Final Day of the Song/Lyric Challenge

music noteGood morning y’all! I hope you have a wonderful day and I hope you are feeling well!

This is my final Day of the Lyric Challenge. I was so incredibly happy to have been nominated for this challenge from Just Me at https://happymesshappiness.wordpress.com. I have been nominated for numerous challenges over the year I have been blogging and I have enjoyed all of them, but this lyric/song challenge added a little additional excitement for me to be able to share some of my favorite songs. It is fun to share just a few songs that I love and the reason why as well! I hope you have enjoyed the songs I have shared with you. Also I want to thank Just Me again for thinking of me for this fun challenge and I do encourage y’all to visit Just Me’s site at https://happymesshappiness.wordpress.com, I think you will find it to be a great read!

Of course there are rules to follow all challenges, but they are not that difficult. I have found ways to break the rules in other challenges, but I behaved in this one and followed the rules (some of you are probably shocked). With that said here are pretty easy rules for this challenge:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Share one of your favorite song/lyrics, one at a time for three days
  3. Nominate three other bloggers each day

imagesMy final song/lyric I am going to share with you is another song from The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. This was one of the first songs I heard from this band and even before I asked Ronnie where he came up with this song, I could feel the meaning behind the song! It is an extremely powerful song and I hope you will enjoy it and understand the true meaning behind it.

Face Down – The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

Hey girl you know you drive me crazy
One look puts the rhythm in my hand
Still I’ll never understand why you hang around
I see what’s going down

Cover up with make up in the mirror
Tell yourself it’s never gonna happen again
You cry alone and then he swears he loves you

Do you feel like a man
When you push her around?
Do you feel better now, as she falls to the ground?
Well I’ll tell you my friend, one day this world’s got to end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found

A pebble in the water makes a ripple effect
Every action in this world will bear a consequence
If you wait around forever you will surely drown
I see what’s going down

I see the way you go and say you’re right again
Say you’re right again
Heed my lecture

Do you feel like a man
When you push her around?
Do you feel better now, as she falls to the ground?
Well I’ll tell you my friend, one day this world’s got to end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found

Face down in the dirt
She said “This doesn’t hurt!”
She said “I finally had enough!”

Face down in the dirt
She said “This doesn’t hurt!”
She said “I finally had enough!”

One day she will tell you that she has had enough
It’s coming round again

Do you feel like a man
When you push her around?
Do you feel better now, as she falls to the ground?
Well I’ll tell you my friend, one day this world’s got to end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found

Do you feel like a man
When you push her around?
Do you feel better now, as she falls to the ground?
Well I’ll tell you my friend, one day this world’s got to end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found

Face down in the dirt
She said “This doesn’t hurt!”
She said “I finally had enough!”

Motivational Monday!

Monday to shineGood morning y’all! I hope you had a wonderful week and you are ready for a brand new week full of nothing but pure happiness! Monday mornings are never my favorite, but changing my thoughts about what Monday can stand for has help! I no longer view the mean alarm clock that goes off at 5:15 am as my enemy, but now I try to view that horribly annoying alarm clock as my trigger to start a new day! On Monday morning we can let go of everything that happened last week,whether good or bad and start fresh! Everything that happened last week is the past and we can not change the past, but we can alter our present time!

Even thinking positive about Monday morning, I think we all always need a little motivation as a jump-start to the week! I hope you enjoy the quote that I am sharing with you and find as much meaning in it as I do!

I want to thank you for stopping by my site on this beautiful Monday morning! I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on the quote that I have shared!! I also wanted to ask y’all if you would want to see motivational quotes more than once a week. I was thinking about doing Motivational Monday and maybe Thursday as well. I do not want to do anything with Wednesday because fellow blogger does this and she is AMAZING! Speaking of which if you have not already seen Mackenzie’s site, you should visit her site! She is amazing and has the strength of a true warrior. Mackenzie’s site is https://lifewithanillness.com/ As always please remember I am sending y’all LOTS of love❤ and comfort!

Day 1 of the Lyrical Challenge!

I am so excited to have been nominated by Just Me at https://happymesshappiness.wordpress.com for the Lyric challenge because I do have a true love for music! It is so wonderful to have been nominated for a challenge by such an amazing person and I just want to thank you once again for this! For anyone that has not visited Just Me’s site, please check out, I think you will enjoy it!!

You know there is always rules to everything in life and I have broken some rules for challenges, but I am going to follow the rules for this challenge! I know y’all are shocked! Here are the rules for this fun challenge!!

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Share one of your favorite song/lyrics, one at a time for three days
  3. Nominate three other bloggers each day

The song/lyrics I would love to share with y’all  is “Your Guardian Angel” by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. This song has a lot of meaning to me because it was the song the band played after my husband proposed to me on stage! ❤Yes, I did just say my husband proposed to me on stage with one of our favorite bands! Ronnie Winter is the singer and has a ❤heart of gold! We had drove to Charleston, SC for my birthday almost 8 years ago and were so excited The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus was playing a show there. After the show we ended up hanging out with the band, which we had done previously. Anyways, my husband told Ronnie he was going to propose to me that weekend and Ronnie had the genius idea for us to come to their show the following day in Columbia, SC. There is a lot more to this incredible story, but this was the basic! I hope you enjoy this song and please if you enjoy great music check more songs out by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, ALL of their songs are great!!

“Your Guardian Angel”- The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

When I see your smile
Tears run down my face
I can’t replace
Now that I’m strong I have figured out
How this world turns cold
And it breaks through my soul and I know
I’ll find deep inside me
I can be the one

I will never let you fall
I’ll stand up with you forever
I’ll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

Tears run down my face
I can’t replace
Now that I’m strong I have figured out
How this world turns cold
And it breaks through my soul and I know
I’ll find deep inside me
I can be the one

I will never let you fall
I’ll stand up with you forever
I’ll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

It’s ok
It’s ok
Seasons are changing and waves are crashing and
Stars are falling all for us
Days grow longer and nights grow shorter
I can show you I’ll be the one

I will never let you fall
I’ll stand up with you forever
I’ll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven
‘Cause you’re my
You’re mine
My true love
My whole heart
Please don’t throw that away
‘Cause I’m here for you
Please don’t walk away and
Please tell me you’ll stay
Yeah
Waohohaoh
Stay
Woaohoh
Waohohoh
Use me as you will
Pull my strings just for a thrill
And I know I’ll be ok
Though my skies are turning grey (grey)

I will never let you fall
I’ll stand up with you forever
I’ll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

I will never let you fall
I’ll stand up with you forever
I’ll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you send me to heaven

I will never let you fall
I’ll stand up with you forever
I’ll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven
