Today's bit of musical philosophy comes from Alexz Johnson and her song "Trip Around the World" featured on the CD Voodoo.
Stop and take a second look around this town
Things are changing all the time
Keep it in mind when you're feeling kicked down
The doubt, the trouble and the drought
You take it in before it takes you out
I think this is my favorite phrase on the whole CD. I love how that whole song (and this bit in particular) reminds you to just relax and take things in but don't let the negativity bring you down. What do you all take from this? Is there another one you would have used instead? Comment back and let me know.
