That I Would Be Good

Like yoga, music rejuvenates and inspires me. As if by divine intervention, I was reintroduced to this Alanis Morissette song a couple of weeks ago. I’ve listened to it at least once a day ever since. I love it for its ability to ground and center me. The self-affirming lyrics also serve as a reminder that everyone is inherently good and deserving of unconditional love even when I find their behavior challenging. Its mantra is exactly what I need to hear now.

What role does music play in your life? Do you have any go-to songs that help transform your mood?

That I Would Be Good

that I would be good even if I did nothing
that I would be good even if I got the thumbs down
that I would be good if I got and stayed sick
that I would be good even if I gained ten pounds
that I would be fine even if I went bankrupt
that I would be good if I lost my hair and my youth
that I would be great if I was no longer queen
that I would be grand if I was not all knowing
that I would be loved even when I numb myself
that I would be good even when I am overwhelmed
that I would be loved even when I was fuming
that I would be good even if I was clingy
that I would be good even if I lost sanity
that I would be good
whether with or without you
