Life After You

Life After You

Daughtry

Ten miles from town
And I just broke down
Spitting out smoke on the side of the road
I’m out here alone
Just trying to get home
To tell you I was wrong, but you already know
Believe me, I won’t stop at nothing to see you
So I’ve started runningAll that I’m after is a life full of laughter
As long as I’m laughing with you
And I think that all that still matters is love ever after
After the life we’ve been through
‘Cause I know there’s no life after youLast time we talked
The night that I walked
Burns like an iron in the back
Of my mind
I must have been high
To say you and I weren’t meant to be
And just wasting my time
Oh why did I ever doubt you
You know I would die here without youAll that I’m after is a life full of laughter
As long as I’m laughing with you
And I think that all that still matters is love ever after
After the life we’ve been through
‘Cause I know there’s no life after youYou and I, right or wrong
There’s no other one
After this time spent alone
It’s hard to believe
That a man with sight could be so blind
Thinking about the better times
Must’ve been out of my mind
So I’m running back to tell youAll that I’m after is a life full of laughter
Without you God knows what I’d do
All that I’m after is a life full of laughter
As long as I’m laughing with youAnd I think that all that still matters is love ever after
After the life we’ve been through
I know there’s no life after you
No there’s no life after you
No there’s no life after you
No there’s no life after you
No there’s no life after you
No there’s no life after you
No there’s no life after you ya

There She Goes

There She Goes

There She Goes

Sixpence None The Richer

There she goes
There she goes again
Racing through my brain
And I just can’t contain
This feeling that remainsThere she goes
There she goes again
Pulsing through my veins
And I just can’t contain
This feeling that remainsThere she goes (There she goes again)
There she goes again (There she goes again)
Racing through my brain (There she goes)
And I just can’t contain
This feeling that remainsThere she goes
There she goes again
She calls my name
Pulls my train
No one else could heal my pain
And I just can’t contain
This feeling that remainsThere she goes (She calls my name)
There she goes again (She calls my name)
Chasing down my lane (She calls my name)
And I just can’t contain
This feeling that remainsThere she goes (There she goes again)
There she goes (There she goes again)
There she goes

12 Points to Ponder

Keep It Simple
  • Be Happy – No matter what, no matter where or when, choose to be happy. Take everything with humor in your heart, regardless of what it is.
  • Don’t Overthink Things – Sit down, think about a possible solution, and if you cannot come up with one in 10 minutes, then just act on the first best thing! Acting beats thinking nine out of ten times!
  • Act with your Mouth Shut – Instead of saying you’re sorry, exclaiming your resolutions to the heavens and proclaiming everything you want to do, just do it. Don’t tell the world what you will do, show it!
  • Give it Your All, Always – There is nothing you gain by living small. Either you give it 100% or you might as well not do it and change. Respect your time enough to give every moment everything you have.
  • Be Honest, especially with yourself – Lying serves no purpose other than getting you into a life of another person. Being honest sucks at times, sure, but it will always lead to a better life.
  • Choose your Path – This is your life and at the end it’s you who has to come to terms with how you lived. Don’t like what someone else is selling? Then don’t buy into it!
  • Show Massive Responsibility – You said you wanted to do something? Then do it! Words are meaningless unless they are followed by action. It’s your life, which makes it your responsibility. No one else liable for the way you live your life but you.
  • Be You – If you do not know what means, figure it out.
  • Drop the B.S. – You know what you are and are not doing. You know when you are lying to yourself, kidding yourself and not doing what you set out to do. Cut out all the crap and focus on what matters.
  • Never surrender on what truly matters to you – Whenever you do find something worth fighting for, fight for it with all you’ve got! Yes, you will fall. Yes, you will fail. Stand back up. The fight is only over when you stay on the ground.
  • Never stop improving – When you stop improving yourself you will fall below your potential and receive a life less than what you are capable of having. Work your hardest. Always.
  • Enjoy – You have one life, one chance, and one opportunity to make this life worth something, so make it count. Love your life, learn to enjoy yourself, laugh heartily, and, most importantly, make the mark you want to make on the world. Whether or not you lived a life worth living at the end is up to you.

