela 🌹XO

    What Are You Thankful For? #HappyThanksgiving


     

    Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates it! I hope everyone enjoy their day, and please be safe. 

    Thanksgiving is here, so our minds have turned

    To what time has taught us, to what we’ve learned:We often focus all our thought
    On shiny things we’ve shopped and bought.
    We take our pleasure in material things,
    Forgetting the pleasure that friendship brings.
    If a lot of our stuff just vanished today,
    We’d see the foundation of each happy day
    Is special relationships, constant and true,
    And that’s when our thoughts go directly to you.
    We wish you a Thanksgiving you’ll never forget,
    Full of love and joy—your best one yet!
