laughter, happiness

things we show

when everything goes right

tears, sadness

things we hide

when everyone else thinks things are right

show me all

I want to know

when everything is wrong

when everything is right

why hide

when I am right here

give me your good

give me your bad

I can take it

I know what it is

Don’t feel lost

I’ll hold your hand

deep hollow warm

beating from the inside out

sounds flowing in my veins

rhythmic sounds

emanating from my soul

heart beats catching the rhythm

taking control

lost are the worries of the day

when I hear the beats of the world

Morning Exercise and a New Toy

So I’ll be honest I really did not want to exercise this morning but I made myself do it and now I feel amazing. I get all those endorphins going and I get that good energy flowing…can’t get too much better than that!! I just love working out before everyone gets up in the morning. I can just enjoy the quiet before the storm…lol!!  I created a playlist that gets me going every morning:

Applause – Lady Gaga

Can’t Stop the Feeling – Justin Timberlake

Moves like Jagger – Adam Levine w/Christina Aguilera

It’s My Life – Bon Jovi

Just Like Fire – Pink

Lose Yourself – Eminem

Poker Face – Lady Gaga

The Rubberband Man – The Spinners


My husband surprised me yesterday with a new toy… a Fitbit!! I was so tickled by it. I had no idea he was planning to get me one. He told me that I was working so hard to lose weight and improve myself I deserved a new toy to help me keep track of everything. What can I say, I’ve got an amazing hubby 😀


Road trip songs

I know school is about to begin for everyone but we are going to go on a short road trip this weekend. More of day trip but still a road trip. While I’m getting things ready for the weekend, I thought I’d get a CD ready. (yes a CD) Remember the mix tapes we all used to create for all sorts of occasions or our best friend, boyfriend, cousin etc…would create just because? I do!! So I decided to do that on CD. Yes I know almost everyone uses mp3s but it’s kind of fun just to create something to bring back memories 😀

On this CD I got some good road songs (they are old ones but still good ones):

1. On the Road Again – Willie Nelson

2. Life is a Highway – Tom Cochrane

3.  American Pie – Don McLean

4. Ventura Highway – America

5. Born to Run – Bruce Springsteen

6. Take it Easy – The Eagles

7. Free Fallin’ – Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

8. Running on Empty – Jackson Browne

9. Magic Carpet Ride – Steppenwolf

10. Ramblin’ Man – Allman Brothers

11. Radar Love – Golden Earring

12. Turn the Page – Bob Seger

13. Midnight Rider – Allman Brothers

These are what I’ve put on my road trip CD. What are some of your favorites when you go on the road?
