Song in Your Box, Week Forty-One

Week Forty-One, "Here I Go Again"

Oh My Gosh, what a week! I really don't even know where to begin. Aside from getting back in the grind of the city after vacation, it was mine and my roomie/friend (I like to say roomfriend or friendmate:) Kevin's birthday celebration on Saturday night. (My bday is tomorrow, his was Saturday)

We had the BEST time!!!! My friends new and old came to celebrate as did my brother and sister. We danced the night away and didn't leave until 3am! I haven't had a night like that in quite some time. Needless to say, I am still pretty tired and am finding myself needing to heed some of my own advice.

Advice such as: You can't wait for inspiration to hit. You just have to do it anyway. And: it doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to be good enough to put out. Read: stop being so damn critical/hard on yourself! It's really not easy for me to follow but really easy for me to say. I haven't been feeling as inspired as I know I can be and have been finding myself putting things off that I know I have to do. But I know from experience that you just have to DO them. Motivation and Inspiration don't "hit". (Well, maybe they do sometimes but you can't WAIT for them to hit.)

So this week's song is....what I came up with:) It's a catchy little number that I quite enjoy playing. It's about repeating old patterns and habits- something I'm sure we can all relate to.

What do you do when you find yourself unmotivated? Any techniques that work for you? Please share them in the comments below.

Thanks as always for listening! (with headphones:)

My birthday love,


If you want to give me the ultimate birthday present I would LOVE it if you tell ONE friend about this project and have them sign up for my list! Or send them your favorite song. NOTHING would make me happier!:)



You got me swimming

In the calm of your deep sea

And now I'm sinking

Cuz I've forgotten how to breath

You've got me hooked onto your line

I get distracted by the shine

Here I go again here I go again

You got me running

Running right over to you

You got me loving

All the things you want me to

You got me blinded by your light

I think it's different this time

Here I go again, Here I go again

You'd think that I would learn my lesson

But I don't pay that close attention

You got me thinking

About the things that we could do

And now I'm drinking

To get my mind off of you

I wish that I could change my mind

I think it's different this time

Here I go again, Here I go again

I'm addicted

to the possibility

it's self-inflicted

And now it's got a hold on me

I can't see clearly sometimes

I get distracted by the high

Here I go again, Here I go Again
