Wednesday's Word


Good Things Coming

Do not worry about how the good that has been planned for you will come.

It will come.

Do not worry, obsess, and think you have to control it, go out hunting for it, or tangle your mind trying to figure out how and when it will find you.

It will find you.

Surrender to your Higher Power each day. Trust your Higher Power. Then, stay peaceful. Trust and listen to yourself. That is how the good you want will come to you.

Your healing. Your joy. Your relationships. Your solutions. That job. That desired change. That opportunity. It will come to you - naturally, with ease, and in a host of ways.

That answer will come. The direction will come. The money. The idea. The energy. The creativity. The path will open itself to you. Trust that, for it has already been planned.

It is futile, a waste and drain of energy, to worry about how it will come. It is already there. You have it already. It is in place. You just cannot see it!

You will be brought to it, or it will be brought to you.

Today, I will relax and trust that the good I need, will find me. Either through my leadings, or the leadings of others, all I want and need will come to me when the time is right.

Legend Of The Candy Cane

A candy maker in Indiana wanted to make a candy that would be a witness, so he made the Christmas candy cane. He incorporated several symbol for the birth, ministry, and death of Jesus Christ.

He began with a stick of pure white, hard candy. White to symbolize the Virgin Birth and the sinless nature of Jesus; and hard to symbolize the Solid Rock, the foundation of the church and firmness of the promises of God.

The candy maker made the candy in the form of a “J” to represent the precious name of Jesus, who came to earth as our Savior. It could also represent the staff of the “Good Shepherd” with which he reaches down into the world.

Thinking that the candy was somewhat plain, the candy maker stained it with red stripes. He used three small stripes to show the stripes of the scourging Jesus received by which we are healed. The large red stripe was for the blood shed by Christ.

In years to come the candy became known only as a candy cane – a meaningless decoration. But the meaning is still there for those who know. I pray that this symbol will again be used to witness TO THE WONDER OF JESUS AND HIS GREAT LOVE that came down at Christmas.

I'm okay, It'll be alright again, I'm okay (okay) It'll be alright again, I'm okay

Little Miss do your best,
Little Miss never rest,
Little Miss, be my guest, I'll make more anytime it runs out

As always I find myself engulfed w/music & songs & lyrics & meanings.

Kinda ironic, even the title......

All is alright, I am going the path & journey that I need to go on & thru. Moving my brick wall into a small hedge that I can pull thru when I need to & if I don't, it's all right & good & I will move when I need to or when I am ready.

The words, that you must lose to win, how about all the struggles that I need to go thru in order to be strong, healthy, mind & body & spirit. I always try & do my best.
I am always trying to learn & expand my horizons & see & experience all.

My Life.
My Faith.
My Journey.
My Weakness.
My Strength's.
My Willingness to Accept & Forgive.

I have control & power.......and I leave to the Lord too. To assist me in life & my journey.

Here's to "it's alright"

Feelings

It's okay to have and feel our feelings - all of them.

Years into recovery, we may still be battling with ourselves about this issue. Of all the prohibitions we've lived with, this one is potentially the most damaging and the most long-lived.

Many of us needed to shut down the emotional part of ourselves to survive certain situations. We shut down the part of us that feels anger, sadness, fear, joy, and love. We may have turned off our sexual or sensual feelings too. Many of us lived in systems with people who refused to tolerate our emotions. We were shamed or reprimanded for expressing feelings, usually by people who were taught to repress their own.

But times have changed. It is okay now for us to acknowledge and accept our emotions. We don't need to allow our emotions to control us; neither do we need to allow our emotions to control us; neither do we need to rigidly repress our feelings. Our emotional center is a valuable part of us. It's connected to our physical well being, our thinking, and our spirituality.

Our feelings are also connected to that great gift, instinct. They enable us to give and receive love.

We are neither weak nor deficient for indulging in our feelings. It means we're becoming healthy and whole.

Today, I will allow myself to recognize and accept whatever feelings pass through me. Without shame, I will tune in to the emotional part of myself.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer "Silver and Gold"



Silver, silver and gold
Silver and gold, silver and gold
Ev'ryone wishes for silver and gold
How do you measure its worth?
Just by the pleasure it gives here on earth.
Silver and gold, silver and gold

Silver and gold decorations
On ev'ry Christmas tree.

Silver, silver and gold
Silver, silver and gold

Wise men brought gifts to the mange I'm told
Mary was humble to see
Shepherds and kings there on bended knees
It's silver and gold, silver and gold
Feeling the world with their lives
Silver and gold how they shimmer on ev'ry Christmas night
On ev'ry Christmas night

Silver, silver and gold

Where are you Christmas? Faith Hill



"Where Are You Christmas"

Where are you Christmas
Why can't I find you
Why have you gone away
Where is the laughter
You used to bring me
Why can't I hear music play

My world is changing
I'm rearranging
Does that mean Christmas changes too

Where are you Christmas
Do you remember
The one you used to know
I'm not the same one
See what the time's done
Is that why you have let me go

Christmas is here
Everywhere, oh
Christmas is here
If you care, oh

If there is love in your heart and your mind
You will feel like Christmas all the time

I feel you Christmas
I know I've found you
You never fade away
The joy of Christmas
Stays here inside us
Fills each and every heart with love

Where are you Christmas
Fill your heart with love




MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL--All year around!!!

