I just learned of a song that I think would be good for use in sessions as well as in our personal lives. It’s called Unworthy and it’s by Cheryl Wheeler. You can listen to it on youtube and view the lyrics.
I had never heard of Cheryl Wheeler before but someone let me know about this song and I’m so glad they did. If you at least read the lyrics through the link above, you will know exactly what I’m talking about. I don’t necessarily think I should be doing everything she lists in the song, but I’m pretty sure I could rewrite the lyrics with my own to-do list. I’m sure you could, too.
I realize the song itself sounds a little goofy, but I do think it has a lot of relevance in a variety of settings. I could see myself using it with my substance abuse and/or mental health groups or even in just a session with people seeking help with wellness. I also think it’s something I need to take a look at myself.
Obviously, this song lends itself well to lyric analysis and a good, hearty discussion about self-care and the importance of living in the moment. There might be some songwriting or lyric substitution opportunities here as well.
What are your ideas?
