"I really want to know what makes you feel beautiful? What makes your world go 'round when no one is around?"
These are the opening words to What Makes You Feel Beautiful's theme song which was written and composed by Tanama Colibri. Ms. Colibri’s lyrics perfectly and beautifully capture the heart and motivation behind what we do here at WMYFB, and it starts with the question at the core of our mission; a simple question that has been asked of thousands of women since this organization's founding in 1998: "What Makes You Feel Beautiful?". It is always interesting and enlightening privilege to hear women's responses! Being an empowered woman begins with being clear about who you are and what makes you tick.
Notice how Tanama's additional question, "What makes your world go 'round when no one is around?" makes you dig deeper and gives another level of depth to your answer. You owe it to yourself to live the kind of life that you wake up excited to be living! Figure out what it is that makes you bubble up with joy and excitement and do THAT as often as possible because doing what we enjoy lights us up and makes us feel great, and feeling great is one of life’s most delicious ways of feeling beautiful!
What Makes You Feel Beautiful's theme song was lovingly created and gifted to the organization by the immensely talented, local singer/songwriter Tanama Colibri. Not only is Tanama an accomplished musician but she is also a beloved member of our What Makes You Feel Beautiful family. You will get to meet our very own spokesmodel, Tanama, in an upcoming documentary film and learn more about the creative process that she went through when writing the song. You will get a behind-the-scenes, sneak peek of Ms. Colibri’s artistic journey and see what living out loud looks like for Tanama as she pursues her love of music. We know that you’ll be inspired by her story!
We will share more about this exciting project over the coming weeks. To stay up-to-date with news about the documentary's debut, as well as What Makes You Feel Beautiful's programs, blog, workshops and services, we invite you to become a member of What Makes You Feel Beautiful's online community of amazing, caring, inspiring, empowered women.