Alan Jackson - Let It Be Christmas



Let it be Christmas everywhere
In the hearts of all people both near and afar
Christmas everywhere
Feel the love of the season wherever you are
On the small country roads lined with green mistletoe
Big city streets where a thousand lights glow

Let it be Christmas everywhere
Let heavenly music fill the air
Let every heart sing let every bell ring
The story of hope and joy and peace
And let it be Christmas everywhere
Let heavenly music fill the air
Let anger and fear and hate disappear
Let there be love that lasts through the year
And let it be Christmas
Christmas everywhere

Let it be Christmas everywhere
With the gold and the silver, the green and the red
Christmas everywhere
In the smiles of all children asleep in their beds
In the eyes of young babies their first fallen snow
Elderlys' memories that never grow old

Let it be Christmas everywhere
Let heavenly music fill the air
Let every heart sing let every bell ring
The story of hope and joy and peace
And let it be Christmas everywhere
Let heavenly music fill the air
Let anger and fear and hate disappear
Let there be love that lasts through the year
And let it be Christmas
Christmas everywhere

Let it be Christmas everywhere
In the songs that we sing and the gifts that we bring
Christmas everywhere
In what this day means and what we believe
From the sandy white beaches where blue water rolls
Snow covered mountains and valleys below

Let it be Christmas everywhere
Let heavenly music fill the air
Let every heart sing let every bell ring
The story of hope and joy and peace
And let it be Christmas everywhere
Let heavenly music fill the air
Let anger and fear and hate disappear
Let there be love that lasts through the year
And let it be Christmas
Christmas everywhere
Christmas everywhere
Christmas everywhere

Lady Antebellum - "Hello World" Music Video



Traffic crawls, cell phone calls
Talk radio screams at me through my tinted window I see
A little girl, rust red minivan, she’s got chocolate on her face
Got little hands and she waves at me
Yeah, she smiles at me

Chorus
Well, hello world
How you been
Good to see you, my old friend
Sometimes I feel cold as steel
Broken like I’m never gonna heal
And I see a light, a little hope in a little girl
Hello world

Every day I drive by a little white church
It’s got these little white crosses
Like angels in the yard
Maybe I should stop on in, say a prayer
Maybe talk to God like He is there
Oh, I know He’s there
Yeah, I know He’s there

Well hello world
How you been
Good to see you, my old friend
Sometimes I feel as cold as steel
And broken like I’m never gonna heal
And I see a light, a little grace, a little faith unfurls
Well hello world

Sometimes I forget what living’s for
And I hear my life through my front door
And I breathe it in
Oh, I’m home again
And I see my wife
Little boy and little girl
Hello world
Hello world

Well the empty disappears
I remember why I’m here
Just surrender and believe
I fall down on my knees
Well hello world
Hello world
Hello world

The Dash by Linda Ellis



The Dash by Linda Ellis

There was a man who stood to speak
At the funeral of a friend
He referred to the dates on her tombstone
From the beginning to the end

He noted that first came her date of her birth
And spoke the following date with tears
But he said what mattered most of all
Was the dash between those years

For that dash stands for all the time
That she spent alive on earth.
And now only those who loved her
Know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not how much we own;
The cars the house the cash
What matters is how we live and love
And how we spend our dash.

So think about this long and hard.
Are there things you'd like to change?
For you never know how much time is left
That can still be rearranged.

If we could just slow down enough
To consider what's true and real
And always try to understand
The way other people feel.

We'd be less quick to anger
And show appreciation more
And love the people in our lives
Like we've never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect
And more often wear a smile
Remembering that this special dash
Might only last a little while.

So when your eulogy is being read
With your lifes actions to rehash
Would you be proud of the things they say
About how you spent your dash?

Cos that dash stands for all the time
That you spent alive on earth
And only those who loved you
Know what that little line is worth

It matters not how much you own
The cars the house the cash
What matters is how you live and love
And how you spend your dash

What matters is how you live and love
And how you spend your dash.

Letting Our Anger Out

It's okay to be angry, but it isn't healthy to be resentful. Regardless of what we learned as children, no matter what we saw role modeled, we can learn to deal with our anger in ways that are healthy for us and for those around us. We can have our angry feelings. We can connect with them, own them, and feel them, express them, release them, and be done with them. (be aware)

We can learn to listen to what anger is telling us about what we want and need in order to take care of ourselves.

Sometimes we can even indulge in angry feelings that aren't justified. Feelings are just feelings; there is no morality in the feeling, only in our behavior. We can feel angry without hurting or abusing others or ourselves. We can learn to deal with anger in ways that benefit our relationships instead of ways that harm them.

If we don't feel our angry feelings today, we will need to face them tomorrow.

Today, I will let myself feel my anger. I will express my anger appropriately, without guilt. Then I will be done with it.

Accepting Love -- Any Love



Many of us have worked too hard to make relationships work; sometimes those relationships didn't have a chance because the other person was unavailable or refused to participate.

To compensate for the other person's unavailability, we worked too hard. We may have done all or most of the work. This may mask the situation for a while, but we usually get tired. Then, when we stop doing all the work, we notice there is no relationship, or we're so tired we don't care.

Doing all the work in a relationship is not loving, giving, or caring. It is self-defeating and relationship defeating. It creates the illusion of a relationship when in fact there may be no relationship. It enables the other person to be irresponsible for his or her share. Because that does not meet our needs, we ultimately feel victimized.

In our best relationships, we all have temporary periods where one person participates more than the other. This is normal. But as a permanent way of participating in relationships, it leaves us feeling tired, worn out, needy, and angry.'

We can learn to participate a reasonable amount, and then let the relationship find it's own life. Are we doing all the calling? Are we doing all the initiating? Are we doing all the giving? Are we the one talking about feelings and striving for intimacy?

Are we doing all the waiting, the hoping, and the work?

We can let go. If the relationship is meant to be, it will be, and it will become what it is meant to be. We do not help that process by trying to control it. We do not help the other person, the relationship, or ourselves by trying to force it or by doing all the work.

Let it be. Wait and see. Stop worrying about making it happen. See what happens and strive to understand if that is what you want.

Today, I will stop doing all the work in my relationships. I will give myself and the other person the gift of requiring both people to participate. I will accept the natural level my relationships reach when I do my share and allow the other person to choose what his or her share will be. I can trust my relationships to reach their own level. I do not have to do all the work; I need only do my share.

