Can I get a refill?

Have any of you ever had one of those days that you never wanted to end? I certainly have. I’m talking about the days that seem to go so perfectly. These days are filled with joy. love, peace, and great food. Pictures may capture a piece of the moment, but they don’t fulfill the exact “essence” of the day. Every day in life brings about something new. You can not repeat a day. That is why it is critical to embrace every second you have. Tomorrow is not promised for anyone. Elle Varner has a song called “Refill”. This song is about how she goes to a bar and meets a very intriguing guy. She wants to keep talking to the guy so she sings “Can I get a refill?” In this scenario, she meant metaphorically. can she get another dose of his love, attention, and spark. Although I have never been in a serious romantic relationship, I have had guys that I had romantic interests with. I can definitely attest to Varner’s sentiment of asking for a “refill”. So how does one get a refill of the things that you love? Well I’ll tell you.

  1. Cherish every moment. As I’ve mentioned above you will never get to repeat any day in your life. But you can keep memories through pictures, videos, and scrapbooking, or journaling. However, sometimes its just nice to live in the present. I remember when I went to Beyonce’s Mrs. Carter World Tour concert, at one point she told us that we should put our phones away. Instead of recording or taking pictures, she wanted us to live in the now.  Every now and then when you are having a fun time, just stop to embrace what is happening instead of trying to capture it all.
  2. Make time for the people you love. If you are trying to get a “refill” of someone then you must spend time with them. So, take that phone call. Skype a loved one. Plan for a dinner date. Whatever you do, try to get some good communication with them.
  3.  Schedule fun time. My mom always told me that “All work, no play makes Jack a dull boy. This adage basically goes by mine and Wiz Khalifa’s motto “Work Hard, Play Hard”. Yes, being productive is great. However, it is so important to create time for yourself. For example, writing in my blog is my free time. Also, I enjoy writing songs. Continually, I love hanging out with friends and being social. All of these things help me relax. I can’t wait to get a “refill” of these activities.
  4.  Be repetitive. With this tip you might be wondering, why would I want to be repetitive? Well, if you want a “refill” on the things that you love, then why not repeat them often? Maybe you might make a weekly day for “date night”. Maybe you have a few days in the week where you go shopping. Scheduling fun activities multiple times throughout the month prevents you from experiencing withdrawls.

Lastly, I’m going to leave  the video of the song “Refill”. I hope you enjoyed this post. Remember to like, comment, and share.
