Ever heard the song “Walking On Sunshine” by Katrina and the Waves? I love that song, and to me that song has a lot of meaning.
“I used to think maybe you loved me now baby I’m sure
And I just cant wait till the day when you knock on my door
Now everytime I go for the mailbox, gotta hold myself down
Cos I just wait till you write me you’re coming around”
I love getting mail, no I’m not talking about E-Mail but snail mail. The feeling of opening an envelope and awaiting to read whats inside… especially when it comes from someone like my love. I remember getting the first letter (after he left) I was a mixture of smiles and tears of joy (literally) for the rest of the day. Just knowing that he thinks of me despite his extremely busy schedule makes me smile, and makes me feel that warm tingly feeling inside. Ever since then whenever I get a letter in the mail from him I kid you not I start singing the song.
“I’m walking on sunshine wooah!”
I value greatly the work that the post office does. Without them I don’t know how life would be like. They are the men and women that close the gaps of miles that stand in between two lovers. They bring us close although far away, and the sight of the post by the house makes me extremely happy. Thank you great people from the post office, THANK YOU for all that you, just know you bring me smiles with every letter you bring my way, especially from my sweetheart.
Smile, walk with me on sunshine! Come on!
I rarely have music posts but then I figured, why not? I listen to music on a daily basis, music is a part of who I am. I think everyone can relate to at least one song, or have one song we like to listen to. I personally am more of a lyrics person and if the lyrics are meaningful or have in somewhat something that relates to me its a song I will more than likely listen to again and again.
“Pain throws your heart to the ground, love turns the whole thing around”
Many times we’ve all had those days or phases when life just seems to like pushing us around. But it has happened (to me) that although I may have bad days or phases in life when even the smallest thing turns my frowns upside down. For example, a simple smile from someone I love is sure to make me smile. The action of a hug, or a few words of kindness can make a big difference.
“No it wont all go the way it should, but I know the heart of life is good”
My favorite line in the movie, can’t ring anymore truer than that. We all plan things, we make plans in our minds of what we would like our life to be. Sadly, and also thankfully (yes, thankfully) not everything turns out the way we plan it to be. Why thankfully? Think about it, would you have learned what you have from bad experiences if you hadn’t experienced them? Would you be equally thankful for what you have and value the instances where your plans have come out the way you wanted them if all your plans happened the way you wanted them to? I’m not saying we need to suffer to value life, but sometimes that’s really what makes us appreciate what we have.
“You know it’s nothing new, bad news never had good timing”
Sometimes is that flat tire on your way to your final exam, sometimes its the pluming that needs to get fixed when you just wasted all your money. Whatever it might be, we’ve all gone through this at one point or another, we just have to learn to roll with the punches of life. Its not about giving up, its about getting up whenever we are pushed down by the ironies of life.
Smile, because “… the heart of life is good.”
I’ve been asked a couple of times before if I ever come across writer’s block. I surely do! Many times! Now with this August goal to write a post a day I’ve had writer’s block more than ever. So what do I do to overcome this and continue with my challenge? Here are some of the things I do (in no specific order).
- Ask a friend! Sometimes I ask my friend what they think would be a good topic to write about.
- Listen to music. Sometimes music can inspire great words in our minds.
- Read a book or a blog. Great authors can lead us in the right path.
- Watch a movie. Ever been inspired by a cinematic scenery?
- Get up and forget about writing. Sometimes we need of thoughts and having that rest might give us new and refreshed ideas later on.
I had a teacher who told us to always carry a small book and something to write with, a pen, a pencil, a crayon or whatever it was that we wanted to write with. Many of us looked at our teacher wondering why he would say such thing. It was only later that I discovered that ideas come and go sometimes when you least expect it and if you don’t capture them in the moment they can go away and never be expressed. So hold on to your ideas, express them to the world!
Smile, capture an idea.
