Monday Motivation – Leonard Cohen

Monday Motivation is back for 2013 and I’m hoping to bring you some quotes and excerpts from different sources, along with an explanation about why they motivate or inspire me.

This week the inspiration is from the lyrics of Leonard Cohen’s song Anthem. I have a huge admiration for Mr Cohen, I think his songs are not only beautiful but hold such truth. His song Dance Me Til The End Of Time is one of my all time favourites, with Hallelujah a very close second.

My interpretation of these lyrics is that it is ok not to be ‘perfect’ all the time. To do the best you can with what you have, sometimes it might be broken but your true self will still shine through.

Anthem Lyrics, Leonard Cohen

I’d love to hear what they say to you, please leave me a comment below.
