It’s my birthday and I’m Living My Life Like It’s Golden!
I’m taking my freedom, pulling it off the shelf, putting it on my chain, wear it around my neck. I’m taking my freedom, putting it in my car, wherever I choose to go it will take me far. I’m livin’ my life like it’s golden. Livin’ my life like it’s golden, golden …
Golden by Jill Scott is by far my favorite song. It’s such an amazing feel good tune that makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. I find all kinds of self-empowering messages in this song. Golden permeates my life so that it was blaring from the sound system when my new husband and I danced into our wedding reception. It’s the soundtrack to the way in which we choose to live this awesome and blessed life God has given us. Golden is essentially our life’s mantra. Our love is Golden.
UPDATE: In January 2017, Hallmark Mahogany introduced an exclusive new Jill Scott Greeting Card Collection that offers poetic sentiments, encouragement and lyricism. Scott said, “I was inspired by highlights within my own life – love, marriage, motherhood – in the writing behind these cards, and I am excited to be involved in a project that will give others another way to express their love to the people that matter most to them.”
At 44, I have found that growing up and maturity means being honest; honest about who I am, what I want and what I need. I also fully understand and acknowledge that we are accountable for the knowledge, resources and abilities that God has blessed us with. If we have been given much, then He expects that much more from us. Happiness, clarity, discernment; get you some. You won’t ever let it slip away! That’s called Living Your Life Like It’s Golden.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
