Deep thoughts..

There are times in our life that we tend to ignore the small things around us. Unknowingly, this small things tends to build up and just burst in front of our face. When things like that happen, we are on the blindside and we have no idea how worst the situation is already is. We all try our best to resolve or at least identify the issue but like a wild fire, it's a little too late to extinguish it. A little too late, but still we can do something about it. We come up with all kinds of tactics and rationalization to solve or at least have an idea whats happening. Some say that Time heals everything.. in most cases it does.. but not to some. Sometimes time suppresses things or situation like a pressurized can thrown into a fire or put inside a microwave oven. Even though time already healed the wounds, the scars remains.  I guess we just need to take extra care to prevent the scar from being opened again.

It never occurred to me that I will be in a situation that I would give up or thinking of giving up. I used to be optimistic but there are times that I don't see the light at the end of the tunnel. All I can see is darkness, slowly consuming me.. Clouding my thoughts and bringing my greatest fears into life. It's like running on a treadmill and there's no slow-down button or stop button. In other words, I would just stop functioning.

It may take some time for us to completely recover from this experiences. If were lucky, a day or two or worst, longer than that. The bottom line is we need to be strong and believe that everything will alright. Believing is the key.. Trust is the keyhole.. and love is the huge door..

A close friend of mine ask me to write something happy or funny. I will definitely write my happy thoughts soon.. Soon my friends.. very soon.. =)

When I woke up yesterday (probably morning for my friends in the U.S.), I was a little irritated. It's that I remember my wife saying to me "Somebody woke up on the wrong side of the bed..". So, I tried to compose myself while checking for some email from my wife or friends. I opened the window and it was humid outside and I know I'm going to be miserable night.  I grabbed my phone and plugged the speakers and I was playing Jack Johnson while wondrin' what to do. Slowly, my mood began to lighten up and I just noticed that I was already singing along.  I guess that's what other people call getting your groove back.

Music affects majority of my mood, it will either help me or make me worst. So far listening to my favorite artist helps me relax and I bet that my wife would be enjoying the music of Jack Johnson and Ben Harper. I listen to all types and genre of music and I know how to appreciate a good music. For me, you can have the dvd and television just leave me the radio or my phone. I grew up in a family of musicians ( that's on my mom's side of the family) and the 80's music was my first and still favorite. I just wish that the musicians or bands nowadays would still make quality music like back in the 80's. Bands nowadays no longer have that spark and creativity of the 80's bands. I have some handful bands that I can consider buying their records and listening to it but other than that.. ummm... NO WAY!! I'd rather listen to a jackhammer or a roaring ferrari engine than to listen to their gut-tearing screams and ear busting music. If I could turn back the clock, I wouldn't hesitate going back to that wonderful, energetic and colorful era.. the 80's. I have nothing against other genre but I just found out that you can form a band as long as the members can scratch the living hell of a guitar and they can all scream.

Music speaks a billion language and if we just try to listen and understand it, we could learn a lot from it. Where have all the good bands go? Wherever they are now, they will always stay in my heart.. =
