Everything Will Change - Gavin DeGraw (new video cover)

Most of you know I went through some devastating life events in the last couple years. Until then, honestly life had been relatively easy for me. Things always seemed to work out in my favor, for my good. But with everything that happened, I began to question my optimism, wondering if it would be downhill from here. Thankfully I have some amazing family & friends who were rock solid encouragement. And I realized that my past doesn't define my future. I can decide tonight to make tomorrow better. That's what this song is about. Everything Will Change. "Even if you've been through hell, you're back." You see, you can start over. In so many ways. You're the only thing holding you back (that's what I realized for myself). So I started consciously trying to make the most of every minute of every day. It's a decision, to not be a victim of your circumstances, but instead to rise above & overcome. All these songs, this tenacious pursuit of my musical passion -- it's the culmination of every motivational speech I've ever heard. Why did I wait so long? I don't know. But it doesn't end there. Yes, I love music, but I wanted to get in better shape too, start working out more & eating healthier. My cousin Kevin has been a huge inspiration in that department. He's a beast. We push each other, iron sharpening iron. He got me watching Arnold Schwarzenegger biographies & sleeping less, or "faster" as Arnold says, ha. Now I have more drive than ever, more determination to reach my highest potential. Because we only get one life. It's short & so uncertain, but it's ours. Are you who you wanna be? Now's your chance. Before the night is over, before the world's awake, light a fire. And feel the burn. Something deep within that says there's more. Take what sucks & turn it around. Rocky said it best: "The world ain't all sunshine & rainbows. It's a very mean & nasty place, & I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees & keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit, it's about how hard you can get hit & keep moving forward, how much you can take & keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! Now if you know what you're worth, go out & get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits. And not pointing fingers saying: You ain't what you wanna be because of him or her or anybody. Cowards do that & that ain't you. You're better than that!" So go out & make this weekend count. I love you guys!
