For at least the last 5 years I have had a theme song for my life, which was, How Did You Get Here, by Deborah Cox. This was my theme song because in so many instances I’d found myself in situations where I would be asking that question. Sometimes it was a relationship others a business decision or any other random thing that may have been going wrong. It was rarely compared to any of the many successes that I’ve had.
In the last couple of months I’ve found that I haven’t been hearing that song in my head anymore. The song that has taken its place is a gospel song called, Moving Forward. The opening lyrics to the song are…
I’m not going back…I’m moving ahead…I’m here to declare to you…My past is over…In you…Things are made new…Surrender my life to Christ…I’m moving, moving forward…
Even though I’ve always been very vocal about my relationship with God and yes this song is a gospel song this song being the new theme song for my life has to do not only with my always growing relationship with God but it also has to do with my new mindset on life as a whole.
At some point there was a change in me on how I viewed my life, relationships and the situations I found myself in. My entire perspective has become more positive. I’ve always been the one to practice what I preached but honestly it is not always easy being positive especially in a life as risky as mine where I am always taking chances with entrepreneurship, following a childhood dream or putting my heart on the line in love. Those risks can easily have you asking yourself, “How did you get here.”
Finally I am in a place where I can accept my journey and how I got to where I am today. I realize that everything that I’ve been through was necessary for where I am now and especially for where I am going. I understand that having imperfections actually make you perfect. The story of my life has become the foundation of my career as a writer and without that story then I have no idea where I would be today. I’ve learned so much! I have grown so much and continue to make major strides to becoming the woman I see in my dreams and now I know like never before the only way I will ever look at her in the mirror is to continue Moving Forward no matter what life throws at me, I’m not going back, I’m moving ahead…I’m moving, moving forward!
