My Inspiration

In 2014, Jo_Goldsmith11 took it upon herself to initiate the Light2Love Project Good Words.

Jo pledged to use good words and publish articles used to empower, encourage, support and defend those who need to be shown love.

Jo offered us a good word for each week to focus our thoughts, behaviors and actions on...In the 4th week, Jo wrote her perspective on the word energy.

However, as 2014 came to an end, Jo filed away her Good Word articles - as she begins the process of publishing it in e-book'. Shyron E. Shenko continues to write a beautiful poem to accompany each Good Word to inspire and lead us.

The ripple effect of the Good Words Project throughout the HubVille community has been heartwarming.

Please join me with some of my musical thoughts and reflections on the word energy...

Energy in Music

Have you ever listened to music that made you jump to your feet and start dancing...??

Have you ever just sat in a chair and rocked your body to the rhythm of a song, tapping your feet, clapping your hands or clicking your fingers...

Are you of a predisposition to play air guitar or magical drums on your steering wheel when that song hits the radio?

I am clearly one of those people energized by music. With a song in my heart, I wake up and hit the ground running- usually no matter what kind of day I've had before.

It's easier to keep moving, whether around the house, walking or doing an aerobic activity with this ensemble of energetic lyrics and music that I have grown to love over the years as well.

This is a mere sampling, as any music lover can imagine ...♥ I got really excited about these song choices, very hard to narrow down actually. Rodrigo Y Gabriela are fairly new in my musical library, while I selected some classics for us baby boomers as well!

Are there any songs or lyrics that bring ENERGY and motivation to these do for me? If so, please share YOURS in the comment section below... thanks, mar!

Energy in Lyrics

Don't you wanna dance (dance) with me baby? (1)... Put on your red shoes - And dance the blues (2)... We're going to party - Karamu, fiesta, forever - Come on and sing along! (3)... You got to breath and have some fun - Though I'm not paid I play this game - And I won't stop until I'm done (4)...

Lenny Kravitz: Are You Gonna Go My Way

Lyrics of Energy

But it's all right now, in fact it's a gas (5)... Come over baby well, we got the bull by the horns - We ain't fakin' (6)... May your path be the sound - Of your feet upon the ground (7)... I get up, and nothing gets me down - You got it tough. I've seen the toughest around - And I know, baby, just how you feel - You've got to roll with the punches to get to what's real (8)...

Van Halen: Jump

Lyrical Energy

Keep on with the force don't stop (9)... There's somethin' wrong with the world today - The light bulb's gettin dim - There's meltdown in the sky (10)... Buddy you're a young man hard man - Shoutin' in the street gonna take on the world some day (11)... There comes a time when we heed a certain call - When the world must come together as one (12)...

Rodrigo Y Gabriela: Tamacun (Watch all 7-minutes!)

Passing the Baton of Energy

John Hansen (Jodah) is a writer I met through my good friend Shauna Bowling (bravewarrior).

In John's own words: "I like to call myself a poet, but that's up to the readers of my work to decide....Just trying to do my little bit to lessen my footprint on our precious Earth and hopefully encourage others to try to become as self-sufficient as possible."

If you've not had the opportunity, I have included some links below that highlight John's energy, diversity and talent as a writer. He has many others worth checking out as well...

And now I would like to pass the baton of the Project Good Words to you, John, with the word of energy.

Thanks ever so much, Maria
