2 Powerful Country Songs About Changing Your Life
(Lyrics) 'Here's to the Strong, Thanks to the Brave, Don't Give Up Hope Some People Change' - Some People Change by Montgomery Gentry
Against all odds you've done the bravest thing many people can't or won't do; you've mustered up the courage to change your life.
You did it not because you were trying to impress anyone or because you expected anything for changing, but solely because you decided it was time to live your authentic life.
Have you made choices throughout your life that you're not very proud of? Perhaps you've fallen into the pit of addiction, or you've hurt those you love the most with your words and actions. As the lyrics in Montgomery Gentry's song say, 'against all odds, against the grain, love finds a way, some people change'.
Maybe your change involves the brave and difficult choice of leaving an abusive relationship, or one that was simply wrong for you. No matter your story, your courage to better your life is celebrated in two very powerful country songs; 'Some People Change' by Montgomery Gentry and 'Changed' by Rascal Flatts.
Be sure to listen to both of the songs featured below; they celebrate the honest courage it takes to change, and the words and music are a moving anthem that honor any major changes you've bravely faced in your life.

'Changed' by Rascal Flatts - (Lyrics) 'The things I’ve done, Man, that was not me, I wish that I could take it all back
If your changed life involves a long hard road to truth and self discovery, then 'Changed' by Rascal Flatts may be your song.
(Lyrics) I got off track, I made mistakes, Back slid my way into that place where souls get lost
Accepting responsibility for our own actions is probably one of the most difficult aspects of life, especially if we've hurt a lot of people along the way.
The inspirational message delivered in Rascal Flatts' song 'Changed' talks about a person who walked away from his past with his eyes wide open. He could finally see where he was going, and was no longer the man he used to be.
The lyrics continue as he acknowledges how his life had been off track, and really wishes he could take back all of his mistakes.
The song closes with him being at a place in his heart where the deepest level of change can grow; he's beginning to forgive himself.
It's the forgiveness of self that is, without a doubt, the hardest thing to do. Before we get to a place where we can self-forgive, we need to make it right with those we've hurt. Our journey of change is about putting things right so that we can be gifted something that may have been illusive our entire life...a measure of inner peace.
'Changed' by Rascal Flatts - (Lyrics) I'm changed for the better, More smiles, Less bitter, I'm even starting to forgive myself
