I wish you never need to carry more than you can hold

I'm a sucker for acoustic songs because of the inexhaustible wealth of sentiment they can somehow convey.

You know that "Oh my god!" moment when you hear a song that perfectly expresses or reflects your innermost thoughts and feelings? When it strikes a resounding chord somewhere deep inside you - and the reverberations that follow will only be satisfied with said song on repeat mode indefinitely (and until everyone around you is so sick and tired of your playlist that they groan and plead for you to refresh your song choice)?

Well, "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts is that song for me now. As crazy as it sounds, it speaks to me. It's an amazing song - honest, heartfelt and beautiful. Do listen out for the chorus, because those simple lines, I think, make up the most meaningful blessing you could ever give anyone: "My wish for you..Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small. You never need to carry more than you can hold". 

And I wish it for you.



My Wish
by Rascal Flatts

I hope that the days come easy and the moments pass slow
And each road leads you where you want to go
And if you're faced with a choice and you have to choose
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you
And if one door opens to another door closed
I hope you keep on walking till you find the window
If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile

But more than anything, more than anything
My wish for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish

I hope you never look back, but you never forget
All the ones who love you in the place you left
I hope you always forgive and you never regret
And you help somebody every chance you get
Oh you find God's grace in every mistake
And you always give more than you take

But more than anything, yeah, and more than anything,
My wish for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish

My wish for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish

This is my wish
I hope you know somebody loves you
May all your dreams stay big
