Dedication Friday

I don’t really have anything this morning…and since I have to go work, I’m going to do this Dedication Friday.

The song I’ve chosen today is I’m Moving On by Rascal Flatts. I do a workshop every year for the convention of GASN (Gambler’s Anonymous of Southern Nevada) and that workshop is on how I relate music to my recovery and to when I was out practicing my disease/addiction. This song is how I felt after I did my fourth step (Took a moral and financial inventory of ourselves – the wording is a little off in that haha).

I want to dedicate this song to anyone out there who doesn’t know how to move on and is struggling. Anyone out there who is struggling with an addiction that they can’t seem to get rid of. There are choices out there and you just need to find them. There is a better way of life out there, you just need to want to find it. It works if you work it.

I’m Moving On – Rascal Flatts

I’ve dealt with my ghosts and I’ve faced all my demons
Finally content with a past I regret
I’ve found you find strength in your moments of weakness
For once I’m at peace with myself
I’ve been burdened with blame, trapped in the past for too long
I’m movin’ on

I’ve lived in this place and I know all the faces
Each one is different but they’re always the same
They mean me no harm but it’s time that I face it
They’ll never allow me to change
But I never dreamed home would end up where I don’t belong
I’m movin’ on

I’m movin’ on
At last I can see life has been patiently waiting for me
And I know there’s no guarantees, but I’m not alone
There comes a time in everyone’s life
When all you can see are the years passing by
And I have made up my mind that those days are gone

I sold what I could and packed what I couldn’t
Stopped to fill up on my way out of town
I’ve loved like I should but lived like I shouldn’t
I had to lose everything to find out
Maybe forgiveness will find me somewhere down this road
I’m movin’ on

I’m movin’ on
I’m movin’ on

    The Chad…you’re right!!! I love that “the Chad” makes me think of the character in Charlie’s Angels that Drew Barrymore was dating. What’s his name, something Green. ? anyway, thanks for stopping by and commenting :)
