Pen Strokes

Why I became a Fan of Geneva Cruz…

This will shock most of you…

Those who know me, know that I’ve never been a fan of Actors or Actresses, Foreign or Local.  But recently, I came across a note on Facebook that gave me a different perspective of a certain Singer-Actress. Her name? Geneva Cruz-Miller! The perspective? A very human and humble perspective! It takes a strong yet humble person to write this note. Maybe you should read the note and and judge for yourself (By the way, I got permission from Geneva to post it here)…

Geneva and Family... and don't tell me you don't know her husband!

“I WANNA LEARN TO BEAR THE ACCIDENTS OF LIFE WITH DIGNITY AND GRACE, MAKING THE BEST OF MY CIRCUMSTANCES, LIKE A SKILLFUL SOLDIER WHO HAS GONE TO WAR AND BACK IN THE ARMS OF HIS LOVED ONES.”

I must admit that I’ve made some wrong choices in life. I’ve forgotten who I really was for a long time- I was confused, distracted by the trials and changes in my personal life, but most importantly, I have forgotten to take good care of my voice.

I would like to apologize for my mistakes, my wrong doings- the foolish words that I might have said on T.V. and radio in the past and how I acted in public at times when I was at my most vulnerable phase in life, and for being confused and for temporarily forgetting who I really was.

I would also like to thank my followers as well as my critics for opening my eyes to what was really going on with me as an artist, the problems were staring right at my face but I was too blind to see. I truly am sorry.

It is indeed very difficult to grow up in the spotlight, but then again, it is AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN my responsibility as an artist to set a good example to the people who trust me and may look up to me. Although they may have been mistakes,I believe that I have learned from them and it has made me a stronger and wiser woman todaythan ever before.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the people who STAYED WITH ME through the UPS and DOWNS of my 19 years in the music business. I promise you all that I am ready to give you my best album yet in 2009.

Godspeed!
Geneva 🙂

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation: we do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence BUT WE RATHER HAVE THESE BECAUSE WE HAVE ACTED RIGHTLY; these virtues are formed in man by his doing the actions, we are what we repeatedly do. EXCELLENCE, THEN, IS NOT AN ACT BUT A HABIT: “THE GOOD OF MAN IS A WORKING OF THE SOUL IN THE WAY OF EXCELLENCE IN A COMPLETE LIFE, FOR AS IT IS NOT ONE SWALLOW OR ONE FINE DAY THAT MAKES A SPRING, SO IT IS NOT ONE DAY OR A SHORT TIME THAT MAKES A MAN BLESSED AND HAPPY.” -Aristotle
