Feeling That Song

Music has always been somewhat of an addiction for me. Depending on how I feel I need to have music and lurics I can relate to around to really be able to be in touch with what I feel. It’s that and writing. If I lost either one I have no clue as to how I would be able to go on.

And here are some of the songs that I can’t get enough of at his time of my life.

The Change

“Everytime you get up

And get back in the race

One more small piece of you

Starts to fall into place.”


Some of the lyrics from my favorite Rascal Flatts song “Stand”. I’ve tattooed these words on the top of my back to remember myself that even the darkest and saddest of  times always leads to a new ray of sunshine.

We’ve all been there, or one day will. The day that everything changes and nothing will ever be the same again. It can be a new job, a poem you read, a new relationship or maybe the end of one.

Bruce Barton once wrote:

“When you are through changing, you are through.”

I’ve never really thought that over until lately. And knowing that we will keep on changing throughout life is both a comforting though as well as a bit scary.

Sometimes those changes are barely noticeable. Other times we have to make the big changes. And no matter how much we try to figure out life and love, there will never be a right answer to it. We will fail over and over. Some of the choices we make will be right of course. Some will seem right at the time they are made then turn into wrong ones later on. And there are those that we know are wrong but we try to make it the right ones either way.

We as humans have to go through this. To learn about the people around us, but mostly to learn about who we are. The process is hard and it can feel lonely at times, but be sure to keep the people that loves you close by.  You will need them and they will need you.

The change is coming. It always comes in one way or another.

We have to learn to embrace even though it can feel unfair and difficult.

I believe everything happens for a reason. And if you’re having a hard time, remember that you are not alone and will never be!


Perfect Sunday Morning

Luxury is an ancient notion.  There was once a Chinese mandarin who had himself wakened three times every morning simply for the pleasure of being told it was not yet time to get up. 


I find most Sundays to be perfect. No rush, no pressure and no alarm clock. I can sleep in and I don’t have to feel bad about it. Today I slept like a baby until 10 am and when I got up to make my morning coffee I saw that it was a perfect spring day outside my window. Having that to be the best thing in the morning after waking up besides the love of my life I thought was as perfect as it could get, but then I got a text. Three of my best girlfriends are in town and wants to meet up for coffee! This day just keeps getting better and better!

So here I sit in my tiny home office with my fresh brewed cup of coffee and a smile on my face and a thought hit me;

What if every morning could be as full of joy and smiles as this one is.

Even though I am an optimist I do realize that this wish has no possibility of come true. Every day is different and even though I wake up most days with a smile, I know that there will be sad mornings, angry mornings and sick mornings. The way of life that is. We have to feel some of the bad to really be able to appreciate the good. Our smiles and joys wouldn’t be as valuable if we had them all the time.

But the thing that I’ve promised myself on this lovely spring morning is that I will try to be more optimistic than I already am, every morning. I will say to myself that the day will be wonderful! I will make the most out of it! I will tell the people that I love how much I care and I will take care of them and myself.

I’ll end my late spring morning pep talk with a song that means a lot to me. Enjoy and have an amazing Sunday!
