Words To Live By

I swear, someone is watching over me. Now I just need to listen. 

This goes to family, friends and anyone in my life. 

Happy Birthday, Bradley James Keesler

Today is my nephew, Bradley James Keesler’s birthday. He turns 29 years old today.

From the very moment that my sister, Cynthia told me she was pregnant, I have loved this kid! Not a day goes by that I don’t count my blessings that I have this person in my life.

He has grown into a wonderful young man. I cannot wait to see what she does with the rest of his life. The sky is the limit on what he can do.

So I want to thank my sister and my brother-in-law for raising such a good person and to my niece who has been a part of his growing to be the man he has become.

I love you, Brad more than words can say. I know that you have special people watching over you and blessing you along your way.

Happy birthday and I love you.

Words to Live By

I have said and posted over and over again, that when something in going on in my life, that has my mind spinning and spinning, a quote or a saying magically appears for me to read. 

Well, it happened again this weekend.

I’m fine during the week, when I have other things to distract Me. But on the weekends, ¡Aye, dios mio!, I just start thinking about things and I feel out of control. 

So when I saw this, I thought to myself, I need to live by some of these and remember them when I’m feeling out of control. 

I’m praying that #4, #7 and #12 come my way soon. 

Song Played Over and Over

Do you ever get in those moods to listen to a song over and over again?

Well, the other day at work, I was in that kind of mood. I must of played it over 25 times.

The song that I kept playing over and over was, “Love Never Felt So Good” by Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake.

 

 

The song, reworked from a 1983 demo track originally composed by Jackson and Canadian singer-songwriter Paul Anka, was the first single released from Jackson’s second posthumous album, Xscape. Two versions of the single were developed. The first was a solo produced by American record producer John McClain and Dutch record producer Giorgio Tuinfort. The second version was a duet featuring American singer Justin Timberlake, produced by American record producers Timbaland and Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon, which received positive reviews from music critics. Its accompanying music video premiered on May 14, 2014 on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. In it, Timberlake appears with a crowd of young dancers, who reference Jackson’s most known dance moves, interspersed with archival footage of the late pop singer’s many short films. The song is the second collaboration between Jackson and Anka to be released since Jackson’s death in 2009 — the first being “This Is It“. (From Wikipedia.com)

Yes, that Paul Anka, who knew?

In case you want to sing to the song like I did all day. Here you go.

“Love Never Felt So Good”

Baby, love never felt so good
And I doubt if it ever could
Not like you hold me, hold me
Oh baby, love never felt so fine
And I doubt if it’s never mine
Not like you hold me, hold me
And the night is gonna be just fine
Gotta fly, gotta see, can’t believe
I can’t take it

‘Cause baby, every time I love you
It’s in and out of my life, in out baby
Tell me, if you really love me
It’s in and out of my life, in out baby
‘Cause baby, love never felt so good

Baby, love never felt so fine
And I’d doubt if it was ever mine
Not like you hold me, hold me
Oh baby, love never felt so good
And I doubt if it ever could
Not like you hold me, hold me
And the night is gonna be just fine
Gotta fly, gotta see, can’t believe
I can’t take it cause

Baby, every time I love you
In and out of my life, in out baby
Tell me, if you really love me
It’s in and out of my life, driving me crazy
Baby, love never felt so good

Baby, love never felt so fine
And I’d doubt it was mine all mine
Not like you hold me, hold me
Oh baby, love never felt so good
And I doubt if it ever could
Not like you hold me, hold me
And the night is gonna be just fine
Gotta fly, gotta see, can’t believe
I can’t take it cause

Baby, every time I love you
In and out of my life, in out baby
Tell me, if you really love me
It’s in and out of my life, driving me crazy
Baby, love never felt so good

Steve Jobs


The last words of Steve Jobs – I have come to the pinnacle of success in business.

In the eyes of others, my life has been the symbol of success.

However, apart from work, I have little joy. Finally, my wealth is simply a fact to which I am accustomed.

At this time, lying on the hospital bed and remembering all my life, I realize that all the accolades and riches of which I was once so proud, have become insignificant with my imminent death.

In the dark, when I look at green lights, of the equipment for artificial respiration and feel the buzz of their mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of my approaching death looming over me.

Only now do I understand that once you accumulate enough money for the rest of your life, you have to pursue objectives that are not related to wealth.

It should be something more important:

For example, stories of love, art, dreams of my childhood.

No, stop pursuing wealth, it can only make a person into a twisted being, just like me.

God has made us one way, we can feel the love in the heart of each of us, and not illusions built by fame or money, like I made in my life, I cannot take them with me.

I can only take with me the memories that were strengthened by love.

This is the true wealth that will follow you; will accompany you, he will give strength and light to go ahead.

Love can travel thousands of miles and so life has no limits. Move to where you want to go. Strive to reach the goals you want to achieve. Everything is in your heart and in your hands.

What is the world’s most expensive bed? The hospital bed.

You, if you have money, you can hire someone to drive your car, but you cannot hire someone to take your illness that is killing you.

Material things lost can be found. But one thing you can never find when you lose: life.

Whatever stage of life where we are right now, at the end we will have to face the day when the curtain falls.

Please treasure your family love, love for your spouse, love for your friends…

Treat everyone well and stay friendly with your neighbours.

I think this is something that I need to read weekly, just to mind myself what I have and where in at.

Karma

This was a post be actor, Shemar Moore. 

“Lot of birdies chirping out there; the gossip is real,” he said in the video. “I hear it. I see it. I’m sure a lot of you do, too, so I’ll just say this: I believe in karma. Good things happen to good people. Honest people. Hard-working people. Humble people. People who believe in basic goodness. People who believe in themselves. People who believe in others. Good things will happen to you; it’s not always easy; but you gotta grind it out and you gotta believe in you. Treat people how you expect them to treat you. Celebrate yourself; celebrate your blessings — as you should. But just know that you’re not better than anybody. We all have our own gifts, so unwrap them bad boys and show ’em off. But then appreciate other people’s gifts. Church is over.”

I too, believe in Karma. I can only pray that one day this will happen.
