You can do anything: some affirmation from Hedley #song #inspiration #affirmation

I’m celebrating a three-year anniversary of an epiphany today, so, in that spirit, kittens, here’s some Hedley:

Everybody said
You’d better stay in school
Get a real job boy
Don’t be a fool
Burn that guitar
You can never be a star
I can, I can, I can so
A thousand disbelievers couldn’t keep me on the ground
I’ve invented a momentum that’ll never slow me down
I believe it ’cause I feel it and I shout it out loud
I can, I can, I can so

This is my fucking anthem, people. Listen, and dance:

And what I’m celebrating is this: three years ago, I went to my first When Words Collide conference. (You can read my first anniversary celebration of its impact on me HERE.) If you’re in Calgary, come see there this weekend–I’ll be hanging out in the Merchants’ Corner or the bar 😉 most of the weekend, wit the Calgary Association of the Romance Writers of America, the Alberta Romance Writers Association, and the YYC Queer Writers peeps. Say hi. Buy a book. Ask me to dance. 😉 I’ll provide the soundtrack.
