When the river was deep
I didn’t falter
When the mountain was high
I still believed
When the valley was low
It didn’t stop me, no, no
I knew you were waiting
Knew you were waiting for me
This was a long post. But, I felt like I needed to share it somewhere. One song that has helped me to get out the funk was the 1986 duet by George Michael and Aretha Franklin, “I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me).” This song is actually a love song. But, like all love songs for me, I could translate it as self-empowerment song. Don7t these lyrics speak to you? They do for me.
“I knew you were waiting for me.” I can interpret “you” as the finish line or the results of reaching my goals. I know that through these hardships and failures that I am going to be stronger and will accomplish my goals if I try my best. I will work hard. I will get some job dealing with Japanese. I can enjoy Japan. I can enjoy living in a bilingual lifestyle. I can get my blog up and running with the possibility of monetizing. I will get a business coach. I will get through my money hardships. I will be the winner. I will be the victor.
Just be patient.
Because I knew you were waiting for me.
(Trivia: In Japanese, this song’s name is “愛のおとずれ” or “The Point of Love”.)
