This morning my inner critic came knocking. Usually I send her quickly to the corner and replace her scathing remarks with loving affirmations. Today, I said “Screw it!” and just let her talk. Let me tell you she was relentless. I was at the gym when she started in on me and in the middle of her rant the song “According to You” came on the radio. She preceded to steal some of the lyrics and spew them at me too.
Of course I couldn’t help myself and took some of the song and looked at it as a metaphorical example of my inward battle. The YOU in the song could be that little me, big ego, and inner critic that likes to keep me locked in fear and self-doubt. The HIM in the song could be the divinity within me reminding me that I am loved, perfect, and always welcome into his embrace. It’s up to me to choose who I give my power to.
Here’s the song by Orianthi. It is really just a song about two guys, but for me this morning it was a lot more. Oh, and this woman is pretty badass…talk about girl power!
