Blog Challenge: Day 24 — Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)

kick dirtDamn this blog challenge!



I have created so many playlists over the years it’s not even funny, but given that was a different time, place, and experience in my life, I can’t use any of them.



Here I go with a new playlist…

To My Love:

Even though you and I both like music, your appreciation of it if very different to mine, but I’ve created this play list because these are songs that remind me of you and of us.  These songs are based on lyrical content or from memories we’ve created based on these songs.  You’ve become one of the most important people in my life and I thank you for your presence, your love, your fidelity, and for being my best friend.  We’ve seen each other through some really bad times and conversely through some of our very best of times; each of which have brought us to where we are and will guide us to our continued journey.  We’ve survived relationships that may not always have been the best for us, but from each we’ve learned how to become better lovers and friends now.  We’re blessed to have found each other even though we weren’t really looking at each other that way initially.  I guess it’s true what they say about the best relationships being formed 1) from being great friends and 2) when you weren’t expecting it.

Blog Challenge: Day 21: (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?


For me,it goes without saying that I’d go to the hospital and be there to support my friend. I’m sure that whatever fight we go into wasn’t something that would have had us never speaking to each again anyway.  Well, that is unless…Nah, I’m just joking.

Life and death situations show you just how short life is and how easily things can and do change.

Blog Challenge: Day 15: Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.


My walk in life has been nothing more than by God’s grace!  He has seen me through so much and even when I didn’t know how to pray; how to say “thank you”; or get my life right, He was still there for and with me.

I can’t say that I’ve ever purposefully tried to live without Him, but I do know that I’ve tried to live without His guidance, direction, and inspiration; those are the times when I needed Him the most.

My faith is strong and I include God in my life daily. I take none of whom I’ve turned out to be lightly and I know it’s by His will that I’m still standing and still strong.  I am purposed by His love for me and for that I’d know I can’t or won’t live without Him.


Yea, I said it!

Either it is or it isn’t…

“It’s like people who want to feel only happy but not sad,” she said. “It never works. You don’t get to pick and choose. At least, I don’t think so.” As said by Grace, a 4-grader from the book I’m reading, Don’t Let Me Go by Catherine Ryan Hyde that I recently read.

I thought it funny how we pay little attention to children when they speak, but in this case, what she said spoke loud and clear as to the action of adults. As adults, we have a tendency to want to pick and choose our emotions as if one is better than the other or that being happy makes everything all better. Welllll, it really doesn’t. We have contrasting emotions for a reason because we simply can’t have it all just one way or there’d be no balance’; and we need balance in everything and every aspect of our lives.

I do think there are many that choose to be one emotional state or another, but it’s typically because the alternative aren’t always favourable. If you’re sad and depressed all the time, then who’d want to be around you and what pleasures would you experience in life? (rhetorical) Being happy all the time doesn’t mean we’re free from pain or heartache either. I think we simply choose to deal with the pain and then seek and choose happiness as the better way to be.

There is a ying and yang in all of us!

Love the life you live; live the life you love!
