WHEN YOU ARE DOWN THE ONLY WAY IS UP.

I don't know about you guys but there have been occasions in my life when I've been really down. One time in particular I was so low that I was incapable of seeing any way out of the situation that I was in. I was at my place of work ( which I was ready to jack in ) totally not interested in what I was doing, just biding my time until it was time to go home when a song started playing on the radio which I found quite uplifting. The song was " I'll Find My Way Home " by Jon Anderson & Vangelis. As I listened to the words of the song I felt lighter of spirit and a general feeling of well being. I looked the song up on the net and downloaded it and then played it continuously and never got fed up with it lol. The strange thing is that I've never been a person that listened to the radio never mind the words of a song so for me to hear that particular piece of music on that strange day, well interesting to say the least. This was all a long time ago and today all's been well in my life since that time.  All down to positive thinking and action. Remember "As You Think So You Are".    So here's hoping you like Vangelis.

  2. Vangelis is one of my favorite composers! He has a few great albums, and I also like the Blade Runner soundtrack.

  3. I love Vangelis! And things will work out.

    If your current situation is not making you happy -- make a change. Whatever that change may be. Life is short and what you want is important. :)
