Music Mondays: Francesca Battistelli

francesca-battistelli_if-were-honestYesterday, I heard this song for the first time and I instantly fell in love with the lyrics of this song. The funny thing is that the message of this song has been on my heart lately. It’s weird you know because when I’ve been feeling defeated, lonely,sad, well emotional the little voice of reason in my head would always say Felice take your problems to The Lord because remember no fear, no issue is too big for him to handle. Take it easy and put all your trust in The Lord. When I listened to Francesca’s album last night and Find Rest came on I swear at that moment God was speaking to me through this song. Its so funny you know God always sends you some type of sign when you start feeling really emotional. Listening to this song has brought me so much comfort and joy. Today this song will be my Music Monday. I feel like I need to start off this week on a positive and uplifting note. I hope you guys listen to this song and it ministers to you like it did to me. xx

Seize The Day,Follow Your Dreams

I’ve always wanted to do something in my life that involved music but never really had the means of doing it because of certain forces working against me. I’ve always loved singing, writing songs and just listening to music. It has always been a dream of mine to just learn more about the craft, so recently I decided that I want to learn how to play the piano. When I was younger, I use to actually take lessons but at the time I was young and just had so much on my mind that I never really took it seriously and I regret it. I’m a 22yrs old and I am just learning how to play the piano. I am at a place in my life where I want to get the most out of life. I want to experience all the good and creative things life has to offer. I made a promise to myself that this year instead of wasting my money on stupid things I would invest in me. I would invest it new learning opportunities. I also made a promise to myself that this year I would do something different and do something I like. Life goes by so fast and you never know what opportunities you are missing because either you’re asleep or you’re just living your life day to day doing the same things. I am a firm believer in stepping outside the line and going after the things that frighten you. You are never to old to try to accomplish all your dreams and aspirations in life. God gave us a long and prosperous life. It is up to us to go out and do the things in life we love the most. I think of myself as learner. I see myself as someone who is always striving to do more things to elevate me and the people around me. I admit sometimes I could be lazy and just simply not in the mood but after a while that gets boring and old. I am excited to start learning how to the piano and I can’t wait to see where this leads me to. I think the piano is such a beautiful instrument and I can’t wait to start sharing on my blog the the pieces of music I will be learning. I can’t wait. My advice to anyone who is struggling with making decisions on if they should pursue a lifelong dream of theirs, is that you should do it. If you have the support and the extra money on hand, instead of spending it on stupid things go out and invest in you and your future. We weren’t placed on this earth to just live our life following our boring daily routines. Mix it up a bit and just find your thing, find that thing that completes you and makes you happy. No dream is ever stupid, so just listen to what’s in your heart and live your life. Life is fun don’t waste it.

December 17: Forgiveness

Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 12.21.07 AMOne of the best traits you can have today is being a forgiving person. If you can still have an open heart and forgive those who have wronged that defines character. Forgiving an individual is the hardest thing to do. Never let that anger or malice you may have towards someone harden your heart. Love each other no matter you. However when forgiving someone be sure to never forget what they did. When I say don’t forget, I don’t mean to hold it against them but rather use that particular situation as a learning experience. Use it a tool to steer you when dealing with people like that. Use the bad situation to inspire good outcomes. Forgiveness is love.
