I am laying down while I write this tumultuously emotional note, reminiscing on my past, present, and soon to be future. Sorry if this is scattered my mind is everywhere with change. I am leaving very early tomorrow morning, traveling for a few hours to an art school I've dreamed up countlessly, in the heart of an historic city. For the next four years I will learn how to be a better artist/person and (hopefully) meet new people and places along the way. Venturing away from the little northern city that I have called home my entire life is no little ordeal. It is utterly sad leaving my family, dogs, rooms, and memories (lights of my life tbh) behind for the better future. It is so hard for me to leave the things in my life that have grown to be a part of me and the realization of this inevitability is even more disheartening. I have come to learn however that I have grown out of this place and am ready to start fresh. I crave things that this city doesn't have. I want to fall in love with new places, people, things, and earth again. I want to learn new lessons that will be so impactful/useful in my artistic career path as well. Still, I have so many nerves when it comes to new beginnings and starting over. I just need to dive in head first with positivity, love, and optimism and trust everything will be alright. Here is to new art, happiness, beginnings, and gratitude. I will never forget my past, as it has made me who I am today. I will forever be grateful to my twin @brendon_parrish (who has literally been next to me since the womb) for being a life long best friend. My dogs for showing me love is in the little things like night-time cuddles and morning-time kisses. My mom, dad, and siblings for supporting me. I could thank so many people in my life but I would like to keep this semi short. I just wanted to embrace the future, no matter how scary it can be. To love and a lifetime of student debt ❤️❤️❤️
Title: Like I Do Now.
It's been a very off week for me (and it's only Wednesday, uh oh).This is based on an argument I had with my mom about a month ago. She made a totally valid point but at the same time, I was just at a loss for what I actually should do. I find myself very jaded and emotionally exhausted these days, and I don't even want to think about relationships...and when I do think about them, I think about how I wouldn't be able to have the same level of trust going in. That's where this came from. (I feel the need to say I'm not a poet at all, but I don't know why, so I'll leave that here). #writing#poetry#amateur#feelings#emotions#love#trust#relationships#breakups#jaded#catharsis#watercolour#watercolorwednesday#create#creative
"Podemos Ser Más” debuta en el primer lugar
Desde que se lanzó a través de las redes sociales, “Podemos Ser Más” se convirtió en éxito y es que además de la buena letra y excelente producción musical, esta canción logró juntar a Aran (@aranone) y Los Cadillac’s (@loscadillac_s), una unión muy anhelada por los venezolanos amantes del género urbano. •
Entre los logros que ha conseguido “Podemos Ser Más” se encuentra haber debutado –esta semana- en el primer lugar de la cartelera radial más importante en Venezuela, nos referimos a “Record Report”… Aunado a ello y con apenas un mes “al aire”, el videoclip de este sencillo producido por “Los legendarios” y Hyde “El Químico” (equipo de Wisin) ya supera los 3 millones de vistas.
No podemos obviar que “Podemos Ser Más” es el primer tema perteneciente al proyecto “New Generation” mediante el cual Los Cadillac’s esperan grabar un single con los artistas más exitosos y con mayor impacto en nuestro país.
Actualmente Aran y Los Cadillac’s se encuentran visitando los principales medios de comunicación en marco de la promoción de “Podemos Ser Más”.
Nota de Prensa
A MENTOR MAKES THE DIFFERENCE
Emotions. Most of us guys hear that word and cringe. We run from them. We hide from them. We're uncomfortable when we feel them. We struggle with expressing them.
It wasn't long ago when I was told by my wife, "Phil, if you're happy, you should notify your face." That was her not so subtle way of telling me I wasn't doing a great job expressing my emotions 😂
It's still something I'm working on, but the turning point in this area came one year ago. I knew my inability to effectively communicate my emotions was affecting not only my marriage but also work relationships, friendships and family relationships.
I knew if I didn't do something to change this area in my life, I would miss out on the opportunity to really thrive and lead the life I wanted.
I wanted to set the example for my two sons. It scared me to think about me passing down my weakness to them.
I asked myself, "If I have a daughter someday, am I living in the way and being the type of man I'd want her to marry?" The answer was painful.
I didn't want to struggle any longer.
I didn't want my wife and kids to suffer.
And whatever your struggle--whether it be health, finances, or business--you don't need to either.
So, what made the difference for me?
I hired a mentor.
I didn't NEED a mentor to be successful in this area. I could have struggled my way to success given enough time and persistence. What a mentor did for me was SHORTEN the amount of time it took for me to go from where I was to where I wanted to be.
It made all the difference in TIME.
You don't need to give up MONEY to hire a mentor. But from my experience, if you don't, you'll give up far more TIME.
Which resource is more valuable to you?
I used to think it was money, especially with a family to support and bills to pay. But when it clicked that I could always earn way more money in the long run, I realized it was TIME that was the far more valuable resource to me.
This may be different for you. Maybe you prefer to do it on your own. But for me, and for my clients who don't want to give up any more time than is necessary to reach their goals, we go the route of having a mentor.
Fact... Its been over 3 years since I last used an antibiotic. Truly I keep my self pretty healthy and stay proactive about my health. Typically when I get sick I turn to my oils and bam. 🙌🏻 Well, I woke up this morning after a full day yesterday of body aches and chills and literally couldn't get out of bed. My throat hurt so bad. Like the can't even swallow water bad. #notgood Around 11am this morning I decided I needed to see a Dr. Sure enough I had Step throat. My heart sunk because I knew I had tried all that I could but couldn't bypass this sickness. So here we are. Antibiotic to the rescue. ----------------------------------------------
Now listen. Here is where I stand. God made our world full of natural homeopathic ways to care for our bodies, and essential oils are truly a gift from God. But I also believe that he made people smart enough to invent medicine and people dive in and learn all about health care as we see it today. Do I feel that antibiotics are well over used? YES😩 But there is a time and a place for everything. I am thankful for my oils but also the Drs. We have here to support us in major times of need. After I'm done with this Antibiotic, I'll be doing a whole body cleanse with my oils and supplements to rid the toxins. Stay tuned. #myopinion#everythinginmoderation#dontjudge#imhuman
This morning, something inside of me said, 'it's time;' time to throw out my #past#feelings , #emotions and things that I had accumulated over the years. Things that I had held onto because it was once special to me. I now realize I was doing more harm than good. I finally took the #initiative to throw out the things that had hurt me, the atmosphere around me literally #changed . I see thing in my life more clearly and because of it I have also gained a new perspective in the #direction I should be taking. It has been quite a process, therapeutical if you wish to call it, but it has allowed me to feel lighter not only physically but emotionally. My eyes have finally opened.. I was hurt and because of this I had #submitted to a pain that didn't allow me to see how much #damage I was doing to myself and to others. Throwing out the 'trash' has been the first step to this #new#process . I have realized that I will never get what I deserve if I remain attach to what I need to let go of...
