Wordy Wednesday

Welcome to my first Wordy Wednesday post. Stop by my Blog every Wednesday for some "wordy" inspiration. Everything from my favorite words, journal challenges, using inspirational quotes in our scrapbooks, song lyrics, etc.

Today let's think about a phrase, that no matter how down we may be...lifts our spirits. Just by saying it out loud we find our heart swelling with possibility. I have a phrase that makes me feel like singing. In fact I can't NOT say it with out singing or wiggling or grinning from ear to ear. It comes from this movie...
Do you recognize it???  Pete's Dragon!

The phrase?  "Have a Brazzle Dazzle Day"...

This morning I woke up, still feeling under the weather (I have this annoying cough) and wishing I felt better. I got up to see my kids off to school when this song popped in my head. I started singing to my 15 year old Jackson "Have a Brazzle Dazzle Day" and dancing at the top of the stairs. Jacks just started laughing and shaking his head. But secretly I know he loved it:)

Now this may all sound super silly to you and you may be thinking to yourself  "Wow, this woman really needs to get out more. What a NuT." And ya' know what? I am a little nuts. But I'm happy nut. And anytime I can change my attitude for the better I do it.

{Even if it means singing a goofy little 70's tune from a movie about a boy whose best friend is a dragon.}

PS...Please tell me what your favorite phrase or song lyric is...the one that can lift you up!


  1. Great post, Les! Loving the music - all of the time! My most recent "Lyric of choice!" has got to be Black Eyed Peas and "I've Got a Feeling [that tonight's gonna be a good night]!" I just start singing, "I've got a feeling. . . " and I am instantly met with my girls finishing the sentence for me (guess I've been playing that song alot!) It totally picks me up and makes me want to move and helps me feel OH SO GOOD inside!!! Thanks for letting me share my moment with YOU! Love ya!

  2. Too funny!! I LOVE that song, too!!:)So much I bought it for my gym workouts and listen everday!! Oh, Leanne you and I would just be hanging out, chatting, watching the Wizard of Oz and hanging out if we lived in the same city.

  3. fantastic post!! I am hooked you are a very talented writer. Ok you wanna know what really lifts my spirits when I am in a MOOD, (don't laugh) i pop in an episode of gilmore girls and the witty banter makes it all better lol

  4. I like Miley Cyrus, it's the climb :) well, I'm actually getting sick of it now, but it was a song that I would sing like every day :) I also like Carrie Underwoods song So Small.
