Its a new World ….
it’s a new dawn ,
it’s a new day,
it’s a new life
.. For Me!!!
And I’m feeling Good!!”
You’ve got a theme tune haven’t you? If not you totally have to get one …. its the song you belt out in the shower … or alone in the car ….or when you are pegging out the washing .. or mopping the floor. Every Diva needs her entrance music!
Sure the kids and the cats think you are nuts .. but who cares IT’S YOUR SONG!!!
Mine is “Feeling Good” by Nina Simone ….. 2 mins 54 seconds of utter perfection that stabs me to the core and instantly changes my mood. I like the version she recorded when she was older – it sounds like a good friend giving me sage advice. And that advice ….
It’s all about changing your mood and Feeling Good!!!
Even in my darkest skinty skint days …. I understood that the difference between me making it and not making it was in my attitude. There was NEVER any question that I would make it .. two kids to feed make that completely non negotiable. But Nina was there …. reinforcing the idea that every day you get to make a choice – that every day you can have a “new dawn, new day, new life”
Penny by penny, choice by choice, meal by homecooked meal I crafted a new world for the boys and I ….. and when I look back at all I learned .. and look at the job I have now helping people it all makes perfect sense.
“And this Old world
Is a new World
And a bold World
We are wonderfully resilient women …. we take it all and we are still standing .. or as my mum-pal here says “ramming the wheels of my wheelchair at their knees” .. we keep on going. We deal with mess, with craziness and people that are just plain toxic and we keep on keeping on.
Our confidence in ourselves grows as we take care of our financial future …. amazing things happen. The people, places and opportunities show up to help us at the perfect moment. Things that we once thought of as so difficult suddenly melt away and become as easy as breathing in and breathing out. Friends appear (real and online) with solutions, or sympathy or the right words at the right time …. and we know it’s going to be all right again.
Empathy resonates inside and you feel strong enough to reach out and help others .. you feel powerful … you feel strong .. you feel empowered. You take on challenges that once you never dreamed of ever doing.
“Scent of the pine
You know how I feel?
Freedom is mine
When I know how I feel!”
Such a difference can occur when you change how you feel ……. in the shifting of your heart a whole world becomes possible .. just because you dream it can be!!
So …. homework for tonight …… what is your theme song ….. hop over to Youtube and post me a link … I want to hear the music of your wonderful hearts ….. what a playlist that would be
