Rihanna’s Wisdom

I know, I know…a pop star saying something that resonates with me? But shame on me for judging. Wisdom can come from anywhere if you are open to receive it.

Rihanna has a tattoo on her collarbone that says “Never a failure, always a lesson”

I effing LOVE that. I feel like that one tiny statement is packed with so much power that it hits me like a punch in the face. As I’ve moved into a phase of being MUCH gentler with myself and my soul, I’ve learned that my mistakes are okay. Because I’m here to learn – not be perfect. So nothing I do is a failure, it’s just me learning. Because we don’t always know the right move…we’re just doing our best. And that’s ENOUGH. That’s always enough.

Tattoo is backwards so she can read it when she looks in the mirror.

Ri Ri doens’t stop there. I heard the song Fly during a Zumba class cool down a couple of months ago and the words were so true, so powerful, so me. I’m not here to live an ordinary life. I’m here to thrive, to fight, to soar, to fly. To rise and keep rising. And she gets it too.

“Fly”
(feat. Rihanna)

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
To fly
To fly
 
[Nicki Minaj:]
I wish today it will rain all day
Maybe that will kinda make the pain go away
Trying to forgive you for abandoning me
Praying but I think I’m still an angel away
Angel away, yeah strange in a way
Maybe that is why I chase strangers away
They got their guns out aiming at me
But I become Neo when they’re aiming at me
Me, me, me against them
Me against enemies, me against friends
Somehow they both seem to become one
A sea full of sharks and they all smell blood
They start coming and I start rising
Must be surprising, I’m just summising
I win, thrive, soar, higher, higher, higher
More fire[Chorus: Rihanna]
I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
To fly
To fly

[Nicki Minaj:]
Everybody wanna try to box me in
Suffocating every time it locks me in
Paint their own pictures then they crop me in
But I will remain where the top begins
Cause I am not a word, I am not a line
I am not a girl that can ever be defined
I am not fly, I am levitation
I represent an entire generation
I hear the criticism loud and clear
That is how I know that the time is near
So we become alive in a time of fear
And I ain’t got no motherfucking time to spare
Cry my eyes out for days upon days
Such a heavy burden placed upon me
But when you go hard your nay’s become yay’s
Yankee Stadium with Jay’s and Kanye’s

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
To fly
To fly

[Bridge: Nicki Minaj]
Get ready for it
Get ready for it
Get ready for it
I came to win
Get ready for it
Get ready for it
Get ready for it
I came to win

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
To fly
To fly
