For Those Who “Hate” Bands/Types of Music

No Comments 09 April 2010

Everyone I know listens to music and loves at least one genre. There are also many people who hate certain types of music (some examples of people I know are country and heavy metal haters). But that doesn’t mean that any certain type of music is “bad”. And, for popular artists (ie Nickelback, Celine Dion) I always find it interesting when people say that they hate them because they’re “bad”. Or that all of Nickelback’s songs sound the same. Or that other people don’t know good music.

Well, I think those people are foolish and silly.  Who can really say if a band as big as Nickelback is bad? They’re not. Millions of people love them (myself included). There aren’t any bands that I “hate”. Rarely can you find a band/type of music who I won’t listen to. I appreciate them for what they are – artists. They are doing what they love to do and there are many of them who are really good at what they do.

I give props to anyone who writes music, performs in front of thousands of people, produces an album, etc. They exist as they do because they entertain us and some of them do it so well that they are very very rich. Who wouldn’t want to do what they love and make a lot of money from it? I certainly wouldn’t complain.

I just find it really tiring, annoying and a waste for when people have so much hatred for something. If you really don’t like something that much, don’t waste energy “hating” them/it. Use that energy in a positive way and direct it towards doing something good or spending your time doing something you love.

Just a suggestion for all you “haters”.

It’s much more fun loving something than hating something.

And much more rewarding.

Clutter In Your Life – You Make the Choice

No Comments 06 April 2010

How much clutter do you have in your life?

I’m not just talking about possessions.

What about your friends? How many of them suck the energy from you? Friends can either give you energy or take energy away from you. I think it’s important to evaluate your friendships. Sometimes your best friends are energy takers – but if you’re aware of that and are ready to accept that, then the friendship can work. If you’re not, well maybe it’s not a good idea to still be friends with that person.

Have you ever heard someone say to you “I’m being mean to you because I care about you?”

Well I think that’s bullshit. If someone cares about you, they should be supportive of you and encouraging of what you do. Even if it’s in their character to be critical, if they truly care about you (and that admiration is a positive thing) then they will be positive and supportive.

If you are surrounded by too many critical and negative people then your life will feel very critical and negative and it will be tiring. You might even start being more critical of your friends.

If you’ve ever heard of the book/movie/etc called “The Secret” (which ps it’s not) then you’ll know that your energy will attract similar energy. If you’re super positive then you’ll attract positive people and vice versa. However, it’s entirely possible to be super positive yet attract negative people. But that’s the great thing about life – you have a choice as to who you surround yourself with and who you choose to be in your life.

So choose wisely. Because it’s much better having positive supportive people around you.
