I recently started (again) the couch to 5K app and am on week 4. One of my favorite things about that app are the nice things it says to you throughout your 34 minute walk/run.
“Hey Awesome runner, you’re doing great!” or
DING “You’re half way there” and, finally my super favorite:
“Keep going, you’re worth it!”
Wouldn’t it be nice if we had an app like this for life. Right at that moment when you are feeling most defeated or weary of the emotional rollercoaster that can sometimes be your life, you would magically hear a little DING and then “Keep going, you’re worth it”
This is what I hope my songs are for some people. Music has certainly been that for me – a message from beyond saying, hey keep going, you’re worth it.
On this day May 17, I am feeling particularly grateful for all the times I heard “Keep going, you’re worth it” whether inside my own being or from the many friends and family I am blessed to have.
Today is the 9 year anniversary of my mom’s death and it does feel like some kind of completion for me. Since her passing, I have written many songs and released 3 CD’s. For this, I am incredibly proud and also am looking forward to all that is coming. In honor of this day and my mother, who was without a doubt one of the most important parts of me becoming the songwriter I am, I offer this song, Thy Will Be Done. I rarely perform it live, so you may not have even heard it.
Ps. KEEP GOING, YOU”RE WORTH IT!
