Affirmation Saturday

My power today lies in passion. Pursuing and expressing my hearts desire honors my love, passion, and beauty and is worth waiting, courting or crusading for. What I lack in external means, qualification or ability, I make up for with a true and dedicated heart. I am not a victim therefore I do not need to be rescued. I am empowered by patience or self-worth and my gift is emotional availability and devotion."

Words to live by.

Dalai Lama If we have a positive mental attitude, then even when surrounded by hostility, we shall not lack inner peace. On the other hand, if our mental attitude is more negative, influenced by fear, suspicion, helplessness, or self-loathing, then even when surrounded by our best friends, in a nice atmosphere and comfortable surroundings, we shall not be happy.


Dalai Lama Right from the moment of our birth, we are under the care and kindness of our parents, and then later on in our life when we are oppressed by sickness and become old, we are again dependent on the kindness of others. Since at the beginning and end of our lives we are so dependent on other's kindness, how can it be in ...the middle that we would neglect kindness towards others?

Profound thoughts at 2:30 AM

Death says,
Live; I am coming ...

Life says,
Live; I am here
I stumbled across those words tonight.... Live seems to be the common theme for the day.
Why the hell am I still wide awake?
No clue I'm just reluctant to face the vast emptiness of night and sleep.
I think I'm afraid of dreaming....which is a very odd thing for a dreamer to feel.

I looked up the lyrics...

You remind me I live in a shell,
Safe from the past,
and doing' okay,
but not very well.
No jolts, no surprises,
No crisis arises:
My life goes along as it should,
it's all very nice,
but not very good.
And I'm Ready To Take A Chance Again,
Ready to put my love on the line with you.
Been living with nothing to show for it;
You get what you get when you go for it,
And I'm Ready To Take Chance Again with you.
When she left me in all my despair,
I just held on,
My hopes were all gone.
Then I found you there.
And I'm Ready To Take A Chance Again
Ready To Take A Chance Again with you,
With you. 

Interesting lyrics....but I'm not sure they make much sense in my life at the moment. Then again maybe I'm too close to my life and can only see the dots of color rather than the actual picture.

Any thoughts gentle readers?

If it's a message from my subconscious or the verse.....why the hell Manilow?

Why am I possessed by a song I haven't heard in years?

I woke up this morning with a song just eating my head and I really can't figure it out.
I had no idea I even knew the lyrics to this song....I mean my god it's a Barry Manilow song (Cameron stop laughing) Manilow and I are a bit oil and waterish. Just give my songs here a listen and you'll get an idea of what my tastes are like but here I am with this song just STUCK in my head.

which song?

"Ready to take a chance"

Not even one of his big obnoxious ones...just a little obnoxious one...

Either the universe is sending me a message or I'm having some sort of pre-senility brain misfire

Every now and then some of the odd bits of knowledge break loose and float up to the surface and frequently it's songs I'm pretty used to that ...but....Manilow?

How did I learn the lyrics and tune to a Manilow song?

I always scream and change the station at the first note...but here it it's entire syrup coated glory in my head....on automatic repeat - full orchestra

What the hell?

It makes the day a bit more surreal.

And this is because I couldn't resist doing a design for the fun of it....

Sunday affirmation...because I missed Saturday...

When I believe in myself, so do others
I express my needs and feelings
I am my own unique self - special, creative and wonderful

I almost forgot..... Namaste bitches...

I'm tired of four things

Working insanely long hours for little return.....snow...borderline poverty... and stupid people.
and I seem to have a surplus of all of that.

There has to be a lesson here somewhere but I'm just not getting it.
