The Power of Music

If this doesn’t make you cry, I don’t know what else will!

A touching video showing a former ballet dancer afflicted with memory loss gracefully dancing as she hears the music from Tchaikovsky’s ballet Swan Lake has gone viral worldwide.

The video was recently shared by the Asociación Música para Despertar, a Spanish organization that promotes music therapy for those afflicted by memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Since then, media organizationscelebrities and individuals across the globe have shared the video of former dancer Marta C. González.

Muggle Questions (from Melanie):

I still can remember my scariest nightmare. It was all in black and white. I was tiny *think Honey I shrunk the kids* and I was getting eating alive by a snail. Even to this day I always freak out a little bit when I see a snail,lol.

What food do you crave most often?

Lasagna, Lasagna….LASAGNA

What’s your grossest bug story?

Apart from killing mosquitoes, filled with my blood. I don’t think I really have any.

Where’d You Go…Kindness

Feels like this song relates a lot to Kindness and where did it go? I’m crying now,lol. I was also REALLY lazy over this past weekend with blogging. Just a lot going on.

Where’d you go?
I miss you so
Seems like it’s been forever
That you’ve been gone
She said, “Some days I feel like shit”
Some days I wanna quit, and just be normal for a bit”
I don’t understand why you have to always be gone
I get along but the trips always feel so long
And, I find myself tryna stay by the phone
‘Cause your voice always helps me when I feel so alone
But I feel like an idiot, workin’ my day around the call
But when I pick up I don’t have much to say
So, I want you to know it’s a little fucked up
That I’m stuck here waitin’, at times debatin’
Tellin’ you that I’ve had it with you and your career
Me and the rest of the family here singing “Where’d you go?”
I miss you so
Seems like it’s been forever
That you’ve been gone
Where’d you go?
I miss you so,
Seems like it’s been forever
That you’ve been gone
Please come back home.
You know the place where you used to live,
Used to barbeque up burgers and ribs,
Used to have a little party every Halloween with candy by the pile,
But now, you only stop by every once in a while,
Shit, I find myself just fillin’ my time,
Anything to keep the thought of you from my mind,
I’m doin’ fine, I plan to keep it that way,
You can call me if you find you have somethin’ to say,
And I’ll tell you, I want you to know it’s a little fucked up,
That I’m stuck here waitin’, at times debatin’,
Tellin’ you that I’ve had it with you and your career,
Me and the rest of the family here singing, “Where’d you go?
I miss you so,
Seems like it’s been forever,
That you’ve been gone.
Where’d you go?
I miss you so,
Seems like it’s been forever,
That you’ve been gone,
Please come back home
I want you to know it’s a little fucked up,
That I’m stuck here waitin’, no longer debatin’,
Tired of sittin’ and hatin’ and makin’ these excuses,
For while you’re not around, and feeling so useless,
It seems one thing has been true all along,
You don’t really know what you got ’til it’s gone,
I guess I’ve had it with you and your career,
When you come back I won’t be here and you’ll can sing it
Where’d you go?
I miss you so,
Seems like it’s been forever,
That you’ve been gone
Where’d you go?
I miss you so,
Seems like it’s been forever,
That you’ve been gone

Please come back home

Magically Monday #2

Welcome to my second “episode” of Magical Monday, where I am going to write nothing but something positive. Mondays have a very bad reputation and I get it, I mean most people’s working week starts on the Monday. From there it seems like a very long road. So lets try to make it fun.

For this Magic Monday, I wanted to talk about probably my most favourite musician in the whole wide world. Even if they are no longer apart of this world anymore. I almost have a whimsical love for this artist. Different time, different place, it totally would have happened,lol. He was kind of a whimsical person. I think it’s also one of the reasons that I liked my ex, a couple of years after we had broken up and I saw a photo of him. It freaked me out a lot, because my ex looked exactly like this artist. I do miss this artists beautiful spirit in the world.

Shall I stop speaking now?

I know that John probably talked the most about Peace, and I don’t think there isn’t a single soul that doesn’t love “Imagine” But too myself, George was the one who practised it the best. He wasn’t like John in that, George was a lot more gentle than John was. George was my kind of “peaceful” person. I just really think he was a sweet soul. Very dreamy, very laid back. Although apparently very serious when need be. He was just a dream.

