To err is human; to forgive, divine.
We’re gonna do them anyway! That slice of cake. Skipping the gym. Losing our temper. Some actions that lead us to dark places. Over-achievement, overcompensation and imbalance.
I listened to an extended mix of a few female singer-songwriters yesterday
right now actually but you won’t read this until tomorrow. As you know, we women like to discuss our relationships – especially when it comes to l-o-v-e.
We all want it. How we get it and whether it’s good enough to keep drives us
crazy. There are a few voices out there that capture certain vibes I relate to in certain ways at certain times.
For example, I needed to hear Fiona Apple’s song Shadowboxer. I can’t believe this song is 16 years old or that she was writing such insightful lyrics as a teen, but sometimes life impacts us in ways that clamors for expression.
As women we must find and use our voices. Our experiences and life lessons can help each other. Our human existences are unique, but most of our needs are the same. Until we decide we’re worthy of more, let go of fear, change our minds or focus on healthier obsessions we’ll experience life regurgitating itself for lessons on repeat. Or we’ll see it coming a sidestep folly. If we had it together 100% of the time we’d be ‘perfect’. How boring!
I could just as easily post a variety of artists, but what musical constructive womanly wisdom speaks to you?
