Be Bold Enough

Be bold enough to use your voice,

brave enough to listen to your heart,

and strong enough to live the life you’ve imagined.

Dance In The Rain

“Life isn’t about waiting

for the storm to pass,

it’s about learning

to dance in the rain.”

She Decided to Start Living the Life She Imagined

Listen

Oh, the time has come for my dreams to be heard
They will not be pushed aside and turned
Into your own all ’cause you won’t
Listen

Listen, I am alone at a crossroads
I’m not at home in my own home
And I’ve tried and tried to say what’s on mind
You should have known

You should have listened, there is someone here inside
Someone I thought had died so long ago
Oh, I’m screaming out and my dreams’ll be heard

I may be a little late to the party, but I finally watched Dreamgirls this weekend.  Wow.  I really get drawn into movies when I watch them.  I always have.  And I love musicals.  Put those things together and I am hooked!  I watched it twice this weekend.  I now know what all the fuss was about.  Jennifer Hudson was amazing.

And then near the end of the movie Beyonce sang “Listen”.  It was SO powerful.  The scene from the movie was even better than the video I found on youtube.  Anyone else see Dreamgirls?  Love it?

I can totally relate!

Listen – Beyonce

Listen to the song here in my heart
A melody I start but can’t complete
Listen to the sound from deep within
It’s only beginning to find release

Oh, the time has come for my dreams to be heard
They will not be pushed aside and turned
Into your own all ’cause you won’t
Listen

Listen, I am alone at a crossroads
I’m not at home in my own home
And I’ve tried and tried to say what’s on mind
You should have known

Oh, now I’m done believing you
You don’t know what I’m feeling
I’m more than what you made of me
I followed the voice you gave to me
But now I’ve gotta find my own

You should have listened, there is someone here inside
Someone I thought had died so long ago
Oh, I’m screaming out and my dreams’ll be heard
They will not be pushed aside on words
Into your own all ’cause you won’t
Listen

Listen, I am alone at a crossroads
I’m not at home in my own home
And I’ve tried and tried to say what’s on mind
You should have known

Oh, now I’m done believing you
You don’t know what I’m feeling
I’m more than what you made of me
I followed the voice you gave to me
But now I’ve gotta find my own

I don’t know where I belong
But I’ll be moving on
If you don’t, if you won’t

Listen to the song here in my heart
A melody I start but I will complete

Oh, now I’m done believing you
You don’t know what I’m feeling
I’m more than what you made of me
I followed the voice you think you gave to me
But now I’ve gotta find my own, my own

“Broken down relationships can really break down a woman.”

.

“Decide today that you are worthy.
Because you are. Worthy. You may not feel like it. But a quick glimpse at Psalm 139 assures me, you are. And I’d rather depend on the solid truth of God than the roller coaster of fickle feelings.
You are beautiful and captivating and attractive and smart and capable. But if you are in a relationship full of unmet expectations, unresolved issues, and frustrating communication, I suspect you feel a little less than all I’ve described.
Broken down relationships can really break down a woman.
So, today breathe. Steady yourself. Keep your eyes on the Master.”

God knows what I need to hear.  Of course he knows.
