MM - Dreams by Gabrielle *

For the past few days, I've been feeling a little blue and though I will not elaborate on the reason behind it, suffice to say that it is obviously making me a little sluggish and demotivated, both in my online world and offline reality. I am in need of a little inspiration, a pick me up if you will; something to give me hope and reaffirm my faith that all the craziness surrounding will eventually disappear and work out on their own.

So, as late as I am, I'm still participating in this week's Music Monday! I find it essential to have this particular song here at my blog, as a reminder to yours truly that when all else fails there's always tomorrow. It will serve as the inspirational push I need to help Mariuca get her groove back. Though it will bring back many bittersweet memories to have this song here, it is exactly what I need in order to regain my strength, put aside my current sorrows and face the harsh reality that beckons with greater determination to simply move on and make things work!

Dreams by Gabrielle has always been a favourite of mine. Holding endless memories behind it, this number has helped me through many rough spots in my life once upon a time. I never did stop loving it and today, it seems most appropriate to have it featured as my Very Late Music Monday post. Each time I take a listen, it never fails to uplift my spirits, bringing me back to reality; leading me to believe again in the many beautiful dreams I once aspired to achieve. Until I see you next, I will be right here, ceaselessly Wishing on a Falling Star, hoping for brighter days in the uncertain tomorrow that lies ahead. Have a good Tuesday everyone. :)

Mizé January 20, 2009 6:23 PM

Hi Mariuca.
I know this positive tune and like it too. Dreams can come true, you bet! The problem is there´s always a downturn (the nightmares), that´s why we gotta be strong. If there´s something important missing in our lifes we got to chase it real hard.
I too need to cheer up, thanks for posting this song, I quite had forgot about.
Good Tuesday xxx

Metz January 21, 2009 12:00 AM

Hi Marzie,

Also, I am thankful that you allowed to have Empty Streets on your Entrecard widget today :) hope your week is doing well - mine is now after the song. You always brighten our day :)

Hola Mize, I am so happy to know u like this song too. Thanks so much for the pep talk here, I will continue searching for that missing piece Mize.

Hi Metz, thanks so much for that lovely comment, it made me feel better knowing you enjoyed this song and it helped lift ur spirits too!

Looks like we need to get away for a while and rejuvenate Metz! Maybe that's why we're feeling a little low and stressed, other than the work factor! Love and hugs. :):):)

eastcoastlife January 21, 2009 6:35 PM

I need a pick me up to. I've been whacked blue black by the Singapore blogosphere. :(

eastcoastlife January 21, 2009 6:36 PM

For starting an association of Bloggers? What do you think of this idea?

eastcoastlife January 21, 2009 6:41 PM

Bloggers are just so frightened they cannot have free speech or that their identities will be known.

Metz January 21, 2009 11:23 PM

Hi Marzie,

It's a wednesday and hope things are well :) thank you so much for having Empty Streets here. xoxo

Anonymous,  January 22, 2009 10:25 PM

So glad you decided to do a late Music Monday and hope it cheered you up. I haven't heard this song in years... I remember around the winter Olympics at least 10 years ago there was a U.S. skier (Picabo Street??) who used it as her theme song...
Love it!
