A Song I am Loving: Doing Fine by Chani Levy

Love this newly-released song by Chani Levy about being patient with ourselves as we struggle through our own personal life’s journey.

Love the melody and the right-on message (sounds very Rabbi Nivin, I wonder if she’s in the chabura too?). My favorite line is “Life’s a journey, not a race.” Maybe next time I get down on myself I’ll turn on this song?

Lyrics
Sorting through the voices in my mind
I try to move, but I can hardly find
Strength to pick me up from where I am
I’m here again, and everything’s the same

Same old struggles showing up
I tried so hard, but it’s not enough
I’m racing toward the finish line
But it takes time

Each day I get a little stronger
Each year I live a little longer
And each challenge shows me how much farther
I’ve moved ahead
So when I stare at my reflection
I dare not pressure for perfection
It’s one step at a time
Breathing in…I am doing fine

Silently I sink into myself
Get me out…But no one’s there to help
I’m running out of patience, out of hope
I’m holding on…I need to know

Hashem (G-d), He counts the tears and sweat
And though I may not be there yet
There’s a welcome sign at every step
And I’m okay

Each day I get a little stronger…

Thank You for this melody divine
Clarity is often hard to find
Life’s a journey; life is not a race
And I need time to figure out my place

Round and round
It sure is tough
But it’s a spiral and it’s going up
Feel the raise in every rise
Stop- take pride

Each day I get a little stronger…

I’m letting go, and I will be just fine
Believing that I am doing fine