Wednesday Words Of Wisdom -- Denial

Denial

Denial is fertile breeding ground for the behaviors we call codependent: controlling, focusing on others, and neglecting ourselves. Illness and compulsive or addictive behaviors can emerge during denial.

Denial can be confusing because it resembles sleeping. We're not really aware we're doing it until we're done doing it. Forcing ourselves - or anyone else - to face the truth usually doesn't help. We won't face the facts until we are ready. Neither, it seems, will anyone else. We may admit to the truth for a moment, but we won't let ourselves know what we know until we feel safe, secure, and prepared enough to deal and cope with it.

Talking to friends who know, love, support, encourage, and affirm us helps.

Being gentle, loving, and affirming with ourselves helps. Asking ourselves, and our Higher Power, to guide us into and through change helps.

The first step toward acceptance is denial. The first step toward moving through denial is accepting that we may be in denial, and then gently allowing ourselves to move through.

*****God, help me feel safe and secure enough today to accept what I need to accept.****

Wednesday Words

Detaching With Love:
Sometimes people we love do things we don't like or approve of. WE react. They react. Before long, we're all reacting to each other, and the problem escalates.
When do we detatch? When we're hooked into a reaction of anger, guilt or shame. When we get hooked into a power-play -- an attempt to control or force others to do something they don't want to do. When the way we're reacting isn't helping the other person or solving the problem. When the way we're reacting is hurting us.
Often, it's time to detatch when detachemnt appears to be the least likely, or possible, thing to do.
The first step toward detachment is understanding that reacting & controlling don't help. The next step is getting peaceful -- gettin centered & restoring our balance.
Talk a walk. Leave the room. Go to a meeting. Take a long, hot bath. Call a friend. Call on God. Breathe deeply. Find peace. From that place of peace & centering will emerge an answer, a solution.

***Today I will surrender & trust that the answer is near.

Taking Care Of Ourselves

It's healthy, wise & loving to be considerate & responsive to the feelings & needs of others, That's different from care taking. Care taking is a self-defeating & certainly, a relationship-defeating behavior - a behavior that backfires & can cause us to feel resentful & victimized - because ultimatley, what we feel, want & need will come to the surface.

Some people seem to invite emotional care taking. We can learn to refuse the invitation. We can be concerned; we can be loving, when possible; but we can place value on our own needs & feelings too. Part of recovery means learning to pay attention to, & place importance on, wheat we feel, want & need, because to see that there are clear, predictable & usually undesirable consequences when we don't.

Be patient & gentle w/yourself as you learn to do this. Be understanding w/yourself when you slip back into the old behavior of emotional care taking & self-neglect.

But stop the cycle today. We do not have to feel responsible for others. We can learn to let ourselves feel good about taking responsibilities for our needs & feelings.

****TODAY, I WILL EVALUATE WHETHER I'VE SLIPPED INTO MY OLD BEHAVIOR OF TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANOTHER'S FEELINGS & NEEDS, WHILE NEGLECTING MY OWN. I WILL OWN MY POWER, RIGHT & RESPONSIBILITY TO PLACE VALUE ON MYSELF****

John Michael Montgomery 'Life's A Dance'



Life's A Dance

When I was fourteen I was falling fast
For a blue eyed girl in my homeroom class
Trying to find the courage to ask her out
Was like trying to get oil from a waterspout
What she would have said I can't say
I never did ask and she moved away
But I learned something from my blue eyed girl
Sink or swim you gotta give it a whirl

Life's a dance you learn as you go
Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow
Don't worry about what you don't know
Life's a dance you learn as you go

The longer I live the more I believe
You do have to give if you wanna recieve
There's a time to listen, a time to talk
And you might have to crawl even after you walk
Had sure things blow up in my face
Seen the longshot, win the race
Been knocked down by the slamming door
Picked myself up and came back for more

Life's a dance you learn as you go
Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow
Don't worry about what you don't know
Life's a dance you learn as you go

Life's a dance you learn as you go
Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow
Don't worry about what you don't know
Life's a dance you learn as you go
Life's a dance you learn as you go
Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow
Don't worry about what you don't know
Life's a dance you learn as you go

Life's a dance
Life's a dance
Life's a dance
Take a chance on love
Life's a dance
You learn as you go


**Yuo need to twirl around, get your feet straight from time to time, you need to step on some feet to learn.....enjoy the ride & don't worry, you'll learn as you go, I know I am!

TAKE ME AS I AM

I find comfort & joy & relaxation in Music.

Take me or leave me, your choice........





Radiator says 95,
But I ain't felt a drop of heat all night,
Here in this motel,
There ain't no tellin' me nothin'.

I come here five nights a week,
To clean the toilets and change these sheets.
My name's Maggie Duran baby ain't that somethin'.
[Chorus]
If you want it,
Come and get it,
If you want it, come and get it,
But understand, You take me as I am.

I know these corners,
I know these streets.
Curb-side prophet there yellin' at me.
He can save my soul for a drink and a dollar.

Yeah he's yellin' about my tattoo's,
We all live with the scars we choose.
Yeah, they might hurt like hell,
But they all make us stronger.

If you want it,
Come and get it,
If you want it, come and get it,
But understand, You take me as I am.

Slow to trust, but I'm quick to love,
I wish too hard, and I give too much,
I ain't sayin' I'm perfect,
But I promise I'm worth it.

Now I'm standin' here in front of you,
Tell me boy, what you gonna do,
My name's Maggie Duran I said ain't that somethin'

[Chorus]

Home Sweet Home...

Could I ask for any better place to be and live? Allows anyone to wash troubles away......



WISH: For all to see. For all to enjoy. For all to breathe. For all to stop & rest, at any site! I beleive this makes a difference!

