The current soundtrack or playlist of my life- my top 8 in heavy rotation

I sort of chuckled to myself as I was writing the title because I wondered if using the term soundtrack was outdated. Kind of like talking about records and tapes instead of CD's, it's a new day and a new era. Oh well you know what I mean, Music!

Last week I posted about Track One on my mental soundtrack and why it was playing in my head through out the week. Well I decided to share a few more of the songs in my soundtrack. Go through my list and tell me if you feeling it too.

Current Soundtrack, er-uh, play list of my life
Track 1. Keep on moving *Soul II Soul
Track 2. All of the lights *Kanye West & friends
Track 3. In a sentimental mood (the Love Jones song, although beautiful long before the movie made it popular) *John Coltrane
Track 4. Encourage yourself *Donald Lawrence & the Tri-City Singers
Track 5. Smile *Kirk Franklin
Track 6. Three little birds *Bob Marley
Track 7. Moment for life *Nikki Minage
Track 8. Lose my mind! * Busta Rhymes

Keep on moving, don't stop like the hands of time !: Track one in the soundtrack of my life

It's our time
time today
the right time is here to stay

Stay in my life
my life always
yellow is the colour of sunrays
I hide myself from no one
I know the time will surely come... "

Those are part of the lyrics to the song by Soul II Soul and it is currently playing in my head.
It plays in my head at any given time during the 5 days that I am in school. I love it when I am there and I am excited by what I learn and am eager to apply it to the "real world" but It is hard for this woman to get there some days! I mean, the 6:40 am hour drive can be pretty daunting. And If I don't get my coffee? I'm jus' sayin' - IT'S AND AUTOMATIC SITUATION, lol!

But through it all I am realizing and learning more and more that I am not in this alone. As I am walking through the halls and working in treatment rooms I am finding myself in the company of some phenomenal women. I am hearing their stories listening in amazement as I study with women learning to reinvent themselves, triumphs over self hate and abuse, determination to start businesses and passions for helping others to make a transformation in mind body and spirit. Through the various interchanges of success and failures I drive home in heavy contemplation because I am encouraged and in awe. Some of my classmates are fresh out of high school, some already have degrees and licenses in other fields and you have ladies like me who have not had this length of schooling in 20 years. Either way, it all spells sacrifice.

With so much inner beauty surrounding me, I have to keep with the standard. Listen to track one and remember that my goal is not too far ahead. Four more months and counting. I think I can see the horizon a little bit clearer now...#winning

Wordless Wednesday : spring is in the air, time for new beginnings.

This is a bird nest that we found in one of our shrubs. Two baby birds just hatched out of their eggs. *awwww*
