Music plays a big role in my life. My mother says I’ve sang my first song at two years old to the tune of Annie’s Tomorrow. I don’t remember this but I do recall that I love singing. Whether or not singing loves me back is something I cannot attest for. 😉
I consider my life as my own movie. And like any good movie, mine has its own soundtrack. Each memorable and significant moment has a corresponding music in the background. In my 34 years of existence in this world, I can list song after song that remind me of certain scenes, people, times in my life. Here are the three most important ones:
•Feels Like Home
If you knew how I wanted someone to come along and change my life the way you’ve done. Feels like home to me, feels like home to me. It feels like I’m all the way back where I come from… It feels like I’m all the way back where I belong.
The first time I heard this song from an old movie about the archangel, Michael, played by John Travolta, I told myself “this is how being with the right one will make me feel – like I have been lost and have finally found my way home.” And when I married my soul mate, that was the day I knew I was home.
• Angels Brought Me Here
My dreams came true when I found you, my miracle. If you could see what I see, that you’re the answer to my prayers. If you could see the tenderness I see, you would know, it would be clear that angels brought me here.
When I discovered my pregnancy, I was overjoyed. I wasn’t scared nor was I doubtful even when at the time, I wasn’t sure if I would be a single parent or not. The only thing that worried me was telling my parents since I still had one year left of law school. When Reisz came into my life, I knew that he would be my angel, that he would change my life for the better, that he was the answer to questions I didn’t dare ask God. He would always be my angel, my baby.
• The Climb
There’s always gonna be another mountain. I’m always gonna wanna make it move. Always gonna be an uphill battle. Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose. Ain’t about how fast I get there, ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side. It’s the climb.
There were a lot of struggles in my journey to get where I want to be and there were moments when giving up seemed like the easier thing to do. However, I would always remind myself that nothing worth dreaming of was easy and nothing great came out of fear. So here I am, still climbing, motivating myself that someday, somehow, I’ll be able to reach the top.
