Someone Who Embraces Your Flaws

Positive Outlooks Blog

Be with someone who loves you well. Someone who never belittles you. Even in the heat of an argument. Someone who is gentle with you, but does not treat you like you are fragile. Someone who knows what you are capable of, and celebrates those pieces of you. Not someone who is intimidated by your strength. Someone who can call you out for being a brat, but doesn’t make you feel guilty for being flawed. It is not love’s job to punish you. And remember the person you love is just as broken as you are when they fall short. No one is perfect – do not hold them to this standard. Find someone who is patient, forgiving, and apologetic. Someone who practices forgiveness freely and often. Love someone who is humble, kind, and empathetic. Not only with you, but with a beggar on the street, or a stranger in…

Ready To Face Life With A Brave Heart

Positive Outlooks Blog

I was not made to be able to handle everything that life throws at me because I do get upset when I am in terrible situations. I was not made to be happy and smiling all the time because I do cry when I am emotionally worked up. I do get mad at people who stab me in the back. I also hurt when my very own friends do things that break my heart. I am not supposed to be standing tall every day because I do stumble and fall. But YES when I am done with all this I do learn lessons from the punches that are thrown at me each day. They challenge me and help me to become emotionally strong and I am ready to face it all with a brave heart. So I can proudly say that I am perfect the way I am and…

Music Monday: Loser and Bae Bae

Music Monday

 

bb

Fandoms all over K-Pop have been losing their collective shits lately. Tao may or may not be leaving Exo, Epik High is touring America, BTS is coming to America and just released their new album and before anyone could properly deal with the emotional storm of I Need U BigBang hits us with the one-two punch of Loser and Bae Bae.

Now normally I listen to the songs and get a feel for them BEFORE I see the video. But it was the opposite. I saw the Loser video first (while listening to the song at the same time) then a day later I say the Bae Bae video.  I purposely chose sleep instead of watching the live stream of the concerts and I avoided every video and file of the songs (I’m really proud of me, I normally don’t have that much will power)

Loser

“At some point
I’ve gotten scared of people’s eyes
I’m sick of crying so I tried smiling
But no one recognizes me”

Honestly I found the song to be really sad, and it wasn’t something that expected and the video was equally sad, I had a hard time watching T.O.P walking down the street an emotional mess, and watching Daesung getting beat up at the gas station made me think that this is what he must have felt like when everyone was calling him a murder after the car accident, this video/song brought way to many feels .

Bae Bae

“Can you stay beautiful
So that even when times passes, my heart will still be able to flutter
Baby Baby please don’t fade away
For selfish me
Just the way you are you have to stay like that”

The first time I heard the song my very first thoughts were this sounds a lot like a red Hot Chili Peppers song, I don’t dislike the song, but I do think the acid trip of a video swayed my thoughts on the video( although it’s visually stunning), now it could have been my mood when I watched the video but I don’t get it (and I don’t think we are supposed to)

At the moment I’m I don’t have definite feelings about the songs of the videos either way, the songs were not what I expected, but at the same time I wasn’t sure what to expect from the group after a 3 year hiatus,  and II ‘m a firm believer that just because you like a group doesn’t mean that you have to like every things that they do (*cough “Dirty Cash” *cough*). And so for both of these songs I will simply say that I’m happy that they are back and look forward to the songs that they are gonna release next month.

I love how Koreaboo assumes that no one caught any of the sexual references in the song..

“Loser” and “Bae Bae” can be found on the  new single M

The Satisfaction of a List

Writing

 

 

Writing Prompt: Who doesn’t love a list? So write one! Top five slices of pizza in your town, ten reasons disco will never die, the three secrets to happiness — go silly or go deep, just go list-y.

list-for-living.2-1xswisr

 

 

First off, let me say that my entire life is list: a list of things I need to avoid, a list of things that I need to do, a list of things hat I need to purchase (this is really important, because I will go to the store and buy everything except what’s on my list) It’s not uncommon to find some type of list in my purse and my car.

But this is a small list that I have been quietly composing for a while

Things To Do Before I Turn 40

  1. Wear a Bikini
  2. Jump Out of a Plane
  3. Become a Organ Donation/Transplant Ambassador
  4. Be Grateful Everyday (I’m actually working on this at the moment)
  5. Hold a conversation with Someone in another Language

 

Until Next Time
