Random Jottings ~ Never

never give up on life

~

it’s worth waiting for

~

some say that life’s a bitch

until they marry a bastard

~

never give up on what you want

because giving up means he wins

~

It’s very nice to go travelling

because you get to be a long way away from your spouse

~

for some people being alone is safe

~

alcohol does not cure all ills

but it helps a lot

Not Being a Better Man

just one little drink won’t hurt

Songs on Saturday ~ Soak Up The Sun

it’s the English summer, and we have sun

There aren’t many English bands who have ever had songs about sunshine ~ plenty about fog, rain, winter and misery.  Ergo I had to look to some music from the USA to find a decent song about the sun.  I like this from Sheryl Crow.

Today I will be enjoying a little of our very own pale English sunshine.

Who needs sunscreen here?

Don’t get burned.

Can’t Stop This Thing We Started

true love stories never have unhappy endings

I’ve been alone in lockdown for 478 days ~ long enough for me to think very carefully about relationships, friendships, and true love.  This Bryan Adams song is for someone who is more than just a very good friend.  I know that she is going to stick around, and that our story will never have an unhappy ending.

All she has to do is ask me, and I’ll tell her that I love her.

We have known each other for quite a while now.

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Danger Zone

I feel the need… the need for speed

Following my post Blinding Lights earlier today, I thought that we would all like to see this classic Kenny Loggins track from the movie Top Gun.

Well, it makes me smile, and smiles are in short supply right now.

this was the big stick

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Blinding Lights

my ego was writing checks my body couldn’t cash

This track and video from ‘The Weekend’ turned up utterly at random after I’d cleaned all the cookies and browsing history from my computer.  You know what?  I like it a lot, especially the girls’ vintage-looking white shoes.  Very Top Gun.

And perhaps the aircraft are Hellcats ~ let me know if I’m wrong.

BTW, in my current weakened state I didn’t manage much of a dance routine.

c’mon….. it’s still July

and you guys aren’t in lockdown

Healing Myself

love yourself enough to set boundaries

drinking, smoking, and not exercising will kill you

Most of us have our fare share of problems, and some of us have long-term health issues that we struggle with on a daily basis.  Some call this having a dis-ease, meaning that we are not at rest, constantly worrying and fretting, in physical, mental, and / or spiritual pain.  Addiction, anxiety and depression, personality disorders, and in my case a touch of OCD, means that we are seldom at ease.

Whatever your problem is, whatever your health issues are, no matter what your ambitions, goals, dreams and desires are, I firmly believe there is a lot we can do to help ourselves, to heal ourselves from what plagues us, to make ourselves a better life.

For me, that means first of all knowing myself, admitting to myself just who and what I am, and accepting that I have some physical, mental, and spiritual health issues.  For example; I’m over my ideal weight, I’m no where near as fit as I’d like to be, and I suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorders.

Some would go to doctors, and take medication, or seek therapy and counselling, or just ignore the whole health thing altogether.

However, I am self-motivated to heal myself and make a better life for myself and those I care for.  I have a good daily routine, even if I don’t always stick to it.  I keep myself and the garret clean, tidy, and smart.  Getting enough rest and sleep is important, as is getting enough fresh air and exercise.  I eat pretty well and healthily, and I don’t binge eat or eat late at night.  Watching TV is not a big thing for me, instead I read and listen to music.  The key is not getting side-tracked, staying focused, and not getting discouraged when things aren’t perfect.  Most importantly for me ~ not drinking.

Some say that we need to live with a healthy mind in a healthy body.  And that having a positive outlook goes a long way.  All I know is that physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness.

torment is not a happy state

it will kill you

I am the lucky one

real love means doing whatever it takes

no more grey skies now

~

never felt a love like this

just that first tender kiss

was all that it took

for me to give everything

to make her mine

for all of time

do whatever it takes

to chase the grey skies away

Signs that He’s a Jerk

there are lots of weirdos and jerks out there
that doesn’t mean you have to date one

he’s a politician

~

he’s married with kids

and often sees other women

~

he talks about himself too much

~

he constantly talks over you in public

~

he makes no effort to look good for you

~

he’d rather watch porn than be with you

~

he expects you to pay your half of the check

~

he’s flaky, ghosts you, vanishes with no explanation

won’t let you call him at home

~

he’s a manipulator, steals from you, lies to you, is often angry

makes you feel like you’re walking on eggshells

he drinks a lot

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Slave to Love

love does not dominate; it cultivates

Forget Travolta in Saturday Night Fever, back in the day Bryan Ferry was the epitome of cool.  I like this song and I think this video is damn cool too.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
