I have a secret. I can almost promise that you have one too. I have a story.. and well, I think you get it. Secrets run deeper than we mean them too, even running into secrets which are no longer known even to us. To remain in a state of consciousness where one knows themselves that fully.. Hmm.. I, personally have too busy of a life for that.

Life is a story. Love is a dream. Challenges are brutal. Yet, somehow it’s all connected. This intense circus of life, which is cold and cruel, yet so beautiful and lovely. How can such a contradictory thing end up being so beautiful? How can such a thing even exist? How come my brain never seems to stop running?

Howevever, it doesn’t. My head is always spinning with some idea, some song lyric or character idea, some thoughtful smile of something my love has done, or banging my head trying to get to sleep.. there’s always something there. This is where blogs are useful. Organizing and sorting through thoughts, hearing others input, or simply being lazy for not being able to keep in touch with people when you’re too busy.

You could say life is interesting. I honestly feel like I’m at the very beginning of everything. Life has been nothing but discovery lately, and I’ve been enjoying every second! Although.. it can be slightly frustrating at times because it’s harder for people to relate. After my love and I moved here, life became insane, in the very best of ways. We moved here without a penny to our name (literally.. so poor). Never before had I had to worry about where my next meal was going to come from, and all of a sudden I did. Without Ryan, I wouldn’t have gotten through anything. Having a companion, a love and a partner is so important and SO relevant to everything that’s happened. It took us a while to find jobs, but the universe always comes through with providing what you need when you need it, and such has been the way with us. I now have a piano which I didn’t have to pay a penny for, a record deal, and a plan for life. Ryan is finding the same.

Mostly importantly, I’ve been getting over stuff. Things which I haven’t been able to figure out for years are finally evaporating.. into a state where I am starting to feel real happiness. I kind of have a perma-smile these days and I’m very happy about it. Life has been hard, so hard. Some of it was brought upon myself, others were definitely influenced by external forces. All in all, it wasn’t any easier to get over.

I don’t know how to handle negativity anymore, because it simply doesn’t exist. There are good days, and there are bad, but the good definitely outdo the bad. Especially after everything which has happened to me, everything which has happened to us. I feel like it’s finally our time to shine. In every way he is my match, he is my love.

He helped me to get over the past men in my life. The sick, twisted, mind-game playing, barely human men who have existed basically my whole life. For the women who are reading this, sometimes one of the most important things you can learn is that there ARE good men out there. They deserve far more credit than we give them. For in my hands, and in my heart, I’m thankful to have one of those men.

Sometimes things just click. That’s how I’ve been able to get over things lately. I’ve realized why certain patterns have persisted, why others haven’t, and that I don’t want it there anymore. After a while negativity can become like a drug and you need your injection. You need to create something in order to keep your adrenhaline going, to keep the rush going to your head. It’s hard to think that there are other feelings which feel not only this good, but better! Things like singing, dancing, loving, and living. It’s hard when there’s so much negativity influencing everything in life. Little does the media know, this world is full of more good than we could possibly know.

In dealing with negative, you harm yourself. You truly do. In forcing other people to believe as you do, you also harm yourself because you’re letting your ego get in the way. In juding another person, you harm yourself because you’re making yourself out to be better than you really are. We’re not perfect. I know this, you know this.. so let’s stop pretending like we have to be. This is the biggest thing I’ve learned lately. Just be, be happy, let life flow… it gets better than you could possibly imagine! Love yourself, be comfortable in your skin, for at the end of the day that’s all that really matters. You can’t please everyone, and through loving yourself others will look up to you. You’ll be able to be more true as a friend, more loving as a lover, whatever you want to be, really. There are no limitations when you realize that you are completely perfect the way you are.

These thoughts, and many others are the ones I want to share with the world. In my decision to become a musician I’ve realized that I quite possibly could have the potential to really affect people. With power comes great responsiblity. On the other hand, I could record my CD and never be heard of again, but if I don’t try I will never know. I would love to share messages with the world. I’d like to write music that changes lives, and soothes hearts. I’d like to create a relationship through my music with many people. This blog is going to be used to write my thoughts of my journey, give vague descriptions of the meanings behind the songs I’m writing at the time, etc. That’s the cool part about a blog is that it’s whatever you want it to be. So, this is me. Perhaps I’ll find secrets, and hopefully I’ll learn things I never thought possible through this journey.

Peace to you,
