5/52: Blessings

  • Going to the supermarket today with $90.00 then having my grocery bill come up to $88.27.  I was so sure it was going to be more!
  • Going to the other supermarket with $21.73 and having that bill come up to $20.47!  So sure that was going to be more as well!
  • Movie night: IRON MAN  — the new and improved, drug-free Robert Downey Jr.  — as awesome as chicken wings and the Super Bowl! 😀

Keeping It Real — Shaggy

Uh – that’s right
Reality check
You know what I mean
Street lives eh
Scorpion yeah uh

When I was young
I use to dream of being rich
Have a lot of houses and cars
Couldn’t know which one was which
And finding me a chick and getting hitched
Living the fairy tale life perfect without a hitch
You think that this would bring me happiness
If at the end of every rainbow
There was a treasure chest
Sometimes having more is really less
So take a look inside yourself
You’ll realize you’re really blessed
No matter how inside you’re blue
There’s always someone who has it worse than you
Sometimes you gotta pay your dues
So don’t worry just push on through

[Chorus:]
Keeping it real
Gotta big up all my peoples who be working on the future
Though they know they gotta struggle
Keeping it real
To all my homies working on the 9 to 5
And doing right to keep themselves up out of trouble
Keeping it real
Although sometimes I know it seems impossible
There ain’t no need in drowning in your sorrows
Keeping it real
If things are as bad as they can be
You can be sure there’ll be a brighter tomorrow

And I forgot to have myself the house, the mansion, and the Benz
I’m not the type of brother who be making mad ends
I got myself a girl but we be kickin’ it as friends
Is not enough for me now that depends
Again – not everthing you want is everything you really need
The standard of society is motivated by greed
Are you prepared to follow
Tell me are you prepared to leave
So persevere and you’ll succeed

[Chorus]

[Hook]
All the harsh realities
Appears to come in two’s and three’s
Don’t worry cause
There’ll be a better day
One thing I can promise you
Just keep on keeping on
I swear to you
There’s gonna be a brighter day

[Chorus]

Back in the days
I use to dream of being rich
Have a lot of houses and cars
Couldn’t know which one was which
And finding me a chick and getting hitched
Living the fairy tale life perfect without a hitch
You think that this would bring me happiness
If at the end of every rainbow there was a treasure chest
Sometimes having more is really less
So take a look inside yourself
You’ll realize you’re really blessed
No matter how inside you’re blue
There’s always someone who has it worse than you
Sometimes you gotta pay your dues
So don’t worry just push on through

[Chorus]

That’s right, see me, yeah
Give thanks for what you have, ya know
And when you think that its bad
There’s always somebody that’s worse
Know what I’m sayin’
Give Jah blessing, see me
Wa-wa, Wa-wa
Wa-wa, wa-wa

    1. More cool points from me to you! I knew I liked you for a reason!!! LOLOL! 😀

      I’ve had this cd since it came out. Decided to throw it on last Saturday … brought back every fun memory I’ve associated with these songs! Love me some Shaggy!

  1. Well those are nice blessings!

    I’ve liked Robert Downey, Jr. (as an actor) the moment since I saw him in the movie, Less Than Zero. That was back in the 1980s. A bit sad to see that his real life turned out to be a lot like that movie (at least with the drug addiction.) I read about his transformation a few months ago and I was thrilled. Hopefully his experiences can help those who might be encounter the same obstacles.

    Some habits can be extremely hard to break and instead of constantly judging perhaps we should encourage and pray they overcome their dependencies. We all have them… the only difference is some are more pronounced than others. I guess that principle can be applied to many aspects of our lives. Regardless of a persons views, instead of tearing one another down, let’s take time to listen and interact with one another.

      1. I’m leaving the wink alone … LOLOL … and I’ll just concentrate on agreeing with you. 😛 My place of employment assists those with the obvious dependencies but I agree … we all have something. I also agree that with encouraging and praying for overcoming dependencies.