The Face That is etched on my heart

Keep It Simple

There are many days, that she is on my mind. I took a moment to pen draw her face, the way I can remember. The smile on her face in her eyes, the feeling of love and compassion. Always caring, always giving. This person has made an impression on me that will never go away. This face, it forever etched on my heart, a heart that aches, that is sad, that is broken, that has turned to ashes. Waiting for my Creator to bring healing. The self doubt, the self anger, the frustration of making a bad choice. The consequences of that choice. It brings me to a place of questioning all that is done, in my mind and in my actions. To say that she is missed, dearly, well, that is an understatement.

It is my hope and prayer that God continues to bring healing and restoration. The statement is true, Forever etched on my heart. You have imprinted on me. 🙂

In Search of Tranquility

In search of tranquility
More than silence
More than peace
Soul and senses
Be still and calm
Storms and waves
Be still
Be calm
One focus
But be seen in anywhere
Everywhere, anywhere, no where
Still one focus
In YOU
Flower blossoms and withers
Summer breeze and winter chill
Golden leaves
Green mountain
Ever-changing
Stability and balance
Tranquility in mobility
In search of YOU
Tranquility in YOU

Something Just Like This – The Chainsmokers & Coldplay

Something Just Like This

Coldplay, The Chainsmokers

I’ve been reading books of old
The legends and the myths
Achilles and his gold
Hercules and his gifts
Spiderman’s control
And Batman with his fists
And clearly I don’t see myself upon that list

But she said, where’d you wanna go?
How much you wanna risk?
I’m not looking for somebody
With some superhuman gifts
Some superhero
Some fairytale bliss
Just something I can turn to
Somebody I can kiss

I want something just like this
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Oh, I want something just like this
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Oh, I want something just like this

I want something just like this

I’ve been reading books of old
The legends and the myths
The testaments they told
The moon and its eclipse
And Superman unrolls
A suit before he lifts
But I’m not the kind of person that it fits

She said, where’d you wanna go?
How much you wanna risk?
I’m not looking for somebody
With some superhuman gifts
Some superhero
Some fairytale bliss
Just something I can turn to
Somebody I can miss

I want something just like this
I want something just like this

I want something just like this
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Oh, I want something just like this
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo

Where’d you wanna go?
How much you wanna risk?
I’m not looking for somebody
With some superhuman gifts
Some superhero
Some fairytale bliss
Just something I can turn to
Somebody I can kiss
I want something just like thisOh,

I want something just like this
Oh, I want something just like this

You Are The Reason – by Calum Scott

You are the Resaon:

You Are The Reason

Leona Lewis

There goes my heart beating
‘Cause you are the reason
I’m losing my sleep
Please come back now

There goes my mind racing
And you are the reason
That I’m still breathing
I’m hopeless now

I’d climb every mountain
And swim every ocean
Just to be with you
And fix what I’ve broken
Oh, ’cause I need you to see
That you are the reason

There goes my hands shaking
And you are the reason
My heart keeps bleeding
I need you now, oh

If I could turn back the clock
I’d make sure the light defeated the dark
I’d spend every hour, of every day oh
Keeping you safe

I’d climb every mountain
And swim every ocean
Just to be with you
And fix what I’ve broken
Oh, ’cause I need you to see
That you are the reason

I don’t wanna fight no more
I don’t wanna hide no more (you are)

It is Now Official

I no longer work at an auto dealership, as a new opportunity has come my way, one that could not be turned down.

Keep It Simple

Yes, made it back into the awesome world of Aviation. Working for a Private Jet Brokerage House, based in Florida. However, have the opportunity to work from my home office in Oregon. All that is needed is a work cell phone, my computer, and a printer, and boom, back in business.

The Company that picked me up is called Stratos Jet Charter, Inc. I have know the owner for many years, and our paths have crossed many times. Yes, very excited time indeed.

More to come on this new adventure.
