I have been running so sweaty my whole life
Urgent for a finish line
And I have been missing the rapture this whole time of being forever incomplete
Ever unfolding
Ever expanding
Ever adventurous
And torturous
And never done
– Alanis Morisette (lyrics from her song, Incomplete)

 

I’ve been kicking it old school lately by busting out some old CD’s.  I came across Alanis Morisette’s 2008 album “Flavors of Entanglement”.  I can remember buying this album just before a past boyfriend and I parted ways and this album helped me gain empowerment and strength during that time.  Alanis’ whole album goes through the journey of moving on from a relationship (I believe the album was written about her break up from Ryan Reynolds).

The songs are raw and real – she sings about plenty of heavy negative stuff as well as finding your feet again and new-found happiness.

The final song on the album is called “Incomplete” and it’s full of insightful and optimistic messages. 

You may be getting over a breakup, frustrated at not getting that job promotion you deserved, or in just some sort of rut, and hopefully this song can remind you to look at the bigger picture of the issue at hand.

I’ve found a beautiful acoustic version of Alanis performing it…
