This is who I am, you can like it or not

I've been listening to the new Madonna album quite a bit lately and one song just jumps out at me. It's not one of her very best but her lyrics just resonate.

At work and even douring downtime, it's very hard to keep your perspective. Sure, there are moments where you just have to shut up and agree with your client and all that, but there are other times where you have to make a definate stand. I interact with many people on a daily basis but the one thing that I always try to do is keep it real.

Which is why I dont' make it a habit to: (1) pander to foolishness, (2) praise un-necessarily (3) make promises I cannot keep. Is it hard to do? Yes. Very much so, because sometimes I just tend to agree with people just to be nice. It's a hell lot easier. However, people seem to think that they can step all over you because you don't have a mind of your own. So what happends when you speak your mind? Well, that's a double-edged sword too. Because then, I earn the title of this blog. And some people don't take that very well too...just ask my mum.

But just what about that Madonna song that caught me? It's her phrasing, so you can say whatever you want or think whatever you want, I'll just be, well...me.

Like it or Not

You can call me a sinner
and you can call me a saint
Celebrate me for who I am
Dislike me for what I ain’t
Put me up on a pedestal
Or drag me down in the dirt

Sticks and stones will break my bones
But your names will never hurt
I’ll be the garden, you’ll be the snake
All of my fruit is yours to take
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow
Because

This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I’m never gonna stop, no no

Cleopatra had her way
Mata Hari tooW
Whether they were good or bad
Is strictly up to you

Life is a paradox
And it doesn’t make much sense
You can't have the femme without the fatale
Please don’t take offense

Don’t let the fruit rot under the vine
Fill up your cup and let’s drink the wine
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow
Because

This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I’m never gonna stop, no no, you know (2x)

I’ll be the garden, you’ll be the snake
All of my fruit is yours to take
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow
Because

This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I’m never gonna stop, no no, you know (2x)

And the best of all - OMG...I made company!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
