Live Your Life Like Its Golden


If you haven’t heard of the beautiful Jill Scott you may want to take some time to explore her music. I’m a fan. This weekend I heard her hit from a couple years ago, “Golden” and thought it would be a nice way to help you get your week started in the right direction!

Jill Scott may have something here:

I’m taking my freedom
Pulling it off the shelf
Putting it on my chain
Wear it around my neck
I’m taking my freedom
Putting it in my car
Wherever I choose to go
It will take me far

I’m livin’ my life like its golden

I’m taking my own freedom
Putting it in my song
Singing loud and strong
Grooving all day long
I’m taking my freedom
Putting it in my stroll
I’ll be high-steppin’ y’all
Letting the joy unfold

I’m livin’ my life like its golden

I’m holding on to my freedom
Can’t take it from me
I was born into it
It comes naturally
I’m strumming my own freedom
Playing the god in me
Representing his glory
Hope he’s proud of me

I’m livin’ my life like its golden, because its important to me

Here are two sites with more positive information regarding heathy living, self esteem and body image:
