For The Love Of Music: 17 May 2021

Willow – Taylor Swift

I’m like the water when your ship rolled in that night
Rough on the surface but you cut through like a knife
And if it was an open-shut case
I never would’ve known from that look on your face
Lost in your current like a priceless wine
The more that you say
The less I know
Wherever you stray
I follow
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans
That’s my man

Life was a willow and it bent right to your wind (oh)
Head on the pillow, I could feel you sneaking in
As if you were a mythical thing
Like you were a trophy or a champion ring
And there was one prize I’d cheat to win
The more that you say
The less I know
Wherever you stray
I follow
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans
That’s my man
You know that my train could take you home
Anywhere else is hollow
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans
That’s my man

Life was a willow and it bent right to your wind (oh)
They count me out time and time again
Life was a willow and it bent right to your wind (oh)
But I come back stronger than a 90’s trend

Wait for the signal and I’ll meet you after dark
Show me the places where the others gave you scars
Now this is an open-shut case
Guess I should’ve known from the look on your face
Every bait and switch was a work of art

The more that you say
The less I know
Wherever you stray
I follow
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans
That’s my man
You know that my train could take you home
Anywhere else is hollow
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans
That’s my man

The more that you say
The less I know
Wherever you stray
I follow
Begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans
That’s my man
You know that my train could take you home
Anywhere else is hollow
Begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans
That’s my man

Hey, that’s my man
That’s my man
Yeah, that’s my man
Every bait and switch was a work of art
That’s my man
Hey, that’s my man
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans
That’s my man

I hope every one had a good nights rest. I am up early this morning because I have a busy day ahead.

Tonight we are having loadshedding from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. I usually get some extra editwork done in this slot.

Willow and Ogies both slept on the bed with us. Only Shadow was missing. Maybe if he sees how good Ogies and Willow get along he will join us.

According to the weather forecast we are having a cool day with a maximum temperature of 17°C.

On my To-Do List for today.

  • Laundry
  • Pet shop
  • Bake peach tart

Have a Magical Day: 17 May 2021

28 Weeks of practicing Gratitude….

Week 14: Have a Magical day!

“Intentions compressed into words enfold magical power.”

Deepak Chopra

“To see and experience the most magical day of your life, you can be grateful for your whole day before you live it! To Have A Magical Day, you simply think through your plans for the day and say the magic words, thank you, for each one going well, before you’ve lived it. It’s the easiest thing to do, it only takes a few minutes, but the difference it can make in your day is incredible. Being grateful for your day beforehand creates a magical day through the law of attraction; when you give thanks for the experiences in your day going well, you must receive back experiences going well!

If you don’t believe you have the power to affect the circumstances of your day so dramatically, think about a time when you woke up grumpy or in a bad mood. You went off into your day, and one thing after another went wrong, until by the end of the day you were exclaiming that you had a heck of a bad day – as though the bad day happened by accident. Well, the only reason you had a bad day was because you took your bad mood from the morning with you, and it was your bad mood that was the cause of one thing after another going wrong.

Even waking up in a bad mood doesn’t happen by accident, because it means that you went to sleep thinking negatively about something, perhaps without realizing it. It’s the very reason why you are doing the Magic Rock practice last thing at night, to ensure that you go to sleep thinking good thoughts. The Magic Rock practice at night combined with Count Your Blessings every morning sets your good mood at night and in the morning, and they guarantee that you are feeling good before you go off into your day.

To Have A Magical Day you need to feel good. I don’t know of anything other than gratitude that guarantees to put you in a good mood almost instantly.”

Rhonda Byrne, The Magic

This week’s activity is as easy as breathing. To experience a magical day, all you have to do is say thank you in advance. Yes, you are reading correctly. To have a magical day, be grateful in advance.  

 “Thank you for safe travels to work.” 

“Thank you for the lovely dinner I prepared it was delicious.” 

 “Thank you for one of the best study days ever.”

“Thank you for the best shopping experience ever.”

Have you ever woken up and was in a bad mood? I have, and then my whole day spirals out of control. I mess toothpaste on my shirt, the milk is sour, I catch every red robot, and I am late for my appointment…

From today you don’t need to have a bad day ever again. As soon as you wake up and say Thank you for being alive, you also say, Thank you for the magical day I am going to have.

For today’s activity, work your way through the plans you have for today until bedtime. With each event, say the magic words, thank you, for it has gone well. Be grateful in advance that it went well. After you have finished being grateful for all the plans in your day going well, end the activity by saying: And thank you for the great news coming to me today!

Thank you with all my heart for stopping by. Thank you for your continued support. I am truly grateful for every view, like, follow and comment.

Stay safe and grateful.

Have a Blessed day.
