Many people have commented on a recent Facebook status about me saying that I had the worst experience at El Taco ever. It was more of a weird day than a bad one.
First, My good friend, Dave ordered his meal. He went to sit down and while he was sitting his drink was ready. So like a good friend, I brought it to him. When he got his meal, they gave him another drink. Then, when I got my meal I got an order of fries that I did not order.
My other friend, Paddy got the wrong drink, Then to make things worse, the burrito I recommended for Dave, was horrible. Also, the bench that we were all sitting at almost collapsed. - The End
On Conan O'Brien, he does this bit called, "If They Mated". If you are not familiar with this, he gets pictures of two celebrities (usually a hot Hollywood couple) and mixes their pictures up and a picture comes out of what their baby would look like.
Tonight, I was going through the internet and came across a picture of Amy Winehouse. It looks more like a picture of what Amy Winehouse and William Baldwin's baby would look like if they mated. I feel like I work for TMZ.
A few years ago, I was reading about this boy who had a tumor. It was pretty massive and the doctor told him that he didn't have that much time left. His parents had practiced meditation, they taught him to do it as well.
One day, the boy started meditating. In his meditation, he imagined that he was the pilot of an X-wing from the movie, "Star Wars", and he imagined that his tumor was the Death Star. So, he imagined that he blew it up. The next day he awoke and the tumor was gone. The doctors did some tests and found that there was no trace of cancer in his body.
The other day I was in pain. I had a migraine. It was bigger than I have had in the past. Yesterday, I woke up and it was still there. I took medicine and nothing had helped. Last night, I remembered the story about the boy and his tumor, and since I meditate from time to time, I thought it might work for me too.
This morning I woke up and the pain was gone. It's been a few hours now. The pain is still gone. This also just proves to show that you must have the faith that God is there for you and will always be there for you. The entire time I was meditating, I was talking to God. He was my co-pilot in that X-wing.
*DISCLAIMER* Before you read this blog, you need to read my previous blog entitled, "There's Something Out There, I Can't Resist".
This blog is completely different for my last blog post. This blog is about the song that brings me a lot of joy when I hear it. No kids, it's not, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" or "Wannabe" this song was written by the piano man, himself and comes from the magical decade known as... the eighties.
When I was a toddler, a song would come on the radio called, "The Longest Time" by Billy Joel. I can barely remember dancing and singing this song around the house. I have to rely on my mom telling me that I would always be singing that song and "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson.
It still gives me a good feeling whenever I hear that song. I could be having a horrible day at work and that song would come on, and my day would be better. I guess that's why it's my favorite song. It just makes me happy whenever I hear it. Here's the music video:
The year was 1985. Wait a minute, I think it was 1986. It could have been 1987. I really don't think it was 1988. Whatever, I don't feel like looking it up right now. I get lazy. Let's just say I was either five or six when the song, "These Dreams", by Heart was a big hit.
I don't know why, but whenever that song played in the house, or when my mom and I would be in the car and the song would come on the radio, I would start to cry a little. It's not really a sad song. The funny thing is that it was over twenty years ago, and whenever I hear that song, I get a little tear in my eye.
Yesterday at work, The song came on and I had just kind of stopped for a moment. I started up again. One of the guys I work with asked me what was wrong. I just looked at him, like my dog died, and told him nothing.
Now that I'm done writing this blog, I found out that the song came out in 1985. I also found the music video. It's one of the weirdest videos I have ever seen. So enjoy, while I ball my eyes out.
Last night in a bible study we talked about joy. Although that was not the focus on the study. To be honest with you, I don't remember at all what the study was about. Sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I lost track of what I'm trying to say.
We went around in a circle and talked about what brings us joy in our lives. Someone said the weather and someone else said nature. For me it was just being around people. Then I had one of those epiphany things that I only get every few years or so. Only because it's a big word that I don't use that often.
I got to think that sometimes God gives us very simple things in life that we take for granted. Sometimes we need to stop and smell the roses. We need to go dancing in the rain. You know stuff like that. I guess what I'm trying to say is that whenever you feel depressed, just stop and look at what God has given us.
