Staying Positive

I am on a blogging spree today apparently!!!! But I wanted to share this with you all. I have been a positive person for the most part, yes I have my days just like anyone and everyone else does but, for the most part I stay positive. 


I have a way of thinking that someone else is always worse off than I am so why not be thankful and grateful for the things that I have. It might not necessarily be everything that I "want" but I have always had everything that I need thank goodness for that!!


So I wanted to share a few quotes that I came across with you all. I especially like the one about the Bad attitude! Reminds me of someone that seems to think that every little TINY little thing is just horrible!!  Okay I get that not everything is perfect, nothing is BUT looking at things in a good positive way is going to do more good to you than thinking and acting on just the bad things! Bad things are only temporary, remember that!

Celebrity news this Friday



I haven't heard of or watched the show until today. I saw this on Extra, actually a tweet that Extra did and thought it looked like a fun show. Here's the link to watch JLo to see what different things that they are dishing about today.



Have I mentioned that I love Extra, especially since Mario Lopez is on there!! I've LOVED him since I saw him years ago! Loved Saved by the Bell, wish that they would do a reunion or something, thinking that would be cool.



I also saw a tweet earlier today where Kelly Clarkson, who just had her precious baby girl a week ago, shared a picture of her on twitter :) She is tiny and beautiful!! River Rose Not sure of that name but its cute, they like it and that's all that matters!



Laura Prepon brushes off the rumors of her and Tom Cruise dating. Read about it here Good grief I hope that she doesn't date him. I like him acting in some of his movies, but, I don't know, I just don't think that he comes off as a good person to be dating. Love the series that she is in, Orange is the New Black, the Netflix series! I watched BOTH seasons in a week! Quite addicting if I do say so myself!!

If you haven't seen the series on Netflix,  Orange is the new Black, watch the previews and see what you think. I loved it from the first episode and the more it went on the more I wanted to watch it more and more! It's a Netflix series so if you are on netflix, look it up, probably on the front page!

Have a great weekend!!

Release - 5 Minute Friday


This is my first 5 minute Friday

When i see the word release I think of letting someone go. Recently, I have had to do that. He's been my best friend for over 25 years and he just also happens to be my one and only first and only true love! He knows this, knew this from the beginning and I've made it clear he's the only one I love unconditionally. Life lets us take twists and turns and some of them we don't understand and probably won't ever understand. During the twists and turns we have never been out of contact even though he went his way and had a family and I went mine and had a family we were always in touch with each other.

Within the last 2 years things have dramatically changed for each of us. So we in a since found our way back to each other. However, this year has been really an emotional roller coaster for me. He's pulling back as a best friend and I just don't understand it. But I have chosen to release him somewhat from my life to give him his time and space or whatever he needs to figure out what he needs too etc. After 25 years of always being there for each other through thick and thin and remaining the very best of friends even when we didn't see each other for years, its hard to release. I have tried my best too but as I said its an emotional roller coaster for sure. He will always remain in my heart and mind as my best friend and love but a part of me, my head is saying release him completely but my heart is saying no he will come back one day.

That is what the word release reminded me of today....

Not a Bad Thing - song

I have been a Justin Timberlake fan for awhile. When I first listened to this song, its just one of those songs that you instantly find yourself feeling the love and passion in it!

I am a HUGE music fan!! Can't do anything usually without music going, usually one of my many Spotify playlist going.



This song reminds me of my first and only true love!! Love him with all my heart, yet things sometimes just don't work out the way you want them too but, as the saying goes, if its meant to be then it will be. Something like that! I hope that one my best friends who is my true and only love will find whatever it is that he's looking for or take the time out for himself and realize what it is that he is missing and wanting and come back.....He's still around just very distant at the moment and it just hurts knowing that we've been through so much in 25+ years and now to see him be distant, that's a first for me and I'm finding it hard to deal with sometimes...anyway songs like this keep my hopes up that he will come back around one day when he's ready...My forever first and true love B.

RIP Casey Kasem



One of my absolute FAVORITE cartoons has always been Scooby-Doo. I just fell in love with it and have always watched it and my kids as well love it, well they did when they were younger and watched it. Through out all these years, I never realized that Casey Kasem is the one that was Shaggy!!



I can't believe that I didn't know that but I didn't not until people talked about him missing Shaggy after he passed. I was like what? What does he have to do with Shaggy on Scooby-Doo? And then I read and was told he was Shaggy! Wow.

He will be dearly missed and loved always!! I listened to him every week on the top 40. LOVE him always!

#MAPS by Maroon 5 - new single that came out today!!

I am a total and absolute LOYAL fan of Adam Levine aka Maroon 5



I saw the tweet that Adam did just a few minutes ago about the new single called MAPS and of course I had to listen to it. First time I listened to it and LOVED it!!!

It's on Spotify - its called Maps

Here are the lyrics to it:

I miss taste of the sweet life
I miss the conversation
I’m searching for a song tonight
I’m changing all of the stations
I like to think that, we had it all
We drew a map to a better place
But on that road I took a fall
Oh baby why did you run away?

I was there for you
In your darkest times
I was there for you
In your darkest nights

But I wonder where were you
When I was at my worst
Down on my knees
And you said you had my back
So I wonder where were you
All the roads you took came back to me
So I’m following the map that leads to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following


This SO fits something that was/is going on in my life right now with one of my best friends of OVER 25 years!!

Anyway I would highly suggest listening to it, I fell in love with it!!
