I came across this song on Sunday as part of our morning worship service dealing with the day’s topic. It’s a beautiful song with great lyrics. It pretty much makes you stop and consider how self-centered we tend to make our days and our lives. Realistically, we all NEED to think about ourselves and what’s best for us in most cases….but we do tend to forget that there are other people around us who we might be able to benefit or aid in some way.
It doesn’t always have to mean the extremes of giving (such as monetary gifts for those financially hurting or volunteering your time to those in need), though those are always appreciated. Really, it can mean something as simple as acknowledging the people around you. holding the door open for someone coming in the door, or smiling at the cashier who rings you up.
Much of it can come down to manners or etiquette, so just giving yourself an ego check whenever you feel too deserving or impatient can go a long way. Let other people into your world and make sure that you aren’t living in a state with only population: you.
On a lighter note, this song has been playing on our soundtrack at work now and (no real offense to anyone who likes the song), I just can’t get over how horrible the lyrics are. It’s obviously a fun clubby kind of song, and will definitely be a hit live with all the girls that will be swooning over the artist but man….
“…trying to find a pretty girl that these shoes go nice with…” . I shake my head every time I hear it.
i love the song!.. (not the iyaz song)…i think there are too many songs about “girls” out there.. and not enough songs about “boys”… although that estelle song AMERICAN BOY..ooo that was hot…
i saw your bodyspacepage site with all your “primadonna” poses.. hihihihi ..one sweet day i’ll start to try and pump up… but everytime i gain muscle i feel “FAT”..(oh boy i have issues)
I love that American Boy song, that one gets a big checkmark from me lol.
Oh I’ve had my issues with weight too. I started out 116 and I’m floating around 125ish now. I’m having to eat more and at times I feel fat but I just have to get over it and realize I’m only putting in the calories my body needs. This is the most I’ve ever weighed so it’s super strange to me.
