Love Is All Around: Song A Day Challenge – Day 5

It is everywhere and it’s strong. Love. A deep feeling, that leaves us longing, gives us butterflies, happiness, blues but also a feeling of belonging. The most beautiful thing in life is when you find the right person to share it with, to walk next to each other, carry each other, lift each other up, support each other, make each other better. It’s about your “partner in crime”, the one you can steal horses with, the one you want to build on for the rest of your life. It’s about give and take.

I have found my other half and I’m sure glad I did. I know we have something special and I’m grateful for it every single day. We have a story. A story that started many years ago and is still a work in progress. I find a couple’s story one of the most beautiful things to hear or read and luckily many of you already shared yours with me to highlight on my blog in my feature Couples – Your Stories.

Do you have a story to share? A story about your special someone? I would love to hear it. It’s easy, you know. Just email it to amommasview@gmail.com (or leave the link to it in the comments) and I will share it on my blog and link back to yours. All those stories are special and every single one of them puts a smile on people’s faces 🙂

This is also my last post for the Song A Day Challenge. Thanks heaps to The Bag Lady, who has nominated me for this fun little exercise. Today I would like to invite For The Love Of Facts to participate. Have heaps of fun and I can’t wait to check out your song choices 😉

The rules are:

  • Post a song a Day for five consecutive days
  • Post what the lyrics mean to you ( optional)
  • Post the name of the song and video 
  • Nominate two different bloggers each day of the challenge.

Share Your World – March 27th, 2017

It’s a beautiful Tuesday morning over here in sunny Australia. While we enjoy calm fall weather down here in the South, up in North Queensland people brace for the landfall of a huge cyclone. My thoughts are with all the people that will be in the middle of it and I hope everyone will get out of it safe and sound.

I’ve never lived in an area where natural disasters were common. All we got from time to time where avalanches on top of the mountains and while sometimes those let to people being injured or killed it was still something that happened only on top of the mountain. I’m not sure if I could deal with living in an area where you know that a cyclone, a hurricane or a typhoon hits. I’m not sure if I could deal with strong earthquakes on a regular basis while you wait for THE one. Sitting here, typing this and having a cup of tea while listening to a bird singing its song outside and not having to worry about something you can’t control is how I like it.

And just right now I thought that there is so much I can’t control. Not just the weather, not just the earth as such. Nothing is really in my control and yet I believe it is. We are only in control of our actions. And maybe that’s also why people get used to the storms and the earthquakes, the returning floods and fires. Because they have realized that there is nothing out there that you can actually control. That the only thing you can control is how you deal with it and where you will go from there.

Funny where an intro to Cee’s Share Your World post can take you. In a way I just had one of those realizations by simply writing an intro. And now my head is processing it all. Time to get to Cee’s questions I guess and let’s see where they will take me this time 😉

The following song is called The Sea and is a Morcheeba song. I don’t know when I heard that song for the first time but I often listened to it when I was on the road to or back from a block of work. It calmed me down after an event or gave me energy before one. It made me dream, smile, think. I still love the song…

Today I’d like to invite Cee to participate in this challenge. I hope you are up for it 🙂

Tell Me Something Good #50

Image result for quote one day or day one you decide

 

Make it your day your day one! It’s so much better than just being another day among so many. I saw this quote on my FB feed today and couldn’t resist making it part of this post. So let’s do it. Let’s start the week on a positive note! Make it a special day!

It’s easy:

  • Mention something that you consider being good in the comments
  • Or write a post about it on your blog (please don’t forget the pingback if you do so I don’t miss out and also share the link to it in the comments below). Something good that happened to you recently, or something good you will experience in a little while, or something good you know will happen soon. Something that makes you feel good.
  • Share this post and invite your followers as well.

Before I share my good thing with you let’s give each other a virtual high five for being awesome…

Hollywood Suite movies movie film 80s GIF

… and another one. Because we truly deserve it. And one more… and while we keep high five-ing who remembers the movie the gif is from? Can you hear the music from this scene while looking at the gif too? Anyway, here is another high five for all of you! Let’s do this:

“My life is back to normal. I have played with my children, caught up on the chores that had to be done and have found time to read up on comments on my blog. While I’m typing this I hear my children giggle while they chase each other around and it makes me even happier. I don’t think it’s that normal that a boy and a girl get along so well with each other and find stuff they both enjoy doing on a regular basis. I think it is a truly good thing that they are so close and I’m happy it’s the case.”

 

Song A Day Challenge – Day 3

I love a good challenge and I also love music. So the combination of the two make me excited. Thanks heaps to The Bag Lady, who has nominated me for the Song A Day Challenge. As it is the first time for me to participate in this challenge I had to have a look at the rules (here they are):

The rules are:

  • Post a song a Day for five consecutive days
  • Post what the lyrics mean to you ( optional)
  • Post the name of the song and video 
  • Nominate two different bloggers each day of the challenge.

This song is from a Matchbox 20 album that I listened over and over and over. This song always stood out in a way to me. Just because of the brutal honesty. He describes how she finds out that she doesn’t care what he is dreaming about and then kicks him out. I do believe that the moment you realize someone’s dreams are not important to you is the moment you realize that the relationship is not a deep one. If you love someone you do care. You are interested in what’s going on in their head. You want to take part. If it’s not there then you are not invested. If you are not invested, if your heart is not in it fully, it’s not worth to hang on. You better let go.

Today I’d like to pass the challenge on to Josh Wrenn, blogging at My Friday Blog. Have fun 🙂

Not much to say about this one, just that it was one of the songs I listened to after a break up. Over and over and over and over again… mixed feelings… a lot of mixed feelings…

I would like to pass the challenge on to Just Plain Ol’ Vic today. Have fun… 🙂
