Its Green and its all mine!!



I just love this song and the simplicity of the video is simply enamoring and so captivating, not to mention the appearance of one of my favorite stars, Joke Silva, at various points in the video too. I am sure I've listened to this song over 40 times in the past week (no exaggerations) and believe me i don't have plans to stop.....This song does things to me. It tells me about hope in a world that seems hopeless; it talks to me about being and staying positive irrespective of whatever.

As i listened to the song again a couple of minutes ago, it occurred to me that a lot of times we always need someone or something to give us that lift or that pump to make us feel better, to encourage us, to show us the silver lining in the dark cloud, to boost our confidence. It doesn't always have to be. The truth is that lasting confidence , encouragement and a positive outlook to life can only truly come from within. What am saying is that, no matter how much of motivational speaking you expose yourself to (on a regular basis, even) , it may not make much difference until you find that place within you where only you can reach to and draw strength from...while all other sources become supplements.

By the way,Toyin Sokefun-Bello a.k.a T.Y Bello ( the owner of the song) is not only a musician, she also used to be (and still is) a make-up artist and a hair dresser. Her need to keep a good record of her works led her on to the path of photography (a male dominated field and one of my secret passions too). She is so gifted and making good use of the endowments she's been blessed with too. She is an inspiration in many ways..........To view the video of the song am so in love with at the moment, click in the link below:
