Remember every choice has a consequence. You may kid yourself by convincing yourself that a bad choice feels right. The bad choices are the easiest ones to make. It’s the right choices that feels like work.

You can fool some people but there are others who will always know your true intentions. Often, they are the ones that keep quiet.

Don’t fool yourself, you are not fooling them.

I love Pink! Maybe it’s because we share a birthday or maybe I like her edginess. She is cool, and her voice stands out. She doesn’t follow the crowd, she seems to be comfortable in her own skin and I always admire a person who is confident with whom they are.
I chose her song “Who Knew,” this week. Sometimes Life and the relationships in our life are taken for granted. We assume that tomorrow will bring more of the same and won’t change all that much. But once in a while, a hiccup occurs and everything we knew to be is no longer the way it was. And we look back and think I would have never thought my life would end up the way it has.

Happy Friday!

Who Knew lyrics

You took my hand
You showed me how
You promised me you’d be around
Uh huh
That’s right
I took your words
And I believed
In everything
You said to me
Yeah huh
That’s right

If someone said three years from now
You’d be long gone
I’d stand up and punch them out
Cause they’re all wrong
I know better
Cause you said forever
And ever
Who knew

Remember when we were such fools
And so convinced and just too cool
Oh no
No no
I wish I could touch you again
I wish I could still call you friend
I’d give anything

When someone said count your blessings now
‘fore they’re long gone
I guess I just didn’t know how
I was all wrong
They knew better
Still you said forever
And ever
Who knew

Yeah yeah
I’ll keep you locked in my head
Until we meet again
Until we
Until we meet again
And I won’t forget you my friend
What happened

If someone said three years from now
You’d be long gone
I’d stand up and punch them out
Cause they’re all wrong and
That last kiss
I’ll cherish
Until we meet again
And time makes
It harder
I wish I could remember
But I keep
Your memory
You visit me in my sleep
My darling
Who knew
My darling
My darling
Who knew
My darling
I miss you
My darling
Who knew
Who knew

I saw that a link was made to my blog by Huffington Post. I was curious to see what that was all about, so I headed on over to their site. It’s a website dedicated to celebrities talking politics. As I mentioned in my last post this unnerves me, but the vulgar used by a young celebrity made it even worse. There is a clip showing Hayden Panettiere (it’s supposed to be funny) advising why you shouldn’t vote for John McCain. The only thing I heard her say was the F word repeatedly.
I love Heroes and she is one of my favorite characters on that show but hearing her speak so ugly tainted my view of her and took away from her beauty.
I commend anyone who encourages young people to vote (I am young myself). I have a quirky sense of humor. I have used that word before, but using that word among friends and family who already really know who I am is different. The only thing we know about celebrities is what we are given by the media. I am sure she is a nice girl but does she really want to be viewed as lacking class.
I have always valued myself as being a free spirit and encourage my daughter’s to be the same. If Hayden really wants change (as do I) then she must first understand that change comes within and speaking like this only brings hatred.
Grace is missing from today’s world and no one seems to notice. A woman who is educated and uses her words carefully will catch my attention quicker than a girl who throws out the f-word just to be heard. All I could think of while watching her was Ill. In the beginning of the segment, she said she knew she was Hot enough to hold the viewers attention for thirty seconds. This may be true but eventually that hot young girl will become a middle-aged woman and if the only thing she is remembered for was being hot and speaking ugly then what did she do to change the world for the better. Nothing!

I am not about to talk politics. I don’t particularly care to engage in a topic that would generate such heat. However, something annoys me to no end. Celebrities using their platforms to influence the public to vote one way or the other makes me want to puke. So and so endorses Obama or The Whatchamacalits decided to endorse McCain. Why does someone think that because they sing or act their opinions matter more than the rest of ours? If we were a fan of theirs, we would surely vote the way they do because their opinion must be the right one.
A writer is taught not to preach, it is a turn off to the reader. I think celebrities should be taught the same, discretion is much more attractive. Once you stand on one platform or the other you isolate yourselves from a large group of people (whether it be democrats or republicans), a month from now we will have a new president regardless.
There is a quote I love by William Butler Yeats-All empty souls tend toward extreme opinions. I am not saying celebrities have souls that are empty (there are many that do extreme good) but talk is cheap and it is usually the ones that are talking the loudest that do the least.
It’s like seeing a beautiful woman or man and having this idea of who they must be, then all of the sudden something they say ruins the first impression. You never see them the way you once did.
