“I like to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out there and kick ass.” – Maya Angelou
I thought of this while watching all of the ladies perform at the Superbowl yesterday. It’s always cool to see anyone achieving and going beyond their dreams; man, woman, girl or boy – young or old.
As an artist however, I felt especially proud, like a big sister, yesterday watching the diversity of each artist on the big stage at the Super Bowl 48. The soulful ‘America The Beautiful’ with Jennifer Hudson (made me teary, singing with the Sandy Hook Children’s Chorus; understanding the connection of the personal tragedies due to senseless gun violence to both), Alicia Keys singing at the piano for ‘The Star Spangled Banner,’ the dynamite entertainment force of Beyonce’s halftime performance; also using the moment to show her sisterhood with Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams reuniting Destiny’s child’s for the occasion.
Each of the artists – kicking ass in their own distinct way. Simply fabulous!
I can relate. Grab the lapels of life and kick ass – yes indeed!
Every day may not be perfect or meet our expectations. One of my dear friends once said “Every day can’t be lollipops and rainbows”, which is so true. Like you, I’m prone to my moods and challenges even when the sun is shining. We deal with disappointments, frustrations and so forth – but I’m a firm believer in counting blessings not woes. So, “LIVE” “LOVE” and most of all keep your sense of humor and “LAUGH” – it’s always good for the soul!
