All my life, I was told I am doing life wrong. Being an artist, you are open to be judged, to be questioned on your direction. How can someone tell you where you are going if they never been there before?
The story of my life I guess. It’s like a mother not allowing their child to grow up. It’s like a teacher saying you will never graduation. It’s like your boss telling you won’t be greater and potential higher them in the future.
Never limit yourself. Never not believe. Always talk up for yourself. Don’t be fearful of failure. If you don’t speak your vision, then who will?
I just wanted to share a piece of real with the world.
Music is a big influence in my life. I have quite a few songs and albums that have defined my life & moments in my life. Whether is my love life, my anxiety phase, when I felt I was emotionless, music really came in for the save. So when I hear certain songs, or thoughts of certain lyrics I am quick to put my Spotify subscription to use on my iPhone to jam to whatever song I want to at that given moment. I am a big fan of headphones, so I probably will do a review of a few of my favorites, as I absolutely own about 12 pairs of headphones. Trust I know, a bit obsessive right? But if you love music as much as I do, you would see why.
Anyways, today’s music story I want to share is more of my love of music as whole and the battle between The Backstreet Boys and Nsync. I am big fan of The Backstreet Boys, c’mon who does love the songs, “Everybody” “Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely” “Quit Playing Games With My Heart” “I Want It That Way” “As Long As You Love Me”. Well I think this was my first experience with enjoying a boy group/band out of the realm of “Boyz II Men” is which is amazing.
And then out nowhere comes Nsync in which I was super hating on, I will not lie. I was caught in the battle that you had to choose a team. But my music taste burst open, when Nsync released, “No Strings Attached”. This is probably one of favorite albums all times, I can probably say it’s in my top 25 favorite albums of all times. With amazing songs such as “Bye Bye Bye” “No Strings Attached” “Digital Get Down” “Just Got Paid” “Space Cowboy”.
I just love this album so much. The energy and music composition was just top tier. It’s crazy because this was an album I admitted to a girlfriend I loved and we enjoyed relating to group and the music. So it’s crazy every time I listen any of the songs, I can’t help but think of her. So I guess that’s something I have to live with. At first it was (tough) as a guy from Bronx, New York to say, hey I enjoy music from Nsync, when it came out at the time, but this album/music taught me, the meaning of good music is just good music. Good music is worth enjoying. And to add more flavor to it all, their music videos were amazing and sold the songs a million times over.
As the story was all about joy…then came the heart break, and the song “Gone” was just so sad and expressed me losing the one of the loves of my life, my girlfriend at the time. I am not going to lie, I think this song made me cry as well. There was so many emotions building up and it was just there. To this day it gives me goose bumps, it’s a really good song. It’s definitely a good break up / heart ache song to add to a playlist.
I hope you enjoyed my story…shares yours with me, I would love to read it.

When I get up in the morning everyday, I know deep down that anything can go wrong. But in that same sentiment I was blessed to be given the opportunity to see another day. I know it’s maybe weird to think that way on in that process. As some people get up and read and feel enlightened, music is my energy ball. It shapes how I start my day.
This is how epic and extreme my mind is, if you watch this music video “Come With Me” with Puff Daddy… this is how I envision my day might be everyday and I must be prepared to take on the world… take a look. If you seen it before, please revisit it.
When I think of my everyday tasks, whether it’s my gym workout, or daily tasks at work, and dealing with many people I encounter in the back of my mind based on energy this video depicts how I approach things. I have such a strong control on my output I push forth my best talents and abilities. As much as joke around at times I don’t mind winning, I love winning. I love fighting and battling obstacles in my way. It’s hard for me not to, it’s just in my blood. I want to do well, I can’t sit and watch failure in front of me. This Rick Ross song strongly represents anyone in my way and trying to hold me back. Take a look, and just imagine the energy he is getting off in his scenes, that’s how my mind is racing and pacing every moment of the day when I am attacking my goals.
Let me know your thoughts and share with me two songs that gets you going and making you ready for your day.
