KICKASS song! shake yo ass!

Say Hey (I Love You) - Michael Franti & Spearhead

Happy Trails, Aunt Lin

my awesome aunt is leaving tomorrow on a travelling adventure around the US. she's retiring, got a motor home and she's about to set land.

i'm going to miss her dearly, but am very envious and excited for her that she gets to do this! i sure hope i get to experience travelling at some point in my life before i leave this earth. i certainly haven't done enough of it in my 33 years here.

so aunt lin, happy trails to you - start that blog, take a lot of pictures and keep us updated! i'm going to miss you so much!!!! love you!!!

Wildflower Festival

ok enough with the negative crap on my blog - bad vibes man. now for some positivity. this week has been a hilatiously busy week at work and i'm ready for a break!

the wildflower festival is going on this weekend in a suburb of the major city i live in. i've been every year with the exception of last year and it will be guaranteed good times. hopefully i will snap some good photos - i plan on taking my camera out there tomorrow for sure. SWEET lineup of music this year - i will be checking out : kool & the gang, jackopierce, (maybe rick springfield - he's been there every year and he's cheese-tastic) tonic, the toadies, the edgar winter band, night ranger (YAH!), kansas, the wailers and robert randolph and the family band.

happy weekend all! much love to you ~ namaste

Why Should I Care?

Diana Krall Why Should I Care
Uploaded by live-jazz

"Why Should I Care"

Was there something more I could have done?

Or was I not meant to be the one?

Where's the life I thought we would share?

And should I care?

And will someone else get more of you?

Will she go to sleep more sure of you?

Will she wake up knowing you're still there?

And why should I care?

There's always one to turn and walk away

And one who just wants to stay

But who said that love is always fair?

And why should I care?

Should I leave you alone here in the dark?

Holding my broken heart

While a promise still hangs in the air

Why should I care?

DailyOM: Emerging Courageous‏

i absolutely needed to read this today!


May 6, 2009
Emerging Courageous
Walking Through Your Fear

The situations, activities, and individuals that
frighten us remain static. Their relative intensity
does not change. Fear, on the other hand, self-
magnifies. It is when you are afraid and
envisioning all that might go wrong that the
energy underlying your fear grows. A tiny flicker of
anxiety can easily develop into a terror that
manifests itself physically and eventually paralyzes
you into inaction. Though frequently, in walking
through that fear, we discover that the strength
of our fright was out of synch with reality. And we
learn that doing what frightens us can lead to
great blessings. Confronting your trepidation head-
on will help you accept that few frightening
scenarios will ever live up to the negative
disasters that we sometimes play out in our minds.

Though fear is literally an evolutionary gift meant
to sharpen your senses and energize you during
times of great stress, it can nonetheless become a
barrier that prevents you from fulfilling your
potential by causing you to miss out on rewarding,
life-changing experiences. During the period before
you face your fear, you may have to deal with a
barrage of negative thoughts and emotions.
Walking through it, whether your fear is public
speaking, taking part in an activity that makes you
nervous, or asserting yourself when the odds are
against you, may be equally as difficult. But once
you have emerged unscathed on the other side,
which you will, you will likely wonder why you
assumed the worst in the first place. As you spend
time worrying about what might happen, it’s good
to know that your fear probably won’t happen at
all. It may feel like a great weight has been lifted
from your shoulders, and you will likely feel a
sense of passionate pride. Walking through your
fear can! mean taking risks and can require both
practice and patience. Since it is challenging to
act when you are gripped with fear, start small.

Each step you take into fear will strengthen you
and help you confront future fears with poise,
courage, and confidence. You will also find that
when you are willing to stare your fear in the face,
the universe will always offer you some form of aid
or support. When you see the heights of
accomplishment and personal evolution you can
attain when you walk through your fears, your
faith in yourself will grow, allowing your next step
to be easier.

please tell me if this really exists?

“Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep... wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you're just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have you.... The one who turns to his friends and says, 'that's her.'”
