I love my awesome collection of inspiring friends…today I got an email at work from a colleague friend who shared this beautiful song by Alanis Morissette with me. As I listened to it, I could hear a very special leader in my life saying to me: You don’t have to be good because you are already amazing. See what I mean about the people I am blessed to know and call my friends? 🙂

That I Would Be Good

Lyrics:

That I would be good
Even if I did nothing
That I would be good
Even if I got the thumbs down

That I would be good
If I got and stayed sick
That I would be good
Even if I gained 10 pounds

That I would be fine
Even if I went bankrupt
That I would be good
If I lost my hair and my youth

That I would be great
If I was no longer queen
That I would be grand
If I was not all knowing

That I would be loved
Even when I’m not myself
That I would be good
Even when I am overwhelmed

That I would be loved
Even when I was fuming
That I would be good
Even if I was clinging

That I would be good
Even if I lost sanity
That I would be good
Whether with or without you

Songwriters: MORISSETTE, ALANIS NADINE / BALLARD, GLEN
