As Long as We Got Each Other Lyrics by Steve Dorff and John Bettis

Show me that smile again. (Show me that smile)
Don’t waste another minute on your cryin’.
We’re nowhere near the end (nowhere near)
The best is ready to begin.

As long as we got each other
We got the world spinnin right in our hands.
Baby, rain or shine, all the time
We got each other, sharin’ the laughter and love.

We’re Not Gonna Take It Lyrics/Twisted Sister

Oh We’re Not Gonna Take It
no, We Ain’t Gonna Take It
oh We’re Not Gonna Take It Anymore

we’ve Got The Right To Choose And
there Ain’t No Way We’ll Lose It
this Is Our Life, This Is Our Song
we’ll Fight The Powers That Be Just
don’t Pick Our Destiny ’cause
you Don’t Know Us, You Don’t Belong

oh We’re Not Gonna Take It
no, We Ain’t Gonna Take It
oh We’re Not Gonna Take It Anymore

oh You’re So Condescending
your Gall Is Never Ending
we Don’t Want Nothin’, Not A Thing From You
your Life Is Trite And Jaded
boring And Confiscated
if That’s Your Best, Your Best Won’t Do

oh…………………
oh…………………
we’re Right/yeah
we’re Free/yeah
we’ll Fight/yeah
you’ll See/yeah

Hi friends! Shame on me. I’m late with my challenge, so I’m giving two days worth. But, here it goes😊.

Where Everybody Knows Your Name Lyrics by Gary Portnoy and Judy Hart Angelo

Making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got.
Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.

Wouldn’t you like to get away?

Sometimes you want to go

Where everybody knows your name,
and they’re always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see,
our troubles are all the same
You wanna be where everybody knows
Your name.

CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG 

“Our House”

I’ll light the fire, you place the flowers in the vase that you bought today.
Staring at the fire for hours and hours while I listen to you
Play your love songs all night long for me, only for me.Come to me now and rest your head for just five minutes, everything is good.
Such a cozy room,
The windows are illuminated by the evening sunshine through them,
Fiery gems for you, only for you.Our house is a very, very, very fine house with two cats in the yard,
Life used to be so hard,
Now everything is easy ’cause of you and our—

La, la, la

If we’re heart to heart

And we can build this dream together
Standing strong forever
Nothing’s gonna stop us now

And if this world runs out of lovers
We’ll still have each other
Nothing’s gonna stop us
Nothing’s gonna stop us

How To PursueYour Life’s Purpose

Hi friends! I wanted to talk about living your life’s purpose. If you are stuck doing things in your life that you’re not happy with, you’ll naturally be miserable. Your life should fit together like a perfect puzzle. If you try to fit pieces of yourself into areas that don’t belong, you will have constant struggle. I believe we all come to this earth with specific tasks we are supposed to complete and gifts and talents to share. Have you ever thought about death and then said to yourself that you can’t die yet; You still have so much more you need/ want to do? It’s like subconsciously we know God assigned us things to do and we won’t be at rest until it’s complete. I’ve noticed some people that are like 90 and up that seem to be more content with dying. They don’t seem to be so anxious about their life’s purpose like us younger people do. They seem to just want to retire, relax, and live out their last days in peace. It’s like they know a lot has been accomplished already. So now you’re probably asking yourself what is your life’s purpose.

questions-1922476_640

This is quite easy to answer. What is your favorite hobby? If you only had one day left on earth to enjoy any hobby of your choice, what would it be? Is there a hobby you love so much that you would do it without pay? Art, golf, singing, writing, basketball, gaming, reading? The list can go on and on! We often overlook our life purpose because we let our desire for financial stability to take front seat. When we are growing up, we are often given a list of jobs to choose from based on income potential. Like doctor, lawyer, athlete, banker and etc.

african-2027619_640

And when we don’t personally feel fulfilled after picking out one of those preselected jobs, we feel confused because our life’s purpose is to get a job/ career that makes a lot of money right?

e-learning-1367416_640

Or, perhaps you didn’t have the time or resources to get a high paying job, so now you’re stuck working at McDonald’s asking yourself how did you get stuck there! How? Because you were so stuck in survival mode, you didn’t think much about what you really wanted to do. Because hey, we have bills to pay, who has the time to make money off a hobby, right? Well….. Actually yes, you’re right. Some hobbies don’t make as much as others. But, if you are strategic, you can have your dream job.

