Day 51 Happy Thoughts (Pride and Joy)

Posted by intrepidshe , in Happy Things 30 January 2014 · 82 views

Jan. 30, 2014 (Countdown Part II: 14 days to gynecologic exam):
 
I have felt a bizarre mixture of emotions today, mainly an amalgam I couldn't describe. But, as evening pushes toward bedtime I realize two of the feelings are pride, and joy. I am proud of myself for making it through the appointment. I am joyful for the support of everyone here.
 
So, my songs for today are:
 
"Kind and Generous" by Natalie Merchant (my dedication to you all - I never could have come this far without you)
 

 
"Listen to the Radio" by Nanci Griffith (to me this song represents the joy of escaping the oppression of society's expectations)
