Happy Valentine’s Day! #happyvalentinesday #love


Today is the day of love, romance, and exchanging gifts. Although, for the latter, this special day means more than exchanging gifts. Valentine’s Day is the day to come together in peace and harmony, doing something special for someone, and for yourself. Don’t forget to do what takes to make you happy. Practice #selflove .
The day to share love and to celebrate it. And an act of kindness, if I might add. All of the above should be everyday.

I pray that everyone have a wonderful, loving, bless day. 

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

Don’t Be Afraid To Make A Change To Be A Better You

I told myself over a year ago that in order for me to move forward in life, I must make a change. To come out of whatever shell I’m in and away from the naysayers who felt like I would be doing something wrong if I make a change that I haven’t tried before. Or to just do something with my life other than allowing those who don’t care about me no way or another to dictate to me believing that I should remain where I am.
Because, being in a situation that no longer serving you, especially when you’ve done all that you could do and you’re not where you want to be, literally and figuratively, shouldn’t have to remain the same. I never could get the saying, “the more things change, the more they stay the same.” I feel like if one way isn’t working, you should try something else. You have that right to do so.
That what life is all about- reinventing yourself, to be a better version of yourself.
We have one life and we have to live it on our own terms, not anyone else’s.

A song that had inspired me over the years but it took going through a lot to know that enough is enough, is a song by Kelly Clarkson called, Breakaway.

The lyrics can explain it better than I can.

Here’s part of the lyrics:

“I’ll spread my wings, and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes till I touch the sky
And I’ll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget all the ones that I love
I’ll take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway”

#SongLyricSunday : Adele- Hello #music #love


I hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday or going to enjoy it, depending on where you are in the world. Todayโ€™s theme is โ€œphone calls/callingโ€ by Helen Vahdati.

Have you ever wanted to make a call to someone but canโ€™t reach them? A dear friend, or in most cases, a love you lost contact with? There are so much distance between the two of you. And you want to be able to reach them to apologize for whatever reason it may be, but you there may be a connection lost of the lines.

It can be a devastating thing, but you don’t give up.

P.S. I have taken the liberty of uploading the shorter version which isn’t a video, only an audio because it goes straight into playing the song. ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

Lyrics:

Hello it’s me
I’ve been wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet
To go over everything
They say that time’s supposed to heal ya
But I ain’t done much healing
Hello, can you hear me?
I’m in California dreaming about who we used to be
When we were younger and free I’ve forgotten how it felt
Before the world fell at our feet There’s such a difference between us
And a million miles
Hello from the other side
I must have called a thousand times To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home
Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried
To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart
Anymore

Hello, how are you?
It’s so typical of me to talk about myself, I’m sorry
I hope that you’re well
Did you ever make it out of that town
Where nothing ever happened?
It’s no secret that the both of us
Are running out of time

Hello from the other side
I must have called a thousand times To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home
Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried
To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart
Anymore
(Highs, highs, highs, highs, lows, lows, lows, lows)
Anymore
(Highs, highs, highs, highs, lows, lows, lows, lows)
Anymore

(Highs, highs, highs, highs, lows, lows, lows, lows)
Anymore
(Highs, highs, highs, highs, lows, lows, lows, lows)
Anymore

Hello from the other side
I must have called a thousand times To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home
Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried
To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart
Anymore

Take Care Of Yourself First #Quote


(Late post. Unedited.)

Good morning/afternoon/evening everyone! I hope you all are doing well.

The above quote is a problem I used to have, and still do just not as bad as before. I’m getting better.

No matter how bad you want to help or do something for a person, you have to first make sure you have taken care of yourself first.

Please do take care of your mental and physical health. I’ve learned the hard way. Now I’m dealing with my doctor (gyno) won’t give my health insurance a prior authorization needed to get a mammogram since I’m under age. There’s nothing she can do, she told me.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, I’ve been experiencing severe pelvic pain for awhile that I knew better not to ignore. When she had done an ultrasound, she found small fibroids. Again, nothing she can do about it, because they are small and I just have to hope they don’t get worse.

Long story short, I’m trying to go back to the doctor I had when I was pregnant with my daughter. I’m told that my last doctor will have to send them a referral since given my type of insurance, I have to since I’m not pregnant now. They got me going back and forth between the two.

Also, I lost weight, not much but it’s something so far. I’m still eating right and exercising. I can’t stay away from my sweets though.

I believe I have jump off topic, but I just wanted to share with you all that it’s okay to help others in any way you can, BUT, take care of yourself first and foremost.

Take care,

Pamela.

What do you do to take care of yourself, mentally, physically, etc?
