Today is YOUR Day

 You got what it takes you can win...

You got what it takes you can win
Today is your day to begin
Don't give up here, don't you quit
The moment is now, this is it
I know that you can, then you will
Get to the top of the hill
Part of the fun is the climb
You just gotta make up your mind

That today is your day
And nothing can stand in your way
Today is your day
Everything's goin' your way

Today, today, today, today

When somebody throws sticks and stones
All they can break are your bones
And life's gonna kick around
Then kick you again when your down


But today is your day
And nothing can stand in your way
Today is your day
Everything's goin' your way

Today, today, today, today

Life's goin' to kick you
It's goin' to kick you around
It's goin' to kick you down

Dust yourself off, no regrets
This is as good as it gets
Don't expect more, or less
Just go out and give it your best

Today is your day
And nothing can stand in your way
Today is your day
Everything's goin' your way

Today, today, today, today

Today is your day....



I haven't been a huge fan of Shania Twain since 1996, but when she had her reality show I have to admit I did watch it.  And as she wrote this song I fell in love with it.  It has such a positive message and motivating message.  I'm sure I'm the only person that has it on their work out play list, but I absolutely love it when it comes on my iPhone while I'm working out.  It's defiantly a great song to start out with.  Sets the whole tone for my work out and reminds me why I'm on the treadmill.  I think that's super important when working out.  To start it out with a positive song that reminds you what all you're working towards......

 I've always been a believer that you need reminders of why and what you're working towards.  When I did Weight Watchers in 2007 I had reminders up everywhere and I was somewhat successful for a while.  Obviously though lol, I gained the 60 lbs I lost and then some back, BUT it did help so much!  One was Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future".  I also had a star with motivating words written on it that I had received at a meeting on my bathroom mirror.  And this will probably sound cheesy but I had a picture of Sara Evans on my fridge lol.  I really loved her image and her style back then.  I knew I wouldn't look like her but it gave me motivation to work towards.......

You got what it takes you can win
Today is your day to begin
Don't give up here, don't you quit
The moment is now, this is it
