I realized today that I've seriously been slacking on posting my Song of the Week.
So for a quick update I thought I'd just share a new discovery of mine. The band is called Sucré, and you can listen to some of their music here. So far my favorite is 'Hiding Out'. I love the way they incorporate the cello and vocal, it just sounds like a beautiful day. Plus the lead singer has fantastic style, which is always a nice bonus

"If a strong emotion suddenly lights all the candles we carry inside ourselves, it creates a brightness that shines far beyond our normal vision and then a splendid tunnel appears that shows us the way that we forgot when we were born and call us to recover our lost divine origin. The soul longs to return to the place it came from, leaving the body lifeless" ~Like Water for Chocolate


Santorum drops out, and Facebook's purchase of Instagram is still the top story?

14 Things to Give Up

Give up your need to always be right. It’s just not worth it. Whenever you feel the ‘urgent’ need to jump into a fight over who is right and who is wrong, ask yourself this question: “Would I rather be right, or would I rather be kind?” Wayne Dyer.

Give up your need for control. Allow everything and everyone to be just as they are.

Give up on blame. Stop giving your powers away and start taking responsibility

Give up your self-defeating self-talk. Don’t believe everything that your mind is telling you – especially if it’s negative and self-defeating. You are better than that.

Give up your limiting beliefs about what you can or cannot do. Spread your wings and fly!

Give up complaining. Nobody can make you unhappy, no situation can make you sad or miserable unless you allow it to. It’s not the situation, but how you choose to look at it. Never underestimate the power of positive thinking.

Give up the luxury of criticism. We are all different, yet we are all the same.

Give up your need to impress others. When you embrace the real you, you will find people will be drawn to you, effortlessly.

Give up your resistance to change. Change is good.

Give up labels. Minds only work when open.

Give up on your fears. Fear is just an illusion, it doesn’t exist – you created it.

Give up the past. Be present in everything you do. Life is a journey not a destination.

Give up attachment. The moment you detach yourself from all things, (attachment comes from a place of fear, while love is pure, kind, and self less) you become so peaceful, so tolerant, so kind, and so serene. A state beyond words.

Give up living your life to other people’s expectations. Don’t ignore your inner voice, that inner calling. Don’t forget what makes you happy, what you want, what you need. You have one life – this one right now – you must live it, own it.
