For Wednesday, August 17: Here I'm Home

My friend, Jason, tweeted the other day that this video and song were a must and far be it from me to not obey!  :)   I'm totally in the dark about Jeff Carl, so I'm super glad that Jason tweeted about him and his music.  He plays guitar and sings.  :)  Okay but he does really well!
Here I'm Home is one of the few songs Carl has out right now as he's still in the early stages of his career.  I love the idea behind the song and the lyrics really drive it home.  (Get it?  Home?  Haha.  Okay, yeah it was bad.)  ANYWAY. 
Here I'm Home talks about that bittersweet in-between place we all find ourselves in at least once in our lives.  I'm going to argue it happens more than once to the majority of humans but we'll go with once for now.  That in-between place is where you ask and explore the answers to questions like:
Who am I?
What am I meant to do?
Where am I headed? 
What will happen in my life? 
Etc, Etc. 
And as you figure these things out there's always a place you reside in (physical OR mental/emotional) and that place is always "home" for that time. 

Here I'm Home

  1. Jeff Carl is definitely in my head an up and coming artist. He has all of the things it takes to make it. Plus he has an awesome song about Lynch-Vegas I mean Lynchburg aka my old stompin grounds! Glad you listened/watched the video and liked it! I don't steer people wrong when it comes to music and food!

#TransformationTuesday

Today I want to celebrate transformation - the work we have each put in day after day, month after month, year after year to become not who we were. Let me say this - there is no shame in who we were because that was the hurt us - the baggage laden us - the angry us. And we've done the work so let's celebrate who we aren't and who we now are!  The song above is all about being transformed - from the choices to let go of pain and find healing. It inspired something called cardboard testimonies which I personally love. A way to share your story in one or two sentences/phrases. I don't know about you but I love not being who I was. I still have work to do but I love looking back and seeing the transformation I've gone through thus far. 




Here's some inspiration - yes, a lot of it is faith based (okay maybe all of it) but if you don't subscribe to a faith that's okay! You still have a cardboard testimony. 








#FRIENDSFriday

So in case *you* didn't know...I have a wee obsession with the TV show Friends. Nothing that requires an intervention...well at least I don't think so. *wink*

Today's #FRIENDSFriday is all about how well do you, or I, know the show? It's time for a little Friends Trivia!


And in keeping with the trivia focus today here's a clip of one of my most favorite episodes of Friends that features one of the best games of trivia ever!

#SentimentalSunday

sen·ti·men·tal
/ˌsen(t)əˈmen(t)l/
adjective
of or prompted by feelings of tenderness, sadness, or nostalgia.



Watching my brothers become Uncles - thanks to my oldest redhead - has been one of the best things in my life. It was through their interactions with her from the moment she was born until present day that made me see the men they were growing up to be and what kind of Father's they would be to their own children someday. It takes nothing at all for me to think back to those days when she was an itty-bitty and my brothers - who had no experience with babies - took on soothing her when she cried, changing her diapers, helping feed her, and just snuggling. Mushy gushy heart.

What makes you sentimental today?
