Theme Song.

I always have a song that is MY song for right now.

And this, this is my theme song. I love it. It always turns my day around if I’m feeling low. Not to mention that I think Michael Buble is amazing. I love his little-bit of swagger he has.

I’m Not Surprised
Not Everything Lasts
I’ve Broken My Heart So Many Times,
I Stop Keeping Track.
Talk Myself In
I Talk Myself Out
I Get All Worked Up
And Then I Let Myself Down.

I Tried So Very Hard Not To Loose It
I Came Up With A Million Excuses
I Thought I Thought Of Every Possibility

And I Know Someday That It’ll All Turn Out
You’ll Make Me Work So We Can Work To Work It Out
And I Promise You Kid That I’ll Give So Much More Than I Get
I Just Haven’t Met You Yet

Mmmmm ….

I Might Have To Wait
I’ll Never Give Up
I Guess It’s Half Timing
And The Other Half’s Luck
Wherever You Are
Whenever It’s Right
You Come Out Of Nowhere And Into My Life

And I Know That We Can Be So Amazing
And Baby Your Love Is Gonna Change Me
And Now I Can See Every Possibility

Mmmmm ……

And Somehow I Know That It Will All Turn Out
And You’ll Make Me Work So We Can Work To Work It Out
And I Promise You Kid I’ll Give So Much More Than I Get
I Just Haven’t Met You Yet

They Say All’s Fair
And In Love And War
But I Won’t Need To Fight It
We’ll Get It Right
And We’ll Be United

And I Know That We Can Be So Amazing
And Being In Your Life Is Gonna Change Me
And Now I Can See Every Single Possibility

Mmmm …..

And Someday I Know It’ll All Turn Out
And I’ll Work To Work It Out
Promise You Kid I’ll Give More Than I Get
Than I Get Than I Get Than I Get

Oh You Know It’ll All Turn Out
And You’ll Make Me Work So We Can Work To Work It Out
And I Promise You Kid To Give So Much More Than I Get
Yeah I Just Haven’t Met You Yet

I Just Haven’t Met You Yet
Oh Promise You Kid
To Give So Much More Than I Get

I Said Love Love Love Love Love Love Love …..
I Just Haven’t Met You Yet
Love Love Love …..
I Just Haven’t Met You Yet

What’s your theme song??

If you don’t have anything nice to say…


Don’t say it.

Don’t twitter it.

Maybe don’t blog it either.

I’ve been struggling with annoyance lately. People don’t seem to update their status’ unless it is to complain about something.

Yes, we know Mondays suck.
I’m sorry that you’re stuck in traffic.
You had a shitty week, and that sucks.

I get it. I do. But I don’t want to write about it. I don’t want to put more negativity out into the world. I really don’t.

What would happen if instead of commenting on the negative things going on, we look for the good things to comment on?

Today’s NPR StoryCorps was inspiring!!
It’s a beautiful day.
It’s a beautiful day in which I get to try again to not mess up what I yesterday. That’s pretty rad. This world of new days.

Maybe we should take some time to be grateful instead of bitching. AND if you really need some kind words, some loving, just ask for it. It’s amazing what happens when you ask those who love you for what you need.

Let’s spread love. Shall we?

Want to know what’s fun?

Losing your voice.

After a super fun night out Friday that consisted of moments like this one:
Followed by poor life choice’s including this 1/2 pound hot pocket (Who ever thought that was going to be a good option?!)

(I am going to make this picture smaller, cause it’s grossing me out)

I woke up Saturday with absolutely no voice. I have never lost my voice before, and lets just say, I am really really bad at it. I am sure annoyed my dear friends to no-end because not having a voice did not seem to stop me from trying to talk. Could they understand what I was saying? I would say about 50% of the time. And then, there was many-a-joke made about how maybe it was God trying to teach me to listen.

The best part of Friday was Olivia came over my way to meet all of my friends here. I was so excited when she called and told me she was coming she asked if I had been drinking….. I love Olivia so so very much I am so glad that she drove the hour to see this part of my life. And, of course, she fit in perfectly. Just like I knew she would.

Church was amazing Sunday morning. We’re beginning a new series on how to ruin your life. And whether you’re a Christian or not, the message is still really important. There are all these things that we put our value and time into, that are really never going to fulfill us. In Christianity we call it idolatry; things that we put before God.

To list a few top contenders our pastor mentioned things like money, being smart, attractiveness, relationships, work… they are the things that we worry about. That we’d be most stressed out if we lost them. The things we put our energy into. It’s an interesting thought to identify the things that are sucking all of our energy and emotions… but not building us back up.

My major concern is money. The one thing that makes me anxious, and keep me up at night. I am not sure if it’s just because I don’t have any (ha.) or because I dated an financial adviser for 3.5 years, or because money was never discussed in my house growing up without raised voices and slammed doors. I want to make sure that I never get into the cycle of “If I just made X amount, I’d be satisfied”… I do not want to live pay-check to pay-check. Or be overly concerned with over-drafting accounts or debt… but this isn’t necessarily a future goal that can only be achieved once I am making a certain amount.


Philippians 4:11-13
For I have learned to be content, whatever the circumstances may be. I know now how to live when things are difficult and I know how to live when things are prosperous. In general and in particular I have learned the secret of eating well or going hungry of facing either plenty of poverty. I am ready for anything through the strength of the One who lives within me

What do you think you spend too much energy on? Something that you could get caught in a cycle of “never good enough” and “never enough”?
