Enigma – Return to Innocence

This is one of those songs that has stayed with me for years. It’s like a hug in song form. It gives me goosebumps whenever I hear it and I can’t help but sing along whenever I hear it.

“Don’t be afraid to be weak
Don’t be too proud to be strong
Just look into your heart my friend
That will be the return to yourself
The return to innocence

If you want, then start to laugh
If you must, then start to cry
Be yourself don’t hide
Just believe in destiny
Don’t care what people say
Just follow your own way
Don’t give up and use the chance
To return to innocence”

The words soothe me; they are almost like a mantra. Sometimes it is ok to cry. Or to be weak. It’s ok. Don’t hide yourself away, be yourself and be proud.

It’s so easy to put too much pressure on yourself to be ‘perfect’. You’re perfect already. Perfect at being you.