Below is posted my favourite song of his, I don’t care it was “The Beatles” He wrote it. I always play it on the first day that I really feel like Spring is back. But also when I need cheering up, almost like a metaphorical sun.

Playlist of my Heart <3

So I heard one song this week and all these memories came flooding back. Then I don’t know if you know, but then on the side of YouTube playlists, all the songs that relate to that song were on there too.

So I’ve posted a few songs/videos that even now it brings back memories and feelings and maybe you’ll feel something too ❤

Nickelback – Far Away (They were my always go to group mid to late 00’s)…I was in a long distance relationship ❤ We are still friends ❤

Hinder – Better Than Me (Although hoping they weren’t doing crack. I always hoped that at least one of my ex’s felt like this…I doubt it,lol…But I had always hoped,lol)

Red Jumpsuit Apparatus – Your Guardian Angel

Michelle Branch – Goodbye to you – This one used to kill me. It was my LDR had finally broken up and I was being hated on by these two girls … and the boys liked them better than me…This song killed me because I knew it was true. I’ve played it with every single break up, including some old friends from a few years ago. When I knew in my heart the friendships were over…NOT…I repeat … NOT the “mean girls”.

Dixie Chicks – Not Ready to Make Nice…Oh my goodness…This song = an awesome … F^ck Yeah! and F^ck of Haters!

Jewel – Hands – Mainly, my hands are tiny…Seriously small,lol…But I also love the message behind, about no matter how small your hands are…Reach out.

Evanescence – My Immortal … I mean, if you didn’t like the song and this band…Were you truly into 90’s music?

Kelly Clarkson – Because of You

Hilary Duff – Come Clean…For the longest time I didn’t realise this song was a opening credit for a very popular 00’s show! I just loved it.

Kelly Clarkson – Breakaway … This was just me…and a good song to end on…Still have this song on my iPod,lol

The War is won! Believe it!

I don’t know how many readers of my Blog are aware of this. I don’t get that excited at the New Year, New Year. I know it’s a New Year in terms of a new calendar year. Too me though, I feel like a “new year” really begins on our birthday.

I had the weirdest experience on the bus today going to work and I think it has a lot to do with this belief of mine. I am learning to drive at the moment, so for the time being I am still travelling by bus and may continue to do after. I don’t mind the bus really, especially when the weather is nice. That’s for another day though.

As I coming to work I was listening to Thirty Second to Mars “This is War”. Now I don’t know if you know this reader, I have a video clip for every single song on my iPod, that is not the original video clip. So there I am on the bus, thinking of the video clip I had thought to this song. When it gets to certain lyrics of the song:

I do believe in the light, raise your hands up to the sky
The fight is done, the war is won, lift your hands towards the sun
Towards the sun, (it’s the moment of truth and the moment to lie
It’s the moment to live and the moment to die, the moment to fight)
Towards the sun,
Towards the sun, (it’s the moment of truth and the moment to lie
It’s the moment to live and the moment to die, the moment to fight)
The war is won (to fight, to fight, to fight, to fight)

I nearly start blubbering like a baby on the bus, luckily I had to get off just as it was starting.

I think it had to do, before I left for work this morning. I had had being having a conversation where I admitted that no matter what my ex-friends says about me, no matter what people who have a problem with and wont talk to me. No matter what they say, no matter how long they stay friends with each other for. I genuinely believe I AM, and will always, be the better friend.

I am not miserable when my friends are happy, I am miserable when they are, it disturbs me to know “friends” are only when happy when I’m miserable. If I hear something about someone I don’t think rings true, I will ASK that person. I don’t gossip behind their backs and tag them in passive aggressive memes with no actual “burn”, because the gossip isn’t true, and I don’t just ignore them. I don’t just gossip and NEVER ask the actual person they’re talking about. We are not in High School anymore. I will ask.

There is no fight, there is no War, because I am better. I am the better person and I BELIEVE that now.

That’s the difference…I actually do BELIEVE that I am the better person.

The End.

John Lennon
