A little happier

My therapist said something really enlightening the other day and I haven’t stopped thinking about it. She said, “The most thankful people tend to be the happiest.” This took me back to a time in my life that I kept a gratitude journal. I would start and end every single day by writing about something for which I was grateful. It really did make a huge difference in my daily perspective. Sometimes it was something as simple as being grateful for a bed to sleep in, as there have been times in my life when I did not have such a luxury. Sometimes it would be something monumental, like being grateful that my mom is still alive and annoying me. The funny thing about gratitude is that when you find yourself looking at your life for things to be grateful for, you find more than you thought you would. Suddenly, your perception starts to change. So, it makes sense that we would be a little happier. *winks* So, today, I am grateful that someone has taken the time to read these words. That’s right, today I am grateful for YOU. ♥

Happy Halloween

I really wanted to do an homage to Bewitched, but things don’t always go as planned. So, here I am sitting on a broom stick flying casually past the moon just fast enough to whip my long lustrous mane of hair into a beautiful frenzy of curls. *laughs* Seriously, I just want to wish everyone a Happy Halloween, at least those that celebrate, and to those that don’t…uhm, Happy October 31st! Yeah, that’s it!

Never Be the Same

“Let me tell you about a girl that I used to be,
Same name same face but a different me,
She didn’t know what she was thinking,
Didn’t know her world was sinking,
Had her dreams written on a paper in her hand,
Held on tight but she didn’t understand,
The love and heart that she’s replacing,
All the past that she’s erasing,
We all get lost sometimes and we forget who we are and we forget who we are
Somewhere along the way, we’re all running in a crazy race,
Never thinking about the hearts we break,
And as our hope starts fading away things are never gonna be the same,
‘Cause when you’re standing there all alone,
Losing everything you’ve ever known,
You’re staring at a different face things are never gonna be the same”

It’s the lyrics of this one that get me…right here.

Downtown

“Love is a condition of the head
Wanna push a button and reset
But you’re still up in my skirt
I thought if you had a piece of me
I could keep the other 2 or 3
But now that’s not how it works
I shouldn’t be here right now
But you got me figured out
Pushing my pieces round, I know this game
And I need a miracle
To break from this ritual
Till then I’ll be saying the same thing
Take me downtown
Use my body all night
Make me feel like last time
Make it taste like love
Take me downtown
Yours until my heart dies
Give it up one last time
Give it up for love”

Auction Block

Welp, its official. I’ve finally lost my damn mind. What was left of it anyway. Any regular readers know that I’m a freak, but I’ve really done it this time. I’ve put myself up for auction…okay, let me clarify. It’s a date auction. One date. No more, no less is guaranteed, but the winner will get a minimum of one hour of my undivided attention. I don’t know what I was thinking. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Don’t ask me why.
Okay, I sorta know why. You see, FMD has opened up a dating agency called Afterglow and to kick it off, they’re doing a date auction. There it was, a sign and a basket full of paper. Naturally, my twisted little mind dove right in.
The bidding started with a huge party last night (the 24th) and the auction will end Sunday, March 31st. There are some pretty damned amazing people to bid on. You do have to be a member of FMD to bid and you have to be a member of FMD to partake in the dating agency. However, I will say that at least it’ll hopefully connect like minded people. For more information, you can visit FMD yourself. I don’t work there or represent the club in any professional manner.

Fade Into You

“I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take the breath that’s true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth
You live your life, you go in shadows
You’ll come apart and you’ll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
Colors your eyes with what’s not there
Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it’s strange you never knew
A stranger’s light comes on slowly
A stranger’s heart without a home
You put your hands into your head
And then smiles cover your heart
Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it’s strange you never knew”
~ Mazzy Star – Fade Into You

Shut Up & Drive

This is just the mood I was in when I did this picture and the song is so much fun, I had to use it. Enjoy and go shop!♥

Rihanna – Shut Up and Drive

I’ve been looking for a driver who is qualified
So if you think that you’re the one step into my ride
I’m a fine-tuned supersonic speed machine
Got a sunroof top and a gangster lead
So if you feel it, let me know, know, know
Come on now, what you waiting for, for, for
My engine’s ready to explode, explode, explode
So start me up and watch me go, go, go, go
Get you where you wanna go, if you know what I mean
Got a ride that’s smoother than a limousine
Can you handle the curves, can you run all the lights
If you can, baby boy, then we can go all night
‘Cause it’s 0 to 60 in 3.5
Baby, you got the keys
Now shut up and drive, drive, drive
Shut up and drive, drive, drive
I got class like a ’57 Cadillac
And overdrive with a whole lot of boom in the back
You look like you can handle what’s under my hood
You keep saying that you will, boy, I wish you would
So if you feel it, let me know, know, know
Come on now, what you waiting for, for, for
My engine’s ready to explode, explode, explode
So start me up and watch me go, go, go, go
Get you where you wanna go, if you know what I mean
Got a ride that’s smoother than a limousine
Can you handle the curves, can you run all the lights
If you can, baby boy, then we can go all night
‘Cause it’s 0 to 60 in 3.5
Baby, you got the keys
Now shut up and drive, drive, drive
Shut up and drive, drive, drive
‘Cause your Maybach ain’t got what I got
Get it, get it, don’t stop, it’s a sure shot
Ain’t a Ferrari, huh, boy, I’m sorry
I ain’t even worried, so step inside
And ride, ride, ride
So if you feel me, let me know, know, know
Come on now, what you waiting for, for, for?
My engine’s ready to explode, explode, explode
So start me up and watch me go, go, go, go
Get you where you wanna go, if you know what I mean
Got a ride that’s smoother than a limousine
Can you handle the curves, can you run all the lights
If you can, baby boy, then we can go all night
‘Cause it’s 0 to 60 in 3.5
Baby, you got the keys
Now shut up and drive, drive, drive
Shut up and drive, drive, drive
Shut up and drive, drive, drive
Shut up and drive, drive, drive
Shut Up &amp; Drive

Stand By Me

So, recently, my friend Alvie posted a broad question to Facebook asking if other people got transported to a memory instantaneously by a certain song. Of course, I think that must be true for almost everyone, right? Well, some songs bring good memories, some sad, and some traumatic. For me, “Stand By Me” has always been a trigger to a traumatic memory. Its hard to be so turned off by such a popular song, however, I have finally found the cover of it that not only do I love the cover, but I can actually enjoy the song for the first time in 30yrs. I’ve tossed the link at the bottom of the page. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do now. ♥
