Jovie J’s Cover – Skyfall by Adele

I am so blessed to have so many talented friends.  I would like to highlight one in particular tonight.

Jovel, affectionally known to me as JovieJ or Joves has been a sistren to me for many years.  I’m honored to call her friend and I’m so glad that I get to share with you what I’ve always known.

She has such a gift of song and has started to build out her covers on her youtube page. Please subscribe.

I’ve posted her rendition of Skyfall, from the recent James Bond movie called Skyfall, originally by Adele.

JovieJ has such a great voice and makes every note memorable.  She is also an avid blogger and you can find her link to The Big Risk at the right in my blogroll. Big up to mi sistren!

Hello folks…With a little help, I got such a bolt of inspiration tonight.  One of my closest friends had a great experience with one of her patients who shared the following quote:

“Honey! What good is love if you don’t give it away?” – Unknown

How awesome is that?  It’s a simple thought, but deeply rooted in the elemental level of our human experience & existence.  Just something to think about, especially in times like these.  Be inspired always.

Here’s a thought for you to chew on this coming week.

“Sometimes you need to be reduced to make room to be restored…” – Aurie

I won’t say much more than that because it can mean so many things to so many people.  Just remember that your process is yours and no one can own it the way you can.

Peace and Blessings

This one is called Sometimes.


  • you feel like too much is happening at once
  • you have to step away to see things clearly
  • there are some things that aren’t meant to understand at the moment you want to understand them
  • you feel like bustin’ out in song for no good reason and you probably should
  • the simplest things in life have more context than you could ever imagine
  • simplicity is simply simple

Have a great week and continue to find your inspirations in your daily life.  It’s the best place to start.

Today’s inspired series focused on a quick hitter to keep your spirits up.  I know I personally take a lot of solace in the fact that I cherish my ability to work hard on a consistent basis.  It gets tiresome after a while.  There are times you just go and go and go and it feels like no progress is made.  Day to day things don’t seem to be progressing in any specific direction.  Today, I could easily echo this sentiment.  Instead, I choose to be inspired.

When life seems to get bogged down in the mundane details of your everyday experience you should:

“widen your perspective your focus is too narrow…” – Aurie

Be inspired, be encouraged, and share this Aurieism with someone you know.
