Misfit Magic

Theme for April: Take a Risk

Every so often I will hear a song that unlocks the door to a room I’ve kept closed and hidden from thought for years.  Kelly Clarkson’s Breakaway has lyrics that uncovered the little misfit girl I used to be, especially in these lines:

Trying hard to reach out
But when I tried to speak out
Felt like no one could hear me
Wanted to belong here
But something felt so wrong here
So I prayed I could break away

As my theme for April, I am going to

. . . take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway

Happy Julian Calendar New Year to everyone!

  1. I was just reminded of one of my favorite quotes this morning by another Blogger. Something to the effect of, “Ships are safe in harbor, but that’s not what they’re built for.” Without risk, there can be not growth. 🙂

  2. YAY! I worked with risk last month and today I came completely clean & honest with the man I am involved with about where I am in our relationship, what I want, and how – if at all – we want to continue. That thought would have terrified me a month ago. Now, I am ridiculously empowered (even though that word gets on my nerves!)

I'd love to hear from you
