Love is Unstoppable


As most of you know, my taste is music is pretty varied…  Looking at my iPod right now, to prove the point, the next songs in the list are : Coolio, Garth Brooks, Frank Sinatra, Nickelback, The Fray, Pink, Barry Manilow, Shakira, Chris Blake, Carrie Underwood…   (I only go into this because the songs I’ve posted references to… are country…  that could be a whole other post – why country songs offer so much inspiration… #justsaying)

Ok – so in that 10 I did not hit the song I am referencing today (this particular list has 143 songs)…

So, as I was driving home the song by Rascal Flatts “Unstoppable” came on…  I love that song…

Obviously, or it wouldn’t be in my list #duh.

I think it goes nicely with my last post “Bring on the Rain” – and shows where I’m headed…

I came home, got on You Tube to find the video – and came across this one with the Olympics…  I have put the lyrics under the video with my own comments about the song relating to me…  but if you haven’t watch the video – GREAT SONG, great inspiration from the Olympians…

“Unstoppable”

Yeah yeah yeah..
Hey

 So, so you made a lot of mistakes
Walked down the road a little sideways
Cracked a brick when you hit the wall
Yeah, you’ve had a pocket full of regrets
Pull you down faster than a sunset
Hey, it happens to us all

Yes it does…  to us all, some more than others, I’ve made my share of mistakes, but I have taken responsibility for them all – so no real regrets…

When the cold hard rain just won’t quit
And you can’t see your way out of it

I hate that people ever feel like this… I may get down at times – but I have never felt that I couldn’t see my way out…  Well that is kind of a lie – there was the one big big big situation that at first I was SURE I would never get out of…  but… I did (Thanks family)

CHORUS
You find your faith has been lost and shaken
You take back what’s been taken
Get on your knees and dig down deep
You can do what you think is impossible
Keep on believing, don’t give in
It’ll come and make you whole again
It always will, it always does
Love is unstoppable

My FAVORITE line – “it always does… Love is unstoppable”

Love, it can weather any storm,
Bring you back to being born, again
oh, it’s a helping hand when you need it most
A lighthouse shining on the coast
That never goes dim

When your heart is full of doubt
And you think that there’s no way out

CHORUS

Like a river keeps on rolling
Like the north wind blowing
Don’t it feel good knowing
Yeah

CHORUS

Love is unstoppable
So you made a lot of mistakes
Walked down the road a little sideways
Love, love is unstoppable

What else is there to say??

oh yeah, Elvis is on now…  LOL

But love, love is unstoppable

Internal Editor


I am really trying to figure a few things out.  Not the deep ‘what is the meaning of life’ stuff, but the ‘little things I notice every day reading web pieces’ stuff…

First of all, I wonder where all the good editors have gone, and then I realize that maybe for online stuff – nobody edits the content before it is published.  Maybe it is the neck-breaking pace of people trying to be the first to get information out – or even that they don’t take the time to re-read their posts before publishing them that causes all of the mistakes.

To top all that off – I have no idea why it bothers me so much.  I have read so many ‘articles’ and ‘interviews’ on people’s websites and blogs, etc – and there have been many mistakes…  it is actually an exception now to read an article without a mistake… even on the sites that should know better than that!!  I can *almost* overlook a missed word, still cringe though at bad grammar… but spelling mistakes?  Really?  COME ON!!!  I’m not even talking about the ones that the spell checker won’t catch (though those still cause cringing) – I’m talking about ones that ANY spell checker would have highlighted or caught if a spell checker was run…

So the question becomes, do you point out these mistakes to the person writing the article?  I hate to put it in comments – who knows if those really get read by the author… I think telling people they made mistakes is the right thing to do – then they can go fix them and not look so inept (yes that is a strong word for in a hurry and too lazy to read through their post) to the next person reading their writing?  Anyone agree?  I have actually posted a few things on here that when I go back and look at them, I find a mistake… I roll my eyes at myself and then fixed it and republish.  Feel free if you find any errors or stupid mistakes on my part – to comment and blast me and let me know! 🙂

Lastly, it seems to me that this internal editor I have – that I cannot turn off (believe me I have tried) might be the cause of my inability to get any real writing done.  I have good stories (I think) in my head that I would love to write.  I need to figure out how to just vomit the words out, not care about form, content, sentence structure, grammar, spelling, etc…  THEN go back and EDIT…  why is that so hard?  OCD?  is there a cure for that? 🙂
