The other night I was listening to Gwen Stefani's "What You Waiting For?" I love Gwen. She is a kick-ass woman who puts herself out there with her style and her lyrics. When I was listening to the song, even though I've heard it a million times before, I suddenly really heard the lyrics.
"Naturally I'm worried if I do it alone
Who really cares? 'Cause it's your life
You never know, it could be great
Take a chance 'cause you might grow"
"Like an echo pedal, you're repeating yourself
You know it all by heart
Why are you standing in one place?"
It turns out that the super-confident, larger-than-life Gwen Stefani had some hesitation about going for a solo career. She was also afraid. Something about that made me feel better. Something about that made me more comfortable with my own fear...
