There’s this song

by India Arie I used to love before tyra took it and put it on the opening and closing credits of her talk show… I just love these lyrics though, and they ring so true to me.

 

Just for today

 

“Just for today
I will not worry what tomorrow will bring 
I’m gonna try something new and walk through this day
Like I’ve got nothing to prove
Although I have the best intentions
I can’t predict anyones reactions
So I’ll just do my best
I’ll put one foot in front of the other
Keep on moving forward
And let God do the rest

I don’t know what’s gonna happen
That’s alright with me
I open up my arms and I embrace the mystery
I don’t know what’s gonna happen
That’s alright with me
I open up my arms and I embrace the mystery

Just for today 
I’m telling the truth like it’s going out of style
I’m gonna swallow my pride and be who I am
And I don’t care who don’t like it, yeah
I feel the fear but I do it anyway
I won’t let it stand in the way
I know what I must do
There’s no guarantee that it’ll be easy
But I know that it’ll be fulfilling
And it’s time for me to show improve

It’s okay not to know
Exploration is how we grow
It’s ok to not have the answer
Cuz sometimes
It’s the question that matters

I don’t know what’s gonna happen
That’s alright with me
I open up my arms and I embrace the mystery
I don’t know what’s gonna happen
That’s alright with me
I open up my arms and I embrace the mystery”
