Positive Thinking Sees the Invisible, Feels the Intangible, and Can Achieve the Impossible

…Why not think about times to come,
And not about the things that you’ve done,
If your life was bad to you,
Just think what tomorrow will do.

Don’t stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here,
It’ll be, better than before,
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone…

A Second Chance Doesn’t Mean Anything if You Learned Nothing from the First

…And as I float along this ocean
I can feel you like a notion that won’t seem to let me go

Cause when I look to the sky something tells me you’re here with me
And you make everything alright
And when I feel like I’m lost something tells me you’re here with me
And I can always find my way when you are here…

…And when I feel like there is no one that will ever know me
There you are to show me

Cause when I look to the sky something tells me you’re here with me
And you make everything alright
And when I feel like I’m lost something tells me you’re here with me
And I can always find my way when you are here.

I Wish I Could Show You … the Astonishing Light of Your Own Being

I have a good friend who has been going through a tough time lately. Besides being sick, she has been dealing with an overwhelming sense of the blahs. Having those blahs myself on occasion, I can empathize with how she feels. (*sends out huge hugs*) We all have our moments of being down, of feeling lost or alone, of thinking that there’s no hope. The thing to remember is that you aren’t the only person who feels that way.

Don’t Try to Sleep Through the End of the World

Don’t try to sleep through the end of the world
And bury me alive
‘Cause I won’t give up without a fight

If you love me let me go (x2)
‘Cause these words are knives and often leave scars
The fear of falling apart
And truth be told, I never was yours
The fear, the fear of falling apart

Butterflies and Hurricanes

 

Change everything you are
And everything you were
Your number has been called
Fights and battles have begun
Revenge will surely come
Your hard times are ahead

Best,
You’ve got to be the best
You’ve got to change the world
And use this chance to be heard
Your time is now

They Tell Me Love is Just a Dream Away

 “And sleep, that sometime shuts up sorrow’s eye, Steal me awhile from mine own company.”

― William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream

For the majority of this past week or so, I have had a friend of mine that I’ve known since I was 14 years old at my home for a visit. Brian and I met our freshman year of high school in English class and got paired together for a project on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. We bonded over our mutual hatred for required reading and loathing of our teacher – and we’ve been friends ever since. Sometimes months will go by between visits but every time we get a chance to spend some time together it’s like we’ve never been apart. Tomorrow evening he leaves to go back out on the road for work and I probably will not see him until the holidays, when our families will once again drive us crazy and we will attempt to keep each other sane. 🙂
