My Life In Song

I think it’s time I do this again.  It’s my life in song.  The nature of a good song is that at any given time someone can completely relate to it and say “wow, it’s almost like that song was written for me!”  There are so many songs that I can relate to in some way or another, but at any given time, certain ones tend to stick out even more.  So, here is my life at this moment in five songs….

It’s that time of year again.  The Holidays are piling on, everyone is working overtime, I’m fairly certain that almost all of my friends can relate to this song right now.  Hey, we can sleep when we’re dead, right!

I’m fairly certain I used this one in my last post like this.  Probably because it seriously fits me.  Only my nails ARE painted black.  And I only want to ride the mechanical bull:)  Take notes boys…

I’ve tried a lot of things in my life, some I’m better at than others, but mostly I have fairly useless talents.  Although I would like to thank everyone who has given me the chance lately to prove that I am actually intelligent and useful.  But I do love the nightlife.  And my Bud Light.  (Although Guinness would be even better- but I don’t expect to find Guinness in a country song- until I write one 😉 )

This one is because I pretty much want to live in the music video.  Also, no matter what, I want to dance.

This one is classic words of wisdom from a wise man- and also kinda the story of my life.  So here’s to hoping one day I can trust…

In any case, I hope you liked your musical break for the day.  I intend to do this every once in a while.  For my [revious post like this, see… Life is Like A Country Song!

Wisdom From the Back of a Tea Box

While I was waiting for the water to boil for my tea, I took the time to read the back of the box and found some really good advice there.  So I thought I’d share with y’all.

 

First, “Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.” ~Mark Twain

 

Ways to Add Joy to Your Daily Life:

1. Pay as much attention to the things that are working positively in your life as you do to those that are giving you trouble.

2. Rake a big pile of leaves every fall and jump in it with someone you love.

3.  Memorize your favorite love poem.

4. Learn three knock-knock jokes so you will always be ready to entertain children.

5. Don’t let weeds grow around your dreams.

6. Remember that everyone you meet is afraid of something, loves something, and has lost something.

7. Regardless of the situation, react with class.

8. Let some things remain mysterious.

 

I thought these were some really good, really simple ways to be happy no matter what life throws at you.  Now who wants to jump in some leaves with me?!? 🙂

Life is All About Building Relationships

If you had to pick one thing to do for the rest of your life, what would it be?

For me, it would depend.  If I had to pick something completely independent of everyone and everything else, I would pick dancing.  If that were one of Dante’s rings of Hell, I would want to be stuck dancing for all of eternity.

But if I had to pick something else, something with maybe more parts to it, I would pick theme park adventures with my wonderful family and friends.  There are numerous theme parks to explore, and lots of people to explore them with.  And I do not know anyone that can not have at east a little fun in a theme park – there’s something for everyone!  If someone would pay me to go to theme parks all the time, I’d do it in a heart beat.  And I don’t even ride roller coasters!!!!

But at the end of the day, they say it’s not what you do that defines you, but your relationships that define you.  I like to think I have a lot of good friends.  They’re like my extended family (which is already quite big simply due to my DNA!) And there is never a shortage of things to do with them.   Honestly, even the most mundane things like grocery shopping or washing the car are way better when you do them with your friends!  I love my friends.  Van Wilder said it best, “Life is about building relationships.”
