In a world that sometimes goes dark and evil
You wonder where to find inspiration.
The best part is that it is all around :
The simple people will often take you by surprise
By touching lives and small acts of kindness
And there are wonderful people always sharing inspiring stories
Of chasing dreams and making a difference
Of inspiring parents and friends that care
But the best inspiration is found
In quiet times and reflective days
Deep within yourself.

Over the last few days, I’ve been focusing on women and issues of midlife women, as part of The Write Tribe Festival of Words. I have showcased some pretty awesome midlife bloggers too. Today I found this brilliant song – which seems to fit in so well with my theme and I just had to share it with you. Enjoy!

Part of the lyrics of May I Suggest

There is a world
That’s been addressed to you
Addressed to you, intended only for your eyes
A secret world
Like a treasure chest to you
Of private scenes and brilliant dreams that mesmerise
A lover’s trusting smile
A tiny baby’s hands
The million stars that fill the turning sky at night
Oh I suggest
Oh I suggest to you
Oh I suggest this is the best part of your life

There is a hope
That’s been expressed in you
The hope of seven generations, maybe more
And this is the faith
That they invest in you
It’s that you’ll do one better than was done before
Inside you know
Inside you understand
Inside you know what’s yours to finally set right
And I suggest
And I suggest to you
And I suggest this is the best part of your life

No matter what age you are, this is the best part of your life – if you see it as such!
