What Have You Done Today to Make You Feel Proud?

Posted by Fitz Villafuerte under Inspirational on December 8, 2010

It’s 5:00 PM now and I’m writing this as another day of the workweek is ending for many people.

It’s Wednesday so it’s also the busiest day of the week (at least it was always for me when I was still in the corporate world).

And I remember myself years ago, as I was making my way through the evening rush hour to get home, I turned on the radio and heard this song asking me: “What have you done today to make you feel proud?

A single by Heather Small, lead vocal for M People, Proud has always been one of those songs that would inspire me to step out of my comfort zone and go for the things that an average-ordinary-me wouldn’t.

And I hope that by sharing with you this song today, it will likewise inspire you not to be afraid of what’s out there – go for your dreams and realize that the proudest moments of your life will always be the times when you challenged your mindset and braved the obstacles of life.

Proud by Heather Small
I look into the window of my mind
Reflections of the fears I know I’ve left behind
I step out of the ordinary, I can feel my soul ascending
I am on my way, can’t stop me now
And you can do the same

What have you done today to make you feel proud?
It’s never too late to try
What have you done today to make you feel proud?
You could be so many people, if you make that break for freedom
What have you done today to make you feel proud?

Still so many answers I don’t know
Realize that to question is how we grow
So I step out of the ordinary, I can feel my soul ascending
I am on my way, can’t stop me now
And you can do the same

We need a change, do it today
I can feel my spirit rising
We need a change, so do it today
‘Cause I can see a clear horizon

What have you done today to make you feel proud?
So what have you done today to make you feel proud?
You could be so many people, just make that break for freedom
So what have you done today to make you feel proud?

Did you like this song? Released way back in 2000, it has been used many times as themes for several television shows like The Biggest Loser and Oprah; and it’s also the official theme for the 2012 London Summer Olympics.

And just in case you want more of Heather Small, then you should listen to this one as well, from M People – Search For The Hero
