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.

Tonight friends and I engaged in a deep conversation about relationships. Everyone has had relationships that they needed to end for one reason or another. After listening to many different stories I came up with a conclusion. If you see a quality that you hate to love about yourself inside someone else maybe it’s best you choose to let that person go before you become the worst that you could be.

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.

 We all have something we need to rise above. Whether it’s a temptation or a loss, in order to gain insight and wisdom unfortunate occurences must happen. How we deal with these situations is what makes us stronger or weaker. Find the lesson in every situation and you will gain wisdom.

 

 

 

 

This week’s Friday’s song is Rise Above This by Seether

Take whatever situation that brings you down and rise above it!

Happy Friday!

What are you listening to?

 

Take the light, undarken everything around me
Call the clouds and listen closely I’m lost without you
Call your name every day when I feel so helpless
I’ve fallen down but I’ll rise above this, rise above this

Hate the mind, regrets are better left unspoken
For all we know, this void will grow
And everything’s in vain, distressing you though it leaves me open
Feels so right, but I’ll end this all before it gets me

Call your name every day when I feel so helpless
I’ve fallen down but I’ll rise above this, rise above this
Call your name every day when I seem so helpless
I’ve fallen down, and I’ll rise above this, rise above this doubt

I’ll mend myself before it gets me
(I’ll mend myself before it gets me)
I’ll mend myself before it gets me
(I’ll mend myself before it gets me)

Call your name every day when I feel so helpless
I’ve fallen down but I’ll rise above this, rise above this
Forty eight ways to say that I’m feelin’ helpless
I’m Falling down, falling down, but I’ll rise above this, rise above this,
Rise above this, rise above this doubtqcN3EGg#

Are you in love? Were you ever in love? Do you want to fall in love? What do you think about love?

I personally love love. Love is sun on a cloudy day and a blanket on a cold night. I like being in love, seeing people fall in love and feeling loved.

I love David Gray and thought this week I would choose one of his songs. The video is great and really captures love at its best.

Be Mine
David Gray

From the very first moment I saw you
That’s when I knew
All the dreams I held in my heart
Had suddenly come true
Knock me over, stone-cold sober
Not a think I could say or do
‘Cos baby when I’m walking with you now
My eyes are so wide
Like you reached right into my head
And turned on the light inside
Turned an old light on
Inside my mind, hey

Come on baby it’s all right
Sunday, Monday, day or night
Whether blue or white it’s plain to see
Be mine! Be mine!
That rainy, shiny, night or day
What’s the difference anyway
Honey till your heart belongs to me?

If I had some influence girl
With the powers that be
I’d have them fire that arrow at you
Like they fired it right at me
Maybe when your heart and soul are burning you might see
That everytime I’m talking with you
It’s always over too soon?
That everyday feels so incomplete
‘Till you walk into the room?
Say the word now girl
I’ll jump that moon, hey

Come on baby it’s ok
Rainy, shiny, night or day
There’s nothing in the way now
Don’t you see?
Be mine! Be mine!

Winter, Summer, day or night
Centigrade of Fahrenheit
Baby till your heart belongs to me
Be mine! Be mine!

Thursday, Friday, short or long
When you got a love so strong
How can it be wrong now? Mercy me!
Be mine! Be mine!

Jumpin Jesus, holy cow!
What’s the difference anyhow
Baby till your heart belongs to meeee?

My body’s on fire, I’m always on fire,
My body’s on fire, I’m always on fire,
My body’s on fire, Don’t you wanna stay with me?
Be mine! Be mine!

My body’s on fire, I’m always on fire,
My body’s on fire, I’m always on fire,
My body’s on fire, Don’t you wanna stay with me?
Be mine! Be mine!

My body’s on fire, I’m always on fire,
My body’s on fire, I’m always on fire,
My body’s on fire, Don’t you wanna stay with me?
Be mine! Be mine!

My body’s on fire, I’m always on fire,
My body’s on fire, I’m always on fire,
My body’s on fire, Don’t you wanna stay…

My mother’s favorite singer has always been Bette Midler and her favorite song The Rose.

This song has been playing in my mind for whatever reason the last few days and I wanted to hear it so I chose it for this week’s song.

My mother lost her best friend (my father) and is still trying to come to terms with that as we all are. She had a great love that some people will never have the opportunity to experience. He was the perfect rose that she stumbled upon. His seed has been planted, hopefully more roses will bloom for a long time to come.

 

Happy Friday. What are you listening to this week?

 

 

The rose

Some say love, it is a river, that drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor, that leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love, it is a hunger, an endless aching need
I say love, it is a flower, and you, its only seed

Its the heart afraid of breaking, that never learns to dance
Its the dream afraid of waking, that never takes the chance
Its the one who wont be taken, the one who cant seem to give
And the soul afraid of dying, that never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely and the road has been too long
And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong
Just remember that in the winter, far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed, that with the suns love in the spring becomes the rose
