The Courage to Change is my current favourite song.

I have almost always been a fan of the artist P!nk, though I did miss out on her recent tour. She was in Vancouver twice over the last year, but tickets were just too expensive. I didn’t realize that she released a new album and I’ve been listening to it almost every day since I discovered it!

The song that has resonated with me the most off of the album, Hurts 2B Human, is called Courage.

Have I the courage to change?

Repeating these words over and over to myself during tough times and even tougher conversations is what got me through. It has been a long time since a song had that sort of deep impact on me.

I’m not willing to go back to old ways. I have evolved as a person and accepted the change in my discovery of who I truly am.

Writing a book has been so healing for me. It has never been about anyone else. Except maybe Rachael, but only because I want to tell her everything.

I hear the opening notes to this song, feel the piano grieve with me, and I almost cry.

Sowing the seeds of love and hope, love and hope.

We don’t have to stay, stuck in the way

Have I the courage the change?

The answer is yes. With force. Abandon. No looking back.

There is hurt. And that’s not what I intended.

Change is necessary.

And I have the courage.

I don’t have to do this perfectly.

I have the courage to change,

Anya
