Weekend Feels!

How are you feeling? How has your week been? And WHAT are you planning for the weekend?

I started my weekend early after feeling pretty crummy on and off yesterday. I’m trying to fight off a cold that keeps trying to creep up on me. It’s like sending off an unwanted admirer, “I’m really flattered by the attention, no really, but I just don’t have time for this. Maybe another time. Another place. Maybe if we were different people. Neither of them being me.

Not that I have much experience in that realm. But that is how I feel about this sore throat, which reminds me I need to drink water.

*Cue water break for you, Dear Reader*

This weekend, which I have already given myself a huge headstart on, involves activities that never fail to make me feel better, like scoping out new crystals; painting my nails; checking out the markets; watching Youtube videos; having LOTS of coffees; Yoga-ing; long walks; visiting a loved one; maybe watching a movie at the movies and discovering new not so new but new to me music.

Like this one down below. I just heard it, whilst watching a Youtube video whilst I was painting my nails. Just listening to it and I can feel the good vibes taking over from the sore throat feels.

That’s sound therapy right there.

 

 

Eh? What do you reckon? Feeling the happy?

What have you got planned for the weekend? Tell me! I’d love to know! And can we all agree that Youtube videos are oddly addictive? And that one can never have enough crystals?!

This Song goes out to You.

In anticipation of tonight’s Mardi Gras parade and finding out what the anthem will be this year, here is an anthem of another sort that I adore. 

 Ego. With a capital E.

To my Ego, my Pride and my Hubris. I hope you like this song. I release you happily. Thanks for everything, you can go now, and take my Fear with you.

Without you, I am free now to create.

(Note: This used to be a link to an awesome remix on Soundcloud, but since then that link has changed. Until I find it again here is the original version which is still awesome.)

My favourite lines:

I held you in high regard, you were an answer from God.

Not anymore.

When I used to love youuuuuuuuuuuu. There was nothing that I wouldn’t do.

You’re all take and no give as the expression goes.

But I’m tired of living this life. It’s getting harder to justify. I realise I just don’t love youuuuuuuuuuuuuu. Not like I used to.

The numbers just don’t quite add up.

I can’t afford you.

You’re just in the way. You don’t help me, you harm me. What’s the value of holding onto you and putting you first? Zero. Nil. Nada.

The most upbeat breakup anthem I ever loved. And shouldn’t these type of tunes always be anthems? We’re picking freedom from a toxic love, and that’s no kind of love at all.

LYRICS:

Maybe, it’s me, maybe i bore you
No no, it’s my fault, cause i can’t afford u
Maybe baby, Puffy, Jay z
Would all be better for you
Cause all I can do is love you

Baby when I used to love you
(There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do)
I went through the fire for you,
Did anything you asked me to
But I’m tired of living this lie
It’s getting harder to justify
I realized that I just don’t love you
Not like I used to

HaLa ala la
HAla ala la

Maybe, I should rob somebody
So we could, live like Whitney and Bobby
It’s probably my fault, my bad, my loss
But you are, above cost
Cause all I could do was love you

Baby when I used to love you,
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
I went through the fire for you,
Did anything you asked me to.
But I’m tired of living this lie.
It’s getting harder to justify,
I realized that I just don’t love you
Not like I used to.

Hala hala hala
Hala hola hola

Do you remember when I used to love you (I used to love you)
Baby no, not any more, love you (but I don’t love you)
Ooohhhh, I love you (I used to love you)
And you’re gonna miss me now

Baby when I used to love you
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do,
I went through the fire for you,
But I’m not gonna play the fool
No I can’t live this lie, and I can’t justify,
And I can’t make up my life
Cause I don’t love you
Not like I used to do
Not like I used to do
Not like I used to do

Hola holla holla
Holla holla holla

(I used to love you)
(I used to love you)
(I used to love you)

I bet you miss me now
Cause I don’t love you

When I let go and release what is no longer serving me, I make space for something better. Choose Love. What’s your fave anthem? And what are you releasing?
