this is my life,this is my Journey….

I have to admit that the song “The Journey” *** wasn’t my favorite song of the album as much as a first single should be…i loved it but it wasn’t my favorite until i realise what is all about.Now i feel its one of the most complete and meaningful songs Dolores O’Riordan ever wrote. Having known the way she wrote it and the only few minutes needed to write it makes it even more perfect for me.

It’s obviously inspired by the journey of life as she says many times, she also said “you live only once so enjoy every day you live”..or “there are people who carried you and supported you when you were weak,when you were low,be sure to cherrish them” and beautiful things like that…and because of this i caught my self feeling much better while in any different case i d be bored or even miserable.

see.. really is important what this woman brings to my life and i think we should all try to understand what she says..the glass is half full if you believe it…and if you listen to her you can enjoy every day because this might be your perfect day and maybe it can’t be any better..

i was so happy that she reffered to that parable…because it shows how she is connected with God and how she can make everything she thinks a great song.

Take a minute to read it if you dont know it already

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord,
“You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during
the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one
set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
you have not been there for me?”

The Lord replied,
“The times when you have
seen only one set of footprints,
is when I carried you.”

NOW check the song and listen the lyrics. the video is as beautiful as the song is..

at last but not least, here i’m posting one of my most favorite interviews she ever had..
the fifth part is my favorite. I go and watch it every few days, especially when i’m tending to become sad for any reason.It works for me…She is wise she takes away my fears and everything bad…i love her.

THANK YOU once again Dolores!

*** for those who dont know the song,this is the first single from Dolores’ second solo record’No Baggage’ and please go and buy it right now!
