Monday Monster, part IV (and yes I had to double check the roman numerals, maybe I missed that lesson in elementary school?🤷) I've had trouble in the past being consistent with posting things, or sharing what I'm going through so I am proud of myself that I have posted 4 weeks in a row! It might not seem like much to others but for me, powerhouse moment! 💪

This weekend was  seriously incredible, it was filled with amazing, uplifting, empowering people that were so filled with love and support it just blanketed me in peace. Not only did I get to meet fabulous new friends but I got to hear from some seriously successful entrepreneurs! (and that's a word that makes me grateful for spell check!👏)

So related to all of that, I had heard the song, The Greatest Show from The Greatest Showman soundtrack in a spin class recently and I was like, 'this is a fabulous song, push-pull-push-pull, right-left-right-left-I've got this!!' (anyone who has taken a spin class knows what I'm talking about here)  ðŸš´ I honestly didn't see the movie because of the animal cruelty 🐘 aspect of the circus industry these days but this weekend the conference I was at had a bit of a theme and this song fit right in. If you read the lyrics below you can see that it highlights  freedom, dreaming, pushing forward and knowing nothing can stop you! This is only part of the song but if you watch this clip from where they perform it in the movie (and yes there are some non-English subtitles in there 🤷) it is mesmerizing and inspiring! 

The point of watching this clip basically shows what the movie was about; a place where people were allowed to be accepted, to be who they were without the judgement of outside society. (or at least that's what I took from it!) Sometimes we can feel like we don't quite belong where we are or wonder why we think so differently than others or just why do we feel so weird?! This jam basically says, 'go for your life-however you want it to be, dream big, live big and enjoy it!' There is a home for everyone, just find your tribe!! ❤️‍❤️ (I'm so blessed to have found mine, even if we're separated by many states now #dreamteam)

"Don't fight it, it's coming for you, running at ya
It's only this moment, don't care what comes after
Your fever dream, can't you see it getting closer
Just surrender 'cause you feel the feeling taking over
It's fire, it's freedom, it's flooding open
It's a preacher in the pulpit and you'll find devotion
There's something breaking at the brick of every wall that's holding all that you know,
So tell me do you wanna go?

Where it's covered in all the colored lights
Where the runaways are running the night
Impossible comes true, it's taking over you
Oh, this is the greatest show
We light it up, we won't come down
And the sun can't stop us now
Watching it come true, it's taking over you
Oh, this is the greatest show
Don't fight it, it's coming for you, running at ya
It's only this moment, don't care what comes after
It's blinding outside and I think that you know
Just surrender 'cause you're calling and you wanna go"

Top four things that brought me happiness on this Monday
