Choosing a song

Monday night I attended a networking meeting with The Long Island Center for Business and Professional Women (  I enjoy these meetings, speaking to other women and men (yes, we have male members) to start new professional relationships.  At each meeting we have a speaker and the speaker this month was Gail Blanke.  Gail is the author of the book "Throw Out Fifty Things"  ( and is an amazing motivational speaker. She spoke of letting things go, physically and emotionally.  There was one thing she said that really struck me.  She said we all need a song. A power song.  One that will (in Gails words) "intensifies your courage, reminds you of how good you are, and of the fact that you are one-of-a-kind and throughly unstoppable"

I don't sing well, but I like to sing and I've decided I want a song. There are so many good ones to choose from. Tina Turner's "Simply the Best", Katy Perry's "Fireworks", The Pretender's "I'm Special" or Bon Jovi's "It's My Life"?  Those are only the ones that are at the top of my head.  I think I'll spend the weekend listening to music and choosing my song. Will anyone join me?  How about sharing your choices?
