Where Does Your Satisfaction Come From? What Does this Word Mean to You?


I honestly had no intentions of making this post by any means up until a few hours ago. I currently keep a notebook where I list my various topic ideas for the future and I suppose this will somewhat include some of those concepts as well as others I’ve mentioned in the past. A great deal was honestly inspired reading posts from a fellow blogger which made me realize that I had been thinking about this more so than I had even fully acknowledged recently.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I am truly so in love with the world of blogging in terms of being able to share ideas and thoughts with others. Blogging is more a personal autobiographical diary for me above all else really. If anyone appreciates or takes anything from it, that is all really just a plus to me.

Stay on topic, Cailin!

This all really goes hand in hand with what has even had all this on my mind recently though. Anyone who may have read my introductory post would have seen that I came across WordPress completely by accident while filling out a job application. I created one myself primarily at first just to get a feel for the site if I did manage to get the position I applied for. (I did not if you’re curious.)

Blogging and writing has always been appealing to me and something I was interested in trying but never pursued for whatever reason.

(I feel like I’m making this more about blogging which was not my intention…)

My overall point in all this rambling I suppose is that I’m a big believer in that everything happens for a reason for the most part. I’ve also found that this is a great outlet for me to occasionally organize the endless flow of thoughts that constantly occur within my head.

Jumping back to me pursuing other means of employment recently is what primarily put the current topic of discussion back into my mind. One I have always often come back to over the years for a number of reasons.

What I do for a job/career has honestly never been that important to me. I honestly have a ton of respect for anyone who truly knows what they want for themselves in this regard in many ways! When I was younger I always just wanted to help people until I realized that this could never be achieved for me in the way I wanted it to be. (I’ve mentioned this more in depth in previous posts so I won’t continue to ramble any further on unrelated things.)

My primary reason for bringing this up is with my current change in circumstances over the past few months I feel like once again I find myself bombarded by others who feel I don’t apply myself and/or waste my potential. I was completely content and happy with my old profession as well as past and future endeavors. As stated above this has never been important to me.

In all honestly, what anyone does for a living isn’t really of any interest to me for the most part. I care far more about who you are as a person and in life than your status or how much money you may make. You could make a million dollars a year and I could care less if you aren’t a good person. Granted some are able to combine helping others and/or including their passions within their professions but for most, sadly, this is not a realistic luxury. I feel this applies more nowadays than ever before.

I have never been a materialistic person in any sense whether it be what I wear, drive, own, or where I live. None of this has ever meant anything to me, nor does it matter to me in terms of anyone else’s life. If I ever do find myself overly wealthy for some reason I would probably still drive a “beater” vehicle and live in a smaller home with rather “bohemian” decor, ha ha!

I’ve never understood anyone who desires status and/or wealth feeling that this will somehow make them happy or have this need to prove anything to anyone else.

As long as I am surrounded by good people that I love, being a good person, helping others whenever I can expecting nothing in return, all while truly believing I am doing my best than what more could I ask for?

I really meant the entire theme of this post involving “satisfaction” in the generalist terms I possibly could!

I mean it also in the ways I just stated above including never expecting anything from anyone when I’m nice to them or help them. I feel like many do this for the sense of satisfaction or achievement which I will never understand as well.

I feel others even with some things can almost force a sense of satisfaction out of wanting to prove something and/or other exceptions of society in a completely different way. For example, the way that some may be obsessed with taking photos of themselves, others, places, or experiences just to prove they have/did them? (If that makes any sense at all…) I feel this reigns true more now than ever with “social media” being so important to many.

As also just mentioned above, I truly feel I have always lived and tried my absolute hardest in all aspects of life regardless of what anyone else may think about me. If I was to die tomorrow for whatever reason I would do so knowing that I was content and happy with myself all around until this point. I’ve had a great life so far honestly with many different types of experiences and people with hopefully much more still to come that I can’t even imagine.

I feel that many seem to limit their own personal satisfaction by things that other people or society put in place for them. They think they need an established career, to get married, purchase a house, have children, etc. and while all these things are well and good allowing many to feel a sense of satisfaction. You should by no means feel this is the only path to take or the only things that matter.

(I’d like to point out I have previously accomplished all of the aforementioned in the past for the record! None of this when all was said and done made me particularly happy for a number of reasons, with the only exception being my children.)

I guess I should wrap up this rambling once again with my initial question in the title of this post!

Where does your satisfaction come from?

What does this word even really mean?

I honestly couldn’t be more intrigued to potentially hear others thoughts on this subject!

As stated above, however, this is more just me needing to work out the thoughts in my own mind. About how others have recently made me reflect and think about my own actions and achievements. I know I can honestly say without a doubt that I am happy and down right proud of myself and how I’ve lived my life so far.

I don’t care what anyone else thinks about it and I never will!

Neither should you!

Whatever makes you happy and leaves you feeling satisfied with your life than keep doing it!

What else is life about?

Thank you so much for Reading!

(Jeez…I had a feeling that was going to be a long one no matter how hard I tried but come on girl…I really am the ramble on queen whether in real life or in writing even when I try my best, ha ha!)

Random Song Wednesdays! Alex Turner: Stuck on a Puzzle (A Potential New Series?)


I was thinking instead of doing “Wordless Wednesday” which I’ve become a huge fan of, that I would do something similar to this as a replacement!

Not to say that this a new concept by any means!

Just, I don’t know?

I think I have a lot to offer in the ways of random music that some may have never heard before and could appreciate.