Say for example you work at McDonald’s, and after work you love to make dolls.

babies-869264_640

You have a whole collection of dolls you have made in your spare time. It’s just your hobby so you’ve never considered making money off of it; despite the fact you are quite talented at it. And if I suggested you make money off of it, you would laugh it off and say that you couldn’t possibly sell enough dolls to cover your bills. It’s better left off as a hobby. Well, yes that’s true for now. Just picking up and leaving your day job to sell dolls would definitely be a bad idea. Because you’re right, it won’t cover your bills. But….that doesn’t mean that it won’t cover your bills eventually. Our problem is that it’s hard to picture ourselves not getting instant gratification and income. It’s hard to picture ourselves giving out free time or charging little as an amateur. But, like with anything else in life, things take time. Overnight success is very rare. The best thing to do would be to sell your dolls to neighbors, rent a booth over the weekend, or sell it on ebay while working at McDonald’s. Yes, sells might be slow at first, but over time, sells will eventually increase more and more. When you use your God given talent, God provides opportunities in due time. But, you have to be willing to take the first steps. You have to be willing to make sacrifices here and there. You have to believe God will properly reimburse your work eventually. You have to give some to get some. Perhaps you will have to sell your dolls below market value at first just to wet consumers appetite and get your name around. Eventually God will provide you with the income you deserve and then some if you’re patient. And this same logic/ strategy goes for any other hobby. Persistence, faith, patience, sacrifice!

Don’t let your Dream job be an
Abstract thought, make it reality!

WILL TOMORROW EVER COME

Very inspirational testimony and story!

The Writers Desk

I lay in the hospital bed at Columbia Presbyterian in New York. It is ten thirty pm., and the nurses continue to give me enemas to clean out my colon. I can barely walk at this point and tell the nurse this is the last one. I feel like my legs won’t last another trip to the bathroom. The enemas stop and I am left with my thoughts about tomorrow morning. Will it be the last morning for me, will I never see my children again or my family for that matter. I left instructions with my husband and my sisters, they were trying to encourage me but with tears in their eyes. My children were four, nine and eleven. They needed me. I was only thirty nine and Cancer was my enemy. I prayed again that night to my God, please let me make it through this nightmare and…

Forgive yourself already!

Hi friends! I hope you have been trying to put those bags down already. But, I know that’s it’s easier said than done. Believe me I know. Getting your life back on track is a journey. A beautiful journey! So I want to help you kick those bags to the curve!

foot-1744044_640

Let’s start out with forgiveness. That’s a word that was a huge pill for me to swallow. I couldn’t forgive myself, or others. And believe it or not, God made our natural nature to be loving and content; that’s why when we hold a grudge against ourselves or other’s, it’s a painful burden on our spirit. It makes us feel guilt for feeling the emotion of  unforgiveness, but yet we feel so justified for having it. If someone hurt you, you have every right to feel dissapointed and angry. The problem is that we carry that emotion of that time with us forever! Or, you may have done something you feel guilty about; and It’s alright to feel guilt at that moment of time because that is our concious ( a natural instinct) that tells us that we are doing wrong and we need to correct our actions. But guilt wasn’t ment to be carried with you throughout life. That’s why I’m sorry and forgiveness was created! Now, let’s do an exercise. I want you to Ruminate on this.

Picture a tunnel.

tunnel-1963456_640

There is this bright light that shine so bright that it hurts your eyes. As you shield your eyes you hear this soft loving voice say come. The closer you walk, the more you feel this intense radiation of love. So much so, that you start to smile despite feeling afraid of not knowing whose there. When you make it out the tunnel, picture yourself in a place of beauty and comfort.

sunrise-1886619_640

This place could be out in the country, beach, mountains, open field, or even a loved ones house. As you arrive into the environment, you feel overtaken by love. You feel this feeling of joy rush over you! You know, the kind of joy you would feel if you won the lottery!😆 Then this soft loving voice from your creator/ whoever you believe is your higher power say,  welcome back home. I’ve been watching you in your life. As you’ve grown, learned, and explored, you have been really hard on yourself. I know you have at times felt alone, but I was there right with you all along. When I sent you into the world, you knew nothing. You were just a clean sheet of paper to be written on.

birth-466140_640

And so many people have left a mark on your life. Your parents, family, friends, and strangers. Marks that you didn’t write down on yourself. And in response to those marks that people have left, you did and said things that you regret, resent, and punish yourself for. But I didn’t send you out into the world a  clean slate to persecute you; I gave you freewill to live, learn, make choices, and make mistakes. Mistakes to help you grow, learn from, and become the man or woman you aspire to be. You’re a product of all those who left a mark on your life. But it doesn’t define who you are as my child/ human being.Some good and some bad marks have been left on your mind and heart. But don’t blame yourself for anything. You’re merely a student in this life. I view you as an innocent child that is learning. If you don’t like the choices you made for that day, I blessed you with another day to start over and make another choice. I wanted you to experiment with choices until you found the desired one. Did you know I wasn’t mad at you when you felt you made the wrong choices; despite you being mad at yourself. Did you know I was cheering you on, viewing you like a baby learning to walk through life?

