If it won't matter in five years, it doesn't matter now

My last post was pretty negative. And mean. And immature. That'll teach me not to post in the heat of the moment.... I was just venting, but I'm embarrassed about it now. I apologize to any who may have been offended.

I have a new song for my play list. Though the words may not apply exactly, the message does. (Depending on how you take it.) *Pause* - Gabriel is watching his Baby Can Read video and I can't concentrate. To be continued when his video is over...

. . . . .

With so much drama going around, I find myself just wanting to detach from it. Life is too short to bother with ridiculous crap and negativity. Just like they say it takes fewer muscles to smile than it does to frown, it takes WAY more energy to be negative than it does to just be happy. When I am in the middle of a "situation" I take a step back and think "Is this going to even matter in five years?" and if it won't, it's not worth bothering with at all. I'll be the first to admit that I do let myself get caught up in things from time to time. I try to avoid it or cut it out of my life for the most part now though. Whether it's people or activities or anything else, if it doesn't make me happy or help me to progress in life, it's not worth my time and energy. Though I haven't always followed through with this mindset, it is something that I have always believed in.

Some people are just shallow and full of drama and they suck you dry. They're takers. I don't have time for takers. To those people and relationships, I say "Forget You" and walk away. Best of luck with that whole attitude and way of life, you're not worth my time.

(Yes, I know that the original version of this song used some offensive language and was rather spiteful and negative....the change of just a few words changed the whole feel of the song for me though.)

Forget You
by Cee-Lo Green

I see you drivin' 'round town
With the girl I love
And I'm like
Forget you
I guess the change in my pocket
Wasn't enough
I'm like
Forget you
And forget her too

I said if I was richer
I'd still be with ya
Now ain't that some sh-
(Ain't that some sh-)
An' although there's pain in my chest
I still wish you the best
With a "Forget you"

Yeah I'm sorry
I can't afford a Ferrari
But that don't mean I can't get you there
I guess he's an Xbox
And I'm more Atari
But the way you play your game ain't fair
I pity the fool
That falls in love with you
(Oh sh- she's a gold digger.)
Well
(Just thought you should know, yeah)
Ooo-ooo
I've got some news for you
Yeah-go run and tell your little boyfriend


I see you drivin' 'round town
With the girl I love
And I'm like
Forget you
I guess the change in my pocket
Wasn't enough
I'm like
Forget you
And forget her too

I said if I was richer
I'd still be with ya
Now ain't that some sh-
(Ain't that some sh-)
An' although there's pain in my chest
I still wish you the best
With a "Forget you"

Now I know
That I had to borrow
Beg and steal and lie and cheat
Tryin' to keep ya
Tryin' to please ya
Cause bein' in love with your a** ain't cheap.
Now, I pity the fool
That falls in love with you
(Oh sh- she's a gold digger.)
Well
(Just thought you should know, yeah)
Ooo-ooo
I've got some news for you
Ooh--I really hate your a** right now

I see you drivin' 'round town
With the girl I love
And I'm like
Forget you
I guess the change in my pocket
Wasn't enough
I'm like
Forget you
And forget her too
I said if I was richer
I'd still be with ya
Now ain't that some sh-
(Ain't that some sh-)
An' although there's pain in my chest
I still wish you the best
With a "Forget you"

Now baby baby baby
Why you wanna wanna hurt me so bad?
(So bad, so bad, so bad)
I tried to tell my mamma
But she told me "This is one for your dad"
(Your dad, your dad, your dad)
She did
And I'm like Ugh why?
Ugh why?
Ughy whyyyy?
I love you!
I still love you!

I see you drivin' 'round town
With the girl I love
Forget you
I guess the change in my pocket
Wasn't enough
I'm like
Forget you
And forget her too
I said if I was richer
I'd still be with ya
Now ain't that some sh-
(Ain't that some sh)
An' although there's pain in my chest
I still wish you the best
With a "Forget you"




*"Forget You" has been removed and is now unavailable from playlist.com, so it doesn't show up on my playlist anymore...bummer. I have removed the playlist from this post and embeded Cee-Lo's music video instead!*
