Feeling Good also known as Feelin’ Good is a song from the 1964 musical “The Roar Of The Greasepaint—The Smell Of The Crowd”. Many artists have recorded this song with Nina Simone’s version being one of the most popular versions.

What we like

  • Simone’s voice in low register, rocky and raspy extenuates the struggle that is expressed with the finalisation of gratitude with the opportunity of a new start

Soul experience

  • All is as it should be.  A flower doesn’t question or doubt that it will bloom when it is a bud.  A pupa does not doubt while it is in a cocoon that it will not develop into a butterfly.  Every opportunity whether it be difficult or not, allows us to simply understand that which is within us.  If we accept like the flower with trust that we will bloom then we can take this into realising each day is an opportunity for a new day, a fresh start, a new life

To reflect on

  • Birds flyin’ high, you know how I feel
    Sun in the sky, you know how I feel
    Breeze driftin’ on by, you know how I feel
    It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me
    Yeah, it’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me, ooooooooh…
    And I’m feelin’ good
