Thumbs up "Strength, Courage, and Wisdom"

I normally don't go for hip hop music, but I loved India Arie's first album. I was reminded of this song a couple of days ago, and thought I'd share it. It's very inspirational to me when I'm having a hard time.

"Strength, Courage, and Wisdom" by India Arie

Inside my head there lives a dream that I want to see in the sun
Behind my eyes there lives a me that I've been hiding for much too long
'Cause I've been too afraid to let it show
'Cause I'm scared of the judgment that may follow
Always putting off my living for tomorrow

It's time to step out on faith, I've gotta show my face
It's been illusive for so long, but freedom is mine today
I've gotta step out on faith, it's time to show my face
Procrastination had me down but look what I have found

I found strength, courage, and wisdom
And it's been inside of me all along
Strength, courage, and wisdom
Inside of me

Behind my pride there lives a me that knows humility
Inside my voice there is a soul, and in my soul there is a voice
But I've been too afraid to make a choice
'Cause I'm scared of the things that I might be missing
Running too fast to stop and listen

It's time to step out on faith, I've gotta show my face
It's been illusive for so long but freedom is mine today
I've gotta step out on faith, it's time to show my face
Procrastination had me down but look what I have found

I found strength, courage, and wisdom
And it's been inside of me all along
Strength, courage, and wisdom
Inside of me

I close my eyes and I think of all the things that I want to see
'Cause I know now that I've opened up my heart
I know that anything I want can be, so let it be, so let it be

I found it in me, I found it finally
I'm sure to keep it 'cause I like it, and I say thank you
