Hello all of my fans, and friends, I guess everyone. It has been a while since I have written. I am now off of the ship, I had a successful show on April 20th. My second niece was born, and I am now currently building my brand (Chuck Starr) to be on the BIG stage, with the BIG lights, and the BIG crowds. I feel super behind in keeping up with everyone, I told you that I am very terrible at this lol, but that is the thing about being alive everyday you are able to become a better person by learning yourself and growing, so I have a chance today to still share with you everything that has been going on and continue to get better at this social media thing lol.
Being off the ship has sent me into such a whirlwind mentally. You don't realize how big of a change things are on land compared to the ship until you are off. Like eating, I got so sick of the food onboard. The selection was terrible, when I reached an island and was able to eat different food, I yearned for the chance to just get on land permanently so that I could have good food. I am on land now, and though I am getting good food, I've become lazy. I don't feel like cooking. Sheeesh I can't win lol. On the ships it is a plus to be able to just wake up and go make you a plate, eat, and go back to sleep to rest my voice until it's time to workout and then ultimately start my shift. Not to get sidetracked but it is easier to stay in shape on the ship. There are 2 gyms a track, steam room, and on most ships a basketball court. All in walking distance lol. I get off the ship and have to drive to the gym and basketball. BOOOOO. LOL. I catch myself missing those features. Another thing is being in the same place for an extended period of time. For example I've been in Ohio now for a month, it is becoming weird. I am so used to being on a different island everyday or every other day. Nassau Bahamas, one day, then Half moon Cay beach the next. Cozemel Mexico one day, then Key West the next day. The Beaches, water, shopping, different cultures. I miss it BUT there is nothing like spending time with family and friends. You just don't get that time back, so seeing the same scenery everyday now actually has a great perk. Ultimately though the ship has great features like a bi- weekly paycheck in your account so that your not broke, and all the other pluses that I named earlier. Doing boat drills, training's, useless meetings, and having questionable food options. I would choose land. Land ultimately provides me with the chance to be on the BIG stage, BIG lights, and BIG crowds.
I know that I have a lot of catching up to do on this blog. I have soooooo much to tell. I will take it easy here and guide everyone back in. SOOO you will have to be patient lol. I enjoy typing that word because that is one of the biggest things that I have personally put focus on in my life. Sheesh. Have you stepped back and thought of things of the past and shook your head and wondered why you handled a situation or problem the way that you did? Well I am guilty of it fully. I am a person that reflects, so since I reflect I put myself through past scenario's and I'm like "man" there was an easy solution there, If I would've been able to remain patient and seen the bigger picture from BOTH sides of the coin. Crazy thing is a lot of situations are laughable now. Not that they weren't big problems, and not that they didn't matter to the friendship or relationship. Just the fact that they reached a level of danger, to the emotional side of yourself. If you know me, you know I love to laugh, I enjoy having fun, I enjoy socializing, I enjoy talking, lol, I enjoy speaking deep on matters, I am very opinionated and that used to get me soooo into my emotions because, I thought that I was always right. lol. I mean I know what I am talking about a lot of times, but I CLEARLY do not know it all lol. I realize that though my aggression can be attractive, it can also be a turn off and intimidating to people, and that is the part I used to not see or understand about myself. Patience is key and I've enjoyed working on my patience. I've had moments where I have still failed in my test of patience. BUT my growth from where I was. By far outweighs my negatives now, so trust me I will completely master this patient thing.
I have a burning question is there ever a deadline to fighting for something that you want? This is a general question you can apply this for friendship, relationship, and or career. Is there a deadline? If you believe in something or someone, but they aren't expressing interest back, as if they are gone forever do you give up or do you stay and fight because you belief in what you had. Would you give up on your career if things became hard?
I am very interested in everyone's answers. I am very happy to be back to writing. Also I give everyone of you permission to stay on top of me to write and be consistent at this. I will also make sure to go back to past blogs and answer all the questions that I still have to answer. I will also fill you in on more of what I am working on.
Thank You for your time
