Thoughts and Happenings…

Future, Past, NOW…

Ok so this is the last full week of school, Praise the Lord. I am so ready to be done with this semester. I mean not so much the hanging out with friends or anything cause that is going to be really sad to let them all go, but the school part YES I am def. ready. This summer is going to be great I am staying in Nashville, going to be working an awesome job, (I would say what it was but I haven’t really gotten hired yet) and hopefully going to be able to write a lot of new songs during these summer weeks. But I know I need to buckle down and finish what needs to be finished, and not worry about what tomorrow holds b/c today is what is important. Just always remember that it is never great to dwell on the past or future cause you have an opportunity to make NOW great and if you look to far ahead or behind you will miss so much opportunity.

Stupid Over and Over Again…

Ok so some of you might know that I separated my shoulder back on December 31. Well it started to get better after about 4 weeks right, and I was able to start working out again and started to stunt again and everything was great. Well about 4 weeks ago something happened again. My guess is I re-separated it doing a mixture of things, from stunting to working out ect., which sucks. So I have been trying to take it easy till yesterday when my competitiveness got a hold of me. NOT SO GOOD. Yeah it is really sore today and I am kicking myself for doing it. Of course I am not going to tell anyone unless they read this post (sorry friends and mom who told me not to do anything) because then all I would hear is, “I Told You So”. Yeah Yeah I know so you don’t have to say it.

But have you ever wondered what makes people do stupid things like that. what makes them go after something so hard that they don’t care how bad it hurts they just want to be apart of it. I am still trying to figure that out myself. I mean I know kind of where I am coming from when I do stupid things like that but in the back of my head I know if I rest and take it easy everything will get better. That not only goes for broken bones, aches and pains, but I think possibly even in relationships and hardships anyone might be going through.

I know what I should do and that is not do anything anymore (for my shoulder that is) but it is just so difficult not using it. But yeah so I am sure I will find myself being stupid all over again…

Hurts Not to Tell…

You know the times when you want to say something so bad but then you don’t and you let it fester inside of you and it starts to hurt. Yeah well I feel like that a lot. Whether it involves girls, friendships or most of the time just having a bad day. I have seen in the past though in my own life that every time I decide to say something to someone I start to feel better. You see though, I have a little problem not opening up to people in a deep way, at first. I mean there are those select few that I have expressed some stuff too but you have to earn it from me. I usually am the one to listen, you know. Yeah I love to listen and help others with their problems. Not like I am a great advice giver or anything though. But back too that stuff you keep inside, yeah we all do it I know I am not the only one. I am sure you are going through something right now you wish you could tell someone or express. I know of a friend that was going through a hard time with a significant other and I felt their pain and a way I thought would be a good way to express it was through just writing, so some of the words of their delima went like this:

“I’ll follow you, where did you go, you stole my heart, I feel an empty part inside, I’ll hold onto, those words I knew, you used to say,  but will never be the same”

As I am sure you have seen too there are many ways to express things inside without shouting it out at someone. But for me the best result is to let it out in some way, even if you get some negative feedback, just let out and then let go…
