HeartSongPoet (Me) is back at it just for a second. I’m reading a book I probably should have read a while ago, definitely before I made the decision I made last July. Although romantic love is no longer one of the primary focuses of this blog I won’t count out the idea of it existing again one day in my life. In the mean time as I work on myself I have decided to take on reading something to help me the next time romance decides to meander my way.
Thanks to a fellow blogger MultidemensionalHe (go on check ’em out) I took the quiz myself to find out my “Love Language”. I do believe it was dead on and perhaps when I’m feeling generous enough I may share with you all what my results were. If you haven’t taken the test I suggest doing so. It helped me understand why certain things are more damaging to me than others in a relationship and why certain things mean more to me than others.
The book is actually titled 5 Love Languages and by clicking the link you can purchase a paperback copy for under $10 and it’s free shipping worldwide. So, as I learn more about myself and others I may decide to share more on the matter.
In the mean time here is also some local music from Agent Midi a producer in my area. I heard this song after listening to a few tracks on SoundCloud from another artist I have featured up here Liion Gamble. I fell in love with it and have played it like a million times back to back (I’m only exaggerating a very tiny bit).
Today is a special day for some one who shares my blood. She is an up and coming artist from Raleigh, NC whom I’ve had the pleasure of knowing since she was in diapers. I’ve watched this young lady go from never letting me sleep in my bed alone to barely having time to hang with me lol.
I was blessed enough to be there when we (as a family) discovered her angelic voice. She was tiny but her voice was an atomic bomb back then and over time it has only grown more potent. The vocals on this young lady is a force to be reckoned with. She started out very shy but sang around the house daily. Though it was a nuisance at times for me when I just wanted peace and quiet (lol) but all the practice has truly paid off.
Although she hasn’t quite finished her first single yet I’m still oh so proud to introduce you all to the beautiful, bold, vocally blessed B. Feleice! (Happy Birthday little sis!)
One year ago today I met this young man at a key transitioning stage in my life. He was very positive and very helpful. He was like my Winston Shakespeare and I was Stella, he gave me my groove back. 😀
With that being said, he turned out to be a pretty good lyricist as well. In the first line of the song he states “I’ve been given the gift of gab..”. Quite true I must say, if you take the time to actually listen to the lyrics of his music there’s no way a thinking person could just pass it up.
I chose this song for a number of reasons. One because it actually helped me keep my head up during a crazy time in my life. “Let it all work out..” words that I was praying and trying to live by. To this day the chorus will pop up in my head when I find myself worrying too much about my external circumstances.
So without further ado I present to you Mr. Liion Gamble “All Work Out”, enjoy!
So, I once maintained a blog called Move To The Beat of Your Drum. On that blog I posted music I love but then I just started sharing it up here. So, one of the categories on the revamp will be *drum roll* Rock To The Beat of My Own Drum.
Although I’ll try to keep up with the musically influenced titles on my other posts and feature songs at the bottom, I intend to do a little more under this category. I want to start checking out more local artists and up and coming artists.
While in New Orleans my ears were graced with many beautiful sounds. On my last day I was swept off my feet by an artist named Zeno (now Xeno) Moonflower. His street performance made it so hard to leave the spot I was standing in. I kept wanting more.
Without further ado I present Hell of A Woman by Xeno Moonflower.
So, I debated briefly on the title. At first I was going to let the title be the name of the song as I usually do with music posts but this post is more of a confession/realization.
That being said the song below is by Byron Cage, called I Will Bless The Lord. Now, back when I was in I believe my second semester at the local community college this song used to come on like clock work on the radio. I mean each day at a particular time it came on.
Back track a little more. I was born and raised in the city that the local community college is located in. In fact when people ask what part of the State or even city I’m from I always say the all over the county all together because I moved around so much. Yet, when I finally started driving by myself I had to always look up directions and print them out (obviously before a few technology advances).
So, jump back to this song and me attending this school. The school has quite a few campuses throughout the county. My second semester was my first time having to attend classes at the main campus. So, of course I had to print out directions to and from. Getting there wasn’t so bad leaving for whatever reason always got me. Perhaps it was the traffic pattern and the weird change in streets I had to watch out for just to get back on the highway. So, I actually used to praise God like legit in tears thanking God I made it to the highway without getting lost. And each time this song would be on the radio and it would always hit the peak in the song by the time I hit the highway and I’d blast it by that point. Though I’m sure I praised for other reasons too as the song played out my primary reason was getting to my destination safely without being lost.
This was not like a 1 day thing, this I did for at least a week or 2 if my memory serves me right. So, I said all of that to say I think I have a little anxiety stuff going on deep down lol. I just happened to want to hear this song tonight and I remembered those moments. Although it also reminded me that I was also so grateful then for simple things that some people (including myself these days) take for granted. I’m also just coming to terms with my flaws.
IRONIC MOMENT OF REALIZATION:
I posted somewhere else as a joke that people please pray for my low tolerance of others on the road. Ha! God has a funny way of answering prayer. 😁😁😁
