Those of us who are fans of the rock band Evanescence will be familiar with the first part of the post title, Stand and Face the Unknown. These are lyrics that are an important part of their song, What you Want. It is the spirit of the song, but particularly the video for it, that gives me my own swagger as an attitude toward life.
Do what you, what you want
Your world’s closing in in you now (it isn’t over)
Stand and face the unknown (got to remember who you really are).
As I get older, the expression that life is too short now holds meaning. As someone who leads a busy life, time also seems too short.
There’s still time
Close your eyes
Only love will guide you home
Tear down the wall, and free your soul
This song’s sense of determination fits my own swagger Below is a video for the Evanescence song, What you Want:
