Baby, You’re a Firework

The Fourth of July makes me think of fireworks.
And fireworks make me think of this song.
And this song makes my heart race with inspiration,
and motivation,
and awesomeness.

And awesomeness makes me think of you,
of how much you matter–to me and to others,
and the difference you are making
without even realizing it.

Cuz baby, you’re a firework.
Come on, let your colors burst.
Ignite your light and let it shine.
Just own the night like the 4th of July.

So press play,
take a deep breath
close your eyes
and listen.

Because no matter who you are,
this song applies to you.
Trust me.

Ok, I’m stepping off my “motivational” soap box now.
