All You Gotta Do Is Say Yes

23 05 2012

While listening to “Say Yes” by Floetry a thought hit me…my mind wanders in funny tangets sometimes towards clarity.

In the video the lady is writing about how the guy makes her feel and the man was drawing a picture of her.  Both in seperate seats, both thinking about each other.

The Chorus of the song goes:

“All you gotta do is say yes

Don’t deny what you feel let me undress you baby

Open up your mind just rest

I’m about to let you know you make me…”

Aside from the sexual reference the clarity that came to me was “Fill your mind with what you want/desire”.  Of late my brain has been on a downward spiral of what I don’t have (no job, no personal income, no stability, no whatever).  I have filled my brain with stress, sorrow, depression.

Last night lying in bed with Master I felt incredibly tired holding on to this stuff.

For self preservation I need to fill my head with better stuff.

“First keep the peace within yourself, then you can also bring peace to others.”

Outside my window… (weather, what do you hear, what do you see?) is a brisk night.  Still feel the cold of winter but with a hint of spring.



my thoughts… are on the things that I have done to move to be with Master.  There was so many thing sthat had to be done before I could move (house, kids, finances) that now that they are almost completed I feel anxious and nervous to the point of being sick.


I think it is extreme fear and the realization that there are no more obstacles and nothing else to hide behind.


Today’s Quote: I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.

Agatha Christie
English mystery author (1890 – 1976)



i am thankful for…the sun and feeling the warmth and rebirth.



From my service training…(any skills, training etc; notes you want to share this week) learning more about the leather lifestyle and realizing that I do know a lot of stuff that still feels abstract…



From the kitchen…(menu for the week, what are you cooking?)  cooking for less people constructively.



i am wearing…black pants and black turtle neck



i am creating…(crafts, sewing etc;) Nothing new at the moment



my adventures this week…(where are you going this week?)  having my front porch finally fixed…eeek



Becoming well read…(What are you reading this week?) No books this week.


i manifest and co-create…(what are your hopes, dreams, and prayers this week)  Certainty and assuredness…confidence and peace.



Today’s Melody…(what music are you listening to? even if it’s just the sound of a bird…) No melodies today



The worst thing in the world….(what is one thing you would not want to see or do, tv)  is to see Prince songs being sung on Glee…shudders…I think of elevator music



One of my favorite things…is being able to do nothing but relax



further plans for this week…Cleaning my backyard.  It’s just something good about having things in order.   I love to have a clean house and orderly surroundings

A lesson to Remember

27 09 2010

This was something I posted on my personal page a while ago.   As I remember my journey and take pride in my present I think this is one lesson that I should not forget.


I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you’ll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin might mean takin chances but theyre worth takin,
Lovin might be a mistake but its worth makin,
Dont let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance….i hope you dance.
I hope you dance….i hope you dance.
(time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along,
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone.)

So I woke up this morning, totally late for work and laughing.  The first person I spoke with was my Master and I said to him “I want to dance Master”. His response included the words Cattle Prod…LOL  Not the kind of dancing I was thinking…LOL  As I started to get out of bed the chorus to the above song was playing in my head.  I looked up the words before I left for work and this song says what I had in mind.

The words to this song are about freedom, loving yourself, loving life, acceptance of the curves in your life, letting go, holding on, and enjoyment.   Thank you Father.
