My Lyfestyle Through Lyrics


Even though this particular blog is primarily about my musical interests and my experiences around music, my interests span far beyond music. In fact, sports is quite prevalent in my life. Every week you’ll find me tweeting (@lyfeslyrics) about some physical activity in which I’m participating. If my brain isn’t thinking about music, you can bet that I’m thinking about sports (aside from “other things”). You’ll find that I’ll tweet about my daily workout routines and I’ll also occasionally give advice on things such as hydration, stretching, proper food intake, nutrition and/or training programs, due to my experience in Kinesiology and Sports. I’ll also occasionally tweet about the different sports I incorporate into my workout routines: basketball, volleyball (indoor and sand), tennis, racquetball, rugby, flag football, softball, etc. You name it, I play it… and if I don’t, I’m open to trying it.

Aside from sports, I enjoy writing poetry, but I don’t often share my pieces unless I feel compelled to do so. My poetry stems from a childhood of reading, journaling and word games (i.e.-Scrabble, Word Search and Hanging With Friends). My fascination with words and word play led to my love for creative and technical writing. For me, writing is my outlet to speak and share what is or has been in my head. I wasn’t often given the chance to speak growing up, but I learned quite quickly my first semester in college that writing 20 – 40 page papers the night before they’re due was something that came quite easily to me. I embraced my gift… even when in times it failed me (I hate writer’s block).

You’d think sports and writing would be enough, right? Wrong! I love movies, and you’ll occasionally find me not only tweeting about them, but also blogging about them or even the movie going experience. I love that movies visually help us escape the actual world we live in, as music aurally does the same to me.

Aside from sports, poetry and movies, studio/film production is a passion of mine. In actuality, it’s a rite of passage. It’s a passion that runs in the family and comes naturally. My love for laughter, love and life can all be prevalent in my writings. I hope you enjoy reading what I write as much as I enjoy writing for self therapy.

In every life lesson, be it good or bad, be grateful. Thank you. #gratitude #thankyou Love you! #HBD #Stitch #Experiment626 So... an annoying fly is up near my area of the front office. Naturally, I ask the Head of Maintenance for a fly swatter. He gives me this: an electric fly swatter. It's kind of like that lick a 9volt battery moment... try it once! Ask me if it works... #BringIt #RIPfly #INeedThisOnTheGolfCourse #electronics lol Life Lesson: Life is too short not to take risks, live it with regret of not having taken any risk, live it how you've imagined it should be and sharing it with someone you truly love. Are you living or are you existing? #thought #repost #startliving My heart is smiling. #grateful #happy #joy #love #life #passion #grace #mercy #mood #lhdc #curls I will not get a tattoo. I will not get a tattoo. I will not get a tattoo. I will not get a tattoo. I will not get a tattoo. 😰 #tattoo #polyproblems #teamtatted #inkedup #chicago #chitown #instachicago #navypier #summertimechi #tattooexpo #quote #qotd #instaquote #words #advice #loyalty #need #truth Junior grabbing his #hybrid just after he popped it over the fountain. #golf #golfcourse #woodruffgolf #sport #instasport #instagolf #life #parforthecourse Life Lesson: While playing #golf with my son, 2 holes before this hole, he had a meltdown; crocodile tears and all. "Golf is too hard!!!" he cried as he buried his face into my rib cage. "You're doing really well! That was just one bad drive. We're learning the same sport at the same time and even though I struggle with one hole, I don't let it get me down because the next hole could be my best hole ever! Keep trying. Stay positive and focus on the great things you're doing. I'm proud of you for learning a new sport with me!" I encouraged. He stepped up to tee off at this hole and said "You took my Snoopy ball last time!". He squared himself up, gave a good swing and popped it over the fountain. "THAT'S WHAT YOU GET LAKE!!!". 😂🙌🏾 This is why I love #sports! There re so many opportunities to teach kids life lessons and build self confidence, patience and other great character traits to prepare them for the real world. #instagolf #instasport #woodruffgolf #golfcourse #thecourseoflife #adventureswithjr #mommysontime #life Fun times! #cirque italics #circus #AdventuresWithJr #summertime #fun #watercircus Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! @nhlblackhawks #nhl #blackhawks #chicago #instachicago #chitown #hockey #onlyinchicago #instasport #sport What one sees as a flaw, is considered beauty to another. Surround yourself with people who genuinely see both your beauty within and on the outside. #tgif #selfie #thought #quote #qotd #instaquote
