When my mind wanders, this is where it goes. I offer no solutions. I ask questions and hypothesize. Welcome to my world

#RIPWhitney. But hott damn! I had to wipe away a tear or two after listening to this cover of her song ‘How Will I Know’. (Which was one of my fave’s of hers btw).

Stop it #SamSmith. At a freaking radio station?? Nah, Ima need you to stop with these out of control performances that I gotta post on my blog and make people think I’m weird.

But then again, this is music in its purest form, so I will never apologize for sharing.

'This love is strong, why do I feel weak?'

I was initially sooo opposed to this ‘Remix’. Then I listened to it and realized its still my fave song. A$AP Rocky just talks on it a bit…Hahaha! I’m kidding. He totally raps…twice…I think. Whatevs. I like the guy but c’mon! Who dareth remix a Sam Smith song?? Anyway, long story short…just another version I discovered that I listened to at least 7 times this evening.

And BTW thoughts on the official video are welcome…I personally know for a fact she’s not taking him back at the end. Probably just going to poison him or something. If you have no idea what I’m talking about then youtube is your friend :)

God bless Sam Smith and the woman who made him. #ThatIsAll

"I’m Not The Only One"

Turning the Tide →

zenmister:

"It is easy to go with the flow when everything is going your way. When nothing seems to be going your way, going with the flow will take your even further from where want to be. In that situation, you can either swim against the current, or turn the tide.  To turn the tides of your perception, be patient with yourself. Tides turn on their own time, in harmony with the Earth. If the tide is going the wrong way, you don’t swim against it, you swim to the shore, or rest on an island where you are safe…."

"I’m in the war of my life, at the door of my life
Out of time and there’s nowhere to run

I’ve got a hammer and a heart of glass
I gotta know right now which walls to smash
I got a pocket, got no pills
If fear hasn’t killed me yet, then nothing will

All the suffering and all the pain
Never left a name…”

A friend of mine asked me to look this song up yesterday. It’s from John Mayer’s 2009 album ‘Battle Studies’.

What would we ever do without music to help fight our emotional battles? Don’t answer that. That’s a world I would not like to live in.

"Most of the shadows of this life are caused by us standing in our own sunshine"

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

#AskMeAnything.

Why I think relationships are like public transportation. Hahaha. No really. (In response to LexLuther87).

Lex asked: Why do you have such a poor opinion of relationships?

Short answer: I believe you cannot force love, or ‘grow to love’ someone.

Thanks for the question Lex!

Faith is in the Waiting →

rainbowtwo:

'I know that sometimes things are so bad that no matter what practices we do or what medications we take, we can't seem to generate even that small amount of faith we need for inspiration to keep going. Then, if we can stand inside our pain awhile and wait, over time we may come to also see it as a way into the deepest parts of ourselves and then back out into the world, a vehicle for new insight into who we are and how much we need to care for ourselves and one another. If there is nothing we can do right now but wait, then, as T.S. Eliot wrote, “the faith is in the waiting.” If we can but wait, we may yet emerge from despair with the same understanding that Zen master Suzuki Roshi expressed: “Sometimes to be alive is enough.”'

- Sharon Salzberg, Faith.

"A feeling that greater possessions, no matter of what kind they may be, will of themselves bring contentment or happiness, is a misunderstanding. No person, place, or thing can give you happiness. They may give you cause for happiness and a feeling of contentment, but they Joy of Living comes from within."

-Genevieve Behrend

I often make terrible, costly decisions mostly when my insomnia has led me to Google inconsequential facts for hours. But I must say, following Lena Dunham on Instagram and Tumblr last night are probably the greatest things I’ve done all year. I’m borderline obsessed with this woman. (Minus the borderline).  Basically I thank God for her presence in Hollywood and feel that since our worldviews collide so intensely, I must meet her. In this world or the next.
