Every Little Thing

"Do not sabotage your new relationship with your last relationships poison" ~ Steve Maraboli

The high, the hurt, the shine, the sting of every little thing is what Nashville recording artist Carly Pearce sings about in her latest song.

The scent that you left on my pillow
The sound of your heart beating with mine
The look in your eyes like a window 
The taste of your kiss soaked in wine 

Every little thing
I remember every little thing
The high, the hurt, the shine, the sting
Of every little thing

Carly's latest single Every Little Thing  is a song about being heartbroken.  It is a haunting ballad about the emotional memories from a relationship gone wrong.  As humans we can't tell our heart when we are over someone. Emotional triggers surround us and we can't turn off our emotions. We don't really have control over when these triggers will hit us.  The ghosts of the relationship can catch up with us and haunt us in unsuspecting moments.  

Guess you forgot what you told me
Because you left my heart on the floor
Baby, your ghost still haunts me 

But I don't want to sleep with him no more 

 

It is challenging and very difficult to move ourselves forward into new space after being heartbroken.  The thing to remember is living in the past blocks our joy.  Moving Forward with intention and purpose is important in finding joy again. True joy can only be experienced in the present moment. Live in the moment!. 

Every little thing
I remember every little thing
The high, the hurt, the shine, the sting
Of every little thing
I remember every little thing
The high, the hurt, the shine, the sting
Of every little thing

 

Releasing the crippling memories of a past relationship is difficult.  These 5 steps can be helpful in the process. Empower yourself!  The most powerful tool you own is accepting that you have choices in all your relationships. Hear the story behind the song.

They say time is the only healer
God, I hope that isn't right 
Cause right now I'd die to not remember

Every little thing
I remember every little thing
The high, the hurt, the shine, the sting
Every little thing
I remember every little thing
I'm haunted by the memories of
Every little thing
The high, the hurt, the shine, the sting
Every little thing

 

 


Finding Peace this Christmas

December 20, 2016  •  4 Comments

 

Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, troubles or hard work, it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.

We're all looking for our own peace on earth.  In this season that finds us "making our lists and checking them twice" often times we get caught up in planning the perfect Christmas gathering, purchasing just the right gift and making sure we take in all the holiday gatherings we are invited to.  It is important to take time to breathe and give ourselves permission to be still and enjoy the simple moments.  In the hustle and bustle of the season we can find ourselves trying to plan the perfect holiday celebration when in reality the perfect holiday moments create themselves.  If we will simply take time to appreciate and enjoy the people, places and circumstances that surround us, we will find our Christmas joy.  Country Music duo Cloverdayle encourage us to believe like a child again.

We're all looking for love

We're all looking for our own peace on earth

We're all looking for something or someone to make it better

We're all trying to find a little hope in this hopeless world

We're all chasing the time and losing sight of what really matters

Just keep holding on...

'Cause when the winter wind is bringing in those cold December nights

You'll be believing like a child again, at least for a little while

Dreaming, feeling the season in your heart

When Christmas lights the dark

Looking for ideas to make the Christmas holiday less stressful?  Plan ahead, set limits for yourself regarding social events and spending.  Too late for that?  There's always next year, if you can't make something happen this year start planning now for next Christmas.  Drop the guilt, you can't do it all.  Forget about trying to create the perfect version of Christmas.  Stop wondering and worrying about what others are doing or buying for Christmas.  This Christmas season make an intention to focus on the relationships that are important to you.  Embrace today's moments and remember there will be future opportunities to celebrate.  Be present in the moment you are in right now.  Make time for what matters.  Enjoy the magic and wonder of the Christmas season. Spend your days making the most of your time with family and friends.

What if we make it last

What if we don't let go of it

What if we live and laugh and love

Like Christmas never goes away

We can just hold on...

'Cause when the winter wind is bringing in those cold December nights

You'll be believing like a child again, at least for a little while

Dreaming, feeling the season in your heart

When Christmas lights the dark

This Christmas let's laugh, love, dream and believe like a child again.  Let's feel the season of peace in our hearts this Christmas season and into the New Year.  Listen to country music artists Cloverdayle perform When Christmas Lights the Dark.  You can check out their music here.

 

Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is rather than as you think it should be ~ Wayne Dyer

Cloverdayle ~ "When Christmas Lights the Dark"
 
 

"And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts.  For as members of one body you are called to live in peace.  And always be thankful."  Colossians 3:15

May the Spirit of Christmas be found in a peaceful heart this season.  Merry Christmas!
