Remember the show Ally McBeal from the late 90s? I LOVED it. I loved that she was a strong, but super flawed, woman out to conquer the big bad world on her own. But I also hated her. She needed to get over her issues with the ex-boyfriend and move on. She could also be super sappy. But then again, what woman isn't at times??? Perhaps I was afraid I was too much like her...
There was a pivotal episode where I realized that the quirky show was right up my alley (pun intended). Remember when her counselor (Tracey Ullman!) recommended she have a theme song? All of a sudden, she could hear the words, and feel the beat, to I Know Something About Love/Tell Him...sometimes it was slow and sad, and sometimes it was upbeat. But it was always hers and once she owned it, it gave her a purpose.
I've never been one for a "favorite song" or a having an "our song" with a special boy. I usually just listen to the dribble on the radio. Lately, when I need a boost, I like to get sassy to these songs and in college, before a big night on the town, my sorority sisters and I "cat-walked" to this insanity. But not long ago, I heard the greatest song on the radio and KNEW instantly that it would be MY theme song.
As a single woman, I haven't given up on love or married my career. I haven't given up on hope that Mr. Right is out there, either. I think it's hard for for many of the happy couples around me to figure me out. Sometimes they look at me with the "what is wrong with her" or "what is wrong with guys" quizzical look. Sometimes, they assume that I'm sad and depressed and sometimes they see me happy as a clam. Regardless, I think they sometimes assume that I've given up on love and romance...HOWEVER, I aint givin up on it, yet!!! I still LOVE cheesy romance novels, sappy rom-coms, and yes, romantic songs.
I finally found the perfect romantic song for singles...and you know what?!?! I'm claiming it as my theme song! It's filled with HOPE, excitement, and even love for the unknown. It makes me happy, puts a smile on my face, and reminds me that HE'S OUT THERE!!!
So, please enjoy it with me today. Let it be exciting for you, too! If you're in a happy relationship, listen to the song and remember what it felt like when you met your someone special!!! Or at the very least, let Michael Buble's dreamy voice sing you a happy song!
So, what about you? Do you have a theme song for you life??? Wanna borrow mine for a while??? Don't worry, I'm happy to share. : )
Oh, and PS (if you clicked on the links above), I have one more thing to say: ZIG A ZIG AH!
