Music Therapy with Miss Moon

"Every time you don't follow your inner guidance, you feel a loss of energy, loss of power, a sense of spiritual deadness."
~ Shakti Gawain

" I think of life itself now as a wonderful play that I've written for myself, and so my purpose is to have the utmost fun playing my part. "
~ Shirley MacLaine

" There is only one you for all time. Fearlessly be yourself."
~ Anthony Rapp

If I (God forbid!) were to die today, I hope sincerely that a major point that I've conveyed in writing Miss Moon's Musings is that it's okay to be yourself. As flawed and dorky as I am today, I am so much happier than the woman I was ten years ago... Who feared being shunned or misunderstood. Who feared being alone and branded an outcast, so she became the women she thought people wanted her to be.

When I started working on myself (Believe me, that's an on-going process!) in my mid-twenties, gradually the woman I am today starting emerging. And you know what? I lost a lot of people I considered "friends" in the process. They couldn't hang with the Audrey I was becoming, and that's cool.. because I didn't want to hang with anyone who could not support my growth and see it for what it was... a miracle.

The moment you choose to buck the system and say, "I'm going to do something wonderful and follow my heart", is the moment where you start to see the world clearer. And I recognized that people who wave their freak flags high are the people who make life more interesting. They are the people who truly inspire.. just through their example. They are people like you, and like me... and I think that it's time we celebrate being ourselves!


So this week's Music Therapy with Miss Moon is a celebratory song that I hope you all will enjoy. Here's Estelle (with some help by Janelle Monáe) with "Do My Thing"



hey hey hey hey
hey hey hey hey
hey hey hey hey
hey hey hey hey

i wear my clothes like this because i can
i wear my hair like this because i can
i walk around like this because i can
and i do my thing like this is who i am
if you are expecting me to give you an apology
for being nothing like you used to used to
hold your way hold your breath and concentrate
keep holding till your face turns blue

my burning, we just don't know just where i am going
my flow it ain't your flow,just i know, just how i'm flowing
i do my thing i do my thing
please feel free to hate everything
said ima do my thing
i do my thing i do my thing
say what you want cause this one ain't gonna change
i do my thing i do my thing
ha ha ha ha ha ha

i can't wear my clothes like you because i am not
i can't do my hear like you because i am not
i can't walk around like you because i am not
i can't do my thing like you well that just ain't hot
and if you are expecting me to give you an apology
for being nothing like you used to used to
i held your way hold your breath and concentrate
keep holding till your face turns blue

my road, it ain't your road, but just don't know just where i'm going
my flow it ain't your flow,just i know, just how i'm flowing
i do my thing i do my thing
please feel free to hate everything
said ima do my thing
i do my thing i do my thing
say what you want cause this one ain't gonna change
i do my thing i do my thing
ha ha ha ha ha ha

you don't know where i am going so you think i am lost
i ain't on your page, ok so to you that means i'm lost
when i am dancing i am dancing to the beat of a drummer you don't hear and you can't see
so if i look offbeat to you, well the problem must be you not me
irregular irrelevant unusual but never uncool
you're not call for my close
you never get me, i don't get you
either a believer of the fact
that unique equals love
so i won't go into the vast with you
open your mind and speed up

my road, it ain't your road, but just don't know just where i'm going
my flow it ain't your flow,just i know, just how i'm flowing
i do my thing i do my thing
please feel free to hate everything
said ima do my thing
i do my thing i do my thing
say what you want cause this one ain't gonna change
i do my thing i do my thing
ha ha ha ha ha ha
