I love this. It’s an easily relatable sentiment and a reminder to be different, be unique, be yourself. And do it with a smile on your face 馃檪

Music Monday: Fight Like A Girl

It’s never too late for New Years resolutions, right?

Life…it ebbs and flows, right?聽 Lots of changes over the last couple months for this聽gal, but now聽that I聽feel like the waters are a bit calmer for the time being, time to get back to the fun stuff, like writing on this blog.聽 Not only #findingthehappy, but choosing the happy.聽 BIG difference between the two.聽 Think about it…I know I have this year聽馃檪

Anyway, time for聽Music Monday!

I heard聽this song for the first time a couple weeks ago, and it resonated聽with me聽for聽several reasons.聽 The general mood of the song聽fits me well – mix of sassy and sweet, with聽confidence and a ‘don’t you doubt me’ attitude.聽 And the second verse is just perfection – little but loud (ummm…PREACH), tell without a doubt I’m my mama’s daughter (truth…I’m聽a total mini-me).

The music video isn’t my fave, but I like the tune – click the link at the bottom of this post.聽 Lyrics are聽pasted below (from genius.com).

Perhaps it will remind you of someone in your life 馃檪

Kalie Shorr – “Fight Like A Girl”

He鈥檚 calling out my name, says I始m just a featherweight
He thinks the slightest breeze could blow me over
But what he doesn鈥檛 know, is I始ve got a slingshot and a stone
And I can win with no one in my corner
So don始t you even try to hold me back

[Chorus]
I got my high heels on with my boxing gloves
I can knock you out with a one two punch
I始m perfume sweet and whiskey strong
I damn sure ain始t no underdog
I might fall down, but I get back up
I shine brightest when the going始s tough
You say I can始t, well darling watch me
You can始t stop me
Cause I fight like a girl

I始m little but I始m loud, just wanna make my mama proud
And you can tell without a doubt that I始m her daughter
She raised me to believe that I can be anything
So when you push me I鈥檒l just push back harder

[Chorus]
I got my high heels on with my boxing gloves
I can knock you out with a one two punch
I始m perfume sweet and whiskey strong
I damn sure ain始t no underdog
I might fall down, but I get back up
I shine brightest when the going始s tough
You say I can始t, well darling watch me
You can始t stop me
Cause I fight like a girl

I fight tough, I fight hard, I fight fair
Won始t stop fighting til I get there
No I ain始t afraid to cry
Everybody始s gotta feel something sometimes
I fight tough, I fight hard, I fight fair
Won始t stop fighting til I get there
I ain始t afraid to cry
I ain始t afraid to fight

[Chorus]
I got my high heels on with my boxing gloves
I can knock you out with a one two punch
I始m perfume sweet and whiskey strong
I damn sure ain始t no underdog
I might fall down, but I get back up
And I shine brightest when the going始s tough
You say I can始t, well darling watch me
You can始t stop me
Cause I fight like a girl

I fight tough, I fight hard, I fight fair
Won始t stop fighting til I get there
No I ain始t afraid to cry
I fight like a girl聽
