The 13th of July is known in Brazil as World Day of Rock. The day celebrates the annual rock and was chosen in honor of Live Aid mega event that happened on that day in 1985. The celebration is a reference to a desire expressed by Phil Collins, participant of the event, which one would it be considered “global day of rock.”

It’s a heartwarming ballad with the lyrics of song starting out with, “Love me tender, love me sweet. Never let me go, you made my life complete, and I love you so.”

As the New Years winds down, and the lyrics with the song above, I like to end this story with one of my favorite quotes from Oprah Winfrey, and I hope it inspires you to carry it through this new year of your life.

“The whole point of being alive is to evolve into the complete person you were intended to be.”
