Design X challenge

Thursday, May 7, 2009

I love the Design Experiment challenge blog and I don't get to play along as much as I'd like but this week's challenge really spoke to me.
Here's the challenge:

Music plays a big part in everyone's day whether it is intended to or not. Is there a song that's stuck in your head at the moment? Why? What significance does it have in your life?

Lately I've had a couple of disappointments with Design Teams and the constant struggle I have with my weight. It's so hard to look at myself in the mirror right now but I know I can win this uphill battle. I was listening to some music online a few weeks back and came across a Miley Cyrus song called The Climb. Now since my daughter is too young for Miley I normally wouldn't have been interested but the words struck my soul and just listening to them made me cry. The song said everything I was feeling and I know it was God's way of telling me I can do this! I just have to believe it and believe in me. What an empowering song! Here's a link to the words if you'd like to check it out.
So I scrapped my layout for the challenge based on how the song spoke to me
"I gotta keep trying, gotta keep my head held high..."
It's also Hip Hop @ Unity so head on over here and check out what Angela's got in store for us today! I love Thursdays!

Shemaine, Oh hun, I so feel what you're going through. I have been so frustrated before, and still am at times. It's not a nice feeling. I have faith in you, and know you'll start to perk up! That song is beautiful by the way, as is the LO!

Oh Shemaine, you keep that head up! What a wonderful LO. Love the words to that song, thanks for the link!

Shemaine, you did an amazing job. I love the LO and that song and love what you did with it. I hope your recent frustrations are backed up with good things and relief!