"Wishing"



Sometimes it’s a pair of old faded denim
I know it’s gonna fit me like a friend
Or some radio song you can’t help but sing along
Wishing they’d spin it over and over again

Could be the windows down on a Sunday drive
Smell of rain on a summer night
Anything that brings a little more comfort my way
But sometimes, there’s those times
It’s gotta be you

CHORUS
I keep telling myself I’m movin’ on
But I’m stumbling
Believin’ my heart was strong enough
And now I’m wanderin’
But every step I take that leads me away
Just circles back to your door
Wishin’ I didn’t love you anymore

I’ve tried turning to the arms of someone new
But I can’t seem to fool this fool
I’ve seen closin’ times with every bottle dry
And I’ve seen days alone in my own room
I’ve asked God and magazines, stacks of books and movie screens
Anything to bring a little more comfort my way
But sometimes, there’s those times
It’s gotta be you

CHORUS
I keep tellin’ myself I’m movin’ on
But I’m stumbling
Believin’ my heart was strong enough
And now I’m wandering
‘Cause every step I take that leads me away
Just circles back to your door
Wishin’ I didn’t love you anymore
Will you give me more?

I’ve done everything I can to forget
If there is a way, I ain’t found it yet

I keep tellin’ myself I’m movin’ on
Believin’ my heart was strong
But every step I take that leads me away
Just circles back to your door
Wishin’ I didn’t love you
What I’d give if I could touch you
Wishin’ I didn’t love you anymore

Leona Lewis - Happy



HAPPY

someone once told me
that you have to choose
what you win or lose
you cant have everything
don’t you take chances
you might feel the pain
don’t you love in vain
cause love wont set you free
i could stand by the side
and watch this life pass me by
so unhappy but safe as could be

(Chorus)
so what if it hurts me
so what if i break down
so what if this world just throws me off the edge
my feet run out of ground
i gotta find my place
i wanna hear my sound
don’t care about other pain in front of me
cause i’m just tryna be happy, yea
just wanna be happy, yea

holding on tightly
just cant let it go
just tryna play my roll
slowly disappear, oooh
well all these tears
they feel like they’re the same
just different faces, different names
get me outta here
well i can stand by the side
and watch this life pass me by
pass me by

(Chorus)
so what if it hurts me
so what if i break down
so what if this world just throws me off the edge
my feet run out of ground
i gotta find my place
i wanna hear my sound
don’t care about other pain in front of me
cause i’m just tryna be happy
just wanna be happy
oooh

so any turns that i cant see
ill count a stranger on this road
but don’t say victim
don’t say anything

(Chorus)
so what if it hurts me
so what if i break down
so what if this world just throws me off the edge
my feet run out of ground
i gotta find my place
i wanna hear my sound
don’t care about all the pain in front of me
cause i’m just tryna be happy
just wanna be happy

Sara Bareilles - King Of Anything



"King Of Anything"

Oh (oh oh oh)
Oh (oh oh oh)
Oh (oh oh oh)
Oh (oh oh oh)

Keep drinkin' coffee
Stare me down across the table
While I look outside

So many things I'd say if only I were able
But I just keep quiet
And count the cars that pass by

You've got opinions, man
We're all entitled to 'em
But I never asked

So let me thank you for time
And try to not waste any more of mine
Get out of here fast

I hate to break it you babe
But I'm not drowning
There's no one here to save

Who cares if you disagree
You are not me
Who made you king of anything
So you dare tell me who to be
Who died
And made you king of anything

Oh (oh oh oh)
Oh (oh oh oh)
Oh (oh oh oh)
Oh (oh oh oh)

You sound so innocent
All full of good intent
You swear you know best

But you expect me to
Jump up on board with you
Right off into your dellusional sunset

I'm not the one who's lost
With no direction oh
But you won't ever see

You're so busy makin' maps
With my name on them in all caps
You got the talkin' down just not the listening

And who cares if you disagree
You are not me
Who made you king of anything
So you dare tell me who to be
Who died
And made you king of anything

All my life
I've tried
To make everybody happy while I
Just hurt
And hide
Waitin' for someone to tell me it's my turn
To decide

Oh (oh oh oh)
Oh (oh oh oh)
Oh (oh oh oh)
Oh (oh oh oh)

Who cares if you disagree
You are not me
Who made you king of anything
So you dare tell me who to be
Who died
And made you king of anything

Who cares if you disagree
You are not me
Who made you king of anything
So you dare tell me who to be
Who died
And made you king of anything

Let me hold your crown, babe
Oh oh
Ah

A real cute song......ENJOY!!!

Marvelous Monday & Meditation: 8/30/2010

Accepting Our Best

We don't have to do it any better than we can - ever.

Do our best for the moment, and then let it go. If we have to redo it, we can do our best in another moment, later.

We can never do more or better than we are able to do at the moment. We punish ourselves and make ourselves feel crazy by expecting more than our reasonable best for now.

Striving for excellence is a positive quality.

Striving for perfection is self-defeating.

Did someone tell us or expect us to do or give or be more? Did someone always withhold approval?

There comes a time when we feel we have done our best. When that time comes, let it go.

There are days when our best is less than we hoped for. Let those times go too. Start over tomorrow. Work things through, until our best becomes better.

Empowering and complimenting ourselves will not make us lazy. It will nurture us and enable us to give, do, and be our best.

Today, I will do my best, and then let it go. God, help me stop criticizing myself so I can start appreciating how far I've come.

That's the Beat of a Heart



Sometimes it's hard to don't wanna look over your shoulder
'Cause you don't want to remember where you've been
There'll come a time you die,
If you could only hold her
'Cause I know that's where I am

So listen with all your heart
Hold it inside forever
You may find all your dreams have already come true
Look inside and find the part that's leading you
'Cause that's the beat of a heart

Sometimes you'll drown it out with all your rage and thunder
Sometimes you'll drown it out with all your tears
There'll come a time when you hear it and you'll wonder
"Where in the world have I been?"

