It was beautiful. One of my husband's former students plays the cello, and that's why we went. It was fun to see him up there, making something magical.
But I digress. The last song they played was from the movie Hercules. Go the Distance.
Seriously, a Disney movie song?
Yeah, okay, it pretty much reduced me to tears.
Not because it was brilliantly arranged or performed. In fact, other pieces were more moving. Yet I wasn't all misty-eyed.
I was emotional because of the message of the song. As soon as I got home, I looked up the lyrics (cuz even though the Disney Channel is a staple around here, I don't have the words memorized. Believe it.)
I can go the distance
I will find my way
If I can be strong
I know ev'ry mile
Will be worth my while
When I go the distance
I'll be right where I belong
I love those words. They are so true for me and my publishing journey.
What do you think? When you go the distance, will you be right where you belong? Is every mile worth your while?
I think I will be. And I think it is.
