Tuesday Tunes

After I lost my dad in Spring of 2009, I went right back to school mainly because I didn't know what else to do. One of the main reasons I survived was living in the music coming out of my earbuds; I wore them all the time. When I was going to class, work, studying, eating; I always had something playing. So today as I've been debating what to write for today's blog and feeling kind of down in the dumps; one particular song popped up on my shuffle today: Francesca Battistelli "The Break Up Song". I needed to here it today not for a blog topic but rather because I felt really run down and nervous about this whole authenticity journey. 
"Fear, you don't own me,
There ain't no room in this story,
And I ain't got time for you,
Telling me what I'm not,
Like you know me well guess what?
I know who I am,
I know I'm strong,
And I am free,
Got my own identity,
So fear, you will never be welcome here." - Francesca Battistelli, "The Break Up Song"
I'm reciting this in my head tonight reminding that music is often there when we're too tired to find the words ourselves. And to help us remember that we are strong and are capable of doing so many things. 

So if you're having a little trouble today, press shuffle on your music and find some inspiration.

"Is there anybody out there just like?
Anybody needing fear to leave?
If you don't know how to say it,
Sing along with me."
