Swagger Video of the Day – p!nk Funhouse

p!nk – Funhouse

I dance around this empty house
Tear us down, throw you out
Screaming down the halls
Spinning all around and now we fall

Pictures framing up the past
Your taunting smirk behind the glass
This museum full of ash
Once a tickle, now a rash

This used to be a Funhouse
But now it’s full of evil clowns
It’s time to start the countdown
I’m gonna burn it down, down, down
I’m gonna burn it down

9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, fun

Echoes knocking on locked doors
All the laughter from before
I’d rather live out on the street
Than in this haunted memory

I’ve called the movers, called the maids
We’ll try to exorcise this place
Drag my mattress to the yard
Crumble, tumble house of cards

This used to be a Funhouse
But now it’s full of evil clowns
It’s time to start the countdown
I’m gonna burn it down, down, down

This used to be a Funhouse
But now it’s full of evil clowns
It’s time to start the countdown
I’m gonna burn it down, down, down
I’m gonna burn it down

9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, fun

I’m crawling through the doggy door
My key don’t fit my life no more
I’ll change the drapes, I’ll break the plates
I’ll find a new place, burn this fucker down

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, da, da, da, da

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
(9, 8)
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
(7, 6)
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
(5, 4, 3)
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
(2, 1)

This used to be a Funhouse
But now it’s full of evil clowns
It’s time to start the countdown
I’m gonna burn it down, down, down

This used to be a Funhouse
But now it’s full of evil clowns
It’s time to start the countdown
I’m gonna burn it down, down, down
I’m gonna burn it down

You know I’ll be over there
Yup I’ll be over there

I’ll be hitting all the spots that you aint even know was der
Ha and you don’t even have to ask twice
You can have my heart or we can share it like the last slice
Always felt like you was so accustomed to the fast life
Have a nigga thinking that he met you in the past life
Sweat pants, hair tied, chillin with no makeup on
That’s when youre the prettiest I hope that you don’t take it wrong You dont even trip when friends say you aint bringin Drake along
You know that I’m workin I’ll be there soon as I make it home
And she a patient in my waitin room

Keeping a marriage

Keeping a marriage

42-17800257

The wedding vow goes, “to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and cherish; from this day forward until death do us part”. Joined in holy matrimony and blessed by the well-wishes of friends and families, a couple enters a marriage, not knowing the prevailing obstacles and the tribulations that would shake the very foundations of their relationship. Somewhere along the way, love transforms into hatred, happiness becomes anger and a marriage falls apart.

Keeping a marriage going is no easy feat. Love and affection can dissipate over the years and one must constantly work at sporadic enthusiasm to keep the flame torching. An everlasting marriage takes work and a perfect marriage doesn’t just happen. It is important that you try to save your marriage before it goes up in shambles.

1) Communication

SwaggerThere’s a common phrase, “I can’t fix the problem until I know what the problem is”.  The saying is veracious. Until you let your feelings known, until you let the other party know what’s bothering you, he or she cannot resolve the issue. No matter is too trivial if it’s affecting your marriage. Is his snoring keeping you up at night? Does he leave the toilet seat up?  Is her spending too much time with her male colleagues irking you? Are her words emasculating you?

Iron out these issues and work at removing these blemishes. Over time, little pet peeves can become exasperating and intolerable. Avoid using hurtful words and speaking to your loved one in an accusatory tone. Instead, talk about how his/her actions have affected you.

2) Revisit memorable places

Literally take a walk down memory lane and revisit the places where it all began; the first kiss landmark, your first outdoor romp. Go on a second honeymoon! Relive these important moments of your life and rediscover what you have lost. The familiar environment will help jog your memory and make you realize why it is you fell in love with your spouse. Remember the faithful promises you made to each other right there and then.

3) Sex

If laughter is the best medicine in life, then sex is the best remedy to an estranged marriage. Most marital problems stem from a lack of intimacy and a seemingly loss of interest in each other. The physical act of fornication helps to tear down any insurmountable barrier. Sex in itself is a form of communication. If you are currently going through a dry streak, perhaps it’s time to initiate a flaming hot session.

Talk about your secret fantasies and implore your spouse to try it. As long the two of you draw a boundary, there is no fetish too perverse. Be sure to come up with a code word. Try a new sex position or try it somewhere else other than the bedroom! Play dress up; hey, you might be under-qualified, but it doesn’t mean you can’t pull off a doctor’s outfit!

You will welcome the renewed interest in your spouse and find that the fatal attraction has been restored.

4) Counseling

Has your marriage reached the verge of no return? Some professional advice from a third party could prove to be beneficial. A marriage therapist is able to present an objective stance and opinion into your marriage, something your beer buddies or ex bridesmaids can’t.  Sometimes you need a little prodding before you would get to the root of the problem. A discerning marriage counselor knows how to evaluate the differing perspectives and he can offer a solution.

