Living in the present leads to a better life. One is less depressed and confused. Things are clearer and in the moment. You have less things to worry about. Living in the present is indeed better, but even though we try, we always get caught up in the past. We also get tangled in a web of thoughts about the future, and what we want to happen. Why not just live in the moment? Yeah I admit, its hard, but in the long run it is good for us. Be surprised, be amazed. Think about it, you actually start to enjoy more life. You do what you do because you wnat to, not because you have to. Have no limitations.

As Freud said, we all have an ID, an ego, and a super ego. The ID is the part of us that we aren’t aware of. One might say our rebel side, the subconscious part of ourselves. On the other hand, the super ego is the part of ourselves that want’s to do everything according to society. The one that is afraid of what other people might think, and wants to maintain a certain order. There are times when our ID is to strong a feeling, and the super ego can’t control it, so we spill out, but our super ego is there to try to pick up the pieces. They are in a constant fight, but the super ego is stronger, I think all of us can agree to that. Would the world be a better place without our super ego? or would it just be total chaos?
Sometimes I feel I shouldn’t say something, but I always end up saying it, and I always regret it. In the past few days I have tried to hold my feelings in as much as I could, but it is too hard. Recent events have made me wonder whether I’ll always have the opportunity to say the things I want to say. But what if the things I want to say will only end up hurting me, and other people. If I say what I want to say I will hurt myself, hurt others, and will loose friends. I have had many experiences in which I end up saying these things, and I always regret it, which is why it won’t happen again. I have to shield myself from things that will hurt me. I try to be honest, because I believe that if I am honest, people will take into account the things I say. If I am honest people can understand me better and maybe give me a chance, but what if it is just the opposite? At these moments it is hard to choose what to do. I have never been a good speaker. Even if I plan what I want to say, I screw thinks up. Things are too stressful the way they are, so why do I want to add more stress to my life? Should I simply keep my thoughts to myself , or should I simply let go?
Little Joy is a new band composed of Fabrizio Moretti (drumer of The Strokes), and Binki Shapiro and Rodrigo Amarante from the Brazilian band “Los Hermanos”. these three friend decided to work on a project together and their result was amazing. The album is the exact mixture of the unique Brazilian typical beats, and an indie alternative sound. The conjunction is very unique, and original. The sound varies from indie, alternative to Brazilian rock. A very creative project that deserves recognition. The best tracks include Brand new start, with a very special melody; The next time around, with very concise yet rhythmically original drums; and Shoulder to Shoulder, which is a bit more rock, yet calm.
It is important to be aware of what really matters in your life, and what you really need. To know the people who surround you, and be able to perceive them as someone you need, someone good for you, someone fun, or simply someone that is hurting you and causing you trouble. Once you have this figured out, things can get a lot easier. You might believe someone is good for you, and cares about you, but in context, this might not be the case. Each person you know should contribute something different to your life. If all this things they are constantly transmitting into your brain, and all the ideas they are sharing with you are things you agree with, then that’s great. But if all they say are things that make you angry, or upset, even though you have fun with them, then what’s the point in keeping them in your life? Everyone you know has a bigger influence on you than what you might expect. They are a part of you, whether you like it or not.
The negative things in life are like a fly. It is so small, yet so unholy. Even though you can barely see the fly, and it doesn’t even occupy 1/1000 of the space we do, it bothers us a lot. It is frustrating to have a fly flying all over your space. The awful noise it produces makes it really hard for us to concentrate in anything but the fly. The same thing happens with negative things. They are so small, and so insignificant, but it is as if we view them through a microscope, and we turn them into something much more bigger than what they really are. All we need to do is to tell the fly to go away, to leave us alone. Hell, kill the fly if it is necessary. Don’t let it mess with your mind.
I used to spend a large portion of my time thinking things over and over again. Recapturing every moment in my mind, and wondering what I did wrong, or in certain cases, good. I always end up with no conclusions, and even though I think everything through so much, It always seems to make things worse. I go through everything I want to say in my mind, but when the time comes, I end up saying something completely different and messing things up. It is as if my mouth gets ahead of myself. From now on, or at least until I figure things out a bit more, I will try not to think everything over and over again. Maybe this is what I need. For once in my life I wish I were able to say all that I want to say, at the time I want to say it. I shouldn’t be scared of the consequences, because after all that’s life.
