There are two kinds of people in the world: those who make excuses and those who get results. An excuse person will find any excuse for why a job was not done, and a results person will find any reason why it can be done. Be a creator, not a reactor. — Alan Cohen, A Deep Breath Of Life

Tribute to Grandpa

These are some words that define you;
Your faith is admired, and your courage is true.
The nights are short, and the days are long,
And everyone’s singing an empty song,
But soon the song will fill with words,
because the melody is all that hurts.
Listen close and you’ll hear the chime-
How was playing your fiddle for the last time?
You played beautifully and the music still flows,
Sweet and easy in each of our souls.
The prairie breathes quiet with the absence of your voice,
I guess I grew accustomed to hearing that noise.
Sometimes I hear words you used to say,
Your angelic voice saying, “It’ll be okay.”
The times flew by between you and I,
And when I think of the memories, I smile, not cry,
I smile for all the days that we shared,
And I smile to know how much you cared.
To laugh and share jokes, oh, I wish that we could,
If I could be with you forever, you know that I would.
All that knew you are touched by your name,
I take pride in knowing you’ll always be the same.
Nobody could have loved you as much as I do,
But if they had wings, they’d fly to you;
If I had wings, I’d fly there too. 


In Spirit of Friday…

Here’s an awesome video my creative writing teacher showed me a couple weeks ago and I just suddenly got the urge to post! A cover of Friday, by Taylor Hicks, and some other people I don’t know- but hey, it’s funny, and an incredible performance!

Intro to me

My name is Breanna, and I’m fresh into adulthood. I like to think that I’m creative, and strive to be so in many forms. I like to express myself, and my ideas, through methods such as writing, artwork, song, and dance. Although I don’t see myself excelling in any of these fields professionally, they have been some of my great passions as far back as I can recall. I hope you enjoy browsing my blog, and I look forward to hearing anything you might have to say!
