Throwback Thursday… on a Friday

numbscreengrabOkay, further to the last “Confessions” post… here’s another one… Remember when David first told his story about how Numb came about and uttered those terrifying words, “I called my manager and said, ‘I don’t think I wanna do this anymore'”? ….

*sorry, Iย need a moment*



…. Anywayyyys, ever since then, I’ve wondered when that was exactly… so I think it must have been just before these tweets happened, so in the summer of 2014.

Also, check out these tweets… Trent Dabbs was referencing a song that has “other things in sight in mind” in the lyrics… so some other amazing song besides Numb.





Here’s my playlist again for Numb (I just keep it going in one of my tabs with the sound turned off… because I have it going in 3 browsers, lol #freak)

File under AWESOME!!!!!

This is Bentley. How does she look with my glasses? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Some of you may have noticed that I took a few weeks off from social media. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ It was extremely helpful and allowed me to get a better understanding of myself and where I am at in life. It's so easy to get caught up in thinking about whether every moment in my life would be pleasing to everyone. Sometimes I get caught up to see if I am having enough interesting moments and witty remarks that will catch enough attention from people. I start rating my self-worth and how good my life is based on if someone chooses to look at my picture and like it or not who after 1 1/2 seconds most likely moves onto thinking about something else and looking at other photos and comments. I feel like I get caught up and obsessed with seeing if they approve or not the moment with comments and believe their comments and likes suddenly determine whether my life is great or not for where I am or what I am doing in the photo. It interferes with me being in the moment and enjoying where I'm at both physically and with my mindset, because I feel like I have to keep finding moments that will get enough people to look and "like." I may try to take more time without the temptation of social media and seeing how many likes I can get from a thought, picture, or video, and I would encourage you all to do the same and see what things you can learn about yourself that you may have forgotten while trying to get others' approval. I will make sure to post more though and find the balance of sharing without caring too much. Haha. I guess it is a pull and tug that we all face throughout our lifetimesโ€”not worrying what others think about us and letting that form our identity while having the courage to share what we learn and who we are. Know that a new song will be coming out in just a short time, and I'm so excited to share it with you! I will keep you all posted. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ #dog #time #socialmediabreak

    Hahaha…”And now his hair is curly and blonde”. Do love the sunglasses clad dog picture. Yep, so nice to hear from the man. I think as David gets older he won’t worry so much about others’ opinions or whether or not they approve of everything he may do or say on social media. When you’re old like me you learn to just let it roll off you for the most part. it’s “to each his/her own”, life gets too short! He’ll find that balance of sharing without caring too much, ha, as he wisely said.
    Well, new music is definitely on the way and I’m glad he is excited to share it with everyone. Have a strong feeling it will be something excellent..
    I remember those tweets TOfan, maybe now he has fine tuned all those great new songs and we will be blessed with them soon….next few months…..this year. ๐Ÿ™‚

    David’s “soon” and my “soon” seem to be two different things. Hopefully we will get the album this year! Bring back the old David that released an album per year. Well, that David is gone but I would be happy with cover albums. He makes any cover song his own.

    Yay David is alive and there will be New Music Soon! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Bentley’s adorable, is she David’s?

  4. TOfan says:

    Oh, and I had a dream where I heard the new song … ON THE RADIO! ๐Ÿ˜Š It was Say Me and it sounded amazing!… just throwing that out there. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good dream TOfan! Would love to hear D’s songs on radio….so more people could enjoy. Say Me (and I’m Ready) are great songs, beautiful. That new album will be something special.
