"Just let the words fall out..."

This just makes me feel good. Like, good on the deep down inside and underneath my skin good. Sara Bareilles is a “repeat” regular in my iPod and her voice always sends me off to someplace brighter. "Brave" takes me everywhere. Everywhere and anywhere I've ever hesitated. The people in this video are so freeeee. So brave. Makes me want to dance around in silly circles and flap my arms like a weirdo, too. And especially makes me want to not care who knows it. In the meantime though, I'm just snapping my fingers from side to side and bouncing my shoulders up and down and sharing this with you so you can do the same :) You can choose to be in a cage and swallow your words, OR you can let your hair down and "say what you wanna say." Choice is ours. (I love this song and video so much, that if I don’t stop talking about it I most likely never will stop.)

If you want to feel like a bird and be happy today (I mean...what crazy person doesn't?), probably you should watch this.

ps: where was I when she shot this video??! Next time ;) 


  1. "Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
    Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
    Show me how big your brave is

    Say what you wanna say
    And let the words fall out
    Honestly I wanna see you be brave"

    It's on repeat since half an hour, is there anything else I can say?!

    It's beautiful.

    Just be brave enough to be you :)

    1. AHH you made my day :) I'm so happy you love it as much as I do.

  2. Oh wait...

    I love these words even more. They fit so perfectly...

    Innocence, your history of silence
    Won’t do you any good
    Did you think it would?
    Let your words be anything but empty
    Why don’t you tell them the truth?

  4. Wow, I love it, thank you SO MUCH for the tip! It definitely made me smile and also made me feel that little silly, happy, positive feeling inside me... Not sure how exactly to explain it! And it also set me on the brighter path today. Gonna try to be a little braver for everyone shy out there!

  5. PS: This song turned out to be also a little bit dangerous (read: way too catchy)! I almost burnt down my lovely baked potatoes which were in the oven while I was listening and watching that video :D!!
