You’ve Got the Love.


You've Got the Love by Candi Staton

Do you remember the last episode of Sex and the City? Season six; Episode 94 overall and 20 if you just count the episodes in between one season – An American Girl in Paris (Part Deux). I don’t know why but somehow during work this episode came to my mind. Not the actual episode but a certain moment. The final moment to be more precise. The one special moment where Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha are sitting at their regular restaurant talking about their days when all of a sudden the door opens and Carrie walks in; radiant with happiness to be back where she knows she is being loved by three wonderful ladies – her closest friends. At this moment the sounds of Candi Staton’s ‘You’ve Got the Love’ start to tune in and the last moments of a TV-Show that accompanied me throughout the best and worst of times; years showing me that love is everywhere and all around me. In fashion, in friends, in cities and in people you might accidentally meet along the way of living this fabulous life.

To put it in Carrie Bradshaw’s words, ‘Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.’

It isn’t just the scene itself or the music that makes me think a lot; it is the fact that I can relate to this scene for knowing that no matter where I go – every time I come back to the place I know the best even though I do not like it the most, if my friends are there everything will be alright and everything will be okay. So I dedicate this entry not just to my friends but to all of you who have got the love. The love of their dearest and closest friends.

So, if you are in desperate need of a song that makes you feel the love of those around you, I have something right here:

Candi Staton – You’ve Got the Love

Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you

Sometimes I feel like saying, “Lord, I just don’t care”
But you’ve got the love I need to see me through

Sometimes I see that the boy is just too rough
And things go wrong no matter what I do
Now it feels like life is just too much
You’ve got the love I need to see me through

Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you

Sometimes I feel like saying, “Lord, I just don’t care”
But you’ve got the love I need to see me through

Time after time I say, “Oh Lord what’s the use?”
Time after time I say, “This just won’t do”
But sooner or later in life the things you love you lose
Just like before, I know I call you

I can’t believe my palms, degrading friends of you
I can’t believe my fire, oh Lord, what must I do
I can’t believe what I caught up, master made me new
But you’ve got the love I need to see me through

Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you

Sometimes I feel like saying, “Lord, I just don’t care”
But you’ve got the love I need to see me through

You’ve got the love
You’ve got the love
You’ve got the love
You’ve got the love

I need to see me through
I need to see me through
I need to see me through
I need to see me through

You’ve got the love, yov’ve got the love, you’ve got the love
You’ve got the love, you’ve got the love, you’ve got the love

If you take a careful look around you might realize you too have got the love. Be happy about it. Celebrate it. But don’t just count on your friends, let them count on you too!

You’ve Got the Love.

Carrie Moments


Love never fails, does it? Mhmm... it does.

Recently I had the chance to think about Sex and the City a little bit more since I sometimes find myself taking forty minutes for a break from work every day to watch an episode and to get inspired by it. And since I went for a little walk yesterday at 10 pm and met up with a very very nice man I got to talk about Carrie and her messages and certain Sex and the City moments that still remain in our memory. Deciding that we both love the moment where Carrie and Aidan face each other and she begs him dearly to forgive him: ‘you have to forgive me. you have to forgive me. your have to forgive me. You – have – to – forgive – me!’ and seriously Aidan you simply had to because that moment was so real, so heartbreakingly honest and just so touching that one automatically remembers a moment where he had to beg, had to cry so dearly… you suddenly are being taken back to that certain moment where it all comes to an end with someone you truly fell in love with and even though there may have not been so much time spent together (for some reason people only seem to ask about the amount of time being in a relationship and not about the intensity of the love that holds the two of you together) you just feel the necessity of begging either for forgiveness or for not being left alone or for simply not walking away.

And so here I face myself and my inner demons and my heart and my mind and they finally decided to work together for a higher cause – preventing my heart from finally breaking and splitting and falling apart into thousands and millions of pieces that just can’t be mend by a weekend of liquor and months of draining your sorrows in writing or drinking or working or partying with your friends (or all at the same time) just to get over that vulnerable moment. Is there really a chance of being happily in love without feeling like losing something and then, what if you lose that special something (or someone) you had – it is breaking down, crying, falling apart all over again. Is that how life and love are supposed to live together? In my opinion that is not even the slightest bit close to a healthy symbiosis but to a way to ruin your inner piece by simply allowing someone else to touch you, to hurt you by presenting the most vulnerable of all parts of yourself – your heart. The thing that beats in your chest trying to keep you alive every single day – the one organ that tries to make you happy. And then you walk around breaking it just because you feel the need of falling in love in order to not being alone anymore? Does that makes sense to you?

To me it actually doesn’t and yet I face thousands of people still believing in love because they ask themselves – if love is not out there, if the one (THE ONE) is not out there, then what to live for? What to struggle for? What to aim for? What to look forward to? Settling down for something over an agreement – is that commitment. Real commitment in a sense Carrie and Mr. Big faced it or Charlotte and her Harry faced it or Miranda and her Steve faced it or even Samantha and her healthy libido faced it? Is something like that – the romantic, over produced, overrated love available in real life? Off screen and off screenplay?

Sex and the City 2 – the Trailers, the Excitement and Me getting Carried away


I just have to say woooohoooo today. It is sunny, it is bright and I am watching the two existing trailers for the second Sex and the City movie over and over again until I lose myself completely in the wonderful locations, the perfect outfits and the dream of being loved by a man until the end of time.
Let me tell you one thing, that is absolutely for sure – Sex and the City 2 is going to be THE summer movie every one is waiting for and I can’t wait anymore actually. I am nervous and excited and I want to be entertained by Carrie Bradshaw [Sarah Jessica Parker], Samantha Jones [Kim Cattrall], Miranda Hobbes [Cythia Nixon] and Charlotte York Goldenblatt [Kristin Davis], but unfortunately we all [well, at least all the Austrians] will have to wait for May, 27th to get ready, dress up and style up for attending the premiere of this wonderful, flashy, sexy, sassy and hilarious movie!

For all those, who – just like me – can’t wait anymore, I have both trailers to watch and enjoy and laugh and be entertained by, as some kind of gift. So lean back, push the button and enjoy 3 minutes and 52 seconds of fashion, love and sex.

So – wooohooo again for the last time and enjoy this wonderful sunny day by thinking of me and of course of Sex and the City 2.

XOXO
