Quotes and Sayings for the Week

Here are some quotes and sayings that seem to know what I’m going through now. 

Twenty Seconds

Benjamin Mee: “You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.

“We Bought a Zoo” Quotes

I was thinking of the quote the other day. 

I like to think of myself as a Lone Wolf who is not afraid to do anything. And usually I am. But recently, I am treading in uncharted territory for me.

If I just had “… twenty seconds of insane courage,” I want to ask five (5) questions to someone. 

Not 100% sure why I’m so scared to ask these questions? Maybe I don’t want to know the answers? Maybe I rather not know the truth, so I won’t get hurt?

But whatever it is, it has got me so confused sometimes, that I want to hide. Other times, I think I’m going to be brave and ask my questions, but the opportunity isn’t there. 

How come I have courage for somethings, but not this? I can find, read and posts all kinds of positive and motivation quotes to share with others. But for me? 

God, how I wish I had “… twenty seconds of insane ccourag… And I promise you, something great will come of it.”

Song of the Day

I’ve been listening to my iTunes more at work lately. One of the songs that I seem to like playing over and over again is, You Get What You Give” is a 1998 song by the New Radicals.


Not sure why I like this song so much? I’ve even watched the 

Here are the lyrics in case you want to sing it out loud in your car with the windows down… ah… yeah, I do that. 

You Get What You Give

(Chuh-chuh chah-chah-chah, Chuh-chuh chah-chah-chah.)
(Chuh-chuh chah-chah-chah, Chuh-chuh chah-chah-chah.)
One, one, one, one.
One, two, one, two, three! Ow!
Ah! Oh! Huh! Hey! Oh! Ho! Eh! Hey!

Wake up, kids
We’ve got the dreamer’s disease
Age fourteen
They got you down on your knees
So polite
You’re busy still saying please

Who when you’re down ain’t your friend
Ev’ry night
We smash a Mercedes-Benz (**)
First we run
And then we laugh till we cry

But when the night is falling
You cannot find the light (Light)
If you feel your dreams are dying
Hold tight

You’ve got the music in you
Don’t let go
You’ve got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don’t give up
You’ve got a reason to live
Can’t forget
We only get what we give

I’m coming home baby
You’re the tops
Give it to me now!

Four A.M. we ran a miracle mile
We’re flat broke but hey we do it in style
The bad rich
God’s flying in for your trial, ha-ha

But when the night is falling
You cannot find a friend (Friend)
You feel your tree is breaking
Just bend

You’ve got the music in you
Don’t let go
You’ve got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don’t give up
You’ve got a reason to live
Can’t forget
We only get what we give

This whole damn world can fall apart
You’ll be okay
Follow your heart
You’re in harm’s way
I’m right behind
Now say you’re mine

You’ve got the music in you
Don’t let go
You’ve got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don’t give up
You’ve got a reason to live
Can’t forget we only get what we give
Don’t let go
I feel the music in you, yo, hey, hey, ooh

Fly (Fly) high
What’s real can’t die
You only get what you give
You’re gonna get what you give
Don’t give up
Just don’t be afraid to live

Health insurance rip off lying
FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they’re multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson (**)
Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson
You’re all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We’ll kick your ass in! (*)

Don’t let go
One dance left
Ooh ooh ooh, don’t give up.
Ooh ooh ooh, can’t forget.
Ooh ooh ooh, don’t let go.

You Just Do It

Still trying to grasps the news I got Monday. I know that everything will be fine. But as much as I want to live the saying above, I would love to have someone tell me it’s going to be OK and I’m here for you. 

But until that happens, I’m going try my hardest to live by these words. 

Words I Need To Live By

What’s Next?

Well, yesterday, there were some things that I needed to take care, which I did. But along with taking care of those things other things popped up. 

One of the things that came up, I’m taking it in stride. I’m just going with the flow and get things done that need to be done. 

The other thing that came up, took me by surprise. I wasn’t expecting it, it just happened. Looking back, I think it has always been there but I didn’t see it. 

My eyes have been open a little bit and I’m taking baby steps. Since I tend to get a little carried away… sometimes. 

Looking forward to where this may lead me. 

This is also new territory for me. So that is why my question of the day, week, month, year is… What’s Next?
