When you know there’s more to life – You’ve got to make it work for you!

“(There’s Gotta Be) More To Life”

I’ve got it all, but I feel so deprived
I go up, I come down and I’m emptier inside
Tell me what is this thing that I feel like I’m missing
And why can’t I let it go [Chorus]
There’s gotta be more to life…
Than chasing down every temporary high to satisfy me
Cause the more that I’m…
Tripping out thinking there must be more to life
Well it’s life, but I’m sure… there’s gotta be more
Than wanting more I’ve got the time and I’m wasting it slowly
Here in this moment I’m half way out the door
Onto the next thing, I’m searching for something that’s missing [repeat chorus]
I’m wanting more
I’m always waiting on something other than this
Why am I feelin’ like there’s something I missed…..[repeat chorus x2]


I heard this song on the radio yesterday (a favourite from my teenage years)  while driving home from a lovely family Sunday lunch at my cousins house. I don’t know why but it really made me think about how many people live their lives in a way that is completely unsatisfying. My life was a little like that, I always knew that there was more to life. I kept searching for that perfect moment, as Oprah (no I’m not a fan) would put it the AHA moment. When suddenly everything becomes clear. Suddenly we see meaning and purpose and know exactly what we need to do to achieve that. The problem is, not everyone embraces that moment. You really do have to jump up and grab it because who knows when it will happen again. I know it isn’t easy to do. I know how much courage it takes and I also know that there are so many people who won’t support you if you do decide to take the leap and change your life but you’ve got to do everything you can to make it happen.


There is no more or less to life, it’s simply what you make it.

Don’t sit around and watch your life pass you by.

Go out there and grab that bull by the horns and make it work for you. 

You only get one chance at this living thing. 

Make sure you make it count and one chance is all you need.
