I got sick of responding to people that talked shit about me as a promoter or as being “not legit” or “not taken seriously” in the music industry so I asked some people to start adding testimonials to my blog. When someone talks shit from now on I am going to say nothing at all, the only thing I’m going to do is send them the below link. There are 9 testimonials so far and I know it will only keep growing.
I have slaved the last 8 years of my life to make sure that kids have shows to go to and new bands to hear, a few haters aren’t going to stop me.
If I have learned anything from life so far, it’s that it’s the moments, THOSE moments, that truly make up life. No amount of wishing and hoping can ever equate to the pure joy that occurs when “those moments” do. They are completely unplanned and they occur so spontaneously, sometimes you don’t even realize what just happened until you look back. I’m not talking about bad days or hardships, I’m talking about those moments that bring pure joy to your life. The moment when you’ve noticed someone for the entire time you are at a party and didn’t have the courage to say anything to them, but they walk up and talk to you. The moment that you receive the first text from someone that makes your heart race. The first time that you stay up so late thinking about someone that you’ve lost more sleep than you can catch up on. Those moments when you are more caught up in sending goofy pictures to eachother just to make the other one smile that you don’t notice anything else in the world. Those moments where you catch yourself smiling and happy for no particular reason at all. The moment you start writing the first letter you want to write just so they have something to look forward too. Those moments where it’s obvious without even saying a word that you are both thinking the exact same thing. Those moments where literally no one and nothing else in the world matters at all but the other person. These moments, those moments, living in the moment… the purest joy that a human can experience.
There is no promise that those moments ever add up to anything more than moments, but sometimes they do. Those moments turn into dating or relationships, or even sometimes love. The best thing about those moments is they are so completely unplanned that you never know what could happen next but the beauty is you are so happy living in those moments that you don’t even care. There is no planning necessary, there is no end goal, you are happy and smiling and you don’t want to stop. Those moments that make your jaw sore from smiling all day and night. Those moments where you wake up smiling because the previous day was so great. And best of all… the moment where you realize that you’re writing a positive blog about a member of the opposite sex for the first time in a very, very, long time.
It’s those moments that get you through even the hardest days and past the largest obstacles and at the end of the day make you realize that all the hell you went through with other people and all the bad days are now just memories because you have those moments to hold on to now and nothing before those moments truly matters as anything more than a past memory.
Those moments… the ones you experience when you least expect them.
I know I have been guilty of this before, but the more I think about it, the more I have to ask…
Why put SO MUCH time and energy into talking negatively about someone when there are so many positive things you can talk about? If you don’t like someone, don’t say anything about them. And if you have to say SOMETHING about ANYTHING then go say something positive to someone else.
I’m going to be working on a lot of changes in my own life to be a better, even more positive person, and I hope the rest of you will too.
There is no time, place, or reason for hate in this world.
