The infamous Nina Simone wrote one of my favorite theme songs of all time… “Feeling Good.”. My tidbit for this edition is a message to all my readers and the way I start my morning to stay inspired, motivated and well to put it mildly… “feeling good”… listening to the music, the rhythm and melody set the stage for reminding me of just how important it is to feel good everyday, as much as you can…even in the midst of “stuff” that we have no control over. Just because you’re going through something doesn’t mean you to have to wear it like a warm blanket around your soul. Shift that momentum of sadness and blahs with a little motivation as you dance in the mirror getting dressed in the morning… for those of you not familiar with the lyrics… here they are, just for you. As I celebrate my birthday this month, It’s my gift of empowerment, enlightenment and energizing your spring.
“Birds flying high, You know how I feel, Sun in the sky, You know how I feel
Breeze driftin’ on by, You know how I feel, It’s a new dawn, It’s a new day,
It’s a new life, For me, And I’m feeling good, I’m feeling good
Fish in the sea, You know how I feel, River running free, you know how I feel….
Blossom on a tree, You know how I feel, It’s a new dawn, It’s a new day It’s a new life
For me, And I’m feeling good…
Dragonfly out in the sun you know what I mean, don’t you know
Butterflies all havin’ fun you know what I mean, Sleep in peace when day is done
That’s what I mean, And this old world is a new world, And a bold world, For me
Stars when you shine, You know how I feel, Scent of the pine, You know how I feel
Oh freedom is mine, And I know how I feel, It’s a new dawn, It’s a new day, It’s a new life
It’s a new dawn, It’s a new day, It’s a new life, It’s a new life for me, And I’m feeling good
I feel so good”
Guaranteed to put a smile on your face and remind you that it’s a new dawn and a new day… feel good.
