One of my favorite things is self discovery, and I’m loving my new mindset. I’ve been questioning a lot of things, and I really like this feeling of letting go of certain beliefs, especially those beliefs that hinder my mental health!

I am making some very big changes in my life. What, exactly? Well, I’m leaving that a mystery for now, but I am focusing more on myself & my dreams this year. Time is the most precious gift we have, and I’m tired of wasting it on things and people that don’t matter. I want to be happy, less stressed, and have more freedom to travel and write, and I am determined to make that happen! I am determined to find ways to thank the people in my life who have supported me & spend more time with those I love. Forget the American dream! Forget what society says or thinks! I’m done, I’m tired, and I’m over it!! It’s time for me to focus on my dreams and truly LIVE!!! ❀ I am so excited about my future, and these steps I’m making are among my favorite things, so that’s why I included them here.

I am going to do these Friday Favorites a little differently than I have in the past. Instead of highlighting a variety of songs, I’m going to take it artist by artist. I LOVE music, and I love all kinds of music, and I think this is a good way to share my favorites with you, and it is my hope, you’ll share your favorites with me, because another one of my favorite things in the entire world is discovering music!!

So today, I am going to highlight one of my all time favorite artists:

Ray LaMontagne


I absolutely love this man. His voice is very unique, he’s soulful, his music is deep, and I have had the pleasure of seeing him live!! Amanda took me a few years ago for my birthday, and it was one of the best experiences I’ve had. He talked about how beautiful life is and how it’s passing so many of us by because we’re all too busy hiding behind our phones. He made some very valid points, and I just agree with his beliefs on life & the world.

I hope you will enjoy these songs as much as I do!

  • Can I Stay

  • Empty

  • You Are The Best Thing

  • You Should Belong To Me

  • Hold You In My Arms

Another one of my favorite things to do is laugh! I love to laugh, and I love people who make me laugh. I have my go-to’s when I’m feeling down and I need someone to cheer me up. My husband makes me laugh on a daily basis, and although, I can’t pinpoint the exact reasons why I fell in love with him, I can guarantee that this was one of them. I was hooked the moment he made me snort from laughing!

One of my favorite celebrities that I can always count on for a good laugh is Justin Long! He’s so funny, and I simply adore him!!

So what music to you love to listen to? Who can you just not get enough of? Who makes you laugh?

I’m wishing all of you a fantabulous weekend!

Stay weird and great!

Love & life lessons,

    My daughter loves Ray LaMontagne and he does have a fabulous, comforting voice. Did you know today was ‘Peculiar People Day?’ I had to ask because you said stay weird! xoxo
