Adiós/Goodbye


Adiós

Buenas noches, aventureros. ¿Qué cuentan?

Adiós…Esta es una palabra que es difícil decir o escuchar, porque suena a algo definitivo. Pero, a veces es necesaria.

Mi grupo favorito, The Script, tiene un álbum nuevo, que ya había comprado y oído, pero no me había detenido a escucharlo. Cuando lo hice recientemente, me quedé sorprendida, porque cada vez se superan a sí mismos. Este disco es como una buena peli, que te hace reír, llorar, y querer ver una y otra vez. Una de las canciones es “No good in goodbye” (“No hay nada bueno en el adiós”), que inspiró esta entrada. Ella habla sobre la separación de una pareja, y cómo uno de los dos no encuentra nada bueno en el adiós. Y es que las separaciones no son fáciles, pero a veces es la mejor alternativa. Como de costumbre, no me refiero sólo a una pareja, sino a situaciones con familiares y amigos. Hay personas que llegan a nuestra vida para estar sólo por un tiempo, usualmente porque es una lección que debemos aprender. Lo que pasa es que el ser humano se aferra a lo que conoce, y teme al cambio, pero a veces es justo lo que necesita.

Me encanta cómo este grupo habla en sus canciones sobre cosas con las que todos podemos identificarnos, desde dolor, alegría y amor, hasta patriotismo.

Adiós puede ser algo definitivo o temporero; todo depende. Comoquiera, el tiempo y el espacio ayudan a sanar. Un amigo me contó de una experiencia que tuvo con una chica a la que quiso mucho, pero ella no le correspondió, y hasta se aprovechaba de su adoración por ella. Después de un tiempo, él se dio cuenta, y aunque no fue fácil, tuvo que alejarse. Como cualquier persona, se molestó y lloró, pero luego lo aceptó. Eso pasó hace tiempo, y recientemente me contó que ella le envió un mensaje para felicitarlo en las Navidades. El dice que se sintió bien, porque ya no son enemigos ni amigos, y no le guarda rencor. El entiende que tuvo que cerrar ese capítulo para poder continuar su camino.

El fin puede ser el principio, como dice otra canción de The Script, que compartí en una entrada anterior. A veces queremos seguir en la misma ruta, pero la vida nos mueve en otra dirección; déjate llevar.

Comparto el video de la canción; la letra está en la descripción. Gracias, Danny, Mark y Glen, por inspirarme con su música.

Gracias por escuchar. Un abrazote.

  
Goodbye

Good night, adventurers. What’s up?

Goodbye ...This is a word that is difficult to say or hear, because it sounds like something definitive. But sometimes it is necessary.

My favorite band, The Script, has a new album, which I had already bought and heard, but had not stopped to listen. When I did it recently, I was surprised, because they surpass themselves every time. This album is like a good movie that makes you laugh, cry, and want to see again and again. One of the songs is "No good in goodbye", which inspired this post. It talks about the separation of a couple, and how one of them do not see anything good in goodbye. Separations are not easy, but sometimes it is the best choice. As usual, I am not talking about just a couple, but also about situations with family and friends. Some people come into our lives to be there for a while, usually because it is a lesson to be learned. What happens is that humans hang on to what they know, and fear change, but sometimes it's just what they need.

I love how this group speaks in their songs about things we can all identify with, from pain, joy and love, to even patriotism.

Goodbye can be permanent or temporary; it all depends. Anyway, time and space help to heal. A friend told me of an experience he had with a girl that he loved very much, but she did not love him, and even took advantage of his adoration for her. After a while, he realized it, and although it was not easy, had to move on. Like anyone, he got upset and cried, but then accepted it. That happened a long time ago, and recently he told me that she sent a message to congratulate him during the holidays. He said he felt good, because they are no longer enemies or friends, and there are no hard feelings. He understands that he had to close that chapter in order to move on.

The end can be the beginning, as another song by The Script says, which I shared in a previous post. Sometimes we follow the same route, but life moves us in another direction; let go.

Here is the video of the song; the lyrics are on the description. Thank you, Danny, Mark and Glen, for inspiring me with your music. 

Thanks for listening. A big hug.

Huracán/Hurricane


Huracán

Hey aventureros! ¿Qué es la que? Ya empezamos un nuevo semestre, que de seguro se terminará súper rápido. ¿Alguien ama tanto el verano como yo?

Huracán…¡Pero, Jac, si apenas estamos en enero, y la temporada empieza en junio! Tranquilo, que este es otro tipo de huracán.

