Songs with treasure

I see you!

Stop! “…what you’re doing… ’cause I’m about to ruin, the image and the style that you’re used to.” (Digital Underground). Apologies for those who don’t know me but it is very normal behavior for me to break out into song. ;D
I’m finished now…

Stop! Take a breath. Clear your mind. The next time you encounter a person any person…a loved one, a stranger an enemy…just see (not with your eyes) them. Attempt to see past their form, their body, clothing even persona. Seek first to understand… And I think this doesn’t mean use your brain I think this means listen. Wonder…be curious…be neutral…just “be” about every person that comes into your life!

Not to mention every person you know…knows something you don’t!

P.S. After letting my daughter read this post…she reminded me that…some people are just the way they are for no good reason. And I totally agree some people are just Jackasses…but I say celebrate their Jackassery!!!!

Words

After a very weird break up… From a 42-year-old man…Via a texted picture from Pinterest of a T-shirt… Basically calling me a “bitch”…what the hell…I’ll show you

seriously!?!?!

My daughter suggested I send him this song. She however warned me that it had “words” in it. “Words” is our code for curse words. I asked which words… And she said…”all of them”!

Love that girl and this one too!

Listen here…
Sweet As Whole
Sara Bareilles

Love

“…soon as you start to make room for the parts
That aren’t you, it gets harder to bloom in a garden
Of love…”

This is from a Sara Bareilles song… Bottle it Up She is a poet… Absolutely love the heart and soul of this songstress. I’ve seen her in too many concerts not to think I know her.

As soon as you veer off of your path you’re missing what you seek. Are you positioning yourself? Are you doing things to win the love of someone else…a friend/lover or something that does not give back to you a career/hobby…instead of loving yourself? So often people tell you to keep trying don’t give up but sometimes if it’s not working maybe you’re going the long way…never the “wrong” way…just maybe the long way. Just breathe in and out and let life unfold.

The lyrics for your reading pleasure…so many gifts of insight all around us!

There’ll be girls across the nation
That will eat this up
Babe, I know that it’s your soul
But could you bottle it up?

Get down to the heart of it
No, it’s my heart, you’re shit out of your luck
Don’t make me tell you again
My love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love

I am aiming to be somebody, that somebody trusts
With a delicate soul, I don’t claim to know much
Except soon as you start to make room for the parts
That aren’t you, it gets harder to bloom in a garden
Of love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love

Only thing I ever could need
Only one good thing worth trying to be

And it’s love, love, love, love
I do it for love, love, love, love

We can understand the sentiment you’re saying to us
Oh, but sensible selfs, could you kindly shut up?
And get started at keeping your part of the bargain
Aw please, little darlin’, you’re killing me sweetly
With love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love

Only thing I ever could need
Only one good thing worth trying to be

And it’s love, love, love, love
I do it for love, love, love, love

Started as a flicker, meant to be a flame
Skin has gotten thicker but it burns the same
Still a baby in a cradle, got to take my first fall
Baby’s getting next to nowhere with a back against the wall

You meant to make me happy, make me sad
Wanna make it better, better so bad
But save your resolutions for your never New Year
There is only one solution I can see here

Love, you’re all I ever could need
Only one good thing worth trying to be

And it’s love, love, love, love
I do it for love, love, love, love

Oh, only gonna get, get what you give away
So give love, love
Only gonna get, get what you give away, love
