A Breath Of Fresh Air

Well I couldn't resist posting about Susan Boyle from the television show Britain's Got Talent. I'm sure most everyone out there have heard about her because she has been in the media and has something like 35 or 40 million hits on You Tube.

I watch the video in the morning, in the afternoon and maybe once in the evening. For some reason, for me, this lady is a breath of fresh air ... even when people laughed and ridiculed her, she went up on stage and shocked everyone with her talent. Her goal was to sing and sing she did.

Here is a woman who could have failed miserably if the only thing on her mind was what people thought of her but instead she was so confident in her singing that she was not going to allow anything else to distract her and her one opportunity to sing in front of a large live audience.

There are so many lessons to be learned here ...

If you haven't seen the video, watch it ... it will lift your spirits.

When I went to get the code off You Tube to embed it here, I noticed, You Tube disabled it so I'm just going to include a link to the video ...

Amazing isn't see. Just goes to show you don't judge a book by its cover as everyone did. Amazing voice.
Hope your doing better.

An amazing woman indeed. Against the odds she has shown us all that you never judge a book by it's cover and having an open mind also allows you to have an open heart.

Yes, truly an inspirational story. I commented on another blog about this that I think it is sad that she, based on her looks, was automatically assumed to lack talent! Clearly, we think that only physically beautiful people are worthy of such a natural gift! Sad comment on society, isn't it!

I do wish this woman much success! She has the ability to inspire a nation.

Simon looked as though he had a good piece of "Humble Pie"

I hope she succeeds in what ever she does. An inspirational lady!

Yes, that video clip of Susan Boyle is inspiring.

You're right - my link to your blog was old. I'm glad to hear you're out of the hospital and are blogging still. I was a bit worried!

Hope you have a great week!

I have watched her over and over again. There is just something about that precious woman... She is a testament to a life lived for Christ.. She is a church goer they said......... But how God has blessed her beyond measure........

She sure is inspiring and I've watched the video many times, too! Her love for singing just glows when she starts to sing, and everything just comes from her heart, doesn't it???? I sure do hope she wins!