My musical tastes really are so vast that I couldn’t possibly imagine being able to write about every band I love even if I started right now!

I thought this might be a neat alternative to help counteract this!

I’m not sure if I’m going to make it a guaranteed weekly thing just yet or if I will simply do it whenever a song strikes me that feels right!

We’ll see how it goes!

The following song I only found myself for the first time a few years back and could not get over how I hadn’t heard it previously with how much I love it now!

It is easily one of the most relaxing songs I’ve ever heard, perfectly suited for early morning, late night listening, any time of day! I always tend to put it on when I’m in a rough spot and just need to wind down.

The song has many different opinions of the romantic aspects conveyed.

Perhaps you will even be able to relate yourself?

Musically and lyrically I will always love this song!

Lemme know what you think of either the song or my new idea in general, please!


I now present to you by the lovely Alex Turner off the album Submarine…


“Stuck On The Puzzle”

I’m not the kind of fool
Who’s gonna sit and sing to you,
About stars, girl.

But last night I looked up into
The dark half of the blue,
And they’d gone backwards.

Something in your magnetism
Must have pissed them off,
Forcing them to get an early night.

I have been searching from
The bottom to the top
For such a sight
As the one I caught when I saw your

Fingers dimming the lights
Like you’re used to being told that you’re trouble
And I spent all night
Stuck on the puzzle

Nobody I asked
Knew how he came to be the one
To whom you surrendered

Any man who wasn’t led away
Into the other room
Stood pretending

That something in your magnetism
Hadn’t just made him drop
Whoever’s hand it was that he was holding.

I have been searching from
The bottom to the top
For such a sight
As the one I caught when I saw your

Fingers dimming the lights
Like you’re used to being told that you’re trouble
And I spent all night
Stuck on the puzzle

I tried to swim to the side
But my feet got caught in the middle
And I thought I’d seen the light
But oh no.

I was just stuck on the puzzle
Stuck on the puzzle.



I hope you enjoyed it!

Milestone! I am both Completely Shocked and Utterly Humbled!

I know for most bloggers this would not be that monumental of a feat to say the least.

Nonetheless, I could not be more honored and taken aback!

I began blogging only roughly a little over two weeks ago?

Somehow, in this short amount of time I have managed to gain…

100 Followers!

Words seriously can not even begin to express how much this means to me!

Any of you that have even once read, liked, commented, and/or took anything from a piece of my writing…

You are so amazing and I love you!

I truly could not be more sincere in this statement!

When I first began, I didn’t think anyone would even be remotely interested in anything I had to say.

(Or be able to look past my complete lack of writing ability…)

(Mentioned this from day one people! Ha ha!)

Let alone be able to accomplish something like this in such a short amount of time!

Like I said…

I know this is honestly nothing to some but it means the world to me!

It truly does!

I have already stated this previously in my post detailing how much I love blogging and the community. This just reinforces how much that love continues to grow and how, more than ever, I have absolutely no intentions on stopping anytime soon!

If anything?

I’m probably beginning to become just a “touch” obsessed?

I’ve already started to keep a list of specific posts and topics I plan to cover in the future.

To say the least…?

This list is, slowly but surely, growing out of control!

I have not even gone out of my way to make it so, either.

Ideas just keep constantly flooding my brain to the point I probably already have enough to last me for months to come!

It might be about the time to upgrade to a more premium layout very soon?

We will see! Ha ha!

I’m sure no one will care about this post for the most part but I felt the need to write it regardless.

(I, most likely, won’t make another one until I hit like 500 or something…)

(Bold goal but you never know!)

Thank you all again so much for the support!

Stay on the look out for all my up-and-coming content!

You all are the best!

I’m Officially in Love with Blogging and the Community!

In my very short time thus far being involved in blogging, I can firmly say without a doubt that I have already become utterly addicted and hopelessly in love! Not only with the blogging world but even more so with the COMMUNITY!

It has to be one of the most unique, amazing outlets for various creative purposes that I have ever had the pleasure of being a part of in my entire life!

I seriously don’t know why it took me so long to start my own when it was always something I found so fascinating.

I guess things just appear and develop when the time is right or something along those lines…?

Honestly, thou?

How many other places can you find such an amazing outlet for creativity that brings people from all walks of life together?

It truly is nothing short of astounding!

In my small time since beginning to write my own personal blog I have already had the pleasure of connecting and conversing with so many different amazing people. Whether it be about our philosophies on life or our similar but also varying interests.

It really is incredible!

I just wanted to take a moment to thank anyone that has already helped me to realize how amazing the blogging experience truly is!

All of you and anyone in the future who ever takes precious time from their lives to take the love, care, and devotion to make posts of any kind has my full true and honest respect!

I gave up following “traditional forms for news and/or media” years ago because, for the most part, it honestly would just make me upset or even sick with the world we live in sometimes. I suppose I also do have a slight issue with trust revolving around typical media forms as well but that’s neither here nor there.

This is a whole other reason entirely that reading what others have to say whether it be serious or for pleasure is so appealing to me.

I started this blog with nothing more in mind than to just have a little fun!

It’s also really cool in the sense that it’s almost like a journal or diary of types to keep track of your various thoughts or feeling at certain points in your life. Which I always think is an awesome thing to do or have whether it be through poetry, music, videos, or any of the other various creative forms that exist.

I wasn’t sure how entirely serious I had planned to be with my blog when I first began.

I can say now with almost absolute certainty that I will not be stopping anytime in the near future.

Thank you once again, all you lovely individuals!

Keep doing what you do!

Whatever that may be!
