Ana Vidovic: Valses Venezolanos 2 y 3 - Antonio Lauro

Doing what's right for oneself

Doing what's right is a hard thing to do. We all know what's right for us, but we all are scared at various times to do the proper thing. We all fear what will happen if we stand up for ourselves. We all fear loss, rejection, fighting a battle, we fear making a problem, we fear ruining the status quo, we fear stepping on someone's toes. There's so many different scenarios where fear plays a terrible and important role.

We fear so much that we forget to treat ourselves good.

Treating ourselves doesn't mean abusing other people or being selfish or unkind or inconsiderate to others, because no one lives in a bubble. But treating ourselves good means being kind to ourselves, forgiving ourselves, being honest (but not cruel) and believing enough in what we do to stand up for what matters to us. Without harming anyone including ourself.

Doing the right thing is hard, but it will always be the right thing, and nothing or no one will ever change that.

Why drive so crazy

I don't understand why people have to drive so careless here in Trinidad. You'd swear to God that we are the safest drivers in the world, all at top speed.

We break traffic lights, create lanes where there are none and we hardly give any chances to other drivers.

And yet, every year the number of vehicular deaths rise. And the sad and scary thing is, rather than change our driving habits, we're going the next way....we're driving to hell in a hand basket faster than ever.

The really sad thing is all the innocent drivers who get killed or hurt in the process, trying to get out of the way from all the hooligan, crazy drivers, who are making their own rules of the road.

And my question is, where are the police? and why aren't there more traffic tickets being handed out for road violations?

Why can't we drive safely in Trinidad & Tobago?

Why

New music....and radio

New music....I get new music from friends, from random links from Youtube videos....and from podcasts like BBC Oxford Introducing...

I'm not the most savvy person when it comes to finding new music...but I think....everyone wants a new band to sink their teeth into....new music is like finding a great secret, you're not too sure if you'd like to share it with everyone or keep it to yourself.....but sooner or later....you gotta let the cat out of the bag.

New music is the life blood of the music industry, but still....the veterans are the ones we all look up to set standards, break the rules and keep us guessing, many years later.....then some new band comes along and freaks the crap out of everyone....and the rules get changed again....and we have new music.....

I just wish mainstream radio could be more positive and proactive in breaking new bands....rather than just playing it safe....

anyways....wishful thinking....but I know in years past...radio was king in setting trends....now they're just happy to earn money on replays.....

Behind the scenes though, this new music probable took years, even decades to reach a wide listening audience....so it's not really new.....but it is fresh....and we need it to sustain our ears....
