Power Dress

“Looks like a girl, but she’s a flame. So bright, she can burn your eyes. Better look the other way. You can try but you’ll never forget her name. She’s on top of the world. Hottest of the hottest girls say, oh, we got our feet on the ground, and we’re burning it down. Oh, got our head in the clouds, and we’re not coming down.” - Alicia Keys

I remember walking to work on a Friday morning listening to Alicia Keys 'Girl On Fire'; it had been such a long work week and I was so tired yet happy I was finally about to conquer the long haul.  I'm sure many of us have had that same feeling hence why they coined the term TGIF!  While humming the words headed to the office I was overcome with this crazy energy and determination feeling like I was about to get a lot accomplished that day.  

It's awesome how something can make you feel like you can accomplish anything. So let's fast forward. I have a lot of changes that have come about and for once in my life I am managing it all: my family, spiritual obligations and my career. I can honestly say that they are all being balanced well.  Being that I have this new found energy I thought I better enjoy the ride, so I put on my favorite dress.

Does anyone else have that one thing that makes them feel like they are in control? It could be anything really: a pair of shoes, an outfit or a song (and by the way Beyonce '6 inch' has been on repeat *wink*).
