Today’s blog is more of a journal entry than anything.
I’ve been thinking a lot about life lately, trying to assess when the time is right to make a change if something isn’t working, or just keep treading water, trying to stay above water.
All these things I think about often, as I’m sure most people do.
Today, I was at a loss for words and thoughts, and conveniently, the universe just brought them to me.
It started with yoga, where the teacher dedicated today’s practice to “patience.” That’s something I’ve always struggled with. All of class we worked on trying to let go of mental and physical blocks that were brought on by wanting change so badly. Instead, we took a step back and held everything longer and worked on being patient with our bodies.
Then I continued the day listening to the Broadway channel on Sirius. It’s amazing what a good Broadway lyric can do for you.
First off was Julie Andrews with “I Have Confidence” from Sound of Music. The first words, “What will this day be like? I wonder. What will my future be? I wonder….I’ve always longed for adventure to do the things I’ve never dared. Now here I’m facing adventure, then why am I so scared?
I had to laugh out loud. Every word struck close to my heart. Brilliant stuff there Richard Rodgers.
Next up, Annie Get Your Gun, “I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night..”
To think how lucky I am, how could I take those simple things for granted? Oooh you were a smart cookie Irving Berlin!
Last, “What You Want”…is right in front of you! Legally Blonde topped it for the day.
Lyrics included so that you can sing along!
So, the moral of the blog: If you are feeling down or uncertain, turn on some Broadway tunes and you will feel bitchin and amazing in no time!
