To prove to myself I could do it
I took on the challenge when you said I couldn’t

To prove to myself I could do it
I conquered my fear of heights
I climbed the 20 stories of the Agawa Canyon
I rode up in the lift truck secured in by those extra sexy firemen
I touched the top of the 18′ ladder

To prove to myself I could do it
I left my abusive relationship of 8 years
And started over with nothing
I’ve restarted over again each time I’ve made wrong choices
And I’ve persevered despite adversity
Through tough times and down times
I pick myself back up and keep going

To prove to myself I could do it
I face fear with courage and faith
I gain experience and responsibility
Life lessons may be learned the hard way
And tears may be shed in bed under grey clouds some days

But I’ve proved to myself I could do it
And I don’t let a bad day yesterday
Affect a good day today
