I love how they have there option of
Thumbs up or Thumbs down to a song-
If it's thumbs down- BYE BYE song that my ears dislike and if thumbs UP'd it remembers that you felt warm and fuzzy feelings inside when it came on. You get the point.
Today, I pressed the thumbs down button a little too much , I know this because if you press it TOO much it won't change the song. It gets mad and says:
" You are way too picky, screw you ,I work hard all day and you thumbs down me, I'm keeping this song on, you're way too demanding. "
Ok, Pandora probably doesn't have these emotions, but this is where my brain wanders.
I wish life came with a thumbs up and thumbs down option.
You know- Awkward social situations.... THUMBS DOWN and poof- GONE! Move on!
Or those special moments- like Luke and I saw a shooting star the other day , I would of definatley THUMBS UP'D it and ask for that to reoccur.
But life doesn't work like that.
It works more like today where I Thumbs down'd the heck out of Pandora and it didn't budge.
I can thumb down days/experiences and those moments all I want, but they aren't going anywhere.
They stare at me and say " HA HA you're stuck with me and you have to deal with me "
I'm thankful for this.
If I got everything I wanted when I wanted , I'd be in a big mess.
I wouldn't have faith,endurance,courage even.
You know those experiences you have in life you can always look back to and say
" Atleast it's not as bad as when _____ " and all of our " Blanks " are different.
Perspective is a very reviving thing.
I crave perspective, even down to what does " Broke/No money " mean to me verses others.
What does " Hungry " mean to me verses another.
What does " Hurt " mean to me verses another. And ect.
Whether emotionally I feel " injured " or if I'm overtired and I therefore think the whole world is falling apart or simply my biggest "thing" is being overwhelmed.
Today I had a moment- a thumbs down moment actually.
If life were a song played on Pandora I would be pressed the thumbs down button going " HEY HEY did you not get the memo that I do not like this ?!"
Even thought to God " I don't like this. " even reiterated--- " you know I don't like this. "
Like that'd drive my point to God even more.
I thought to myself- " Atleast this is not like the time I was lieing on the bathroom floor, eventually begging for my Life at the beginning of my disease....... "
Eeessh. Ouch right in my face.
I might still throw tantrums because something isn't " fair ", or " that " didn't work out how I wanted it to.......
The list goes on.
But it's okay. wow Pandora what a profound point you drove into me today.
So here's some Thumbs UPS!
Free Starbucks Coffee Today- Score! Thumbs up!
I hope you decide to have a Thumbs Up rest of the day too.
I'm gonna go Zumba and have a popsicle.
That's a thumbs up time.
