Unwritten

So I kept hearing this song on the radio and for whatever reason thought it was Kelly Clarkson singing it.  All I knew was a couple of lines from it and that it sounded like her.  So imagine my level of annoyance when I get home to check Youtube to hear it and not finding it.  I’ve heard a lot of Clarkson’s music, but not all.  So it was easy enough to filter out what I was looking for.  So when I didn’t find it I was perplexed.

This perplexing predicament lasted a while until I finally found out the title of the song.  Turns out it was Natasha Bedingfield’s song “Unwritten”.  And no, she and Kelly Clarkson sound absolutely nothing alike.  I have no idea what I was thinking.  Well, yes I do.  It seems like the kind of song that Ms. Clarkson would sing.  But whatever.  I was wrong, but now I have my song.

It’s another one of those uplifting tunes that speaks to me.  Like some other songs I’ve written about talking about living life to the fullest.  I especially love the line where she says ‘Drench yourself in words unspoken’.  I find this profound.  What does that mean? I honestly would like to know.  Seriously.  I don’t have my own interpretation of the line.  And it fascinates me.

And it comes to me at a great time.  With the week I’ve had, my confidence has gotten a little shaken.  I hate when that happens.  Everything always goes downhill from there.  I intend to not let that happen this time.  My future is at stake.  I gotta learn to take the bad, the horrible, the awful as well as the good the great and the terrific.  All those are necessary to make me into the person I am meant to be.

Whether these situations I’ve been through will make me a better person or not remains to be seen.  Everything that I’m doing right now is helping determine my tomorrow in some form or another.  I guess that is the beauty of not being able to see the future.  The not knowing.  The possibility that I will indeed be greater and do greater things.  So let’s see how tomorrow plays out.

I’m Weightless

Life has started taking such a spectacular turn.  The old me would sit back and question my good fortune.  Try to analyze it.  Wonder if it was a fluke.  The OLD me.  The new me, the person I was meant to be, is just gonna go with it and build on it.  I have never felt this happy and free.

In keeping with that just go with it attitude, I’m happy that my Ipod came across a song I didn’t remember having.  Natasha Bedingfield’s “Weightless” off her “Strip Me” album has turned into my theme for my new life.  It’s a song about not letting anything hold you back.  Freeing yourself from the weight of the world and doing your thing.  Whatever that thing is that makes you happy.  Basically, do you.

Here’s what she says:

“Sky is the limit and I just wanna float, free as a spirit on a journey of hope, cut the strings and let me go, I’m weightless, I’m weightless. Billions of balloons tethered to the ground, weight of the world try to hold us down, cut the strings and let me go, I’m weightless, I’m weightless.”

My renewed faith in God and a new found faith in myself is new, but if this is the kind of happiness that I can have with those things, I intend to extend them to the end of my lifetime.  I love when I come across songs that embody what I’m feeling at a particular time.  And that it came to my attention at this time makes it all the more awesome and close to my heart.

I’ll have this at the back of my mind as I’m out achieving everything that I said that I wanted.  I have so much to offer the world.  My faith and belief will make everything possible.  I believe that wholeheartedly.  No one and nothing is going to hold me back.  There’s no reason for me to allow that.  I’m too awesome for that.  Thanks for the theme Natasha!
