A Life Less Ordinary

April 18th, 2009 at 10:53 pm

Need some uplifting in these times of apparent doom and gloom ??

A 47 yr old Scottish woman, unemployed but looking, who has never been married. In fact, she's never been kissed:

A cell phone sales man from Wales who has always struggled with self-confidence issues:

And this is just something I can't help but share with the female bloggers here:

Money can't buy what these guys have.

    I've been following the story of Susan Boyle... what an AMAZING voice and a touching story. Have you heard her sing Cry Me a River? I like it even better than I Dreamed the Dream. I do hope she wins and gets the chance she deserves.

    Paul Potts and Connie Talbot are also very talented.

    found it !!

    Amazing !! To think she hasn't made it big in the last 10 years !!... The world is a crazy place....

    When I hear her sing Cry me a River, I imagine her as a voluptous 50s style Diva.... so true what they say... can't judge a book by its cover...

    She has such great composure and timing... yet is still an amateur !! wow

    I love Susan Boyle's story (can't watch the youtube though, we're on dial-up). You can have big, amazing changes come to your life at any age. I need to keep reminding myself of this...

    Ah yes, I've seen them all before, and loved each and every one of them.

  5. Apprentice Bliss Hunter Says:

    Haved watched Susan's again and again... in fact I'm watching it now.. :-) hehe

    Ok... after having watched Susan Boyle's video maybe 900 times... I have realised:

    1. She may just be for me, as for millions others, that "something" people sometimes spend a lifetime waiting for.... the thing that slams the gear-stick in their brain/soul into "Drive" as opposed to coasting through life.

    2. She has the talent to be the biggest star of this decade worldwide...

    I don't know how true this is, but I heard elsewhere that she lived in relative seclusion for years, in a depression, taking care of her ailing mother, while having no personal life of her own. If it is true, it's quite inspiring, don't you think? Considering where she may have started from, though the same rumor mill have said that she has been singing for quite some time, even if it isn't professionally.

  8. Apprentice Bliss Hunter Says:

    My take from the rumour mill.. this may be true or false...

    There was problems during her birth - she was temporarily oxygen deprived which led to a mild learning disability. She was bullied at school for being "slow".

    She was never part of the "cool" gang. She came from a pretty big family and she was the youngest child. Her mother had her when she was in her 40s.

    When her siblings left her family home, she stayed to look after her mother until she died at the age of 91. She still lives in the family home with her cat.

    She has sung in, and won, local competitions - how could she NOT sing with a voice like that ? She recorded "Cry me a river" for a Millenium Charity CD in 1999. No other recordings. She has had a few singing lessons but it still definitely an amateur as opposed to a pro....

    In fact she's unemployed and volunteers as a church worker.

    All history now...

    I can see her out-grossing Celine Dion - she'll see hundreds of millions of pounds during her lifetime - not that she's interested in that .. but still.
