Feel Good 5 Friday … on Saturday

20 Jun

Starting to trim it down. The unnecessary. That’s what Covid is doing for some people under quarantine. The stuff you thought was so important matters less. Substance makes its way to the front.

Finding little moments and bringing gratitude into the fold make the days count.

Feel Good 5 Friday wrapped up in music and feel-good vibes. The kind of tunes that get your shoulders grooving and your feet bumping. I got the funk of the 70s making its way back to me and filling my morning runs and walks with the bellbottom vibes I need to keep the spring in my step.

But I also got some Latin flavors from an epic band that remind me of my youth and doing chores to their music. Flashbacks of vacuum cleaners, sponges, and Ajax accompanied this song so as not to make mundane housework so dreadful. And the twist from one music icon honoring another inspired me this week. That kind of music and performance and feeling make you want to do better. To rise.

And those moments were good to listen to and to watch. But I had something extra special to highlight of Feel Good 5 Friday.

Everyone has at least one moment during the week where something, or someone, made them smile. We need some of that at this time and I found an undiscovered wave of goodness a couple of weeks ago but wanted to highlight it today.

Tabitha Brown. Have you heard of her?

She’s what I need during this quarantine She spreads smiles and goodness with her warmth and safe advice, like if I want to add more garlic then I should because as Tabitha says it’s my business.

Now I’m no vegan or vegetarian, but this lady right here, makes me want to double up on my daily 5. She makes the day. She’s the girl you want to hang out with for sure.

And after I’ve done some cooking and gotten my good vibes from Tabitha the tunes that gave me the warm and fuzzies kept me going when I couldn’t find a smile.

    LOVE your five, on a Friday . . a Saturday or any day of the week you have in mind. That version of The Rising is so good, and as for EWF and Kool . . those were my jams back in the day! Before coffee became my morning staple, they provided.

    And I have to agree with Tabitha. A sliced tomato with a little salt and pepper IS life.

    Sunshine and waves, hermana

      Thanks brother! Before coffee they provided! Ha! That’s great! That should have been my title ha 🙂 I’ve been catching moments during the week and the songs are usually tied to the uplifting mood changes. Sting. I mean that’s my go-to when I need to get off my butt and do something . He does such a wonderful job that inspiration droplets travel through time and space. Kool and EWF oh man! Right? And the Tabitha lady she just out right makes me feel good, plus she’s got me eating more vegetables no vegan business going on here, not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it is ON in the kitchen. My favorites with her are … that’s your business and … oh no, uh-uh, that’s not in my ministry. That just makes for my day:)

        True thing, they did.

        Sting is always a mood lifter, agreed.

        Kool and the Gang was my JAM back in the day. As was Earth Wind and Fire. I remember how I would shimmy and sing along to the lyrics, LOL.

        Tabitha is so much fun. I relate to her dishes alright. No need to cut anything out when the fun is in adding to the party rather than subtracting from it. And YES. I love that’s not in my ministry!

    Love it my friend. I start my day with music and coffee. Them music during lunch break and before sleeping. It’s the perfect way to bring in hope, inspiration, harmony, even some catchy groove . Take care.

      It makes such a difference. I imagine during your break it definitely helps:) it’s great to see you again friend! Have a good week.
