That’s the sound of love

Standard
That’s the sound of love

Methodical notes. In the key of E. Emphasis on the piano and a high pitched sound of a violin.

  
 

Music.

The sound or better yet sounds that I am grateful for plays out in my life as music.  

 

From gamma frequencies to delta beats of rhythm and blues. Punk rock when I’m a wild child and on the tips of my toes in a classical ballet. To the heels of my feet when a hip hop song plays. 

Taking me to church on a regular day. 

Music makes me grateful for these two ears. It drowns out my tears and lifts my spirits. It tells me a story and I can tell mine with it. Melody is heaven sent and I’m blessed beyond words with the gift of it. 

The music has lead me to far away places and opened closed doors. 

  
Day 10 of grateful January and the question is. What sound are you grateful for?

I’m thankful for another day to play music.

Pleasantly peaceful 

Standard

This Christmas playing lighting in the background as I lay and write by the dim light of this IPad.

Poetic poetry and honest dialogue about truthful information.

The world isn’t always what it seems. Jumped into parallels between love and light. Found hidden behind judgments put together by faith. 

It is what it is has been my motto for most of my days on this here earth.

December 23rd.  I woke up….thank goodness. Today wasn’t promised. Good thing I didn’t leave the 22nd on a bad note.🎵

  
The need to be present is important. Stay too close to the past and continue past mistakes. Stay too far in the future and miss today’s miracles altogether. 

The day is young as it’s just begun. I’m pleasantly peaceful. Sending positive thoughts your way. 

Enjoy this day enjoy the notion that it will be whatever you make it. 

  
I’m making mine marvelous. 

The weather is cold and maybe not enough snow for me on the ground but I’m still thankful for any hints of winter. 

Have a happy Saturday and hopefully a good Dec 23rd.

Misconceptions of misconduct 

Standard

Stomp of my foot and the wrath of my words are meant to break down barriers as fear builds up walls.

I am no different than the average. I want my dreams to be real. Have no inhibitions to say what I feel on a daily basis. 

I’ll find peace in solitude and hope in love and my future in your eyes. I’ll push and I’ll pull. I’m good at playing the fool as long as it’s a fool for you. 

  
I’ll right my wrongs.

 Try again and again just to get next to you. 

Yes,I shut down when I think your playing around instead speaking from a place that we both know to be true. 

Play music at midnight listening to all the songs about Mr. Do Right with only a image of you etched on my brain. 

I’m soft to the touch and hard to miss,but I’m honest as sh*t whenever I say that I love you. 

Your the apple of my eye and the reason why I keep sending virtual vibes via social media. 

I’m yours forever and always.

 I’m ready for whatever as long as we end up together in this crazy thing we call life.

Y’all help me serenade this man….💋

A little jig for today 

Standard
A little jig for today 

Christmas music to wake up my restless soul.

  
Heyyyy. I’m doing a little a jig in my seat. Simplicity is beautiful. Happy Tuesday morning. I swear my mind is elsewhere today. But I’m up and motivated sending you all smiles and music. 

  
What a time to be alive. Right. Who’s with me? 

2017 is finally leaving y’all. Hell yeah. I’m not going to miss it. I’m so grateful that I made it through. I can tell when life is ready for me to evolve because my physical and mental time clocks become distorted. 

Talking clocks that remind me of what time it is. 

I guess it’s time to wake up 😉. 

Hopefully everyone is feeling fine this morning. Ya spirits are hopefully filled with joy. I’m sending positive vibes your way. Partly because I need some too. A boost of energy and a sprinkle of happiness to life’s greatest moments. 

Let’s let go of anything other than peaceful things. 

Smile from the tips of our toes and let it resonate out of our auras like a spiritual rainbow. 

  
Take some time to zen out reach out and love today. 

I’m sending peace and blessings to the earth today and hopefully everyone catches the vibes.

Dancing with the sun

Standard

  
Some things are embedded into your soul. Ignites your spirit and fills up your empty spaces. Dance does this for me. 

I will always dance. 

As I work on my feet and prepare them for pointe shoes I remember exactly how hard it was to be focused on what I love.

First of all it’s painful. I screamed repeatedly the first day back on my toes. You would have thought that someone had taken a hammer to my toes. Literally. 

Oh don’t forget the foot cramps. I get a cramp thinking about the cramps.

  
I’m more focused when I know the end result will be something that makes me smile everyday. Dance makes me smile from the inside out. Yoga brings me peace and dance gives me light at the end of the tunnel. 

I’m thankful that I was made with the spirit to endure whatever the universe throws at me. As long as the melody sends me fluttering across the sky I’ll be just fine. 

Pick a hobby, listening to a song, play a video game. Just take time to do something you enjoy. Have the best life of your life. This way when you realize there’s no more pain you know you have arrived.

Happy Monday ✨

Thursday my Thursday 

Standard
Thursday my Thursday 

Found myself up early getting my morning cup of zen. Headphones on enjoying meditation music and sending my son off to school with positive vibes.  

 
Took a mini nap and awoke to the sound of the phone. On the other end was someone that I used to know. 

Unfortunately I can’t relate to them anymore. It pains me when life turns friendships into nothing. I constantly pray for that someone. I hope his life turns out amazing even though I won’t be in it. 

Maybe life will surprise me. 

  
I tend to be alone in my own space contemplating life. Analyzing my mistakes and my triumphs. Of course like anyone else I would like to see everything go right. 

I would like to see everyone be happy. I’d like to make the whole world dance but not everyone is in the mood for music. So be it. Guess I’ll make a cup of coco and put some marshmalleys in it to make me smile. 

Wishing you and yours a happy Thursday ✨

Peaceful journeys and pandora’s box

Standard
Peaceful journeys and pandora’s box

Bright and sunny morning outside. The wind smells fresh and cool enough to bring tears from the chill. I’m being thankful. 

Monday sweet Monday oh how I adore you. 

Listening to Christmas music and playing a couple of hands of digital spades I refresh my spirit. Off tune and lip singing I groove to the beat.

  
Checking out my social media and trying to be helpful to my fellow writers I embrace the day. Uplifting is a soul filled with kindness. I’m not always the kindest of the kind. (I think I made that word up lol 😂) (nevermind google searched it and it’s a word double 😂 😂)

  
I stroll and enjoy the thoughts of others. Shake off any negativity and keep it pushing. There’s more important things to think about. I pray quietly for myself and others turn my thoughts to a positive radio station so I can focus on the beauty of this day. 

Yes my mind tends to remember the past like any other human my memories can grab a hold of my heart and twist it tight if I allow it to. The trick is to kick those thoughts ass before they can have a pity party. There’s nothing wrong with wanting more for myself than sadness. It’s time to live. Not that the love has faded or that the pain is gone. Those things remain. The only thing that changed is the want to receive the awesomeness that I am being given everyday. It’s available if I want it. 

I have to grab hold of smiles and laughter. I have to reach out and say good morning to a stranger. I have to be willing to send peace and blessings out to the universe to receive it back so that’s what I do. 

Hello universe I love you! 

I know that you love me back 😉 

  
Today I’ll let bygones be bygones and reach outside of my Pandora’s box grab hold of my sanity and unlock the mindset that keeps me captivated by the unnecessary. Dance in the rain of the storm kick off my shoes and open my soul up to gratitude because I made it through another day. Awoke today to happiness and the calmness of life.

Have a happy Monday y’all we earned it! 💋🌺
