“I will not hide my face. I will not fall from grace. I’ll walk into the fire…” -In This Moment
I swear I can speak through lyrics and music heals almost everything. Music speaks in every language, no matter who is singing and where they are, but the beat and the voice speak to people in so many ways. That is why in every blog post, I start with a quote or a song lyric that speaks to me at the moment. Does that make sense?
I have been working hard on my self-esteem and believing in myself. I think chronic pain is affecting my sleep and thoughts so it is a constant struggle but knowing that I am enough is never an easy task. Everyone has insecurities and I am tired of letting them take over who I am. I used to hide…not so much anymore. Change is never easy, but I think I’ve got this. Check my pic on the site!
If no one has told you today…you are awesome, beautiful, and never settle for less. You deserve the best life has to offer if you work for it!
This week has been pretty bland. The rain makes me wanna just curl up and watch movies or write. Unfortunately, sleep is not a thing still, so I put my energy into school work and getting through this shitty class. 6 weeks left! Soon the weekends will be filled up. With the holiday season here already, my weekends are filling up between shopping, family parties, and xmas, of course. Family drama on its way. Gotta love it.
I am glad people are starting to read and comment more. It still seems weird that anyone wants to see what I have to say, but I guess it adds a new aspect of who I am to people who listen to my shows. So comment away and have fun (I am looking at you, Eric!)!
“I’m still Jenny from the block…” -J-lo
Popcorn Worthy: I was enthralled with Brad Pitt in the movie The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. What a great movie! I still think Casey Affleck looks weird and shady so his role as Ford was well done.
I also watched the movie Alpha Dog again….not sure why but it’s a guilty pleasure!
Not a movie but……I am hooked on the TV show This Is Us! I binged until I caught up and I admit, I cried quite a few times. Mandy Moore is so underrated!
Press Play: Check out the music from a band called September Sky. I am really liking them a lot!
My new theme song is In This Moment – The Fighter. Powerful lyrics.
John Lennon – Imagine is also in my playlist right now. The US needs some healing and this song eases my mind.
Weekly WTF: Is it really that hard to put the toilet paper on the holder and not just leave it on the side of the sink?! AND put it on the right way! The TP goes OVER…not under!
Kitchen Kauldron: Turkey day is coming so here is a leftover idea for ya. Use pizza dough (make it, buy it…whatever) and once rolled out brush it with olive oil, some garlic, and Italian seasoning. Spread the turkey over it, add chunks of the leftover stuffing, your choice of cheese (I prefer mozzarella or ricotta), then drizzle with the leftover gravy. You can also add whatever you want but it is amazing!
HELP US!: Your support means a lot and a HUGE shout out goes to Loppy for being awesome. I know I said it on Twitter but he gets extra hugs in June for being so awesome. You can help us too! Just click here: I wanna be awesome
