This song popped in my head driving into work this morning.  If you're having one of those days, this will definitely help. Ear Candy Love from Blue October . 

Jump Rope / Blue October

Remember how you used to say
"you couldn't wait till tomorrow for a brand new day"
No fuss when ya had to ride the bus
You could add a little blush
Just to paralyze your school crush

Now your older and the weight upon your shoulder
Makes the world a little colder
No more hiding in the old days
Be strong
Don't give up hope
It will get hard
'Cause life's like a jump rope

Up down when it gets hard remember life's like a jump rope

There'll be a bump there will be a bruise
There'll be alarms and there will be a snooze
There'll be a path that u will get to choose
There'll be a win and there will be a lose

You have to hold your head up high and
Watch all the negative go by
Don't u ever be ashamed to cry
You go ahead
Cause life's like a jump rope

I want to tell u that everything will be okay
That everything will eventually turn itself to gold
Keep pushing through it all
Don't follow, lead the way
Don't lose yourself or your hope

Remember life's like a jump rope
