Still That Girl

Britt Nicole is a definite favorite of mine.

I’ve loved her since the first album and I anxiously await every new one since then.  (The latest came out last week and the album review is currently under construction!

My favorite track from this most recent album, “Gold”, is number 10 “Still That Girl”.  I’ve gone through a lot in my 23 years on this earth (biography to come soon) and this song was a refreshing reminder that I’m still “that” girl that I used to be and the girl I thought had been lost through a series of unfortunate events.  But last night, on my way home from an event with WBFJ, I came to a realization.

The girl this song refers to was a girl who can still be the one who wants to change the world.  But I realized there is another “that” girl out there.  I’m the other kind.  The other kind is the one who puts on a facade.  She paints herself happy when she goes out on the town and she laughs and jokes and cuts up with the people she finds herself with.  But when she gets home…when she gets alone…she’s still that girl.  That girl that’s broken.  That girl that’s empty.  That girl that’s wounded.  And there is nothing wrong with that.

Embrace your broken-ness.  Let it be a part of you.  You can’t keep from it.  But don’t let it define you.
