Thru My Eyes
By Monique Dee & Tha Expressionist
Thru My Eyes was written for my brother, when coming out of jail, as motivation and inspiration for him to believe in himself and what he can achieve, and to not let what people may say or think stop him from trying because there are people who see more in him than his mistakes, and who understand and believe in him.
The verses are written as the younger brother (Steven) speaking, but it’s my view of who he is, what I believe he feels and what he might want to express or accept. The chorus is written as me talking to him.
The song is fairly rough and never got completely finished, but I felt it was enough for what I wanted it for. Maybe some day we’ll finish all the fine tuning it needs.
Attitude by Charles Swindoll-
“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.” – Charles Swindoll
