It's not that same moon light that we stare at when it looks amazing. It's not that same breeze we like to walk in when it blows just right. It's not that crazy little thought we have for someone we are attracted to when we want to hold that hand for a second. These are all things that take longer than a minute. These are moments we enjoy and want to take a long moment to feel and remember. It's the good things that we want to be a part of and feel good for. Why is it so hard for anyone to Take A Minute to say hi, or to just acknowledge a friendship they say is real. Why is it so hard to Take A Minute to respond to someone that really has not only worked so hard to do so much for you, but to be there in any which way shape or form for you. It's not how they did anything, it's the fact they took time and did something from the heart. And no, it's not about expectations on receiving anything back because it's about good energy. It's kinda like when someone bites your head off because of how you did something for them, instead of saying, " Hey thank you". Take A Minute to just say hey, or to let a person know that they exist. If someone truly cares as a friend, lover, family, or whatever, it only takes a minute to let a person know that they are special, or that they matter. It does not mean you have to answer the phone right away, or respond to a text right away, or anything like that. It just means that, just Take A Minute to return that call, that text, or just out of the blue send a text and let that person you say matters, know they matter, or that they exist. It's the little things that assumptions kill. By this I mean when someone assumes anything on what you say, do, act, meant to say, or whatever, and do not bother to know the facts. These are the things that can not only hurt someone, but can really damage a soul. For every action made towards someone, there is a reaction. If someone finally blows up, it's probably because they have had enough. No, it is not about blame because we are all wrong in our own way, and we all have been guilty of being improper. Take A Minute to really understand. Take A Minute to let someone know that they matter. Take A Minute to just stop with the BS. Just please Take A Minute to own up, because some of us really reacted to something that really damaged us, but yet our reaction is what we are blamed for. Just Take A Minute to understand why a person that you say you care about feels the way they do. Just take a minute and tell that friend you say is a friend and say, "Good to hear from you", or whatever. If you say it is real, then please just Take A Minute to show it. Yes, this is heart felt and real for a reason.
There are so many ways to look at situations that have effected our lives. My imperfections, your imperfection, our imperfection, how ever anyone wants to label it, these are the little things that will effect us along with everyone around us. I am so proud to be a person that can say "Hey, I have made mistakes, and I have been wrong". I won't get into that because I have talked about this before and we all know that none of us are perfect, and that we all make mistakes. Anyway, when someone has fed you lies and beliefs that bring out a negative energy, I must say, that ends up feeding those people right back, but only in a major way. Basically in a respectful way I am just trying to say that, if you feed someone bullshit, that bullshit will come right back at you and become present in a harsh way. I am sorry for the harshness in my blog, but I was just trying to say it in a way that kinda makes sense. With this being said, I know that as I move forward to a life of vision, creation, growth, belief, support, love, and passion, I am so honored to have my friends in my life (Bringing Me In) to always be there with a respect where communication can be had where favors are not thrown in your face, or assumptions are not the facts, or lies are an excuse because there are no excuses for lies. Again, I am far from perfect, but I will not assume, Lie, or throw favors I have done for someone in anyone's face. Thank you to all of you that are in my life for being real and always "Having Each Others Backs". Mainly, Thank you to my beautiful daughter. Daddy loves you very much and you are so amazing.
Bringing Me In
To my music, life and love.
Taking the steps to really push on everything I create. My daughter is the most amazing thing in my life and I love her so very much. She has always been, and always will be in the steps I take, and taking the steps to grow. Growing in this world of art and creation for which I ballet in the moment of truth to really capture what makes me happy. The music, the strength, the belief, the energy and so much more. I will always want to share what I am about as I am an artist that wants to be an artist with passion, and not a celebrity. The beauty within hearts glow like golden treasures beneath the the ocean surface that is seen for the first time. My heart will always glow with my all to share what I create because it is truly about sharing who I am.
Love is real and it is something I will never give up on no matter what. To be in that solo room with my creations is no different than having that solo love waiting to shine. I know it will be there one day and it will hop into my heart with open arms in knowing that no thunder storm is too strong to scare me from any possible moment in life.
It's taking the steps to want to know my passion will always be alive.
In the depths of my soul and everything I am about, I can really sit back and think about all the pain I have caused in life, and all the pain that has been given to me, but it does my energy no good indulge in this. Remembering what we may have gone through is ok because we always have these key notes to learn, but it is also important to not live those bad memories because this is what can really harm your soul. I have learned so much in my life, including situations that really bring out a negative person out of me, and these are the situations that can be harmful and make it seem as if we are just living a bad past. It's not a fault to anyone, it is just a situation that does not work with our chemistry with that particular person. I do know that I am very great-ful to have gone through what I did because it does let me understand that I did love and not just have a typical companion. Thank you to the energy that allowed me to be in this universe in so many ways. Thank you to the energy for knowing who I am and for being a grounded person. Thank you for allowing me to be real in every way, good or bad, how ever anyone wants to look at it. The point is, it happened for a reason and with this I know the facts and move forward. Move forward as the love in a violet sky after a rain storm waiting to thunder on our souls again.
To energy and to the violet love.
In thought we may think that everything is so perfect. In thought we may think that there should be no turmoil. In thought we may try so hard to think that our universe has a certain cycle. Our lives are an amazing cycle of energy for us to live with dreams, turmoil, stress, anger, happiness, sadness, confusion and more. It is up to each of us to fallow the correct path of these experiences we have had, and do what we can to help ourselves. Some situations will be worse than others, and some will not.
A person can remove any kind of memories he or she feels is necessary to help move on. You can grab those memories and store them away, you can throw them away, you can burn them, you can do what you want because there is no wrong way for a person to cleanse.
The important thing is that we move forward in our lives to be positive and healthy in every way we possibly can. I am truly great-ful for many lessons, many thoughts, many wishes, and honest emotions.
In thought we may feel confused,
but in reality, we are affected.
As I share my thoughts, I want to hear yours. As I open up, I want to know you. I am Charlie Rivero.
