Music Mondays: The Climb (Miley Cyrus)

If there’s anything that can describe my life right now, it’s The Climb by Miley Cyrus. Life is never easy. It’s never fair. It’s never anything we want or expect it to be. But how I react to it is my own choice. How I live it is my own choice. Not anyone else’s.

The Climb by Miley Cyrus

In the past few weeks, I’ve learned more about myself than in all the years I’ve lived.

Fear is my greatest obstacle. Fear of failure. Fear of rejection. Fear of getting hurt again. But I know it won’t get me anywhere if I succumb to fear. So whenever I feel fearful, I tell myself this:

It’s alright to make mistakes and sometime failure is necessary. Forgive yourself, learn the lesson, and move on.

It’s alright to be rejected. You can never please anyone. Sometimes rejection means there’s a better way or a better option. Accept and be open to all possibilities.

It’s alright to get hurt. To suffer is human. Be vulnerable and feel your emotions. Sometimes, you have to break in order to re-create yourself again.

 A head full of fears has no space for dreams.

Music Mondays: Twerk It Like Miley (Brandon Beal ft. Christopher)

No, I don’t know how to twerk like Miley. What I do know is that this song reminds me of last week’s Music Mondays featured song, at least on the chorus part. That’s actually the reason why I’m featuring Twerk It Like Miley for this week’s Music Mondays.

Other than that, kudos to Miley Cyrus for always pushing boundaries and keeping everyone at the edge of their seat. She knows how to generate a buzz—good and bad alike.

I never really did hate her. Oh I love her in her Hannah Montana years and her partying in the USA moments. I still believe she has a great voice although she does not use it so much these days (like Lady Gaga before she sang in the Oscars), which is  a little sad but hey, whatever makes you happy, right?

But today’s video won’t be the official music video since I found two (2) dance routines I’d like to share. It’s hard not to pick because they are two different styles—one hard hitting and the other’s sexy in that K-Pop way.

Did you notice the similarity in the this week’s and last week’s Music Mondays? 🙂
