I can hear at least 50% of you saying who is ELO? So at the risk of dating myself I will educate you younguns. Electric Light Orchestra is a band that has been around a long time and was very popular in the 1970’s and 1980’s. I fell in love with them when the movie Xanadu came out and this song was on the soundtrack.
I digress, so why does this song make me cry? Not too very long ago I woke up each morning with a sense of dread. Life was something that had to be managed, that I had to tread through carefully and I had an overall distrust of a new day. I had sadly spent most of my life being robbed of the joy and anticipation of a new day.
Today as I worked on my business, and I was enjoying my Flashback Friday playlist. I’m Alive came on. Immediately I became jazzed because I love ELO but then in one powerful moment I realized that for the first time in many years. I am so happy that I’m Alive.
I am building a business doing work that I adore, I am in charge of my inner critic, I enjoy moving my body without feeling like exercise is punishment, and am easily making better nutrition choices. I have dramatically changed my own money mindset and as Erin Stutland says “My Vision Is Clear”. My tool kit is stocked! I’m Alive..and I’ve arrived!
