How Pitch Perfect {the movie} Inspired Me

 In Blog

So…this morning Hanalei asked me to download the soundtrack for the movie “Pitch Perfect”.  If you haven’t watched it I highly recommend you do…even if you don’t have a 6 year old daughter like I do or a kid at that matter….The video above is the girls singing their last debute in an a coppella competition.

Why I am sharing this with you is the words of the song they start with “Price Tag, by Jessie J”.  I have absolutely fallen in love with not only the rythmn of this tune but the words and the meaning.   ( See Lyrics below)    You see,  I have had all the stuff…..the cars, the homes and the ability to buy anything I want at almost any given time,  and when we lost everything we had about 5 years back in a bad real estate deal I thought my life was over….because it was ” All About the Money”, the price tags, the stuff and how people would view me.

When we decided to ship off, sell everything and live out of 1 suit case each…It was hard, I am not going to B.S anyone….but it was the best thing that could ever happen to me in my life, because I realized that it wasn’t about the money, it was about experience and living and that all the false pressure of “KEEPING UP WITH THE JONES’S”  was a crock!!

Since the loss in 08′ we have rebuilt our wealth and out lives.  It hasn’t always been easy, but once we realized that it’s “Not About The Money” then life got easier, for fun and full of purpose.

It’s not about the money…its about making the world dance..Ooooh that sounds good, doesn’t it?

XOXOX Rhonda

Seems like everybody’s got a price
I wonder how they sleep at night
When the sale comes first and the truth comes second
Just stop for a minute and smile

Why is everybody so serious?
Acting so damn mysterious
You got your shades on your eyes and your heels so high
That you can’t even have a good time

Everybody look to their left
Everybody look to their right
Can you feel that? Yeah
We’ll pay them with love tonight

It’s not about the money, money, money
We don’t need your money, money, money
We just wanna make the world dance
Forget about the price tag

Ain’t about the cha-ching, cha-ching
Ain’t about the ba-bling, ba-bling
Wanna make the world dance
Forget about the price tag
