Just Stand Up!

The lyrics posted below are for “Just Stand Up”, a collaboration between Carrie Underwood, Rihanna, Fergie, Mary J Blige, Leona Lewis, Beyonce, Sheryl Crow, Miley Cyrus, Keyshia Cole, LeAnn Rimes, Natasha Bedingfield and I might be missing a few.  But whether you like each of these artists individually or not, the song is beautiful and the meaning behind it is even better.
While this song was written and promoted for the Stand Up! to Cancer organization, the lyrics are fitting for whatever you’re going through.  On the day that I’m choosing to begin my 30 Day Yoga Challenge, this song came on my iTunes library randomly and it felt very fitting.  I had to find the lyrics and post for everyone to see.  Keep this thought with you everyday:  “You don’t gotta be a prisoner in your mind, if you fall, dust if off, you can live your life” (can you say new mantra?!)

Just Stand Up
Every thing will be alright, yeah
The heart is stronger
Than you think
It’s like it can go
Through anything
And even when you think
It can’t it finds a way
To still push on
Though

Sometimes
You want to run away
Ain’t got the patience
For the pain
And if you
Don’t believe it
Look into
Your heart
The beat goes on

I’m tellin’ you
Things get better
Through whatever
If you fall
Dust it off
Don’t let up
Don’t you know
You can go
Be your own miracle
You need to know…

If the mind
Keeps thinking
You’ve had enough
But the heart
Keeps telling you
Don’t give up

Who are we to be
Questioning
Wondering what is what
Don’t give up
Through it all
Just stand up

It’s like
We all have better days
Problems getting all up
In your face
Just because
You go through it
Don’t mean it got
To take control, no
You ain’t gotta find
No hiding place
Because the heart
Can beat the hate
Don’t wanna
Let your mind
Keep playin’ you
And sayin’ you
Can’t go on

I’m tellin’ you
Things get better
Through whatever
If you fall 
Dust if off
Don’t let up 
Don’t you know you
Can go

Be your own
Miracle
You need to know

If the mind
Keeps thinking
You’ve had enough
But the heart
Keeps telling you
Don’t give up
Who are we to be
Questioning
Wondering what is what
Don’t give up
Through it all
Just stand up

You don’t gotta be
A prisoner
In your mind
If you fall
Dust it off
You can live your life
Yeah

Let your heart
Be your guide
Yeah, yeah, yeah
And you will know
That you’re good
If you trust in the good
Everything
Will be alright, yeah
Light up the dark
If you follow your heart
And it will get better
Through whatever

If the mind
Keeps thinking
You’ve had enough
But the heart
Keeps telling you
Don’t give up
Who are we to be
Questioning
Wondering what is what
Don’t give up
Through it all
Just stand up

You got it in you
Find it within
You got in ya
Find it within now
You got in you
Find it within
You got in ya
Find it within now
You got in you
Find it within
You got it in you
Find it within
Find it within you
Find it within

Through It All, Just Stand Up!
