What's Your Theme Song- An Ally McBeal Moment

Driving with Coco the other day I was thinking of that Ally McBeal episode with Tracy Ullman (her therapist) where she tells her about getting a Theme Song. She wanted to inspire confidence. Wanted her to feel her power. Wanted her to FEEL.

As I drove with Coco, listening to the Disney station on Pandora...it came to me. My theme song. I know it's corny but....

It's from Princess and Frog. There's something about it. I well up with tears. Here are the lyrics to "Almost there".

Mama! I don't have time for dancing!

That's just gonna have to wait a while
Ain't got time for messing around
And it's not my style
This old town can slow you down
People taking the easy way
But I know exactly where I'm going
Getting closer and closer every day

And I'm almost there, I'm almost there
People down here think I'm crazy, but I don't care
Trials and tribulations, I’ve had my share
There ain't nothing gonna stop me now ‘cause I'm almost there

I remember Daddy told me: “Fairytales can come true
You gotta make 'em happen, it all depends on you"
So I work real hard each and every day
Now things for sure are going my way
Just doing what I do
Look out boys, I'm coming through

And I'm almost there, I'm almost there
People gonna come here from everywhere
And I'm almost there
I'm almost there

There's been trials and tribulations
You know I've had my share
But I've climbed the mountain, I've crossed the river
And I'm almost there, I'm almost there
I'm almost there!

Oh the rivers and mountains I have crossed. I'm almost there!

What's your theme song? Tell me!
