Listen to Yourself - Welcome to Wherever You Are

Listen to Yourself – How a Bon Jovi Song Helped Me Remember Something Important

I’ve always been a big Bon Jovi fan but lost touch with their music the past few years. I was working out a few days ago, listening to their album “Have a Nice Day” and a song called “Welcome To Wherever You Are” came on. I was jogging and the lyrics stopped me in my tracks. I’m not a crier by nature, but at that moment I was almost in tears reflecting on my journey and how far I’ve come. Learning how to listen to yourself turns out to be one of my bigger challenges and it was incredible that the universe gave this to me at the exact moment I needed it.

I was going to point out a specific lyric that touched me, but it’s the entire sentiment, the complete thought reached me so deeply. This is your life, you made it this far…  enjoy.

BON JOVI LYRICS 

“Welcome To Wherever You Are”

Maybe we’re different, but we’re still the same
We all got the blood of Eden, running through our veins
I know sometimes it’s hard for you to see
You come between just who you are and who you wanna be

If you feel alone, and lost and need a friend
Remember every new beginning, is some beginning’s end

[Chorus]
Welcome to wherever you are
This is your life, you made it this far
Welcome, you gotta believe
That right here right now, you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be
Welcome, to wherever you are

When everybody’s in, and you’re left out
And you feel your drowning, in a shadow of a doubt
Everyones a miracle in their own way
Just listen to yourself, not what other people say

When it seems you’re lost, alone and feeling down
Remember everybody’s different
Just take a look around

[Chorus]

Be who you want to, be who you are
Everyones a hero, everyones a star

When you wanna give up, and your hearts about to break
Remember that you’re perfect, God makes no mistakes

[Chorus]
