Music Therapy with Miss Moon

The greatest loss of time is delay and expectation, which depend upon the future. We let go the present, which we have in our power, and look forward to that which depends upon chance, and so relinquish a certainty for an uncertainty.
~ Seneca

Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.
~ Oprah Winfrey

In the past few weeks, I've touched a bit on what I have been doing with my time since becoming a lady of leisure (translation: unemployed). The job market is iffy at best, which can make job searching a big old drag ... as opposed to the much smaller drag it normally is! LOL

I have chosen to not sit around and wallow and worry that there are not that many promising jobs, and the ones that are promising, haven't responded favorably to my application yet. I have chosen to let go of the fear and the worry and to instead focus my attention on something that will make me a much happier person: getting healthy, and in the process... lose some weight!

In the past few months, I have dramatically altered my diet, and as I've mentioned before, I have started to incorporate some exercise in the routine, by taking hour-long walks everyday. One of the benefits of living in Bed-Stuy is that many of the block are super long, which makes it a nice little work out when circling a block five times. I have expressed a desire to lose 35 pounds by my 35th birthday in November, and I don't know if that is truly a realistic goal, but it would be nice... and since I'm putting it out there, and putting in the work it involves, who knows? I'll just let go, hope for the best, and see what happens... which is, I believe the best way for me to proceed right now. Which leads me to my choice for Music Therapy with Miss Moon today.


I've been all about anthems lately, and I think that this song is the PERFECT one for letting go, mostly because the title and overall theme of the song is "Lettin' Go"! LOL I hope you all will enjoy the amazing Janelle Monáe!!
