Recently I watched The Jackson's: an American Dream and I realized how obsessed I am with Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson was one of the first artists I had ever danced to. When I graduated from pre-school, we had to do a partner dance. The song of choice was Heal the World by Michael Jackson. I had the cutest yellow dress and crispy white frilly socks.
Now that I think about it, if I could go back in time, I would totally transport to the late 80's early 90's as a 21 year old watching an MJ concert feeling the power of love and ferocity for the first time! No doubt about it, MJ was and will always be the man; he is the reason I remember to smile and to think about others.

Heal the World is one of my favorite songs by MJ. It is on one of my favorite albums of all time, Dangerous, which was released in 1991, the year of my birth! I got to thinking if I had one superpower for a day, what would it be. I thought, hmmm.... the power to heal. I do not mean literally where you have a scrape or have been bitten by Damon Salvatore (Vampire Diary plug), but more so in the sense of healing the soul. There are a lot of people walking around with so much hurt, frustration, and stress on their shoulders. It begins to bring them down and in some cases can make them angry and bitter. I would love to be the person to take all of that away for a day. I would use my power on my mother first. I just want to take away any trouble or pain she may be dealing with internally. All I want is for her is pure happiness and joy.
We all have to learn to deal with the cards we were dealt with and learn to cope with our lives. It's up to us whether or not we will let stress and difficult situations shape our happiness. Nevertheless, for ONE day I want to be able to touch any hand and take all of the worry, uncertainty, and pain away. After I am done, we can all moonwalk-it-up in our living rooms with big ole' smiles.
