********************************


I thought of the following song to put with this image, at the last minute actually...
The saying, is something I happen to say quite often... mostly to get myself through... :)

Though, I like "Jem" very much, in general, when this following song first came out, I was obsessed with it... I still listen to it, and re-read the lyrics, when I need to help boost myself up again. :nod:

Just a Ride

by Jem :music:

Life, it's ever so strange
It's so full of change
Think that you've worked it out
then BANG
Right out of the blue
Something happens to you
To throw you off course
and then you

Breakdown
Yeah you breakdown
Well don't you breakdown
Listen to me
Because

It's just a ride, it's just a ride
no need to run, no need to hide
It'll take you round and round
Sometimes you're up
sometimes you're down
It's just a ride, it's just a ride
don't be scared
don't hide your eyes
It may feel so real inside
but don't forget it's just a ride

Truth, we don't wanna hear
It's too much to take
Don't like to feel out of control
So we make our plans
Ten times a day
And when they don't go
our way we

Breakdown
Yeah we breakdown
Well don't you breakdown
Listen to me
Because

It's just a ride, it's just a ride
no need to run, no need to hide
It'll take you round and round
Sometimes you're up
sometimes you're down
It's just a ride, it's just a ride
don't be scared
don't hide your eyes
It may feel so real inside
but don't forget it's just a ride

Slowly, oh so very slowly
accept that
there's no getting off
So live it, just gotta go with it
cause this ride's, never gonna stop

Breakdown
Don't you breakdown
No need to breakdown
No need at all
Because

It's just a ride, it's just a ride
no need to run, no need to hide
It'll take you all around
Sometimes you're up
sometimes you're down
It's just a ride, it's just a ride
don't be scared now
dry your eyes
It may feel so real inside
but don't forget Enjoy the Ride.

I wish it was in a shop...
maybe someday it would be in shop... sigh...

But for now it is available to buy as postcard here on dA. Yup! :nod:

I'm sure it's pretty expensive though, as postcards go... but it is available nonetheless.

I've also seen them as greeting cards, a friend bought a set, they are beautiful! :w00t:

I thought it did, it totally just popped into my head. :lol:

That's neat that the musical part of this piece, reminded you of your album! :w00t:

I have it, too, and was at one point totally obsessed with this song- it was my therapy, the lyrics though simple-ish, really got me through... I think I played it everyday in my car on my way to work for about 3 months straight, back when I was still able to work. :nod:

I hope you enjoyed your listen. :music:
Music is just awesome. :heart:

I'm trying to enjoy it! infact i'm going to a counsellor to try and learn how to enjoy it again after my break up!

I like baby things :D

:iconteaphotography:
TeaPhotography Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2009  Professional General Artist
Oh, yes... :nod: ...

Hey, the trying to enjoy life, is definitely a big deal, and so very important, and truly brave and courageous, especially after a very particular challenging life altering event. I've been there... several times. I've been to a counselor more than once, actually three times, though each time I've gone were for three separate tragedies, and each time was a shorter amount of time actually.

I think this is because I had already learned skills from before, and life experience in general, that applied to my current challenges even if they were different ones from the past.

I became stronger and stronger over time, and more able to deal with... so many types of hardships which I kept having.

I'm not saying you're going to have harder things to deal with- I hope you don't, BUT hopefully because of your courage to get help, you will gain skills that will be useful along the course of your life in other situations.

Like enjoying life, the whole thing, despite its ups and downs. NOT an easy thing, but possible with the right combination of "tools"...

My very best to you on your journey of enjoying life!
You're on the right path. :D :hug:

Baby things rock! ;)

Well, the way I see it, it's kind of like being strong enough to let them in.

Love this moment!
Nice to see other people run up to 3200 and take the shot, rather than live 'safely' at ISO 200, and blur stuff for fear of a little grain! Can't see the grain anyway, and the moment is caught! Well done.

Thank you! For some reason, I have found I really like 3200 a lot. I figured out how to work pretty well with it, and get pretty good results that I'm fairly satisfied with. It's interesting, really. Nah, I rarely shoot at 200... mainly because it does seem too safe, there's a lot you can do by "changing things up a bit" :lol:

I really truly appreciate this comment, quite a bit. :D
