Words..Soothing to my soul

I was sitting here thinking of what I wanted to share with you. Remembering Diva Whitney Houston gave me some inspiration. I say yeah I think I'm happy, but there's one thing that definitely brings me happiness---lyrics/poetry/words.
We dismiss a lot of songs because of the genre. Try just concentrating on the words. They're powerful. Beautiful. So here is a small sample of lyrics that inspire me, make me happy, uplift me, keep me focused on my dreams and goals. Please share some of your favorite lyrics.

From I Look to You~~Whitney Houston
I look to you
After all my strength is gone
In you I can be strong
I look to you,
I look to you 
And when melodies are gone In you I hear a song
I look to you

'bout to lose my breath
There's no more fighting left
Sinking to rise no more
Searching for that open door

And every road that I've taken
Led to my regret
And I don't know if I'm go'n make it
Nothing to do but lift my head



From Settlin'~~ Sugarland
I ain't settling for just getting by
I've had enough so so for the rest of my life
Tired of shooting too low, so raise the bar high
Just enough ain't enough this time
I ain't settling for anything less than everything



From This Is My Now~~Jordin Sparks


There was a time I packed my dreams away
Living in a shell, hiding from myself

There was a time when I was so afraid
I thought I'd reached the end, baby that was then
But I am made of more than my yesterdays

This is my now and I am breathing in the moment
As I look around I can't believe the love I see
My fear's behind me, gone are the shadows and doubt
That was then, this is my now

I had to decide, was I gonna to play it safe?
Or look somewhere deep inside, try to turn the tide
And find the strength to take that step of faith?



From Amazing~~Kanye
I'm exhausted
Barely breathing
Holding on to what I believe in
No matter what
You'll never take that from me
My reign is as far as your eyes can see

It's amazing, so amazing, so amazing, so amazing, it's amazing

Just a touch away

Hi everyone! It's been a little while since my last post, but I promise you I've been busy. :-) I completed my first book! Yay! Thank God! I'm now waiting to receive my proof copy. Approve it and let the printing begin! It will be sold through my website politejourney.com and LuLu.  So check back for the official release date.

Now on to the topic that's been on my mind--touch.  I was reading an article in Good Housekeeping on the health benefits of touch. Has technology transformed touch into a rare occurrence? Are we so distant now because of social media and cell phones? Yes I am plugged in to the social media platforms such as the one I'm on now and others.  However, my true nature is to be hands-on.  I'm that person that may slap you on the arm when we're laughing. :-)

I'm blessed very blessed that I come from a family of "touchers." We greet and leave each other with hugs and kisses. My Mother will still hold our hand when she's talking to us. She's also known to spontaneously and gently rub our backs or our hair just because she loves us. And it's nice and calming and for that brief space in time, we're just her children--not parent, sibling, employee, husband, wife etc... Just happy to be right there feeling all that love!

Do me a favor please. For the next two days (more would be better), hug someone you love or someone that you think needs a hug. When watching TV or riding in the car with your spouse or significant other, reach over and hold his or her hand. Put touch back into your life...I'm sure it'll make someone happy! ;-)
