No more hard times

Have you heard this song? I first stumbled across this beautiful version of this song years ago when I saw the movie Georgia. It's the story of two sisters who lead completely different lives. I loved the movie so much. It made me cry and while it was on cable all those years ago every time it was on I would stop what I was doing and watch it. Maybe because I have a sister and we are totally different it resonated. The thing that haunts me most about this movie is this song. I loved it then. i never really thought about it after I got off my cable movie kick, but I did think it was beautiful. One day about a year ago I was laying in bed, thinking - dwelling actually as I do have away of doing, and suddenly this song the chorus escaped from my lips. I could not stop singing it loudly and out of tune of course. I immediately jumped out of bed and said girl get this caca straight already! I went searching for it online listened to it and sang along for a good 15 minutes. I felt every little twang of Mare's voice. I allowed myself to feel how I felt in that moment... Some residual sorrow washed over me and then that was that. Mending mending mending. I began to begin again. But that time I really dug my heels into rewriting the beautiful story of me. The chorus of this song has become a little mantra. I have added it to my prayers it's what I say when I have a random Gemini moment and get down in the dumps. I find so much of the music I have always loved calls to me almost like there's a secret message or code the universe is trying to tell me. I like discovering how a song will leave me. The thoughts it puts in my brain. It equals the playing field. I'm not the only one come across hard times. I realized that day a year ago like I seriously realized that happiness is a choice and you must embrace it. When the caca comes banish it away. This song reminds me of the day I got my happy back.
