sunsetw-1012477_1280I borrowed this idea from the site Inspired PromptVisiting 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 HeroI 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?
