Repeat, Replay


Do you ever feel that you are stuck on replay?

Do you ever do the very things that you tell yourself you want to change or never do again but then turn around and do the same darned thing?  Does someone in your life keep telling you things will change only to repeat the same pattern over and over?

I think we all have loops in our lives.  I also think that it’s important to break free from them.

When I listen to music I play my new favorite song over and over, to the dismay of all those around me!  But this is not the kind of loop I want to break free from.  Everyone can block their ears if they don’t like it!  Pretty easy solution don’t you think?

Not all loops and repeats in our lives are as easily solved as this.

I don’t begin to pretend I know how to accomplish this but what I do know is that it’s important to be aware of the areas that we are stuck on repeat and attempt break free from them. Identifying that they exist is key.

 Who would want to be stuck on replay everyday, or week, or month or year?  I don’t think any of us would. 

Forward thinking.  Not hula hoop thinking.

Challenge yourself.

Change yourself.

Get out of your comfort zone and stop living life on repeat.

Put down the hula hoop.

Mean what you say and say what you mean.

Excuse me while I go and hit replay again on my iPod.

Now for a poem.








Same words everyday,

Stated in a different way.

Upon the sunrise

I want to sing,

Then I see your eyes


They are clouded,

Cloaked in empty promises

Memories of a forgotten time


Even the buds are withered

Not yet full grown,


Plucked and thrown

Potential unknown





Same words every day



What are you listening to on repeat lately? (Literally or figuratively)
Let me know. Email or comment box.

My top 2 as of late:

 Icona Pop – I love it


Phillip Phillips – Home




And so it begins…

So, today I decided to start a Blog, not unlike it seems, the entire free world. 

After searching the internet far and wide, researching for tips from the pro’s on how to set up a Blog, how to successfully write a Blog, how often to write in your Blog, I discovered one major theme across them all.  Have a specific direction or idea.  Have a topic or a purpose. 

They say don’t write about your love of birds, write about a specific bird but you see, I don’t have a bird, most definitely not a specific bird.  I know a little but not a lot about all of the animal kingdom and I also find all of it equally fascinating and worth expressing thoughts and opinions about. 

So let’s get to specifics, boiling it down to a theme, this was a problem.  Yes, I say was because I found the common theme, my bird, my love of writing. 

Where to begin?  What to do with this passion of mine for writing?  I want to share my current directionless journey, right from the beginning, through a Blog on how I attempt to share my thoughts and ideas with the world through writing. 

So I will Blog about my journey towards becoming a published, read author/writer/blogger, while sharing my self, my musings, thoughts, books and papers with you along the way. 

Hopefully together we can walk away from this journey enlightened and successful or in the very least, better acquainted.
