Today’s viral video is features a young woman singing karaoke in a grocery store. Ordinarily, I would have listened to the first few moments and clicked onto another screen, but the more I heard this young woman sing, the more I knew that this was something that mattered.

We’re always waiting for someone to give us permission to do what we were born to do. Whether it’s a college degree, a job title or a branded channel, we give entirely too much power for other things to proclaim our worth. This woman understood the power of her voice and she took it upon herself to sing her best in the middle of a store, in casual clothes and her friends cheering her on.

Life is simple. All we have to do is grab an opportunity and make it ours.
