When I was young. I loved to go to the bars and just drink and listen to the music/groups that were there or watched the drummer who enhanced up the beat for the young people to dance to. While I was there! ,did not concern myself with finding someone. I always thought to myself:” If it happens!” “It happens!” An interesting way of saying: “All things in time!”
Over the years as friends come and go! ,I have listened the many guys talk (If not boast & brag about!) this girl and I did this and that girl did that.
At the time! I knew little about what my fellow male friends did and the way they talked it sounded like they did not either. All by relayed messenger (other guy friends “+/-” on the fact/fiction!).
I had to be the only teen in America! Who’s mom allowed me to go get a copy of Playboy every month! And YES! I did look at the pictures. But! ,also read the Playboy advisor as well. Even to this day & beyond I will always call him my mentor because of his advisor section that responded to readers questions! But! How their response was to all them.,
But the thing, that still even to this day! Is how hard, difficult, complex in general! Relationships are these days! It will be a battle of the sexes. Women think/claim they know more than men! Men to the same as well.
The real problem between men and women is too much “EXCREMENT” is going around! But at the same time! There is another problem as well. And that is “TRADITION” How men seen and heard how dad treated mom! And how mom looked & felt after what dad did and their daughters on the same end as well also.
And the next thing in line is! Past relationships on both sides.
When it comes to the past! Let it GO! There is no!!!! Rewinds, instant replays, wayback machines, time tunnels, magical, mystical, cosmic, force that can nor ever will bring it back and change anything!
You learn from it and move on is all any of us can really do.
But! That does not mean to be bitter against any people/animals included!
Believe it or not! Like it or not!
Life itself! Always has! Always will! Be on great big classroom 24/7!
What you learn from it depends on you!
You can either let make you!
Or! Break you!
I remember this movie. When I was 8 yrs. old! When it came out I asked my mom about buying a 45 rpm of the song(s). She said “NO!”
Clearly! she did not care for them. Later she did buy me one 45 but it was that of George Martin and his instrumental versions of that boy & I love her. Then later she did buy me two 45’s. of the songs A Hard day’s night and the “B” side was I should have known better and the other And I love her and The “B” side was If I fell.
It was not until NBC decided to air the movie in primetime! I asked my mom if I could see it? Again! She said “NO”! It was not until cable came along that I did see it!
Chase down your passion like it’s the last bus of the night. ~Terri Guillemets
Is the one word that has many different meanings/definitions/interpretations to a lot of us.
But! Passion is the one word that I found that can separate us from them!
What is it that to some of us gives us that drive to achieve and accomplish things we like/live/love?
What is “YOUR” passion?
It can be a whole lot of things!
People, places, things & then some.
The people we like/love that are or have come and gone in and out of our lives.
Places that we have seen in some way book, film, magazine.
Or have been to or would love to be there/live there.
Things! That either drive us crazy!
Or can’t get enough of!
Food, comfort food, candy, decadent pleasures, fruits, liquors, drinks, even people!!!!
But! The one thing!
That I think that where I’m coming from is this!
That gives us the desire to drive us to do what we want to do is!
Our work! It may seem somehow strange to some people of what I’m talking about!
But to those who do know.
They are the one’s who have the passion & drive to do what is needed in life!
We all in our own way.
Want the things we do to have meaning in our lives.
This! In itself! Is so very hard to even describe!
But let’s think about what we want to do with our life?
When we were so very young!
What did we want to be when we grew up?
Doctor, police person, firefighter, paramedic (this was created long before the word ever was in our lingo!).
When I was in the 4th. grade!
The art teacher asked the class: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”
Everyone in the class drew a picture of what they wanted to be!
I drew a picture of me being a D. J.!
When the teacher showed the class my picture!
They ALL! Laughed!
But! The art teacher said: “Now! Wait a minute!”
“This is good!”
I think what he meant was: “There is someone who can think out of the box as to what s/he wants to do with their life!”
Do you see where I’m coming from on this?
This! Is what we do with our lives!
Go to school, get good grades, either go to a trade school or continue on through to high school, either find a good paying job, or on to college/university, find something that makes BIG bucks, find someone, get married, raise a family, save for retirement and wait for the grim reaper to come!!!!!!!
I define “PASSION” as being your own person.
You have to be.
It’s because of the way too many doomsayers, naysayers the people we know will tell us: “You can’t do that!” “That’s not you!”
These people get in the way of what it is that we want to do in our lifetime.
Then! It is ever so very true!
That we do live our lives in the shell of what we truly do want to become.
Forget the past. Accept your mistakes. Dare to speak the truth. Be honest to your commitment.
If you have ever felt such tremendous enthusiasm and desire for something that you would gladly spend all your waking hours working on it, that you would happily do without pay, then you have found your passion.