Counseling also helps you to make measurable and realistic progress. Be sure to take your sessions seriously; heed your therapist’s advice and do what he asks of you. If he assigns you a task, complete it assiduously.

Positive Attitude

Positive attitude

SwaggerThere is a population of people who has only enjoyed a modicum of success in their entire life. All their life, they have never relished the sweet taste of success. Often passed over when it comes to job promotions, some of them resign to their fates while some blame it on their lucks. Some of them put the idea of success on a pedestal and choose to believe that success is elusive and will never be attainable. Does this sound like you?

Well, moping and lamenting about your incompetence certainly isn’t going to help inch you toward greatness. Take a page from successful, swagger moguls; they did not become successful overnight and they definitely had their share of trials and tribulations. Setbacks are aplenty in the pursuit of success. Just what exactly tide them over?

A positive attitude. Attitude is the final ingredient in your recipe for success. All the money and resources in the world can only get you so far in life. You can only possess swagger when you adopt a positive mindset. Already think it’s impossible? That’s not helping! Believe it or not, cultivating a positive attitude is as easy as a walk in the park. It is as simple as plastering a smile over your face. You just have to say YES (but tread carefully on that fine line between being positive and being exploited for other’s devious means)!

1) Do not cave in to your worst critic

All of us recognize the inner voice that tramples on us when we’re already down and crushed. It is the same voice that screams at us for succumbing to the temptation of a cake, the folly of a one-night stand and etc. Believe it or not, our worst critics are not our bosses or our loud, pansy gay friends who disparage our fashion faux pas (of whom we love, by the way). We are our own worst critics.

There is a difference between learning from past mistakes and dwelling on them. The latter is a barrage of harsh criticisms upon self, the festering feeling of rancor and not to mention guilt. While it is absolutely normal to be upset with yourself, being emotionally invested in your mistakes does nothing for you. Consequentially, dwelling on past mistakes and eating yourself up will only leave you stranded; you are stuck and you do not know how to move forward.

Learning from past mistakes entails self reflection; finding out the whys that caused the problem and your part in it. A foolish mistake is only one that is made twice. Realize that everyone makes mistake, and everyone, from your unusually well-kept bosses to your seasoned receptionist who boasts of her 120 WMP, has at one point, screwed up in their work. Do not linger in misery; cheer up and move on.

2) Stop comparing yourself to others

You can’t change the girth of your goods or the size of your brassiere measurements (not least the real ones), so stop comparing yourself to others.  When you juxtapose yourself with Swaggerothers, be it your monthly salary or the number of houses you own, only two things come out of it. It is either a self-fulfilling prophecy or a self-destructive route that you take.

If the subject is a lesser image of you, comparing yourself with him can be a very gratifying, but almost pointless experience. Sure, you might be taller, better looking and more experienced, but what you’re doing here is lowering your standards. You become complacent and you settle for less. You might be the ruler in your office, amongst your cliques, but you will never make it once you’re out of your comfort zone.

Constantly pitting yourself against someone of a higher caliber can also affect you in negative ways. You are teetering very carelessly between jealously and envy. With the former, you will constantly be angry at your seemingly less privileged situation. Instead of looking for a way out, you blame all the macro factors for your lack of success. You blame your parents for not being wealthy and influential; you blame your luck, your life and everything else that you have no control over.  After all that finger-pointing, nothing gets done, anyway.

Of course, a little envy can’t hurt. It’s good to have someone you wish to emulate in life; someone you look up to and be the benchmark of success you want to achieve.  Learn from her or get her to share some tips with you if she is willing.

3) Start believing in yourself

Ever wanted to pursue a career switch but find the words of your detractors and inner demons restraining? Do their words suffocate you and make you doubt yourself? Are your hopes and dreams thrown into disarray when someone speaks ill of you? Are your plans easily thwarted by the opinions of others? All of these stem from a lack of self-belief.

Sure, it is a humbling experience and coping with criticism is one way to improve oneself. You can be sure of the outpour of cynicism and relentless belittling of your capabilities. Take what you will of the feedback and unless they’re constructive in nature, pay little heed to them. As swagger people, it is likely that you already have a strong sense of self.

What you lack in, you make up for in some other aspect. You might not be the most intelligible person when it comes to Mathematics, but the paintings you draw are Picasso-exquisite.  In order to believe in yourself, you first need to know your strengths and capitalize on it. If you think you have a talent in an area, chances are the same sentiments have already been echoed and concurred by many.

You just need to make the first step and the rest of the cards will fall in place.
