Always Remember Us This Way - Lady Gaga

That Arizona sky burning in your eyes
You look at me and, babe, I wanna catch on fire
It's buried in my soul like California gold
You found the light in me that I couldn't find

So when I'm all choked up
And I can't find the words
Every time we say goodbye
Baby, it hurts
When the sun goes down
And the band won't play
I'll always remember us this way Read more

Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper - Shallow (A Star Is Born)

What a gift it was to see this film at the theatre.

The world responds really well to those who take responsibility and give away credit. - Seth Godin

Many thanks to Tom Bilyeu and Seth Godin for this inspiring conversation.

As Seth says, "the world doesn’t respond well to hustlers; (people) don't like being hustled. The world responds really well to people who take responsibility and give away credit."

Protect Your Back By Lengthening Your Hamstrings

Short hamstrings and even short calves can contribute to intermittent back pain and stiffness, as a shortened posterior chain creates a constant downward pull on the pelvis, predisposing the tissues that surround the spine to sprains and strains.

With most of us sitting for many hours each day with our posterior chain contracted, it's highly worthwhile to stretch the hamstrings and calves on a daily basis. Read more

 

Grace | Rag'N'Bone Man

Said I loved you without hesitation
So easy for you to break my foolish heart
Now I wonder if you ever speak my name
Will I always be defined by my mistakes?

In the eyes of a saint I'm a stranger
We're all trying to find a way
At the death of every darkness there's a morning
Though we all try
We all try
We're all one step from grace Read more
