Hey there! Summer semester is over *whew* I earned 2 A’s and 2 B’s so I’m happy. Last night I celebrated with my cousin. We had tacos, margaritas and then she fired up the Karaoke machine! Now I’m not one to belt out a tune BUT after a couple margaritas…..well, I was singing to my lil hearts content. Let’s be clear: I cannnnoooot sing but it felt good.
We ran through melodies by the likes of Xscape, EnVogue, Journey, Erykah Badu, TLC and many others but one particular song resonated with me by the lovely Whitney Houston: Greatest Love of All. Now, I know you’re like “Ruth, everybody knows that song!” but for some reason, singing it at the top of my lungs whilst watching the music video…I actually paid attention to the words. The chorus is what did it for me:
I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone’s shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I’ll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can’t take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all
COME THROUGH WHITNEY!
A love song to yourself. A reminder that YOU are valuable, precious, and worthy of love. *throws prayer cloth* *sigh* I think I will make this song a regular rotation. I may even come up with an inspirational CD!
