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,
