My #Mommitment music play list

Music is so important in my life it’s the reason I smile, my heart skips a beat, and my true passion in life. I grew up with music playing in my home constantly. From the melodic sounds of Elvis Presley, crooning of John Denver, rock and roll of Creedence Clearwater, and soft sounds of Charley Pride. I heard, learned, and sung it all. There is music that inspires me to write, sing, and create. There’s music that can lift up my spirit when it’s dragging on the floor from being sleep deprived at 2 am from a wide awake four year old. There’s music that kick starts my heart and body into action when I’m in full workout mode. And lastly music that makes me think screw all the haters as I dance around in my underwear like Tom Cruise in Risky Business  Old Time Rock and Roll style. Here’s a few of my personal favourites enjoy. ???
Bitch- Merdith Brooks
I have sung this loud and proud in my shower. Which everyone knows has the best acoustics next to a church. ?

What’s Up- Four Non Blondes
This song makes me think about the state of the world we’re living in. The judgement, tyranny, anarchy, and pain mixed in with the melting pot of beauty and emotions. ❤️

Zombie-The Cranberries
This song takes my heart to a place where I feel supported, loved, and understood. I had a friend who’s dogs would sing along with us when ever it was played. Rest in peace Stan and Gary. ?

Kick Start My Heart Motley Crüe
My all time favourite heavy metal band on the planet. And yes this song has kicked started my heart, energy, and pushed me to the extreme in my workouts. 

Don’t Stop-Fleetwood Mac
This is my theme song in life wherever I go, or wherever I am this song follows me. My heart, my love, my band is Fleetwood Mac. ??

This has been my contribution to the mixed tape #Momittment movement. I’m so happy and proud to be part of this beautiful ripple in the social media world. If you’d like to learn more about it check out Next life no kids and sign her petition. She rocks hard and so does her truth. ???


My future 

I cast my eyes forward watching and waiting with great anticipation.

What by chance do I see waiting and watching on the edge of the precipice?

Do I see hope on the horizon, faith in myself, or disaster looming ahead?

It all depends on my point of view how comfortable I feel in my skin. 

Thinking positively I see help, support, and advice. 

Thinking negatively will lead me to feeling exposed, vulnerable, and protective. 

Will I let down my barriers and allow goodness to pour forth?

Like wine, songs, and poetry enjoyed on a dark night with the moon looming above. 

I hope to conquer my fears and rise up to my challenges. 

Instead of cowering into the mysterious passages of my mind. 

Every soul carries a mystery and misery to their name and sometimes it’s revealed or hidden for all of time. 

I must learn that my heart is still intact even while the words spew forth, like a geyser emptying its contents from the earth. 

It is here where I sit, my mind contemplating, then upright and pacing my heart racing. 

This newness, this peacefulness, this soul’s rebirth. 

This is my attempt at a sonnet, for my Writing 201 Poetry. I pray that this poem won’t have Shakespeare rolling over in his grave with discontent. The prompt is future, the form is sonnet, and the device is chiasmus.

Lovely Lucy

I feel compelled to write, sing, and dance tonight. There is so much magnificent, magnetic energy in me that I feel so guided to share it. I’m tired, even sleep deprived, but I’m not even attempting to sleep because there’s a burning desire in me. I need to be read, heard, and understood. This deep urge to create something from nothing, anything into everything, and feel satisfaction will not be satiated. Last night I spent my night deep in grief, prayer, and song. My best friends Mom left the earth and I feel so shattered by her loss. And it feels like losing my Mom all over again…. I know with deep grief, there is deep love, so I embrace the feeling and allow it transform me. I listen to the quiet, still voice inside and let it be a source of healing. Lucy was like a Mom to me, since childhood I shared her with her daughter. What an incredibly sweet, kind lady. And the most hard working single parent I’ve ever known. She had a drive, ambition, and desire, to love with all her being and look after everyone at the same time. I remember when she’d come home after a long day at work, and her darling daughter would run her a bath and I’d get a bowl of water with epsom salts to soak her feet in. Not once did she complain, in all the years I’ve known her. At that time she only said I’m tired. Then she’d sit with us and have tea and a chat before bedtime. Even after she retired, sold her house and found an apartment she still worked hard. Cooking, baking, crafting, filling the hearts of her family and friends with her loving and caring ways. I watched as her health began to decline and she soon took up residency in the seniors facility. Still when I’d see her she’d have the biggest smile and and a friendly ear. My beloved Mom and lovely Lucy lived in the same facility and spent time together. And after my Mom passed on Lucy hugged me so tight, she told me I was never alone. ❤️ And I believed her as her daughter is my soul sister, and has always been a solid foundation in my life. Her family was there to heal my broken heart and pull me out of my pit of despair, when I lost my parents. And now I will return that act of love and sing for lovely Lucy while she’s laid to rest. I will sing for all the years she dedicated her life to her family. I will sing loud and proud for the amazing woman that God gave to the earth. I will sing for her beautiful children, Grand children, and Great Grandchildren, whom she felt immense love and pride for. And I will sing with a softness and gentleness as heaven welcomes another angel. ❤️
