The Best is Yet to Come
Kai's SONG OF THE WEEK: "'The Best is Yet to Come'" is a 1959 song composed by Cy Coleman, with lyrics by Carolyn Leigh. It is associated with Frank Sinatra, who recorded it on his 1964 album It Might as Well Be Swing, accompanied by Count Basie, under the direction of Quincy Jones. It was the last song Sinatra sang in public, on February 25, 1995, and the words "The Best is Yet to Come" are etched on Sinatra's tombstone. Though Sinatra made it popular, the song was actually written for and introduced by Tony Bennett. "(Wiki) (Lyrics)
I'm listening to Nancy Wilson's version (Nancy Wilson is one of my favorite jazz vocalist FYI):
It is important to be present allowing yourself to feel everything that is happening in this moment and in this place/space. I believe those things because there is something to be learned from every situation and sometimes we find ourselves making the same mistakes because we don't take the time to be still in uncomfortable places. I am being still—listening and feeling all that is within me. But I know that for me, the best is yet to come. Faith is what has kept me strong in difficult moments, the dream that some elsewhere is possible here.
Here are some of my declarations for this week:
*Changes and transitions are more graceful as I cooperate with them.
*I let go of control without losing control.
*I never fear my own truths, powers, fantasies, wishes, thoughts, sexuality, dreams, or ghost.
What are some of your declarations or affirmations that you will hold on to this week? Please share:-)