So listen with all your heart
Hold it inside forever
You may find all your dreams have already come true
Look inside and find the part that's leading you,
'Cause that's the beat of a heart
No one can tell you how to get there
It's a road you take all by yourself
(All by yourself)
All by yourself

So listen with all your heart
Hold it inside forever
You may find all your dreams have already come true
Look inside and find the part that's leading you
'Cause that's the beat of
Oh it's the sweetest sound,
'Cause that's the beat of a heart

Another well put-together song.
True meaning.
True words.
A road you;ll take all by yourself...............

P!nk - Glitter In The Air (GRAMMYs on CBS)



GLITTER IN THE AIR

Have you ever fed a lover with just your hands?
Close your eyes and trust it, just trust it
Have you ever thrown a fist full of glitter in the air?
Have you ever looked fear in the face
And said I just don't care?

It's only half past the point of no return
The tip of the iceberg, the sun before the burn
The thunder before lightning, the breath before the phrase
Have you ever felt this way?

Have you ever hated yourself for staring at the phone?
Your whole life waiting on the ring to prove you're not alone
Have you ever been touched so gently you had to cry?
Have you ever invited a stranger to come inside?

It's only half past the point of oblivion
The hourglass on the table, the walk before the run
The breath before the kiss and the fear before the flames
Have you ever felt this way?

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

There you are, sitting in the garden
Clutching my coffee, calling me sugar
You called me sugar

Have you ever wished for an endless night?
Lassoed the moon and the stars and pulled that rope tight
Have you ever held your breath and asked yourself
Will it ever get better than tonight? Tonight


I can't tell you how many times I have listened to this POWERFUL song......the video is AMAZING, POWERFUL, STUNNING, CLASSY, TAKES MY BREATH AWAY!!
AS always, I find solitude in music. I find happiness. I find a peace I can't find elsewhere.
I interpt song pretty good & the ones I find, are powerful & hit home.
The joy I feel w/music in my life, are words I can't begin to explain.
I do know there are two people in my life, that get me, really get me.......one is my counselor & the other, is CR. And if I could speak to "music" they'd get me too....wishing I could go that route......but til then, this one tops my list & goose bumps now everytime I hear Pink sing this somg & her interpation, again, words escape me!
BEAUTIFUL!
ENJOY!

Wednesday Words.......

Healthy Limits

Boundaries are vital to recovery. Having and setting healthy limits is connected to all phases of recovery: growing in self-esteem, dealing with feelings, and learning to really love and value ourselves.

Boundaries emerge from deep within. They are connected to letting go of guilt and shame, and to changing our beliefs about what we deserve. As our thinking about this becomes clearer, so will our boundaries.

Boundaries are also connected to a Higher Timing than our own. We’ll set a limit when we’re ready, and not a moment before. So will others.

There’s something magical about reaching that point of becoming ready to set a limit.

We know we mean what we say; others take us seriously too. Things change, not because we’re controlling others, but because we’ve changed.

Today I will trust that I will learn, grow, and set the limits I need in my life at my own pace. This timing need only be right for me.

George Strait-The Breath You Take

I am not a huge George Strait fan, but this song & the chorus, especially........hits home......I hope you enjoy



He looks up from second base dad’s up in the stands
He saw the hit, the run, the slide there ain’t no bigger fan
In the parking lot after the game he said
“Dad I thought you had a plane to catch”
He smiled and said “Yeah son I did”

Chours
Life’s not the breaths you take
The breathing in and out
That gets you through the day
Ain’t what it’s all about
Ya just might miss the point
Try’n to win the race
Life’s not the breaths you take
But the moments that take your breath away


Fast forward fifteen years
And a thousand miles away
Boy’s built a life he’s got a wife
And a baby due today
He hears a voice saying “I made it son
He said “I told you dad you didn’t have to come”
He smiles and says ”Yeah I know you did”

Chours

Just like it took my breath when she was born
Just like it took my breath away when dad took his last that morn

Life’s not the breaths you take
The breathing in and out
That gets you through the day
Ain’t what it’s all about
Ya just might miss the point
If ya don’t slow down the pace
Life’s not the breaths you take
But the moments that take your breath away

(a day late) Wednesday Words of Wisdom -- Have Some Fun


"Have some fun. Loosen up a bit. Enjoy life!
We do not have to be so somber & serious. We do not have to be so reflective, so critical, so bound up within ourselves & the rigid parameters others, & often ourselves, have placed around us.
This is life, not a funeral service. Have some fun w/it. Enter into it. Participate. Experment. Take a risk. Be spontanous. Do not always be so concerned wbout doing right, doing the appropriate thing.
Do not always be so concerned about what others will think or say. What they think & say. Do not be afrai of making a mistake. So not be so fearful & proper. Do not inhibit yourself so much.
God did not intend us to be so inhibited, so restricted, so controlled. These repressive parameters are what otehr people have imposed on us, what we have allowed to be done to us.
We were created fully human. We were given emotions, desires, hopes, dreams, feelings. There is an alive, excited, fun-loving child in us somewhere! Let it come out! Let it come alive! Let it have some fun - not just for two hours on Saturday evening. Bring it w/us, let it help us enjoy this gift of being alive, being fully human, & being who we are.
So many riles. So much shame we've lived with. It simply isn't necessary. We have been brainwashed. It is time now to free ourselves, le ourselves go, & enter fully human into a full life.
Don't worry/ We will learn our lesson when necessary. We have learned discipline. We will not go awry. What will happen is that we will begin enjoying life. We will begin enjoying & experiencing our whoe self. We can trust ourselves. We haev boundaries now. We have our program for a foundation. We can afford to experiment & experience. We are in touch w/ourselves & our Higher Power. We are being guided, but frozen, inanimate object cannot be guided. It cannot even be moved.
Have some fun. Loosen up a bit. break a few rules. We won't be punished by God. We do not haev to allow people to punish us. And we can stop punishing ourselves. As long as we're hare & alive, let's begin to live."




