Rihanna – Umbrella (ft. Jay-Z)
Life sometimes feel like we are going through things alone. One of things that I realize is that we sometimes push people away to as the fear of vulnerability and the fear of getting hurt is what keeps us from the getting the support you need. It’s those who stand by our sides through thick and thin, with no judgement and never taking things personally that are the one’s we must let in.
In my small group, I have two best friends that have been inspiration and someone I always wanted to aim to be like. Truth is, they conditioned me to be humble, calling me out on my BS and kept their distance when I would be out of line. But the rain would come down. Somedays harder than most, the reality is that in the end we always shined together. Because without these two remarkable women who knew me as an “ugly duckling,” see me become a “black swan,” who finally came to her senses and became the “beautiful swam” she was meant to be. But to be able to turn into the firey Pheonix I was meant to always be; wouldn’t be a my greatest moment without them. Which is why today’s song of the day is Rhianna’s “Umbrella.”
