Fight the Good Fight

I’d like to share what is perhaps my favorite song. On those days when it’s hard or unfair this song helps me kick it aside and get it done.

The days grow shorter and the nights are getting long
Feels like we’re running out of time
Every day it seems much harder tellin’ right from wrong
You got to read between the lines

Don’t get discouraged, don’t be afraid, we can
Make it through another day
Make it worth the price we pay

The Good Book says it’s better to give than to receive
I do my best to do my part
Nothin’ in my pockets I got nothin’ up my sleeve
I keep my magic in my heart

Keep up your spirit, keep up your faith, baby
I am counting on you
You know what you’ve got to do

Fight the good fight every moment
Every minute every day
Fight the good fight every moment
It’s your only way

All your life you’ve been waiting for your chance
Where you’ll fit into the plan
But you’re the master of your own destiny
So give and take the best that you can

You think a little more money will buy your soul some rest
You’d better think of something else instead
You’re so afraid of being honest with yourself
You’d better take a look inside your head

Nothing is easy, nothing good is free
But I can tell you where to start
Take a look inside your heart
There’s an answer in your heart

Fight the good fight every moment
Every minute every day
Fight the good fight every moment
Make it worth the price we pay

Every moment of your lifetime
Every minute every day
Fight the good fight every moment
Make it worth the price we pay

A Quiet Thursday

I am glad today is a quiet day at work as it gives me time to ponder something Selina said to me how I balance being a Man, Dom, Daddy, Caregiver, Sadist and all around pervert.  While I am rather rusty when it comes to journaling you have to start somewhere right?

The funny thing is I don’t try to balance it, I am all of these things together at the same time. While aspects ebb and flow it makes up who I am. That pleasure I get from giving good  (I hope) advice, to being the ear that she needs to vent in, to the one who takes her in a firm hand. Like anyone I want to be wanted, need to be needed and to be valued for the things you bring is heart lifting.

I think we all have to find our balance point, how we align the shifting facets of our personalities moment to moment important. Where I feel we fail is constantly in suppressing one or more of our facets in favor of others. Granted there is a time and place to express or suppress portions of your personality, yet when you lose the balance, when one side is never expressed you start to fall…
