Just Got Started Lovin' You

You don't have to go now honey
Call and tell 'em you won't be in today
Baby there ain't nothin' at the office
So important it can't wait
I'm thankful for the weekend
But two days in heaven just ain't gonna do
This is gonna take forever darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you

What's the point in fightin' what we're feelin'
We both know we'll never win
Ain't this what we're missin'
Let's just stop all this resistin' and give in
Let me wrap my arms around you
You know you don't want to leave this room
Come back and let me hold you darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you

What can I say I've never felt this way
Girl you're like a dream come true
After all the love we've made
It sure would be a shame
If we let this moment end so soon

So won't you lay back down beside me
Girl just like I know you're wantin' to
Trust me when I tell you darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you

I'm thankful for the weekend
But two days in heaven just ain't gonna do
This is gonna take forever darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you
Come back and let me hold you darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you

Words of Advice From Paula Abdul

  • You can’t get to where you want to be unless you can accept where you’re at.
  • Whatever your plans are today, smile, say hello, and open the door for someone.
  • Just “Stick to it” – whatever your goals and dreams are for this day, this week, this year, this life.
  • What you don’t like, only you have the power to change.
  • If you avoid situations where you might be told ‘”No,” how will you get to your “Yes?” This so-called rejection process is part of success.
  • When taking care of others, don’t forget to nurture yourself. You cannot give if you yourself have been depleted.
  • Give yourself a quiet moment alone today and just breathe. Remember, there’s power in pause.

"I Love You This Big" by Scotty McCreery

I know I'm still young
But, I know how I feel
I might not have too much experience
But, I know love is real.

By the way my heart starts pounding
When I look into your eyes
I might look a little silly
Standing with my arms stretched open wide.

I love you this big
Eyes have never seen... this big
No-one's ever dreamed... this big
And I'll spend the rest of my life
Explaining what words cannot describe but, I'll try
I love you this big

I'll love you to the moon and back
I'll love you all the time
Deeper than the ocean
And higher than the pines.

Cause girl, you do something to me
Deep down in my heart
I know I look a little crazy
Standing with my arms stretched all apart.

I love you this big
Eyes have never seen... this big
No-one's ever dreamed... this big
And I'll spend the rest of my life
Explaining what words cannot describe but, I'll try
I love you this big

So much bigger than I ever dreamed my heart ever would
I love you this big
And I'd write your name in stars across the sky
If I could, I would

I love you this big
Oh, eyes have never seen... this big
No-one's ever dreamed... this big
And I'll spend the rest of my life
Explaining what words cannot describe but, I'll try
I love you this big

I love you this big
Oh, eyes have never seen... this big
No-one's ever dreamed... this big
And I'll spend the rest of my life
Explaining what words cannot describe but, I'll try
I love you this big

San Francisco, California, United States


This

Got a baby girl sleeping in my bedroom
And her mama laughing in my arms
There's the sound of rain on the rooftop
And the game's about to start

I don't really know how I got here
But I'm sure glad that I did
And it's crazy to think that one little thing
Could've changed all of it

Maybe it didn't turn out like I planned
Maybe that's why I'm such, such a lucky man

For every stoplight I didn't make
Every chance I did or I didn't take
All the nights I went too far
All the girls that broke my heart
All the doors that I had to close
All the things I knew but I didn't know
Thank God for all I missed
Cause it led me here to
This

Like the girl that I loved in high school
Who said she could do better
Or that college I wanted to go to
'Til I got that letter

All the fights and the tears and the heartache
I thought I'd never get through
And the moment I almost gave up
All lead me here to you

I didn't understand it way back when
But sitting here right now it all makes perfect sense

How I cried when my mama passed away
But now I've got an angel looking out for me today
So nothing's a mistake

It led me here to
This

Everday Generosity


  • Start small; it is more important to give unconditionally that to give a great deal.
  • Don't ever force yourself to give. Find something you can give from the depths of your heart with joy.
  • Give quietly; don't make a song and dance about it.
  • Even if you can't give totally, give half.
  • Give what you can, whether it is knowledge, protection, or inspiration.
  • Think each day of what you can do to help others, in whatever small way you are able. Practice mental kindness; be generous in your thoughts and words.

Appreciation

"Happiness comes with appreciation."

-Gyalang Drukpa



Happiness is choice. Each day we decide whether or not something will or will not affect us. We decide what makes us happy and what doesn't. Each day we choose our own thoughts and what we will fill our minds with. Why not choose the thoughts that make us feel good? There are so many reasons to be happy. And the secret to true happiness is found through thankfulness and appreciation.

When we can be truly grateful for all that is happening in our lives, and what already has come to be, then we are on the best pathway to happiness. There are so many reasons to be thankful, and the sooner we realize this, the sooner we can find true joy. There are so many wonderful gifts in life, we just need to take the time and realize how blessed we really are.

Appreciate and be thankful. Nothing is too small to rejoice in. Enjoy the gifts of life and find pleasure in the simple things. Choose to have a positive attitude and always try to encourage and inspire others. Happiness can be found if you are looking.
