Big strong girl

I got home from seeing my therapist today and decided to pretend that everything’s okay, because it was before, and it will be again.  I made a cup of tea, took a small dose of my new medicine, started a new playlist, and began cleaning what I felt like cleaning.  This is grounding.

This song came on just as I was telling a friend that I’m going to be okay, and I think that that is amazing.

Deb Talan – Big Strong Girl

it’s not now or never
it’s not black & it’s not white
anything worth anything
takes more than a few days
& a long, long night

don’t push so hard against the world
you can’t do it all alone
& if you could, would you really want to?
even though you’re a big strong girl,
come on, come on, lay it down
the best made plans
come on, come on, lay it down
are your open hands

rest your head
you’ve got two pillows to choose from
& a queen size bed
hold out for the moon
don’t expect connection anytime soon
feel the light caress your fingertips
you have just begun
the word has only left your lips
maybe in time, you will find
your arms are wrapped around the sun

don’t push so hard against the world, no, no
you can’t do it all alone
& if you could, would you really want to?
even though you’re a big strong girl,
come on, come on, lay it down
the best made plans
come on, come on, lay it down
are your open hands
are your open hands
