Life is too short

Life is too short…

To worry about the rain

To cry over spilled milk

To stress over things you can’t change

To judge others

To be miserable

To overthink

To over-analyze

To waste minutes away fighting about nothing

To hold grudges

Life is too short to waste it on anything that doesn’t make you happy or bring you joy. Hold loved ones close, treasure what you have, and cherish these moments because once they’re gone, they are gone. 





Listen to the beat, hear the words


Music is amazing. It really is. I feel bad for anyone who doesn’t enjoy music, but lets face it, most people enjoy music of some sort. Some might just like to tune into instrument, others rock and roll, and even polka music. I feel like a good song can touch your mind and your heart. It can pick you up when you feel down, motivate you when you don’t want to keep going, and express yourself when you can’t find the words. Currently, I’m obsessed with Avril Lavigne’s song, Head Above Water, and also Pink’s Walk Me Home. Anything motivational and upbeat seems to hit the spot for me. I’m quite excited that Avril seems to be coming back. Is it just me or was she MIA for a while? Anyhow. Her new material is excellent. Pink’s material is always excellent. 

Back in March, I think I have a post on it, I went to see the Toby Mac Hits Deep Tour. You want to feel music in your soul, go to a Christian concert. There is no rage, there is no negativity. The air just pulses with positive energy. I’ve also been to a few country music concerts. I love concerts at this point. I love the energy, I love the people moving and singing along. I’m sure there are performers out there that just don’t put on a good show, but I’ve been lucky and have had an awesome time at any concert. I always leave smiling and just feeling good. 

I’m having a rough day today and have been listening to music all day. It helps. The right music helps. Singing along, though I can’t sing, and moving around. I suggest it to anyone having a bad day. Need some suggestions on what to listen to? I have plenty! My top 10 artists are below:

  1. Pink
  2. Avril Lavigne
  3. We Are Messengers
  4. Toby Mac
  5. Kelly Clarkson
  6. Jordan Feliz
  7. Carrie Underwood
  8. Blake Shelton
  9. Disturbed (threw you off on that one didn’t I?)
  10. Josh Gallagher (give him time, he’s gonna be big!)


Change in this world needs to happen. Greed and power hurt, but we see so much of it. Why not reach out, why not do more with your life? You have money? Help others who don’t. Own a company and make millions? Pay your employees fairly. Want to make a difference? Do it. Volunteer, donate, help. Follow the good, extinguish the bad.
