Check out this 2005 track from Living Legend’s Classic album. I heard it for the first time today, only to realize that when this song came out I was 17 yrs. old. I was just a high school student with little knowledge of what the world had in store.
Two years later, I found myself in Canada for summer break. Making the decision to extend my stay because of the opportunities available here was not easy. It still isn’t. I left an incomplete degree, friends, and family behind in Jamaica. Sometimes it’s all too much, but when the sun becomes scorching I simply seek shade and will myself to continue.
So to every one going through a rough patch, give this a listen. Remember that sometimes you’ll find yourself in what seems like an impossible situation. You’ll find yourself questioning your worth, your values, and the values of the world. Sometimes, you’ll even find that you don’t want to continue. But it’ll get better…just will yourself to never fall down!
