Motivation Monday! What's your Theme Song?

Do you remember the 90's tv show, Ally McBeal? It was a quirky show for sure. One of the things I remember about it though was that Ally always had a "theme song". A song that represented her life at any given moment.

What would your theme song be?

I change my theme song every so often depending on what is going on in my life. I also change my favorite color every so often. It's part of the reason why I don't want to get a tattoo... what if my motto changes?

At one point, I thought about getting a 13.1 (Half marathon) tattoo. But what if I do more than 13.1 one day? Will I regret having the 13.1 when I could have the new accomplishment instead? Why limit myself.

Ok, back to theme songs. It occurs to me that a theme song should be more aspirational... helping you aspire to greater things rather than a commentary on how things are right now.

A song could be a kind of prayer in a way and certainly a Hymn would be an awesome theme song. Maybe I need different theme songs for different things. Like the theme from the Rocky movies for when I'm running. The song, "Dream On" from Aerosmith just popped into my head, I wonder if I should try that theme song for a few weeks and see if it fits.

In a theme song, lyrics are really important. Maybe I need a "Dream On" tattoo.
