The morning day after I found out my husband was having an affair, I was in a car with 6 girlfriends headed to Paul Mitchel’s student hair salon for a story for a magazine I wrote for.
To say it was HORRID is an understatement. I didn’t want to trash my husband, I wasn’t yet angry, I was in shock and disbelief and cried the entire time. This could not be happening.
The shop was about 40 minutes away and the 7 of us sat in the car in uncomfortable silence – no one knew what to say to me. We listened to the radio and on the radio was the song by Pink “Just Give Me a Reason”:
Right from the start
You were a thief, you stole my heart
And I, your willing victim
I let you see the parts of me, that weren’t all that pretty
And with every touch you fixed them
Now you’ve been talking in your sleep oh oh
Things you never say to me oh oh
Tell me that you’ve had enough
Of our love, our love
Just give me a reason, just a little bit’s enough
Just a second we’re not broken just bent, and we can learn to love again
It’s in the stars, it’s been written in the scars on our hearts
We’re not broken just bent, and we can learn to love again
I’m sorry I don’t understand
Where all of this is coming from
I thought that we were fine (oh we had everything)
Your head is running wild again
My dear we still have everythin’
And it’s all in your mind…. (There’s more to this song…)
Right?? Tell meCrazy. We all cried. It was awful.
A few years later – after I figured out this whole MLC thing and how a shift takes you to new places, I did a bunch of radio shows.
Today – I just found a show I was on!! And I’m posting it here for you to listen. It’s on youtube but it’s just voices.
Take a walk and listen to the below. Personally – I think the host talks too much but (hahaha!) it is her show!! Dr Zoe Show – Redefining Your Superwoman. Which we know you need to get through this MLC bullshit!
