I love her new song, Raise Your Glass. I know it's a party it up song, but the message to me is live your life, live it out loud, and have fun.
I have so learned how to do that in this program. I think a lot of it can be attributed to becoming honest and finding out who I truly am, allowing myself to have my own dream about what is right for me in my life, and realizing that I really don't have to spend time worrying about other people's judgements of me because I can let them have their dream. (Four Agreement stuff...outside literature, but one of the most life changing books I have read, outside of the Big Book, of course).
So, the line from the song that inspired this post for me is..You can choose to let it go. The fear, other people's behavior and judgements, the past, the future, resentments...none of it has to occupy space my mind. I can surrender it to the universe and get back to my favorite place to be...that space of peace and serenity, where I am happy, joyous, and free!!
