The Joy of Being Incomplete

I admit I am a HUGE fan of Alanis Morissette.  Odd since most of her lyrics are anything but happy However,I do love her voice and her lyrics. For me, her music expresses the struggles in dealing with life’s ups and downs.  The song “Incomplete” has been on repeat on my ipod for the past few days.

In keeping with the theme of: balancing the ideas of striving for more and gratitude for what we have, I am going to share the song and the lyrics.  I hope it speaks to you as much as it speaks to me. I love how she talks about all that she is striving for and ‘one day’ will achieve AND how the journey is the amazing rapturous part.  Striving, gratitude, seeking, presence, journeys and contentment are what Working Happier and Living Happier are all about!!

Lyrics:
One day I’ll find relief
I’ll be arrived and I’ll be a friend to my friends who know how to be friends

One day I’ll be at peace
I’ll be enlightened and I’ll be married with children and maybe adopt< I have been running so sweaty my whole life
Urgent for a finish line
And I have been missing the rapture this whole time
Of being forever incomplete

One day my mind will retreat, and I’ll know God and I’ll be constantly one with her night dusk and day
One day I’ll be secure, like the women I see on their 30th anniversaries

I have been running so sweaty my whole life
Urgent for a finish line
And I have been missing the rapture this whole time
Of being forever incomplete

Ever unfolding
Ever expanding
Ever adventurous and torturous
But never done

One day I will speak freely
I’ll be less afraid
And measured outside of my poems and lyrics and art
One day I will be faith-filled
I’ll be trusting and spacious authentic and grounded and whole

I have been running so sweaty my whole life
Urgent for a finish line
And I have been missing the rapture this whole time
Of being forever incomplete
