I Am Full of Wonder (10/28/15)

I’ve been attending yoga classes at my favorite workout place, FitWit, over the past several months. Our instructor, Valentina,​ has the world’s best playlist to accompany her yoga classes. Every once in a while, she plays this song “Wonder” by Emeli Sande.

The lyrics strike me to the core:

“I can beat the night, I’m not afraid of thunder
I am full of light, I am full of wonder.

Whoa, oh I ain’t falling under
Whoa, oh I am full of wonder

Though our feet might ache, the world’s upon our shoulders
No way we goin’ break, ’cause we are full of wonder

Whoa, oh we ain’t falling under
Whoa, oh we are full of wonder

This light is contagious, go, go tell your neighbors
Just reach out and pass it on, ooh yeah”


I liked the song before I was diagnosed with breast cancer, but now, it’s my personal theme song. Every time I hear it, I get stronger.

For me, the song speaks to me sharing my story.  I’ve had sooooo many notes, texts, emails and phone calls of support and love because I decided to share what I’m going through.

Sharing my light has made me stronger. Every note, every hug, every kindness has helped. I feel every prayer and good vibe sent my way. It’s incredibly powerful.

If I hadn’t shared my story, I might have missed out on all this amazing support and energy. Thanks to each of you for that.

WE are full of light! WE are full of wonder!

This light is contagious, go, go tell your neighbors
Just reach out and pass it on!
