Thinking [sing-along] Thursday

I am working on me today…this week… this month… this year… this lifetime.  I’ve droned on and on about my poor self esteem here and now is the time to really get to work.  I can’t promise to never bring it up again, but for now, I’m done with it.

So, how about this instead:  I love music.  Not a day goes by that I don’t listen to music and sing right along with it…quite loudly.  Music makes me happy and never fails to make me feel better when my day is less than stellar.  I especially like music that makes me want to rally the troops and say “f#ck the haters!”, which is precisely the reason I’ll always be a punk rock girl at heart (as you see, though, my tastes are varied).

Join me in this sing-along and have a happy Thursday!

The song I currently sing in the shower:

One of my favorite songs EVER:

I feel this way in regard my daughters, now I am trying to feel this way about myself:

This one doesn’t have a video… but is absolutely worth listening to:

those little things do so much

Millencolin is one of my favorite bands (top 10)  and this song really resonates and gets stuck in my brain for days. You see, sometimes I feel like the smallest of things make or break me.  When those small things come around and trip me up, I become not just frustrated, but devastated. I know that sounds like a tad drama-queen-esque, but those feelings can be overwhelming.  Don’t fret!  The flipside of that, of course, is that the tiniest things lift me up and make me soar.  I can find joy in the most miniscule of things and that is truly a blessing. I will take the good with bad, the annihilation with exaltation… because the good always, always, ALWAYS outweighs the bad!  Have I mentioned that I’m a Gemini lately? – because that really explains a lot.  =)

This week is off to a great start!

Millencolin : Shut You Out

Even the smallest thing could be enough for you
Still it was too hard for me to give
Even the smallest thing could break your heart in two
No wonder why it’s hard for you to live

Just like I turn you down, I always shut you out
No matter who I blame you’re not around
I cannot turn back time, I cannot change a thing
No matter what they say, I shut you out

Even the smallest thing can make your day complete
I’ve never seen a bigger smile than yours
Even the smallest thing can wipe you off your feet
When no ones catching you, you hit the floor

Just like I turn you down, I always shut you out
No matter who I blame you’re not around
I cannot turn back time, I cannot change a thing
No matter what they say, I shut you out

Shut you out, shut you out Shut you out, shut you out

Just like I turn you down, I always shut you out
No matter who I blame you’re not around
I cannot turn back time, I cannot change a thing
No matter what they say, I shut you out

Just like I turn you down, I always shut you out
No matter who I blame you’re not around
I cannot turn back time, I cannot change a thing
No matter what they say, I shut you out
