A Brand New Me

When I haven’t been able to express how I’m feeling, music has always spoken for me. Just watch the Alicia Keys video called Brand New Me. I’m a little bit more personal with small revisions.

It’s been awhile, I’m not like I used to be, I’m just a brand new kind of me finding a new kind of free. It took a long, long road to get here, it took a brave person to try. Don’t be surprised if I talk a little louder, walk a little taller, I’m a little proud. If you notice I’m different, don’t take it personally. Don’t be mad, take the time to get to know me, you’ll be happy to see the Brand New Me. I’m just getting used to that, you know, the new freedom that she will never be perfect, but at least I’m brave. Now my heart is open to finally bring what I was meant to be.

Dr. Brene Brown says the middle is messy but it’s also where the magic happens. That’s true for me, and I’m waiting for more magic.
