A fellow blogger shared this song on a recent post, and the lyrics really, really spoke to me. Not to mention the fact that the girl's voice is absolutely lovely, and the style is so chill and embraceable. (Also, she's so… "normal" looking, but still so attractive! That really speaks to me, as well as seeing that she is "large" but still beautiful. That comforts me as I struggle with body image as I get bigger.)

Who wants to get a bunch of balloons to hand out to strangers and make them smile with me? That looks like a really, really amazing thing to do. I'd like to tie affirmations to each balloon. I think that things fall into place just as they need to, and I bet that those affirmations will be just what needed to come into the life of whoever gets them.

Out on the open highway
Out in the open air
See the world move beneath me
Leaving without a care
I know just where I came from
But I don't know where I'll end
Only thing that I'm sure of
I'd do it all again

I found a boy I could love
Maybe I found a few
Even with best intention
They never followed through
If he could take my heart now
He'd put right in her chest
Thinking he'd have a girl
He finally could love best

And I'm gonna be fine, fine, fine
I'm gonna be brilliant

This year is gonna be better and you're gonna see
This year I'm gonna be stronger and a braver me
This year and I'm gonna make it 'cause I said I would
Do all the things you said I never could

This year x2

I may not be perfection
But I never claimed to be
Maybe if I was thin or beautiful classically
Of all of the things I carry
And all of the things I know
I know that I will be loved
No matter where I go

And I'm gonna be fine, fine, fine
I'm just gonna be different


This year x2

Maybe you're the kind who needs lights falling down
Maybe you're the kind who needs stars racing to the ground
Just to feel the things you wish for are coming true

Sometimes it's hard to get up
Maybe it's hard to speak
You think no one understands you
Feel like nobody sees
When the night's dark around you
With all of the things you've lost
Know that the hope inside you
Sometimes is worth the cost

And we're gonna be fine, fine, fine
'Cause we'll be together


This year 
(I'm gonna make it, gonna make my way back to you) x2
