Don’t Worry

“Let advance worrying become advance thinking and planning.” ~Winston Churchill

Do you find yourself beginning your thoughts with ‘what if?’ What if the store is out of my favorite brand of wine? What if I don’t get that job? What if rains tomorrow? Worrying about things that haven’t’ even happened puts you in a state of stress, where you waste so much energy worrying about things you have no control over.  Well, here’s a suggestion. Rather than focusing on all those ‘what ifs,’ that are on your mind, create a solutions list. If the store is out of your favorite wine, think about an adequate substitute. Afterall, that’s not the end of the world. Keep sending out your resume and take those interview appointments. What else are you going to do if you don’t get THAT job, right? Pick an outfit that won’t be destroyed by the rain, have an umbrella ready, and a hairstyle that won’t take on a mind of its own. Now if it rains, it doesn’t matter so much, because you are fully prepared and you’re going to look great!
By going from worrying to planning mode, you can have a variety of solutions on hand regardless of the outcome. Besides worrying doesn’t change anything, but planning sure can.

Heart Shaped Glasses

“Don’t break
Don’t break my heart
And I won’t break your heart-shaped glasses
Little girl, little girl
You should close your eyes
That blue is getting me high”
~ Marilyn Manson – Heart Shaped Glasses

Memories fade

“There’s only need
I love your need
So much I’m losing me
I cannot see the reason for the Pain
With hungry joy
I’ll be your toy
Just hoping you will play
Without the hope my body starts to fail
Memories fade but the scars still linger
Goodbye my friend
Will I ever love again
Memories fade but the scars still linger
I cannot grow
I cannot move
I cannot feel my age
The vice like grip of tension holds me fast
Engulfed by you
What can I do
When history’s my cage
Look forward to a future in the past
Memories fade but the scars still linger
Goodbye my friend
Will I ever love again
Memories fade but the scars still linger
Goodbye my friend
Will I ever love again
The more I talk
The more I say
The less you seem to hear
I’m speechless in a most peculiar way
Your mind is weak
Your need is great
And nothing is too dear
For you to use to take the pain away
Memories fade
No don’t pretend you can justify the end
Memories fade but the scars still linger”

Preacher man can’t save a soul like mine
Miracles are just too damn hard to find

Malibu

“We are just like the waves that flow back and forth
Sometimes I feel like I’m drowning and you’re there to save me
And I wanna thank you with all of my heart
It’s a brand new start
A dream come true
In Malibu”
~ Miley Cyrus – Malibu

Most of the time, I just post the lyrics and leave it at that. However, this time, I’m going to explain a little bit, because I think most people think of this song as a love song. It may have been written as one. I don’t know. What I do know, is that it isn’t a love song in the traditional sense, to me. For me, it is a song filled with metaphors and its from my heart to my friends in Second Life. My friends in this crazy virtual world have pulled me back from the edge so many times and ask nothing in return. I’m not going to break it down by stanza or line, but that’s the gist of where I’m coming from by posting this song.

Had Some Drinks

“I’ve been around, brought you down, it’s true
I had some drinks and said some things to you
If I said too much, I know you’re mine to lose
I had some drinks and said some things to you
I think too much, I’m outta touch, it’s true
Don’t give a fuck, yeah actually I do
If I said too much, I know you’re mine to lose
Don’t give a fuck, yeah actually I do”

Heart of Glass

“Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind
Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind
In between ‘what I find is pleasing’ and ‘I’m feeling fine’
Love is so confusing
There’s no peace of mind if I fear I’m losing you
It’s just no good, you teasing like you do”
~ Blondie – Heart of Glass

Keep your halo tight
One hand on the trigger, the other hand in mine
Because now, cupid carries a gun
Now, now, cupid, cupid carries a gun”

Music Speaks

I have a tendency to overthink things. If something is wrong with one of my friends and they don’t want to talk about it….or at least not with me or not right now? I will run the gambit with thoughts about what could be bothering them and whether or not I am to blame. I want to fix it. I want to make it better. As I’m sure some of my friends often want to do with me. Let someone sling mud about me or at me, that will be stuck in my head for ages. I will go back and forth questioning whether I deserved that or not. I’ll wonder if I should apologize or just wash my hands of the whole ordeal.
I started this blog almost three years ago. I started it strictly for the therapeutic value. I saw it working wonders in Kess’ life and I was going through one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to deal with. She knew it and despite the blog therapy, I’m still dealing with that same real life bullshit that got me started, but I’m a lot closer to the end of that and the beginning of a new chapter. So, my blog has been about me expressing myself through words and photos, but I find myself quoting songs or just listing the entire lyrics quite a bit. I struggle with doing that, because so often I do feel as though its a bit of a cop out. However, there are times that music is what inspired a photo or when a song expresses everything I’m feeling in a far better way than I could. I apologized for that several times last year, but I had readers that told me they understood it. I even had readers tell me that I introduced them to music they had never heard before. So, this year, I will make no apologies for how I express myself in MY blog. Oddly enough, there’s no song for this post….*laughs*…but there will surely be one in an upcoming blog, cuz I might have already gotten it ready. *winks*
