That I Would Be



"that I would be good even if I did nothing
that I would be good even if I got the thumbs down
that I would be good if I got and stayed sick
that I would be good even if I gained ten pounds
that I would be fine even if I went bankrupt
that I would be good if I lost my hair and my youth
that I would be great if I was no longer queen
that I would be grand if I was not all knowing
that I would be loved even when I numb myself
that I would be good even when I am overwhelmed
that I would be loved even when I was fuming
that I would be good even if I was clingy
that I would be good even if I lost sanity
that I would be good
whether with or without you"
Alanis Morissette

DAY 92:  The lyrics above are what I'm grateful for today.  I noticed the phrase "that I would be good even if ..." on a friend's Facebook profile this evening and it piqued my interest.  A quick Google search on the phrase led me to this simple anthem by Alanis Morissette that pretty much says it all ... self-affirmation, confidence, gratitude, self-esteem.  I've never been a big fan of Ms. Morissette having seen her perform live on some TV show (don't remember which one) and wondering "why is she so popular?"  But, I have to admit that I downloaded this song and LOVED it ... perhaps I'll have to listen to some more of her work.