"today i will lwt myself have some fun w/life. i will loosen up a bit, knowing i won't crack & break. God, help me let go of my need to be so inhibited, proper, & repressed. help me inject a big dose of life into myself by letting myself be fully alive & human"

KENNY WORMALD WILL STAR IN THE FOOTLOOSE REMAKE !!!

Words of Wisdon - Wednesday "BEING IS ENOUGH"

"We are not always clear about what we are experiencing, or why.
In the midst of grief, transition, transformation, learning, healing, or discipline - it's difficult to have perspective.
That's because we have not learned the lesson yet. We are in the midst of it. The gift of clarity has not yet arrived.
Our need to control can manifest itself as a need to know exactly what's going on. We can not alsways know. Sometimes, we need to let ourselves be & trust that clarity will come later, in retrospect.
If we are confused, that is what we are supposed to be. The confusion is tempoary. We shall see. The lesson, the purpose, shall reveal itself - in time, in its own time.
It will all make perfect sense - later."

**Today, I will stop straining to know what I don't know, to see what I can't see, to undrestand what I don't yet understand. I will trust the being is sufficient, & let go of my need to figure things out."

"Welcome To Wherever You Are"



"Maybe we're different, but we're still the same
We all got the blood of Eden, running through our veins
I know sometimes it's hard for you to see
You come between just who you are and who you wanna be

If you feel alone, and lost and need a friend
Remember every new beginning, is some beginning's end

[Chorus]
Welcome to wherever you are
This is your life, you made it this far
Welcome, you gotta believe
That right here right now, you're exactly where you're supposed to be
Welcome, to wherever you are

When everybody's in, and you're left out
And you feel your drowning, in a shadow of a doubt
Everyones a miracle in their own way
Just listen to yourself, not what other people say

When it seems you're lost, alone and feeling down
Remember everybody's different
Just take a look around

[Chorus]

Be who you want to, be who you are
Everyones a hero, everyones a star

When you wanna give up, and your hearts about to break
Remember that you're perfect, God makes no mistakes

[Chorus] "







I am here.
I am alive.
I am living my life, one day @ a time.
I have Strength.
I have Faith.
I Believe.
I am a Survivor.

Read these words to this song.
Really listen & hear the words.
How empowering s this song. It is!

I always find my relief in music.
I find my Peace.
I find soothing words & melodies calm me.

Things do happen for a reason, I am a firm believer of this.
When one door closes another does open. So whether you think something is ending, something is starting new.

It's what you do w/this that is important can make a difference. Maybe for you alone, but heck, nothing lost if nothing gained! Nothing ventured, nothing gained, so take that leap, do it, trust me it's a good jump!

Yes, take time for yourself, but don't be alone!
Read.
Journal.
Get some advice, again, all that will happen is you may learn something or even something about yourself!

ENJOY!!!!

Something For The Pain

Happiness, it's been no friend to me
But forever after ain't what it's all cracked up to be
Yeah, I had a taste, you were my fantasy
But I lost my faith when I hit reality
I don't need no Guru to tell me what to do
When you feeling like a headline on yesterday's news

Come on , Come on, Come on
Give me something for the pain
Give me something for the blues
Give me something for the pain when I feel I've been danglin' from
A hang-man's noose
Give me something for the pain
Give me something I can use
To get me through the night
Make me feel all right, something like you

Loneliness has found a home in me
My suitcase and guitar are my only family
I've tried to need someone, like they needed me
I opened up my heart but all I did was bleed
I don't need no lover, just to get screwed
They don't make a bandage that is going to cover my bruise

Come on , Come on, Come on
Give me something for the pain
Give me something for the blues
Give me something for the pain when I feel I've been danglin' from
A hang-man's noose
Give me something for the pain
Give me something I can use
To get me through the night
Make me feel all right, something like you

Pull me under (help I'm falling)
Run through my veins (night is calling)
To a place (feels like I'm flying)
Where I feel no pain (Christ - I'm dying)
Be the pillow under my head
Give me cover when I'm in my bed
Take me higher than I've ever been
Take me down and back again
Come to me, be my disguise
Open your coat, let me crawl inside
Come on, Come on, Come on

Come on , Come on, Come on
Give me something for the pain
Give me something for the blues
Give me something for the pain when I feel I've been danglin' from
A hang-man's noose
Give me something for the pain
Give me something I can use
To get me through the night
Make me feel all right, something like you

Come on , Come on, Come on
Give me something for the pain
Give me something for the blues
Give me something for the pain when I feel I've been danglin' from
A hang-man's noose
Give me something for the pain
Give me something I can use
To get me through the night
Make me feel all right, something like you

The Cab Ride

The
Cab Ride

I arrived at the address and honked the horn.
After waiting a few minutes
I walked to the
door and knocked.. 'Just a minute', answered a
frail, elderly voice. I could hear something
being dragged across the floor.


After
a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in
her 90's stood before me. She was wearing a
print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned
on it, like somebody out of a 1940's
movie.


By her side was a small nylon
suitcase. The apartment looked as if no one had
lived in it for years. All the furniture was
covered with sheets.


There were no
clocks on the walls, no knickknacks or utensils
on the counters. In the corner was a cardboard
box filled with photos and
glassware.


'Would you carry my bag
out to the car?' she said. I took the suitcase
to the cab, then returned to assist the
woman.


She took my arm and we walked
slowly toward the curb.


She kept
thanking me for my kindness. 'It's nothing', I
told her.. 'I just try to treat my passengers
the way I would want my mother
treated'.


'Oh, you're such a good
boy', she said. When we got in the cab, she gave
me an address and then asked, 'Could you drive
through downtown?'


'It's not the
shortest way,' I answered
quickly..


