Great Day!

Some days are just plain noteworthy and today I had one of them.  I tossed and turned last night anticipating my new beginning today, an exciting new position.  One door had closed and another door opened in a way that made me reaffirm my thoughts of the power of intention. My eyes flew opened at 4:41 a.m. moments before my alarm was set to go off and I eagerly jumped out of bed.  I juiced my breakfast, carefully applied my make-up, put on my clothes, pounded down a cup of coffee, took a deep breath and headed out the door.  As I was driving to work a million things were running through my head and I must admit I was feeling a bit nervous.  I turned on my music for distraction and was flipping through my playlist, not only did I not know that I had downloaded Katy Perry’s Firework, but I also hadn’t ever listened to it on my playlist before…

“Firework”

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag,
Drifting through the wind
Wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards,
One blow from caving in?

Do you ever feel already buried deep?
6 feet under screams but no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there’s still a chance for you
‘Cause there’s a spark in you

You just gotta ignite, the light, and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

‘Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colours burst
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh”
You’re gonna leave ’em goin’ “Oh, oh, oh”

You don’t have to feel like a wasted space
You’re original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Maybe your reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will glow
And when it’s time, you’ll know

You just gotta ignite, the light, and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

‘Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colours burst
Make ’em go “Oh, Oh, Oh”
You’re gonna leave ’em goin’ “Oh, oh, oh”

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It’s always been inside of you, you, you
And now it’s time to let it through-ough-ough

‘Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go “Oh, Oh, Oh”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colours burst
Make ’em go “Oh, Oh, Oh”
You’re gonna leave ’em goin’ “Oh, oh, oh”

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon

There I was in my car, listening to the words and I started to tear up. Yeah, I know, it sounds really sappy but as I drove her words really hit a chord with me.  It is that moment in life when you realize how much you have overcome and that you are still breathing, still fighting, and for the first time ever I can honestly say that  I felt like I was shooting across the sky.

Take It Or Leave It…

Wherever your path in live leads you, whatever door closes or whatever door opens…always remember to show them what you are worth.  Fat, skinny, short, tall…or whatever challenge you have in life…Baby, you’re a fire work….let yourself shine!

Cheers!
