Show Me How To Fight For Now

I am heavily moved and inspired by music. Mirrors by Justin Timberlake is one of those songs that get me every time. Before I speak my mind, check out the music video and lyrics below if you haven’t already.

Verse 1

Aren’t you somethin’ to admire
Cause your shine is somethin’ like a mirror
And I can’t help but notice
You reflect in this heart of mine
If you ever feel alone and
The glare makes me hard to find
Just know that I’m always
Parallel on the other side


Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul
I can tell you there’s no place we couldn’t go
Just put your hand on the glass
I’m here tryin’ to pull you through
You just gotta be strong


I don’t wanna lose you now
I’m lookin’ right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space that now you hold
Show me how to fight for now
And I’ll tell you, baby, it was easy
Comin’ back into you once I figured it out
You were right here all along
It’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn’t get any bigger
With anyone else beside me
And now it’s clear as this promise
That we’re making
Two reflections into one
Cause it’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me

Verse 2

Aren’t you somethin’, an original
Cause it doesn’t seem really as simple
And I can’t help but stare, cause
I see truth somewhere in your eyes
I can’t ever change without you
You reflect me, I love that about you
And if I could, I
Would look at us all the time




Yesterday is history
Tomorrow’s a mystery
I can see you lookin’ back at me
Keep your eyes on me
Baby, keep your eyes on me


You are, you are the love of my life [x10]

Baby, you’re the inspiration for this precious song
And I just wanna see your face light up since you put me on
So now I say goodbye to the old me, it’s already gone
And I can’t wait wait wait wait wait to get you home
Just to let you know, you are

You are, you are the love of my life [x8]

Girl you’re my reflection, all I see is you
My reflection, in everything I do
You’re my reflection and all I see is you
My reflection, in everything I do

You are, you are the love of my life [x16]

This is an overall amazing song. Amazing melody and amazing lyrics. I can really relate to this song to my relationship with Rick. I could pick apart each lyric in this song and speak about it, but I won’t do that. This song is about being in love and staying in love, even if it isn’t easy. The line that resonates with me the most at this moment is show me how to fight for now.

Love isn’t always easy. It isn’t always romantic dates, non-stop laughter, great vacations, and overall good times. As the video displays, there are great times as well as heartbreaking moments. So what do you do during the hurt, anger, and disappointments. Fight. No, not the kicking and screaming type of fighting. Fight for now.

Take each day at a time, and fight for your love. Remember the good times and always cherish what you have. Work on your problems, makes compromises, and most importantly, fight together.

Rick is not always at his best, and neither am I. At those moments when I am weak, I need someone to show me how to fight for now. You fight against anger. You fight against abandonment. You fight for what is good in your life, your other half.

That is what I am currently learning in the short almost 5 months we have been married. I don’t wanna lose Rick and he doesn’t want to lose me despite hardships. What we have isn’t perfect, but I can say we have amazing chemistry which is evident to all who know us (though it goes way beyond that) and we love each other more than anything in the world. It’s worth it to fight for now.