Uno de mis momentos favoritos del 2014 fue ir al concierto “Hot Evolution” de mi estación de radio favorita, Hot 102. Una de las presentaciones que más me gustó fue de la de Chris Wallace, que hasta sacó su guitarra para sorprendernos con una versión acústica de una canción de música electrónica. Cuando iba a cantar una de sus canciones, nos dijo: “Esta canción es sobre una chica que me hirió, pero me levanté, porque eso es lo que haces cuando alguien te hiere.” ¡Genial! Hasta lo anoté en el celular, porque sabía que sería una entrada de este blog de motivación. Ese tema es “Hurricane” (“Huracán”).

¿Te han herido personas que adoras? Claro, a todos nos ha pasado. Y no sólo hablo de una pareja; puede ser un familiar o un amigo. Pero, ¿verdad que aprendiste de esa situación? Piénsalo…Si eso no te hubiera pasado, no serías quien eres hoy. Todo pasa por una razón.

¿Acaso te vengaste? Espero que no, porque no vale la pena. Si alguien no te aprecia y hasta te hace daño, lo más recomendable es seguir adelante. Deséale lo mejor, pues nada ganas con guardar rencor. Oye, sé que no es fácil, pero odiarlo no te permitirá crecer como ser humano. Así como recogemos después de un huracán, recoge los escombros, bota lo que no necesites, y sigue caminando. No vivas en el pasado, ni te detengas por nadie.

Atrévete a contarme tu experiencia con ese huracán, y cómo lo superaste.

Comparto un video de la canción, y les incluyo la letra. Gracias, Chris, por la inspiración. Sigue compartiendo tu magnífico talento con el mundo.

Gracias por escuchar. Un abrazote.


Hurricane

I opened my eyes
To the wreckage all around me
Look what you've done
Don't know why, you left without warning
Just a hit and run

Now I'm taking back all my love you stole
Erasing you baby
Got to get my mind right
Got to take control
Before I go crazy

You hit me like a hurricane
You know you got me spinning round and round
I brought you through it all the way
And you tried to take me down, down, down, down.
You thought you could bend me, break me
But I'm only stronger now (only stronger now)
Yeah, you hit me like a hurricane
But you'll never take me down, down, down, down

I was lost
Just caught up in the chaos
I was so far gone
I see it now
There was nothing that could save us
So I'm moving on
Now I'm taking back all my love you stole
Erasing you baby
Got to get my mind right
Got to take control
Before I go crazy

You hit me like a hurricane
You know you got me spinning round and round
I brought you through it all the way
And you tried to take me down, down, down, down.
You thought you could bend me, break me
But I'm only stronger now (only stronger now)
Yeah, you hit me like a hurricane
But you'll never take me down, down, down, down

You hit me like a hurricane (a hurricane)

I'm over it
Its overdue
Cause the worst part of me I left with you
I don't want you back
Don't care what you say
All the wreckage that you left
You know, I threw it away

You hit me like a hurricane
You know you got me spinning round and round
I brought you through it all the way
And you tried to take me down, down, down, down.
You thought you could bend me, break me
But I'm only stronger now (only stronger now)
Yeah, you hit me like a hurricane
But you'll never take me down, down, down, down
You hit me like a hurricane.

           
Hurricane

Hey adventurers! What’s up? We already started a new semester, which surely will end super fast. Does anyone loves summer as much as me?

Hurricane ... But Jac, we are just in January, and the season begins in June! Keep calm; this is another kind of hurricane.

One of my favorite moments of 2014 was going to the concert "Hot Evolution" of my favorite radio station, Hot 102. One of the performances that I liked the most was the one of Chris Wallace, who took up his guitar to surprise us with a version sound of an electronic music song. When he was going to sing one of his songs, he said: "This song is about a girl who hurt me, but I bounce back, because that's what you do when someone hurts you." Great! I even wrote it down on my phone, because I knew it would be a post for this motivation blog. That theme is "Hurricane".

Have people you love hurt you? Sure, it has happened to all of us. And I'm not just talking of a couple; it can be a relative or a friend. But, is it true that you learned from this situation? Think about it ... If that had not happened, you would not be who you are today. Everything happens for a reason.

Did you get revenge? I hope not, because it is not worth it. If someone does not appreciate you and even hurts you, it is best to move on. Wish him/her the best, because you do not gain anything holding a grudge. Hey, I know it's not easy, but hating him/her will not allow you to grow as a human being. As we clean after a hurricane, pick up the rubbish, throw out what you do not need, and keep walking. Do not live in the past, nor stop for anyone.

I dare you to tell me your experience with a hurricane, and how you overcome it.

Here is a video of the song. Thank you, Chris, for the inspiration. Keep sharing your wonderful talent with the world. 

Thanks for listening. A big hug.
