It is so easy for people to love you at your best, but what happens when they see you at your worst? This is bound to happen eventually, even if it takes years, and if it does take years, then what? One can only hope that you get the support needed, but you never know – this is when true colours are shown.
I support the arts, I love the arts – I am artsy! What can I say, while I was working in the business world, I was always craving something else, “what was missing?” I would ask myself? As it turned out, it was my artistic side that was not being fueled.
Working with artistic types is so different. So much passion for what they do, in fact I have so much passion for what I do (or am trying to do) now.
Isn’t it surprising when people’s true colours finally reveal themselves. They could turn out so much better or worse than expected. Unfortunately it is normally worse.
As I add another year to this ongoing saga I like to call my life (yup, another birthday), I look back to see what I have learned and all the experiences I have had. Sometimes it is hard to see all the good that has happened because life has thrown so many challenges my way – I never imagined how much I could be tested over such a short period of time, “why me?” I often ask myself.
Some friends have commented that they don’t know how I have managed to keep it together, I also wonder myself. Sometimes I think about “Karma” (the idea of Karma I will leave for another day) and wonder if I must have been a complete a-hole in my past life, other times I think that I am being tested for something great – at this rate I expect that I am going to save the world sometime in the future!
We are put on this earth to live, but what does that mean? What is life about? You can get very philosophical when answering this question, but for me, I like to keep it simple!
We are here for a finite time, so what do we want to accomplish? If you have been reading my blog and even following it, you already know that I want to live, enjoy, experience and do good … surrounded by friends and family.
I hope to live my life and make a difference. That is, to make a difference to the world, the people in my life, and the people that I come in contact with. I want to leave the world a better place.
For our annual guys weekend away, this year we decided to go to Coachella Valley Music Festival in Palm Springs, California – and it was hot, hot, hot, it reached 107 degrees Farenheit! This place was incredible, I don’t know how many people went but I would guess at over 80,000 and the place was organized so well. There must have been over 60 bands playing over the 3 days with a very diverse range of music from EDM to rock, hip hop and rap. There really was something for everybody.
I have been told that I am too idealistic, and a dreamer. Is it wrong to be this way? This is in relation to all aspects of my life, whether it be relationships, friendships or work.