child-345523_640

Everytime you fell/ made “bad choices”, I put out my hand to pick you up and said let’s try again. Let’s keep going! And I asked you what did you learn from that choice. You’re my child and I love you. I don’t punish you for your “mistakes” so neither should you. Now say it with me. It’s not my fault, it’s not my fault, it never will be my fault. I’m only a student of life. I will no longer be hard on myself or others when mistakes are made. I will only soak in God’s love, forgiveness, and compassion. I will also share this same love, forgiveness, and compassion to myself and others. Feel loving arms being wrapped around you. Now before you leave, put the bags down and hand them over to me.

bag-1431449_640

All of your mistakes are in this bag.  I’m going to burn them and they will no longer exist!

fire-3314_640

These mistakes/ “sins” are gone! Now open your eyes and treat today like the glorious day it is! You have more exploring and choices to make!

Stop traveling through time! Live in the present.

Hi friends! Let me say this first. For those of you who read the story of kitten, I’m going to continue on with the story. Really I am😆! Honest! It’s just that these articles are laying heavy on my chest, and I want to release them. I want to talk about those of us who are constantly traveling in our own little time machines. Everyone thinks that time machines aren’t real. But did you know that you have been using one for years!? The time machine is inside your head. You have been using it for years to relive moments in your life and live out moments that haven’t happened yet. Time machines can be fun if used in the right way. If you allow the positive thoughts to dominate, it’s a wonderful tool to travel back to great memories and to see the future manifestations for your life. But, the problem is that we are using this great God given tool to torment ourselves. Everyday we live in the past or fear our imagined future. We are amongst our friends and loved ones in this present moment in the physical, but living in the past or future mentally. Literally! For example, I’ll give you an example of living in the past. Perhaps you experienced being cheated on by your ex-husband. And not only that, he also physically abused you. That was five years ago. The sadness and pain you felt as a result of those happenings gave you anxiety and depression. The emotional anguish was absolutely justifiable five years ago, but not so much now. You tell yourself that you have moved on and you have forgiven him, yet to this day, you still suffer anxiety and depression. Now because of that, you haven’t been able to enjoy present relationships. Every time you meet someone new, you don’t see this👇

passion-1690965_640

You see this!👇

graphics-946270_640

This new man who wants to say Hi is warmly embracing you with a smile. He thinks you are the most beautiful woman in the world, but he has no idea that you’re viewing him as a monster. Perhaps you do decide to give him a chance, you won’t even allow him or yourself to fully love because you’re stuck living in the past. It’s okay to remember that time in your life because it’s a good lesson learned. You experienced how you shouldn’t be treated, so you can now choose those who are NOT that way. Why are you carrying emotions from 5 years ago!? Let those negative emotions go! Depression and anxiety serve no purpose today! Allow him to do this👇

marriage-1880256_640

Allow yourself the pleasure of love. Use that distant memory of abuse to keep those who aren’t worthy of you away and those who are close by. REMEMBER, BAD THINGS HAPPEN SOMETIME TO TEACH US A USEFUL LESSON, NOT TO KEEP US LIVING IN THE PAST!

Also, I will give you an example of living in the future. Cancer, sickness, and death surround us on television news everyday. Now, we have stepped inside the mental time machine of seeing ourselves sick or sick again. Now we are feeling depressed and anxious. But wait! Hold on! That hasen’t even happen. Why are you feeling emotions from something that hasn’t even happen!?  Are you a fortune teller!?

psychics-1026092_640
Well, are you?! And if so, quit your day job to tell the rest of us our future! 😆

If the answer is no, then stop feeling anxious about something you made up! You’re only hunting and tormenting yourself.

eery-1648250_640
This is you chasing, tormenting, and scaring yourself in your head! Stop it! Did you quit your day job to be your own boogeyman?! Booo!!!!😱😂

Step out of your self-made future! My point is, get out the past and future. Live in the present. Don’t tell me what happen five years ago that got you upset still. HOW DO YOU FEEL TODAY?!

summer-1572369_640
Stop and smell the flowers!
father-1633655_640
Enjoy your family.

See, did you look around you? That day is gone. Step into today. I bet TODAY, your day isn’t so bad! 😆
