For Monday, August 29: Hold Me Together

This is Royal Tailor's second appearance on the experiment.  Pretty good considering they are brand spanking new on the music scene.  I featured their other popular song "Make a Move" earlier this summer. 
I actually heard today's song first.  It played on the radio as I traveled home from work one night and I thought, "That is a great song!"  If you know me well then you know why I thought so...the lyrics, of course!!  :)
If you want the background on Royal Tailor then click here and pop over to my previous entry about them. 
"Hold Me Together" is that cry to God that we sometimes hear ourselves saying out loud.  C'mon.  You know there are days that you need someone or something to hold you together because you are just at the end.  Like today was for me.  By 7:30 am my day had gone to hell in a hand basket and I was so over the day!  Problem was it was just getting started!  I definitely needed some holding together by Mercy.  I was wondering if God's love really could and would redeem the day from hell.  :)  Okay.  I'm being a little dramatic because the reality is that I DO know that God's love was so in my day (although I admit I don't really see how but that's okay - just because you don't or can't see evidence of God's love doesn't mean it is absent or doesn't exist).  But still, it was a rough day and really the only "thing" holding me together was God.  Have you ever had a day or even life season like that?  Where you just were hoping that God and all he is was going to hold you together because you knew you weren't successful?  Here's the thing.  God can and will hold you together.  He trumps anything other kind of "glue" you might try!

Are things happening to you or are you making things happen?  The difference between the two has to do with belief in self and the willingness to simply ask or take a step forward. 
Today's #MakeItHappenMonday thoughts come straight from this article I ran across. 

I'm not good at making things happen, I am lazy - fearful - insecure and just wait for things to happen to me. Not ideal I know. In fact, if I want to live a life that just happens and invites me to participate every so often then my attitude is perfect! But when I hear myself complain about things happening to me then it's not so perfect after all is it?

You've probably said it before, and I'm sure you've had it said to you, "it doesn't hurt to ask." That's true if you are a person who makes things happen. But if you are a person - like me - who waits for things to happen then the asking seems out of line or fear inducing or something uncomfortable.

So what kind of person are you?…

Look Alike Day (or Doppelganger)
Do you have a look alike?  Do you want to look like someone else?
When I was in High School and had hair down to my waist my classmates thought I looked like these two actresses:

Sometimes wanting to be a look alike gets to be creepy and obsessive...
Yes, these are REAL (sort of) people. They have both gone through multiple surgeries in their quest to look like Ken and Barbie, both in looks and in body shape.  Disturbing is an understatement.

Here is an attempt at being a Justin Bieber look alike.  I say it has been an epic fail but it's still disturbing.

It's fine if you happen to look similar to someone known or else but to spend gross amounts of money to attempt to look like someone?  You may need some professional counseling.  I'm just sayin'.

I get accused of being stupid with some of the things I do. For example, one time I assembled these superhero packets...for adults. I put in a color-your-own mask, a power cuff (fine it was a bracelet but go with it), some motivating thoughts about what it takes to be a superhero, and a way to devise their own superhero name. I made the packets colorful and superhero-ish. I included a note about why they were getting the packet (hint - because they matter and they are superheroes). There were grumblings over how stupid I was to make the packets and hand them out. The thing is, I didn't just hand them out for the mere sake of being silly (although I don't think there is anything wrong with that) but I did it because I had a message I wanted the people to receive. A message I knew most of them needed to hear. I had a reason, I always have a reason.
Don't be shy about being thoughtful - even if you think it might come off as stupid. Just be thoughtful in some way, you won…
