My Thoughts On Caring



Half the night is already gone and I'm wide awake. I feel like a dog who has the ability to wake up at any time they want and never get exhausted. They just yawn, drink some water, and continue another day as a dog.

I can't sleep due to my inner thoughts causing me to think about caring. I sometimes wonder what that word means to people. I sometimes think people are misinterpreting it and bringing to life the devil's version of the word. God forbids that word should never exist. After all, if that word didn't exist, we would all be dead by now.

I, for one, am a person that truly cares. My life almost surrounds that word. I care about myself. I care about others. I care about my career. I care about life. I show care in all kinds of forms because I want to show that there is truly another person in this world that shows love. Of course, there are times when I cross the levels of caring by being overly affectionate and getting attached to people faster than the average person shouldn't do. I just can't help it. It's in my blood.

There are times though when I believe I'm the only person on this planet that truly follows the definition of the word “care”.

Nowadays, I see people use that word as a sign of weakness. Or better yet, as their secret weapon. As soon as a caring person walks into their life, they consider it either an illness or something they can use against that person. It's as if caring people were born to be used and abused because they don't know how to put their emotions to the side completely until their alone and not around other people.

I truthfully admit that my acts of caring for others, even though I love myself more, has been used against me and fed to the enemies for their own pleasure. A kind, short, quirky, hardworking man in his twenties with a smile on his face 90% of the time. That's easy for almost anyone to chew up and spit out without a care in the world how that person feels after putting scars on them.

Sometimes I wonder if I should keep all of my caring to myself. Let others know how it feels not to care. Sadly, my Libra self can't. It against my natural state of mind to hold grudges or be completely angry. All I can do is self reflect while moving at a glacial pace. That and change the many chapters of my life (people, places, etc.) whenever I  feel my acts of caring is being abused or not even being paid attention to because people find annoying like the everyday outsider.

Why does life have to be so difficult when it comes to caring?

I Am The New Social Media Manager For "New York Dog Nanny"

It's finally time for to reveal something that I've known for quite a while. I didn't want to say anything because I wanted to make sure it was official. I am officially a intern as the social media manager for the company New York Dog Nanny.

It's a wonderful store that's all about caring for dogs. If you need a walker, they're here for you. If you need someone to dog sit, stay for the night, groom, etc. This is what the company is for and I loved them.

I'll be in charge in making sure there is content on their Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Yelp, etc. You might even find some writing from me too. I promise you guys that there will be funny material and I good time on these pages.

I'm still laughing about the interview. When I walked inside, I was immediately introduced to a crowd of dogs that were ready to run me down when I reached the door. Also, Cynthia (the manager) and I were bouncing so many ideas off of each other. We have thoughts of how-to videos, funny blog posts for the blog, creating campaigns, etc.

I truly can't wait. Starting Monday, expect great things from us over at New York Dog Nanny.

But first everyone, I would like everyone to do me a favor. I want everyone to follow New York Dog Nanny on their social media pages. That way, when the material comes up you'll know when they come up. So LIKE and follow them. This is going to be an amazing ride.

The Soundtrack Of Your Life


Everyone has a soundtrack to their life. There are even times when their favorite song plays in the background.

Coincidence? I think not.

I for one am a lover of music. I listen to all kinds of songs. My iPod shuffle is constantly blowing music into my ears. Every single that I listen to is a reflection of who I am as a person. It reminds me of a particular time in my life that I can remember just by pressing play.

Have you ever had that moment when the right sound played in the background no matter where you were? My life certainly does that. If I'm happy or sad, a feel good song or an incredibly sad song plays in the background unexpectedly. I don't consider it a coincidence. I truly believe that whatever you're feeling comes out in reality in any shape or form.

Since the day I can remember I've been creating my infinite playlist. It's a notebook that contains every song that's a reflection of my life. I do it so that one day, I can reflect on way I love these songs, and to remind me how much I went through at those particular times of my life.

What's the soundtrack of your life? If you don't have one, create it.
