A Thousand Years

Heart beats fast
Colours and promises
How to be brave
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow

One step closer

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What’s standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this


“Already Gone”

We were never meant for do or die

I didn’t want us to burn out
I didn’t come here to hurt you
Now I can’t stop

I want you to know that it doesn’t matter
Where we take this road
Someone’s gotta go
And I want you to know
You couldn’t have loved me better
But I want you to move on
So I’m already gone

Looking at you makes it harder
But I know that you’ll find another
That doesn’t always make you want to cry
Started with a perfect kiss
Then we could feel the poison set in
Perfect couldn’t keep this love alive
You know that I love you so
I love you enough to let you go


To all the women…

A thought occured to me today…. a lot of women don’t know their worth, myself included. I don’t know what it is about women where we give and give and don’t take in as much as we deserve. We also stay in dead-end relationships where the guy isn’t worthy of our love. We settle when there’s no reason to. We make do when making do isn’t necessary.

My fellow woman kind, you are worth more than the stars in the sky, the sand in the ocean and the water in the sea. Know your worth, set expectations, live your life to the fullest and always aim for the best because you deserve it. If you find it hard to realize your worth, realize this:

You are worthy of everything great that life has to offer
You deserve trust, honesty and respect from your significant other
You are deserving of being told you are beautiful

You are worthy of being treated fairly and without discrimination
You deserve true happiness and peace of mind
You deserve to love and accept your body for what it is

You are worthy of the best in life without settling
You deserve to be appreciated for who you are
You are deserving of independence and freedom

You deserve to never be treated unkindly or physically abused
You deserve to leave if you should find yourself in a bad relationship
You are worthy of seeking carnal pleasures without being labeled a slut

You are deserving of being spoiled and pampered from time to time
You are worthy of being told you are sexy
You are deserving of Friday nights in where you dance in your undies

Most of all, you are worthy of love and romance!

** I had found this quite some time ago and posted it to my Facebook. It’s beautiful, so I reposted.  Not only do men need to read and learn this, but women also need to remind themselves: YOU ARE WORTHY. ❤

A few updates:

  • I got a call for an interview for a full-time posting in ICU – the morning of December 29 after my two night shifts.  The clinical manager sounded very sincere and was accommodating with potential times for the interview. “I don’t want you to have to come in on your day off AND have to fight parking” 🙂 It gives me a tad bit of time to “prepare”.  Any tips? A good friend just started working the unit and says the clinical manager makes you feel very comfortable and not intimidated at all. Being a Virgo, I can’t help but write notes and think about potential questions she may ask! Doesn’t hurt to be OVER prepared.
  • I’m absolutely dreading this lack of snow. Sincerely, if I wanted to have a green Christmas, I’d have gone on vacation to some remote tropical location.  Christmas just isn’t the same without SNOW! Which brings me to my next point ….
  • 3 days (since it’s almost midnight) until I get to head home to my parents for Christmas! I work day shift December 21 and 22, and then I am packing Albie (my SUV; he’s white… albino…. alb..ie , yeah) up and hitting the highway the next morning! Big plans for that same day: wrap a few gifts, make a trip to LCBO, meet up with Jules to head across the ditch to shop and go for dinner/drinks. SUPER excited, can you tell?! It truly gives me motivation; it’s something to look forward to.
  • I find myself in a different type of mood….  Definitely not a bad thing. ♥

I did quite a bit of shopping today — headed to Winners and a few various stores to check out the selection. My main reason for going out to shop was to find a new filter for my Tassimo.  No bueno, did not find any authorized resellers here that had it.  However, I did manage to find 4 very cute shirts, a pair of comfy jeans, and (another) cute new winter coat.  Typical.  I end up purchasing things I never had any intention to even look for.  I was relieved that traffic was not as horrible as I had prepared myself to face.  Mind you, it was 1pm on a Monday!

I got home shortly after 4pm, and went to check emails

when I plug in my macbook to realize the charger isn’t lighting up. I plug it into a different outlet hoping it’s just that. Nope.

Check the cord: little tiny teeth marks.  Seemingly not enough to fffk it up enough to not charge.  WRONG. *sigh*.  Karma, as the little terrorist (Oscar, my one cat) had chewed my sisters macbook cord the other week. Off to Best Buy I went to buy a newcord. $100.  Maybe I should take that money out of his organic holistic kibble funds.  Instead- I figured why not go to Pet Smart to buy more as I’m running low.  Spoiled little sh*t. I always threaten to bring him back to the ‘pound’ where I adopted him from as a kitten, and he just sits there looking up at me innocently.  I’m weak, lol.

Just for fun, here’s Odis as well (the black one):

Even though I am full of energy for some odd reason (night shift, no matter how many days it’s been since one, still messes with my system), I’m going to relax in bed.  Amanda and I are going to Tutti Frutti for brunch tomorrow 🙂 Fantastic. x
