I borrowed this idea from the site Inspired Prompt. Visiting authors are asked to select a theme song for their life. That inspired me to think of one song or tune that seems to sum up my life so far. My choice takes a bit of explanation, so if you don’t mind following me into the mists of time, come along.
Seventh grade was a very dark year for me. I hated school because I had no friends. Each school day was a trial. But I lived for Saturdays. Because at 1 p.m., I could settle down to watch reruns of The Greatest American Hero. I lost myself in that show, forgetting seventh grade for an hour. I loved the camaraderie of the characters. And I loved the theme song “Believe It or Not.”
I can’t think of a better song for me. Believe it or not, I became a mom after 35. Believe it or not, an introvert like me is allowing people to critique her writing and is telling professionals in the industry, “I know what I’m doing. I can write.” Believe it or not, God can use someone who cowers at the thought of talking to strangers or any kind of confrontation to venture into the world of publishing.
So what’s your personal theme song?
Sorry you had such a hard time in school. But that’s a great theme song. I’m glad you’re becoming fearless 😄
That’s so kind. And thank you for the inspiration!
Unknown Legends by Neil Young because whatever path a woman follows in life is legendary even if she is the only one that knows it.
I don’t know this song. I will have to listen to it. Thanks for stopping by!
