February is coming to an end and it seems as though January lasted forever. I think that at this point we are all thinking the same thing: Spring Break. Although we have the rest of the year to look forward to, I just want to share a few songs that have got me through this first part of the year! I really believe in "putting things out into the universe". So if you are reading this and you haven't already, repeat everything you want to accomplish, put it out there, take chances, say something to that person you have been meaning to talk to, and again, take everything with a grain of salt.
Below are some tunes:
It's so easy to get caught up in the festivities that we loose sight of what a new year actually means. As soon as the clock strikes 12, some people are stuffing 12 grapes down their throats as it's traditional in some cultures, some are downing drinks, others are already saying their resolutions out loud, and the list goes on and on. Personally, my biggest focus this year is self-improvement and with that, I need to learn to be more forgiving towards myself.
Although it is barely the second day of the year, I have already heard two pieces of great advice. I was watching TheRewiredSoul on Youtube and for once the comments section had some insightful stuff. Two things that stuck were, "people can't be fixed, they are not houses" and "feelings are not facts"! Damn. Even a few hours later, and it's still in my mind. I want to focus mostly on the "feelings are not facts". It can apply to any feelings regarding anything. For example, I got some grades back last week. Were they what I wanted? No. Does it make me dumb? No. Did I try my best. Yes.
However, when I got them back I felt so dumb that I said it out loud! Ugh, I was so frustrated. Again, "feelings are not facts". I feel like we should apply that to everything and not be hard on ourselves, which bring be back to my resolution. It should be a reminder to embrace our imperfection and strive for something better.
Hope y'all enjoyed your holidays. It's a new year and there is always time to improve.
Much love. - D.O.M.E
(P.s. attached below is the song I was listening to while I typed this. Enjoy!)
I had written a long post about life and how it sometimes weighs us down and how easy it is to get caught up in the moment, but it got deleted. The gist of it was to make sure to take time for yourself. Below I will provide YouTube links to videos that help with those moments of relaxation, study, reflection, and self-love that get the creative juices flowing! Enjoy and stay put for new content soon!
Viva Las Vegas
Dance the night away
Lights all around me,
Law and Order
Coffee is my friend
Stress is my best friend always
But the law will do.
The Strip of Hopes and Dreams
All empty drinking
Boulevard of broken dreams
However, there's hope.
The Real Caesar's Palace
Tonight I'm in Italy
September has brought with it many mixed feelings whether it's happiness, sadness or nostalgia. Below are some tunes of the moment both old and new.
