Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)

I Hope I'll Be The Overcomer - 4Ms #Music

Because right now I just feel weak and weary in my spirit. I didn't feel that way earlier today, so I'm sure it's a passing thing. After all, it's just an emotion and those do pass right.

I just wish the other problems in my life were passing, just like an emotion.  Oh well. What doesn't break you, will give you foundation right?

Take nothing for granted ya'll and when you remember again, take nothing for granted.

And if all else fails, just laugh your ass off. Like today, I spent laughing so hard I cried. Now I'm crying with a broken heart and so it balances it all out :)

Welcome to today's music.  I hope Monday find you with a smile and music to begin your week with light steps.

  1. I like Mandisa. Balance is a nice thing. Hope you are well. Happy Monday.


  2. I love Mandisa. Her songs are so uplifting. I hope you see a light at the end of the tunnel for whatever you're going through. (((HUGS)))

    1. Thanks Denise.
      I will keep a flicker of hope for not losing my mind and standing strong.

  3. Mandisa is new to me, but I think I'm now hooked on her if this upbeat, uplifting tune is an indicator of her musical style. Unfortunately many of life's adversities aren't so quick to pass, but your attitude can make those difficulties easier to bear. One thing that makes me strong is the thought that God never gives us more than we can shoulder. He knows our limits. God bless you!

    1. I struggle sometimes with my faith, but I keep holding to it Cathy. Afterall, Heaven isn't here on earth :) And he does promise to take care of us.

      And you'll LOVE Mandisa!

  4. I like to hear that you were laughing, but not the crying. :(

  5. I love the 4M's but I haven't gotten in the past few. Thanks for sharing your song. I wish and pray there comes an uplifting for you. I've been in those places before, too. You're an inspiring soul.

    1. Thank you Lynn.
      As long as my mind doesn't snap on it's own. I'll hold strong.

  6. Wow! She sure lost a lot of weight and looks great! After my surgery that's what I'm going to do is to get serious about shedding my pounds cuz I'll be able to exercise it off Woo Hoo!!! I can't wait to get my life back. And speaking of which... girlfriend why do you tease everyone and only tell us half the story! You know we care, so just remember you are loved, and we do care! E-mail me and tell me what's going on. I don't like hearing your heart is breaking! Not cool! HUGS!!!

    1. Here's to good health for you Dolly.
      Thank you.

  7. I felt a little down on Saturday and that carried a bit over to Sunday. The hubby and I watched to tearjerker movies that just had us crying like babies. Loved the music, and do have a wonderful and cheerful day!

    1. I hope you are much more spirited now Danielle! And it's good to have things to share with your love.

  10. I love this quote from Dolly Parton: If you want the rainbow, you have to put up with the rain.
    I thought is was so simple, yet so profound.
    but the promise is always there!!
    great song.

    1. That is so true! Or visit a waterfall and wait for the sun to come out :)

      Thank you Rory :)

  11. Uplifting song. Sometimes we just have to laugh instead of cry.
