Bright Idea!

This song is a great follow up to my TEDx talk! Perhaps it is a great theme song in general for this blog and the daily commitment to treat all people with LOVE, DIGNITY and RESPECT!

Love is a bright idea

Love is a brilliant plan

I built my life around a bright idea

I built my life around the love that I've found

“Built my life around”... that means love at the centre, great words from this Canadian band, Mother Mother. You could also sing; “built my love upon” making love the foundation.

This is an awesome motivational morning song;

I woke up to a light bulb

Every little thing is possible

I woke up to a feeling

Every little thing has meaning

The song is really all about perspective. Every thing is possible and today is going to be amazing because I’m going to use my two hands, my own voice and my two feet to make it that way! I’m not waiting for love to find me, I’m out on the streets finding it every day and building my life around it. Reminds me of the quote, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” Let’s go out and do this love thing!

I must say though, I can get a little sceptical of people who sing/talk about walking to their own beat, because that can be rooted in selfishness. There can be a “I’m going to do whatever the heck I want no matter what anyone says and screw anyone who tries to stop me” attitude that goes along with it. That’s why the chorus of this song is so essential; it roots everything else in the centre of love. When I step out my door to face the world and create the type of world that I want to see, the core of that will be LOVE! Then, when I sing the song of my own choosing and walk to my own beat, it won’t just be about me, it will be about this BRIGHT IDEA! My whole life built on the foundation of love.

I don’t think we fully get (myself included) what a life of love really means. A life truly built around love is a life truly free. I like this song because it gives me a glimpse of that and encourages me, today, to get a little closer to that freedom.
