Inspiration Playlist Volume 2, Track 5 “Dare You To Move”

Confession: I have a weakness for Nicolas Sparks books turned into films. It used to be that I had a weakness for Nicholas Sparks books until about 2002 or 2003 when they all started sounding the same. But those early books turned into some fabulous films: “The Notebook,” “Message in a Bottle,” and of course “A Walk to Remember.” I also happen to adore Mandy Moore, which is not quite as embarrassing as watching “The Lucky One” or “Safe Haven” in the theater by myself.


I also absolutely love Switchfoot’s “Dare You to Move,” because it reminds me of the film and gives me all of the feels.  It’s also a pretty motivational song:

Welcome to the planet
Welcome to existence
Everyone’s here
Everyone’s here
Everybody’s watching you now
Everybody waits for you now
What happens next
What happens next

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before


I’m going to stop now before I confess anything else embarrassing like how I still sleep with a baby blanket most nights or that I remembered wetting the bed until I was about eight  or that I’ve never read any of the Harry Potter books (or seen the films).

So with that I leave with you some videos:
