May You Wake to Find You Are ‘Kings and Queens’

Have you ever felt stuck in … “the in-between”? (Ha! Yeah, how many times, right?) We aren’t where we used to be but not really where we’d hoped to be.  There can be a sweet spot where we find joy for where we’ve come from while growing toward where we aspire.  It could service us more.  Incubating gratitude could give us the edge we need.  Creativity isn’t clouded by the stress of worry which could drain us of our energy capping our personal “genius”.  We could see clearer.  Think clearer.  Hone one’s own uniqueness and soar with it because you’re not caught up in comparison which would only put a ceiling on what you could do by that kind of distraction.

“Ditching the dark… (not letting) lies through”, we could enjoy the journey… on the way to where we are going – our hearts staying free and open without the weight of the tricks our minds can play on us. As we approach each arrival of each milestone on that road, we may discover to flourish is stitched in us, energy lying between grace and passion.  And, as open our eyes with each rising sun of that trek, we may “(wake) to find we are kings and queens”.

I hope you find inspiration as you check out these lyrics as you listen below to ‘Kings and Queens’!

We’ve got a long way to go but we got the energy
It took a little while to find reality
We’ve come a long way you know, living inside a dream
Waking to find that we are kings and queens

Lights on
Sometimes this feels like sleeping with the lights on
The memories stay
They loop their lies on endless replay

Been sleeping where I fall if I can sleep at all
Cuz I wake where I wanna if I wake at all
To see the lines are blurred, reality deferred
And we’re chasing down tomorrow

We’ve got a long way to go but we got the energy
It took a little while to find reality
We’ve come a long way you know, living inside a dream
Waking to find that we are kings and queens

Ride on
Let’s ditch the dark babe, we just gotta ride on
Don’t let lies through
They’ll trick your mind and turn your heart to stone

Forget the wars we fight, forget the tears you cry
Cuz we go where we wanna but that won’t be tonight
To see the edges fade between the light and shade
And we’re chasing down forever

We’ve got a long way to go but we got the energy
It took a little while to find reality
We’ve come a long way you know, living inside a dream
Waking to find that we are kings and queens

We’ve got a long way to go but we got the energy
It took a little while to find it, to find it, to find it
We’ve come a long way you know, living inside a dream
It took a little while to find it, to find it, to find it

We’ve got a long to go but we got the energy
It took a little while to find reality
We’ve come a long way you know, living inside a dream
Waking to find that we are kings and queens