'Oh, I don't mind,' she
said. 'I'm in no hurry. I'm on my way to a
hospice'..


I looked in the rear-view
mirror. Her eyes were glistening.. 'I don't have
any family left,' she continued in a soft
voice.. 'The doctor says I don't have very
long.' I quietly reached over and shut off the
meter.


'What route would you like me
to take?' I asked.


For the next two
hours, we drove through the city. She showed me
the building where she had once worked as an
elevator
operator.


We drove through the
neighborhood where she and her husband had lived
when they were newlyweds She had me pull up in
front of a furniture warehouse that had once
been a ballroom where she had gone dancing as a
girl.


Sometimes she'd ask me to slow
in front of a particular building or corner and
would sit staring into the darkness, saying
nothing.


As the first hint of sun was
creasing the horizon, she suddenly said, 'I'm
tired. Let's go now'.


We drove in
silence to the address she had given me. It was
a low building, like a small convalescent home,
with a driveway that passed under a
portico..


Two orderlies came out to
the cab as soon as we pulled up. They were
solicitous and intent, watching her every move.
They must have been expecting her.


I
opened the trunk and took the small suitcase to
the door. The woman was already seated in a
wheelchair.


'How much do I owe you?'
she asked, reaching into her
purse.


'Nothing,' I
said


'You have to make a living,' she
answered.


'There are other
passengers,' I responded.


Almost
without thinking, I bent and gave her a hug. She
held onto me tightly.


'You gave an
old woman a little moment of joy,' she
said.
'Thank you.'


I squeezed her
hand, and then walked into the dim morning
light.. Behind me, a door shut. It was the sound
of the closing of a life..


I didn't
pick up any more passengers that shift. I drove
aimlessly lost in thought. For the rest of that
day, I could hardly talk. What if that woman had
gotten an angry driver, or one who was impatient
to end his shift?

What
if I had refused to take the run, or had honked
once, then driven away?


On a quick
review, I don't think that I have done anything
more important in my life.


We're
conditioned to think that our lives revolve
around great moments.


But great
moments often catch us unaware-beautifully
wrapped in what others may consider a small
one.


PEOPLE MAY NOT REMEMBER EXACTLY
WHAT YOU DID, OR WHAT YOU SAID ~BUT~THEY WILL
ALWAYS REMEMBER HOW YOU MADE THEM
FEEL.


You won't get any big surprise
in 10 days if you send this to ten people. But,
you might help make the world a little kinder
and more compassionate by sending.
it on and
reminding us that often it is the random acts of
kindness that most benefit all of
us.


Thank you, my
friend...



Life
may not be the party we hoped for, but while we
are here we might as well dance.




I Hope You Dance (I know I do!!!)

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat, but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance

Chorus: And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance,
I hope you dance (dance), I hope you dance (dance)

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin’ might mean takin’ chances, but they're worth takin’
Lovin’ might be a mistake but it's worth makin’
Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out, reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance,
I hope you dance.. (time is a wheel in constant motion always)
I hope you dance... (rolling us along)
I hope you dance...(tell me who wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
I hope you dance.... (where those years have gone)

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance,


dance (dance) (hold for 2 4 counts), I hope you dance (dance),
I hope you dance... (dance) (time is wheel in constant motion always)
I hope you dance...(rolling us along)
I hope you dance (dance) (tell me who wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
I hope you dance.. (dance)(where those years have gone)
(tell me(dance) who wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
(where(dance) those years have gone)

I will not settle



Fearless love

Not just in anyone else, but for me & within me too!

When I woke up I was 17
You kissed my lips in a bad bad dream
Showed me things aren't what they appear to be
Called me angel and set me free
You gave me life in the cold cold dark
But you ran away in the mornings spark
Made me think that reality
Is not where I want to be

I am what I am and
I am what I am afraid of
Oh what am I afraid of
I need a fearless love
Don't need to fear the end
If you can't hold me now
You will never hold me again
I want to live my life
Pursuing all my happiness
I want a fearless love
I won't settle for anything less

I've walked my path had worlds collide
I lost my way and I fooled my pride
This lover's ache wouldn't feel so strange
If I could only change

But I am what I am and
I am what I am afraid of
So what am I afraid of
I need a fearless love
Don't need to fear the end
If you can't hold me now
You will never hold me again
I want to live my life
Pursuing all my happiness
I want a fearless love
I won't settle for anything less

Now I'm not here to lay the blame
I understand when you hold a flame
Heads will shake heads will turn
And sometimes you just get burned
The sings that have just hit me, hit me like a ton of bricks! As I have written before, I turn to music to feed my soul, and lately, I have some good songs to help me heal!
Talk about feeling comfortable, safe, confident, empowered, and stronger than I have in a long time.
Questions are getting answered.
Problems are getting solved.
Strength is being built.
I know I still have a long road ahead of my healing & sould searching, but lately, I am feeling good!
I will not settle! I am the best!

Boy am I wrong!!!! Wrong Baby Wrong Baby



As I stated before, all is coming together for me, slowly, however, just when I found a new song, a new message, like Rascall Flatts & a previous post, here is my 2nd favorite all time female artist & POOF, here is my new motto!!!!

Thank you Martina McBride - Wrong Baby Wrong Baby

The last time I found a song that really hit home was my MM & that was Anyway.....this is right up there!! I hope you enjoy!



Wrong baby wrong baby wrong
It ain’t the end of the world (at times it does feel like the end of world, but I pick myself back up & brush myself off)
Don’t you worry pretty girl
Cause now that he’s gone baby gone baby gone
You got nothing to lose
Count the minutes if you want to
It won’t be long baby long baby long
‘Til you find somebody new

Come on now
Everyone falls down
Everyone crawls now and then
Then they get up again
You cry if you want to
That’s what we all do
But if you think you’ll never move on you’re wrong baby (my stars are all begining to line up, I am stronger than I give myself credit for--Thanks Melody!)

