Cute Purse

Cute Purses
If there is one thing in the world I don’t need it is more cute purses. I never use them, and I don’t know why I buy them, but there they are hanging in my closet. They aren’t just in my closet either, they are under my bed and there are a few in one of my dresser drawers. I have some purses that I use all of the time, but I wouldn’t call them cute. They are great, but they are not cute. The cute ones are usually tiny, and something that should be used for a special occasion.
I see cute purses, and I have to have them. Not every one that I see, of course, but I will often get one if I think it’s exceptional. Unfortunately for me, there are a lot of them out there that fall under the category of ‘exceptional’. My husband often rolls his eyes at me when I pick up cute purses, but he knows better than to argue with me. He knows he will lose and I’ll walk out of the store with the purse. I know he’s right, of course, but that never helps when I’m in the store and I see something that I want.
Most of the cute purses that I own are ones that you might take with you when you are dressed up for a night on the town. I don’t often dress up, and I work from home, so there is never really a reason for me to use any of them. I often have it in my mind that I will most definitely use the cute purses that I am buying, but it just never happens that way. I guess I’ve always been somewhat of a tomboy, and when it comes time to go out to dinner I choose nice places to go, but you really don’t have to dress up to go there.
I have finally found some good uses for my cute purses, however, as my daughter has recently discovered the fun of dress up. She loves to put on anything out of the ordinary, and she has used many of my cute purses to play dress up and pretend. It’s not exactly what I had in mind when I bought them, but I am delighted that she likes them, and that they have finally been put to good use, even if I’m not the one using them.

Jennifer Paige Lyrics Always With You

Jennifer Paige Lyrics : Always You
I see a mystery ship out on the water
I wonder where it's sailing to
Is someone waiting in some other harbor
These fantasies they blow my way
Like sirens to a fool
And in the stillness of my soul
I keep returning to

Always you
You know I live on the wind where love runs free
I come back to you
Always you
And when I fall to earth you're always there for me
I come back, I come back, I come back to you

Looking at myself 'til the mirror shatters
I hear a madman sing his tune (he says)
It's only love that ever really matters
I wake up in this dream tonight
That's when I see the truth
Of all the faces in my heart
There's only one I choose

Always you
You know I live on the wind where love runs free
I come back to you
Always you
And when I fall to earth you're always there for me
I come back, I come back, I come back to you

Something in my soul never changes baby
You're the one that's keeping me sane
There is no other that I have ever conceived
Could be my lover and never leave when I run free
Could be my lover, could be my lover

I wake up this dream tonight, thats when ill see the truth
Of all teh faces in my heart, theres only one i choose

Always you
You know I live on the wind where love runs free
I come back to you
Always you
And when I fall to earth you're always there for me
I come back, I come back, I come back to you...

Windows Live

Windows Live

There are so many places that you can blog these days. Today lets look at Windows Live , a free blogging and networking platform. With so many options out there you might ask why would I want to use something that is related and owned by Microsoft. That is a great question in my opinion.

The main reason is that this site has a neat networking feature of being able to add friends. While this doesn't sound like much, it can help businesses reach new customers. If you look at this Arlington Heights real estate profile that was just created you will see that at the top there is a section called friends. This list shows the friends of the member and many people will check out this list and read other peoples blogs.

This free exposure can help you build up contacts that you would have never been able to reach on your own. For the little amount of time and effort needed it is worth taking some time to play with this free blogging platform. For more ideas about how to build up your online presence visit WebNewsForUs a site that helps real estate agents generate more exposure online and off.

Zong Liricys hehehehe

Can song lyrics change your life? Does listening to music have the potential to alter the world? Yes, it does. But the changes still have to start with you. If you learn how to listen to music very honestly, you can learn the secrets of the ages by listening to song lyrics.
"I've been cheated. Been mistreated. When will I be Loved?" This set of lyrics written by Linda Rondstadt years ago gave rise to my understanding of the tansformative power of listening to song lyrics. I was in college, studying the book Beloved, by Toni Morrison. I had a paper due in one day;' I was completely stressed out; and I had no clue what to write about.
I took a nap and woke to the lyrics of Ms. Rondstadts song. It was buzzing in my ears, and I had the sudden feeling that I should pay close attention. I intuitively felt the lyrics were important.
They were.
Although I do not recall the precise details, the few lines from that song gave me all the insight I needed to write my paper in a very short time. The line "When will I be loved?" was a doorway into my understanding of the book Beloved. I realized that the central character just wanted to be loved, and that was all I needed to know to access enough creativity to write a terrific paper. From that moment on I never doubted the pure potentiality of song lyrics.
The above is just one illustration of the power of song lyrics. Many more are possible. For instance, always pay close attention to any song lyrics that run through your head.
When lyrics run though your head, they stop being "out there." For all practical purposes, if you are singing the song lyrics, then you might as well have written them in the first place. You are imbuing them with meaning, and they are now "in" you, so to speak.
So, how so you benefit from this knowledge? By understanding that what you are singing about is about you. You can gain great self-awreness and wisdom by looking carefully at what you are singing. Do not assume that these are just random song lyrics running though you mind. They are not random. You are choosing to sing them and they have a message.
The message is usually about something you wish you had or about something you are fearful of. The song you are singing offers you clues as to what your deepest values and bleifs are. These deep attitudes are what you need to uncover in order to become more self-aware and powerful. So next time song lyrics run thourhg your head or come onto the radio at an odd time, pay very close attention. They just might change your life or give you an answer you needed.
