live life with no regrets … just love and appreciate
“So here I am sitting in a corner
feeling the world around me, slowly caving in …
watching the walls coming closer
as I shrivel up into a ball
getting smaller and smaller …
Feeling the pressure incase me
trapping my soul …
For after death, my souls all I have,
and as I take my last breaths
I appreciate what life I have left …
just gotta live life with
– Liza Mae (Drunken State in Kentucky – May 20, 2005)
another year of my life has passed and as I trace back my past … I smile with great appreciation. Â As of late, I started to look at all the people in my life with such love and appreciation that I am starting to feel all this love in my heart that it shows in everything I do. Â I’m sure the love was always there but I took it for granted and I apologize. Â Now that I’m starting to pay attention I feel truly loved. Â Maybe it is due to the fact that I started to look for love within myself and God that it transferred outwardly to people around me.
“My friends wonder what is wrong with me
‘Coz I’m caught up in a hazy love, you see
It’s comeback to let me know
Got a thing called love and it won’t let go
Love is the word, have you heard, it’s superb
It’s got groove, it’s got style, it’s got feeling
Love is the word that I’ve heard
It’s so hard to describe what it is that I’m feeling|
What you know about love?
The truest kinda love I know
Is when I love myself for my soul
What good am I to you if I don’t love myself
Before I love someone else?
The realest kinda love I know
Is when I learn to love and let go,
Sometimes you cannot hold on to
To the river when, when it flows”
– Sweet Back | Love is the Word
I have never felt this way before and I hope the feeling doesn’t fade. Â I appreciate everyone that has influenced my life in the most positive ways for you light up my life. Â The least I can do is show my appreciation.
