Heavy Hearted

Standard

Send Me An Angel
– Alicia Keys

Sometimes I feel like I don’t belong anywhere
It’s gonna take so long for me to get to somewhere

Sometimes I feel so heavy hearted
But I can’t explain cause I’m so guarded
But that’s a lonely road to travel
And a heavy load to bear

And it’s a long, long way to heaven
But I gotta get there…
Can you send an angel?
Can you send an angel?

Cause I don’t wanna feel
Like a dove with no wings
And I don’t wanna know
What a heart of stone sings

But that’s a lonely road to travel
And a heavy load to bear
And it’s a long, long way to heaven
But I gotta get there

Can you send an angel?
Can you send me an angel?
Please send me an angel
Can you send me an angel?

My Musical Soulmates: Etta James and Whitney Houston

Standard

 

Words cannot describe how sad I am at the news of first Etta James passing and then 3 weeks later the passing of Whitney Houston. My heart breaks at the loss of these two incredible, talented, and beautiful women!  I love these women, their music, their stories. Rest in peace Etta and Whitney, you blessed this world with a gift no one ever will be able match. You inspired me to live big, love great, and push forward through all life’s trials and tribulations! You will both be missed and always loved. Rest in peace. 

 

 

H-E-Double Hockey Sticks

My life, thus far, has unquestionably panned out to be entirely different than I ever expected it to be.

Man oh man, when I was just 12 years old, quickly approaching my 13 birthday, I would think about how great being a teenager would be, how much fun it would be to grow up, and how awesome it would be make new friends. Well, I am now 20 years old, quickly approaching my 21st birthday, and life has definitely been fun, filled with new friends, and teenagehood was actually not to horrible. Of course there were the unexpected bumps and bruises that came along the way. Yeah, people expect their life to be a certain way and to go along a precise path, but the bumps and bruises we get traveling down those paths are rarely expected. It is inevitable that we all have unexpected good and/or bad things show up in the middle of our paths, it’s just life.

Honestly, I have no idea what I am continuing to write about. I started writing about something that was on my mind and as I continued to write I think I switched gears and started writing to make me look good and attract readers or whatever. Pssh….NO BRIELLE! NO BRIELLE! I am glad I am catching my self. I am glad I writing down what I am thinking through my head. This has always been my problem, thinking ALL THE STINKIN TIME but never talking about it whether with my self or with someone else. I have seriously bottled up so much stuff- good stuff, bad stuff, and just stuff that I have no idea if it’s good or bad.

So here I am confusing the H-E-DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS of whoever is reading this. But you know I am ok with that. I am not here to impress anyone. I am here to just get things off my chest, my heart, my head, and my life. So I guess welcome to my pretty screwy, confusing, nonsense of a blog. J But as far as what I was talking about above I am sure I will kick back into talking about that someday, but just not today. J I will leave you with a quote that kind of links what I was originally talking about and what I finished with.

Today, I am kind of in a fog. I am not sure if it is because of the weather or the painkillers I am taking for my sprained ankle I so wonderfully got on Friday afternoon last week, either way I am just kind of zoned out. Therefore, today’s post will pretty much consist of an interesting quote I found today on one of my favorite tumblr Quote Book; http://quote-book.tumblr.com/.

“The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them – words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they’re brought out. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you’ve said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That’s the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a teller, but for want of an understanding ear.” – Stephen King
