Song of the Day – It’s A Good Life

I heard this song while I was getting ready for my day and after the past few days I needed that uplifting song. I had to take my boyfriend to the ER the other night (he is fine now!) but it has been a rough couple of days taking care of him, we are both ready for his pain to go away, and this song about freedom helps keep us focused on what we are fighting for. I’ll write about it later but, for now listen to this lovely song by the Kongos! I present to you “It’s a Good Life.”

Yeah we all have had those dreams
O-o-of the sun, and the sea and an island
Where you switch off
It’s a good life
It’s a good life
For me

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

O-o-of the sun, and the sea and an island

O-o-of the sun, and the sea and an island…..

Life is Like a Turtle

“Take a walk with a turtle. And behold the world in pause.” ~ Bruce Feiler

Some days, life seems to catch you off guard with how fast time flies. Other days you are just begging for it to hurry up and move on. I can’t believe that it’s already September. I barely feel like I had a summer! So much has happened in the world that I feel like my own life is at a stand still. I’m waiting for several things to come through or work themselves out, but I never seem to be “caught up” or just ready. I keep telling everyone this year is going to be a big year and I think so far it has been. I just hate being that idealist because no matter what, we never get as much done as we’d like to.

I don’t want life to hurry up at all, I’ve come to realize all those story books about time speeding up as you age, THEY ARE ALL TRUE. Life has flown by this year, at least on the Calender, while my day-to-day life at work has been increasingly dull I still try to make the most of every evening. Not as well as I should… I still get lost in video games and Bob’s Burgers or Southpark. BUT I do try.

I’m ready for another adventure and another trip far away. Distant mountains, rivers and oceans call to me! I can get as melodramatic about this as y’all want but I’ll hold myself back and exercise that famous self-control.

I just want life to stop with the turtlesque type deal. Lets get on to the travelesque type deal! I am a gemini after all. We thrive on adventure.

Also side note, we are thinking about getting a pet turtle!! They seem pretty chill and relatively easy to take care of, which is always a good thing in my book. Give me your vote on whether or not that sounds like a fantastic idea or a rather misguided ideal, if that makes sense.

Not my picture!
