It's Amazing

Yesterday I was listening to iTunes on random when a song from the Sex and the City Movie soundtrack came on. I know I must have heard this song a thousand times, but for some reason the words never really clicked with me until yesterday. It won't let me embed the video from youtube, but here is the link, the song is called "It's Amazing".

Here are the basics of the lyrics. It will be obvious why they mean so much to me:

Do it now
You know who you are
You feel it in your heart
And you're burning and wishing
And first wait, it won't be on a plate
You're gonna have to work for it harder and harder.
(Chorus) And I know, cause I've been there before
Knockin' on your door with rejection
And you'll see cause if it's meant to be
Nothing can compare to deserving your dream
It's amazing, It's amazing, all that you can do.
It's amazing, it makes me heart sing,
Now it's up to you.

Patience now, frustration in the air
And people who don't care,
Well it's gonna get you down
And you'll fall
Yes you will hit a wall
Get back up on your feet
And you'll be stronger and smarter.
And I know, cause I've been there before... (repeats chorus from above)

That isn't the entire song, of course, but it's the main parts. I love that part where she sings "Nothing can compare to deserving your dream". It made me realize that it's not just about talent or wanting something with all of your heart. It's also about earning it. Deserving it because you worked hard and didn't give up despite any obstacles. I want to deserve the dream, so I am going to work for it.