Cry baby cry baby cry (oh you bet baby, don't let anything linger, let it all out--Get it out, Get over it, Get on w/your life, my three G's!)
Go on and let it all out
I ain’t leavin’ you now
And we can fly baby fly baby fly
Let’s share a bottle of wine
We can laugh about the good times
And you’ll know why baby why baby why
It’s gonna be alright

Come on now
Everyone falls down
Everyone crawls now and then
Then they get up again
You cry if you want to
That’s what we all do
But if you think you’ll never move on you’re wrong baby wrong (I;ve been wrong before, so this won't be the last)

Oh you ain’t gone
baby wrong baby wrong
There’s nothing wrong with movin on (put that one foot in front of each other, keep moving & keep friends close by to keep you motovated when your foot gets stuck in the mud--Thanks Charlene & Lisa!)
When you know he’s good and gone

Come on now
Everyone falls down
Everyone crawls now and then (I don't know about crawling, maybe running fast, but that's running away, deal w/all, get the help you need and it's ok to admit that you need to crawl once in a while)
Then they get up again
You cry if you want to
That’s what we all do

Come on now
Everyone falls down
Everyone crawls now and then
Then they get up again
You cry if you want to
That’s what we all do
But if you think you’ll never move on you’re wrong baby wrong
You’re wrong baby wrong
Wrong baby wrong baby wrong

I don't like being wrong. Being wrong in my opinion, is an opportunity to learn, to grow & to change, all for the better. I am a better person for all my wrong's throughout my life. There are no regrets. I have learned.
If I could go back & change some situations, yes I would.
All does happen for a reason & I am a firm believer, however, sometimes, that doubt eats you alive, me alive.....that's when the help is GRAND!
Here's to me & picking myself up, and being wrong!!!

UNSTOPPABLE -- My new Theme



Rascall Flatts -- Unstoppable

Yes, this was the song for the USA Olympians, but listen, really listen: I am stealing this song. Very appropriate for me, not just @ this particular time in my life, but from other struggles I have been thru. It is all coming together for me......


Yeah yeah yeah..
Hey

So, so you made a lot of mistakes
Walked down the road a little sideways
Cracked a brick when you hit the wall
Yeah, you've had a pocket full of regrets
Pull you down faster than a sunset
Hey, it happens to us all

When the cold hard rain just won't quit
And you can't see your way out of it

CHORUS
You find your faith has been lost and shaken
You take back what's been taken
Get on your knees and dig down deep
You can do what you think is impossible
Keep on believing, don't give in
It'll come and make you whole again
It always will, it always does
Love is unstoppable

Love, it weather any storm
Bring you back to being born again
oh, it's a helping hand when you need it most
A lighthouse shinning on the coast
That never goes dim

When your heart is full of doubt
And you think that there's no way out

CHORUS
You find your faith has been lost and shaken
You take back what's been taken
Get on your knees and dig down deep
You can do what you think is impossible
Keep on believing, don't give in
It'll come and make you whole again
It always will, it always does
Love is unstoppable

Like a river keeps on rolling
Like the north wind blowing
Don't it feel good knowing
Yeah

CHORUS
You find your faith has been lost and shaken
You take back what's been taken
Get on your knees and dig down deep
You can do what you think is impossible
Keep on believing, don't give in
It'll come and make you whole again
It always will, it always does
Love is unstoppable

Love is unstoppale
So you made a lot of mistakes
Walked down the road a little sideways
Love, love is unstoppable

Who??????

Not sure who the WHO is......Not sure When the WHO is.......Not sure if I want the WHO right now in my life.......It would be nice......I do know that I can stand on my two own feet, even thru tough times...but what I do know is this.......there is beauty in my struggle & "I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much." ~Mother Teresa

If you take the time to think of all the negative experiences in your life you will find that something positive came out of each one."

Superman Tonight - BonJovi

There's something about you
I want to rescue
I don't even know you
So what does that mean

Maybe I'm cynical
I'm painfully logical
You're tragic and beautiful
And that's good enough for me

You're looking for a hero, but it's just my old tattoo
Tonight I swear I'd sell my soul to be a hero for you

Who's going to save you (it would be very nice & comforting to share all I am & all I am experiencing, but I will not settle)
When the stars fall from your sky
And who's going to pull you in
When the tide gets too high
Who's going to hold you
When you turn out the lights
I won't lie I wish that I
Could be your superman tonight

If somebody sent you
An angel to save you
What would you tell him to turn him away

That your heart don't break
That your lips don't kiss
That life is just a lie
That heaven don't exist?

Who's going to save you
When the stars fall from your sky
And who's going to pull you in
When the tide gets too high
Who's going to hold you
When you turn out the lights
I won't lie I wish that I
Could be your superman tonight

Who's going to fix you
The next time you break down
Stranded alone by the side of the road
It's your baggage that's dragging you down
Don't look back (i need to look back to learn from my mistakes & to go forward w/a clear conscience)
Let it go

Ohhh, Ohhhhh

Who's going to save you
When the stars fall from your sky
And who's going to pull you in
When the tide gets too high
Who's going to hold you
When you turn out the lights
I won't lie I wish that I
Was that superman

Who's going to save you
When the stars fall from your sky
And who's going to pull you in
When the tide gets too high
Who's going to hold you
When you turn out the lights
I won't lie I wish that I
Could be your superman tonight

woooah, woooah, woooah ohhh
woooah, woooah, woooah ohhh
woooah, woooah, woooah ohhh
woooah, woooah, woooah ohhh

This new song from Bon Jovi has a clear message, to me @ least. I am not in a relationship, but working on me, a long journey. It would be nice to experience my journey w/this Superman, my Hero, my White-n-Shining Knight, but I won;t lie to myself, this journey is mine, mine ot hold onto, to grow & strenghten from........I am my own Superman......WOMAN!
