It's never too late

I've come to the conclusion that it's never too late to achieve your dreams. You know all those things you hope one day you'll try? Well, sometimes, for one reason or another, we can't do them when we want to. However, it's never too late to try, no matter how old you are. Everything has its time to happen, sometimes it might take years, orthers just a few days. I've always said I'd like to learn how to play a musical instrument and read music, but never did have a chance to do so... Well, up until 2 months ago, the opportunity came by and I just took it without even thinking about it and I can tell you it was one of the best decisions I made in all my life.

Some people might think I might be too old to learn how to play a musical instrument but I don't give a damn about what others say. I said I wanted to learn and I am and it makes me really, really happy. I don't have to prove anything to anyone. Is it easy? Not at all. It requires time, dedication, discipline and hard work. Does it sound bad? Oh yes, most of the time, but that's what makes me want to carry on so I can learn how to play better. I have to deal with frustration because I can't practice probably as much as I'd like because the body simply doesn't allow to. But with time the practice duration increases. At first I couldn't practice for more than 15/20 minutes, now it's about an hour, but as soon as my body starts to complain I'll have to stop immediately. And why? It's not productive, the body gets tense and I'll start playing wrong and there's nothing worse than that.

In conclusion, if you have a dream go for it! It's never too late for it to become a reality :)

"Painful" relationship

That title didn't sound that good... lol. Well, I'll explain, A few days ago I shared an image on Facebook that said "I have a meaningful relationship with my violin" and though it's entirely true, at the moment I'd say is more like a "... painful relationship...". And why? Well because it is physically painful lol, which is a normal thing at first, so I was told. My body, that is, arms, hands, neck and shoulders, need to adjust to this new posture and I also need do relax a bit more, which is something people don't do at the begining. I keep thinking to myself: "the violin is not going to fall down and the bow is not going to slip through my fingers". My brain knows this but apparently my body is ignoring me.

Apart from the painful thing, it's a lot of fun and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I need lots and lots and lots of practice and as weird as it might sound, I never let a day go by without practicing. Unfortunately, I can't practice as much as I'd like, because of what I wrote above. My teacher told me that as soon as anything starts to hurt or if I get too tense, I should stop immediately, relax for a while and then come back.

I don't think it would be necessary to say this, but I can't wait for next class lol. I sound like a little kid...

Invisible

mood: sad sad

Some days I think I'm invisible for people... while other times I wished I was... either way, sometimes I wonder if people would miss me if was gone. Maybe I'm over reacting, but it's what I feel. When I talk sometimes I don't think people actually listen, but then they come to me for advice... funny.

People don't have to read my mind and I don't expect that either, I just would like for them to be more subtle when it comes to certain subjects... but apparently they're not...

I wonder if I'll ever be happy... in all areas of my life...

New Year

New Year... what will you bring me?

That's still a mystery to me but one thing I'm sure, I'm going to start thinking more about me than others. Selfish? Maybe. But I don't care, If I'm going to help others I need to feel good first.

Some things are going to change too, starting with my hair tomorrow... as for the rest, we'll see how things are going.
