Unwritten

“Unwritten”

As I was on my treadmill last night, a song came across my iPod that I hadn’t heard in quite a while.  I started listening to the words and felt myself inspired.  It’s Natasha Bedingfield’s song, “Unwritten”.  The song was released in November, 2004, so it’s nothing new. But the words of the song say it all.  To me the song is about writing your book on your life.  It’s about letting go, making mistakes, and growing from them.

There is a part where she sings the words, “I’m just beginning….The pen’s in my hand…Ending unplanned”.  For some the journey on their book has begun.  For others the journey is right around the corner.  We all have the pen in our hands to choose the chapters we want to write.  Maybe it’s about accomplishments , failed desires, achieving goals, or self struggles.  Still, you are the main character in your book.  The choice is yours.  The ending is unwritten and only you can write that chapter.  So think about this, if you had to write a book about yourself, what would the title be?  What would your chapters consist of? 

I am still writing my book and of course my title would be easy to guess…..Live To Win!  Live to win is about my journey through all my fears and learning how to turn my life around so I am a better person and can help others move forward.  Live To Win is about winning over the struggles in life.  It’s about releasing my inhibitions, letting go and living my life to the fullest.

Maybe it’s time for you to start your book…….. 

Here are the words to the song:

Natasha Bedingfield – Unwritten

I am unwritten,
Can’t read my mind
I’m undefined
I’m just beginning
The pen’s in my hand
Ending unplanned

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words
That you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your innovation

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten, yeah

Oh, oh

I break tradition
Sometimes my tries
Are outside the lines, oh yeah yeah
We’ve been conditioned
To not make mistakes
But I can’t live that way oh, oh

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words
That you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
drench yourself in words unspoken
live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
the rest still unwritten

(Gospel)
Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words
That you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open *****
Today is where your book begins

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open *****
Today is where your book begins

The rest is still unwritten

The rest is still unwritten
