Music For The Soul

Music. One of the only things people can look forward to at any part of the day. There's a song somewhere out there that relates to every, and I mean EVERY situation in life.

When I first meet people, a surprising question pops through my head: "I wonder what kind of music they listen to?"

I believe that through one's music choice, you can tell a lot about a person and it's a really neat way to get to know someone. We all have a different music taste and that's O.K. It's what makes us all unique.

Throughout the years, music has transformed. In 1950, Elvis Presley came into the music industry only to make himself the King of Rock and Roll.The Beatles made their debut in the 1960's becoming the first "boy band" to exist and bringing "fan girls" to life. The 1970's was when Michael Jackson changed the world with his songs in every genre and his killer dance moves. The Spice Girls turned the 90's into a pop era and defined girl power.We can't forget about the good old 2000's when NSYNC and The Backstreet Boys were out to steal teenage girl's hearts.

Within the last 17 years, we've been introduced to a variety of solo artists and bands such as Eminem, Beyonce, Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, and One Direction; but that's not even the beginning.

I wanted to take the time to bring back a few songs that we forgot about, weren't appreciated enough or never even heard of. Some of them are throwbacks, while others are more recent. These are just a list of my favorites and I hope you like them too.

"Let It Be" -The Beatles
"Hey Jude" -The Beatles
"P.Y.T (Pretty Young Thing)" -Michael Jackson
"I'll Be There"- Jackson Five

All throughout history and in the world today, music artists have changed the way society lives, thinks and acts. As society, it's our choice as to what we want to fill our mind with; positive or the negative music. It's easy for our heads to cloud up especially when these artists have such an effect on us. So next time while you're about to add that song to your Spotify or iTunes playlist, make sure the artist is using kindhearted words and the song is dispensing a positive vibe into your soul.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
