Being Friends

Friends love you for who you are, but push you to be better.

Your true friends will love you and accept you as you are, but they will never let you be satisfied with your current place in life. They know that, as great as you are, there is always room for improvement. Sometimes that means pressing you to improve your social life, your grades, your interpersonal communication, your ambitions, your temper, etc. (I would go on, but these are starting to hit too close to home for me….)

I know that, personally, I always need someone to pressure me to better myself. If my life were entirely up to me, I would probably still be working at Starbucks and eating $1 frozen pizzas for dinner when I ran out of mac and cheese.

I’m thankful that I have friends that have pushed me. I may not have liked it at the time (in fact, I may have lashed out), but in retrospect, my life is better because of those friends.

So next time someone close to you tells you something that you don’t want to hear, listen to them. They just might be showing you how much they love you.

A Day Passes

Quiet of the day’s break
Burning in my ears
Replacing my final heartbreak
With the silence of fear.

And though my heart still beats away,
Clinging to those I hold dear,
My last wish that you would stay
Is all that I’m able to hear.

The sun ever to twilight fades,
Night once again grows near
And with the morning will I wake
Hoping to find you here.

A Calm Heart

Father, calm my wandering heart
Draw it ever closer to Thee
When my soul and mind drift apart
Stir the winds and calm my sea.

There is a rolling tide
That can carry me to neverland
But each beating of my heart
Is another wasted grain of sand.

My soul still cries within my broken body
If you’re still there, show me you can hear me.

Seeing Me

When I’m standing there in front of you, is it me that you see?
When your eyes fill with smiles, are you seeing past me?
When you touch my arm, embrace my heart, you’re showing your lies.
I can’t
Listen
To your eyes anymore.

Let me go from the hold that I’ve been holding onto.
I can’t suffer alone, this time my heart’s involved too
And I can’t believe you’ve done this to me
My heart thinks I’m flying, but I need to be free.
Stop looking at me.

Now tonight has come, in silence I say, I’ll embrace the dawn of day.
You’re still out there, I know, but I’m through with your show.
You may think that I am faking goodbye, I’m ignoring your eyes.
I can’t
Listen
To your lies anymore.

Let me go from the hold that I’ve been holding onto.
I can’t suffer alone, this time my heart’s involved too
And I can’t believe you’ve done this to me
My heart thinks I’m flying, but I need to be free.
Stop staring at me.
If you wanted me, you should have loved me.
If you loved me, you would have kept me.

A Beautiful Inspiration

Lo, I need the beautiful inspiration of the long and tortured night
To fill my heart, to fill my mind with visions of wonder and delight.
The sultry velvet of a dusk half-drawn
To draw me into its light ‘fore it fades to dawn.

Shall my heart leap within me at the mention of your name,
When my heart is left cold and alone and knows naught but pain?
But shall, perchance, my heart again to feel decide,
Then will I run and leap to one’s arms and abide.
Time regardless and happiness none to care,
I will be happy, regardless, when I am there.

For one, I need another, with one I will lengthen and die,
But lo, I need the beautiful inspiration of the long and tortured night.

Fresh Air

So, as some of you may know, I am no longer employed by the largest coffee company in the world. I recently resigned my position in order to be able to focus my efforts at my new job.

I am working at a branding and marketing agency that is unlike anything that the world has ever seen before. We focus completely on telling a story. The way we see it at ikros, there is no reason to invest in huge marketing campaigns that will reach millions of people–you can hone in on the people that will actually do business with your company and save yourself millions of dollars! It’s kind of like targeted marketing, but with a huge twist.

You don’t need to rely on market analyses and focus groups. All you need to do is tell your story. People will be drawn in when they know where your company comes from and why it’s there, and they will not be able to turn down what you have to offer!

Most Pointless Blog of All Time?

I have a personal dilemma on my hands. As you may know from my past blogs, I am graduating soon. I’m graduating tomorrow, actually. You probably also realize that Christmas is quickly approaching—it’s only eight days away! Now for something you probably don’t realize. My birthday falls smack dab in the middle of graduation and Christmas (my birthday is on December 22).

In one sense, this may just be the greatest week of my life and I could try to take credit for a great job of planning. I will most likely receive more gifts and more money than I have in any other week of my life (besides the week of my wedding, obviously). On the other hand, I will now have nothing to celebrate (and get presents from) for an entire year. Well, that’s a lie—my wedding anniversary is in July, but that’s really just a celebration for my wife and I, so it only sort-of counts as a holiday.

Anyways, I have yet to decide whether or not I like this arrangement that this next week is providing for me. If I had waited to graduate in May, then I would’ve spread out the love and my friends and family would’ve had less trouble trying to buy three gifts for me within a week. Of course, then I also wouldn’t have had the abundance of joy that I am sure to experience this week.

Ah, the ironies of life. Gotta love it.

And now this is probably the most pointless blog you’ve ever read. With the possible exception of all those blogs where the soon-to-be mother is bragging about the 14-month-old in her womb that she finally felt moving around and it’s oh-so-exciting.

Except for that.
