My Real Moment of Feeling Lost

I want to open and share something with you.  Recently, I was feeling down and having a moment that I felt lost and blocked.  I just felt like I didn't have the energy inside to move forward.  Things just seemed like a mountain.  I felt overwhelmed, exhausted and fatigued.  I'm always on the go and sometimes I just get lost in being so busy that I lose sight of things at times.  

I'm in Nashville at the moment and when I met with one of my mentors yesterday, she made a statement that really touched me.  She had no clue of how I was feeling so I knew this statement was meant for me to hear.  She said, ''it's ok not to smile and be positive all the time.  It's ok to have a moment when you feel down.  Embrace it, go through it and then get out of it.''  Those were the words that I needed to hear.  So I took what I was feeling and started writing, writing, writing.  Song after song.  I'm starting to feel a little better, not 100 percent, but I will get there.  I thought I'd share how I was feeling with you all because this may help someone else who is going through something similar.  Thanks for listening and reading this.  

Much love ---- Steve Ryan

Should I Buy My Lady A Diamond Ring?

I’m just sitting here on this endless delay
Allowing my time to flow away
I’m thinking about that April spring
Should I buy my lady a diamond ring?

There is nothing here that’s in this world
That is better than my special girl
So it’s time to let my true love sing
Should I buy my lady that diamond ring?

She’s been there for me through thick and thin
And her patience with me, it never caves in
It’s time to show my appreciation
By giving her my full dedication

I will keep our flame forever lit and from dying
Whatever it takes, I will keep on trying
This isn’t some line that is used for lying
Her unconditional love for me, is so inspiring

It feels so good to make her feel wanted
She deserves the best, she deserves to flaunt it
I’ve decided to make a go at this theme
It’s time to buy my lady a diamond ring.

Can a flame stay burning without feeding it?
Can a flower stay growing without being grounded?
So I can’t expect my lady to be any different
I must nurture her and care and show her I mean it

Besides, what is this thing called money
It can’t feed you like milk and honey
For it cannot be compared to love
And you can’t take it with you to the sky above

So instead of holding on to it in a cheap way
Why not use it to show I want my lady to stay
This is why I’m doing the right thing
By buying my lady that diamond ring
