Lyrics to love: 9.20.16

When I feel blue in the night
And I need you to hold me tight
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Dream

– Everly Brothers

Our loved ones in Heaven are closer than we often realize. I know that if I go to sleep thinking of them, they will visit me in my dreams.

Lyrics to love: 9.13.16

Everybody’s born to be different

That’s the one thing that makes us the same

So don’t let them hurt, try to change you

Don’t let them make you into something you ain’t

– Meghan Trainor

If you are proud of you, no one else’s opinion should matter.

Lyrics to love: 9.8.16

I’m broke but I’m happy

I’m poor but I’m kind

I’m short but I’m healthy, yeah

I’m high but I’m grounded

I’m sane but I’m overwhelmed

I’m lost but I’m hopeful baby

– Alanis Morissette

I’m a lot of things. But I’m always trying to be the best version of myself. That’s the most I can offer.

 

Lyrics to love: 9.7.16

I try to say goodbye and I choke

Try to walk away and I stumble

Though I try to hide it, it’s clear

My world crumbles when you are not here

-Macy Gray

Some call it God, some call it the soul, some call it spirit, but I know, when I walk away from what I know is true, what is right, what is just…that is when I choke and I stumble. When I walk the path toward being good and living happy, my world will not crumble.

Lyrics to love: 7.8.16

There’s more than one answer to these questions
pointing me in a crooked line

The less I seek my source for some definitive

The closer I am to fine

– Indigo Girls

I believe in what I know because I have faith. When I start to ask the big questions, I remind myself that, because of the sweet blessings of love in my life, this life is good. The closer I am to knowing that, the ‘closer I am to fine.’

Lyrics to Love: 6.30.16

Ain’t no man, a man that can change the shape my soul is in
There ain’t nobody here who can cause me pain or raise my fear
Cause I got only love to share
If you’re looking for truth I’m proof you’ll find it there

-Avett Brothers

 

My dreams, my soul, my angel in Heaven, all prove to me every day that love is real, and happiness is achievable on this Earth.

Lyrics to love: 6.17.16

Baby watch me up and go
Mama said that the boys like you
Never work out anyway
Girlfriends say are you gonna be sad
If he calls you up, you gonna take him back?
I said Hell no, oh Hell no!

-Ingrid Michaelson

 

I always say, there’s too much good in this world to deal with the bad. For all my independent women, the good girls who have been treated badly, the nice nice guys who seem to finish last – surround yourself with positive, good-hearted, kind people. Don’t allow the toxic ones into your head or your heart.

Lyrics to love: 6.9.16

When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

Don’t expect a free ride from no one
Don’t hold a grudge or a chip and here’s why
Bitterness keeps you from flying
Always stay humble and kind

-Tim McGraw

Sometimes, it’s so hard to do. Especially when it seems everyone around you is everything but ‘humble and kind.’

But keep trying. In the end, who you are on the inside and how you treat others is all that really matters.
