I just wanted to take things down a notch and write about what’s on my heart. Some of you may not care— could frankly careless, but oh well– here it goes. Read this or don’t, it is up to you.
Have you ever taken a step out of your comfort zone in order to do something new only to learn something about yourself that you didn’t like?
Today has been a really, realllly interesting day. I went to work, worked my tail off and during my lunch break sent a couple of super important e-mails out. That resulted in me getting an e-mail back from somebody who knows somebody who knows someone. Y-U-P. That’s all I’m going say. I won’t say who they are. I don’t want to give away their identify. EVER. Especially with the details of what I’m saying. RESPECT is the key word here, people. Get with the program already! That would be just terrible.
Anyways, the exchanges were very nice, I was quite honored by the quickly returned responses. So, that’s not the issue. The issue is the way I felt afterwards. Feeling like a fool after asking. Feeling like a fool after stepping outside the box that I normally would have never stepped out of. This blog & everything that goes along with it is a BIG step out of my comfort zone. Not the act of doing the blog just the whole point, the whole purpose of the blog. UKNOWWHATIMEAN. I’ve never been so… appreciative… towards an actor/celebrity/musician before. Yeah, so this is all new to me.
After speaking with this person, I had a greater appreciate for the topic at hand, the discussion I was having with them. It set my thoughts into reality. It made me question my existance, my whole point of doing this. Why? It made consequence sink in quickly.
It made me feel sadness & regret. It also made me feel protective that I wanted to protect what I have here– my whole purpose of what it is exactly I’m doing here– I don’t even know sometimes.
Anyways, I don’t know. You may read this & be more confused than you were before you even started reading this. Who knows! I apologize for that because I can’t clearly thinking right now. So, lucky you, you’re getting my gibberish. Congratulations!
I invite you to do this: Wake up from reality, take a step back & give your favorite celebrities their space. Avoid papparazzi-photos, avoid the garbage you hear on the radio, the news, and what you read in the magazines. Just let them be.
Respect Robert. Respect his friends. Respect his family. Respect Kristen. Respect Taylor. Respect all of them. Whether you like them or not. They’re people. They’re human. They have lives. They have friends & family who love them one way or another. They get up every morning (well, some of them LOL) just like we do, brush their teeth (we hope), their hair (that’s questionable) & go about their day with the same plan. To live their lives to the fullest. They just have the disadvantage of being filmed every step of the way. We have the luxury of having our privacy. Imagine that! Us being luxurious for our privacy. Not them in their music studios or their tour buses or first class flights or penthouse hotel suite. Imagine that.
And all they want to do is make movies that people will see and music that people will listen to.
Is that too much to ask?
