Feeling Good!

A new week full of challenges. Like any other person I have my highs and lows, I worry and struggle too, but I am happy with my chosen path. To speak with Edith Piaf "Je ne regrette rien".  There are many songs I can relate to. Here are the lyrics of Nina Simone's "Feeling good! The movie was kindly put together by Domina Ball. Wishing you all an inspiring week!

Birds flying high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Breeze driftin' on by you know how I feel


It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good

Fish in the sea you know how I feel

River running free you know how I feel
Blossom on the tree you know how I feel


Dragonfly out in the sun you know what I mean, don't you know

Butterflies all havin' fun you know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done
That's what I mean

And this old world is a new world

And a bold world
For me

Stars when you shine you know how I feel

Scent of the pine you know how I feel
Oh freedom is mine
And I know how I feel
