Breathe In & Breathe Out
As another year comes to an end and we make our assessments, it's important not to put too much stress on ourselves. Take a look at what you've achieved this year. Don't weigh everything by it's monetary value but take into consideration the lessons learned. It's also important to remember that we don't exist in a vacuum. What I mean is that as much as we love our art and craft we are influenced by ALL of our relationships, especially our significant others. We can say that it doesn't matter and we only live for our music but when you decide to love someone you no longer live for just your music. This is hard because as artists we can sometimes be selfish and we are not always the best verbal communicators. We are temperamental, moody, jealous, territorial and we wear our emotions on our sleeves. For those that love us it can be hard to understand that as creative people we are affected by EVERYTHING. As we move forward, it is important that we learn the secret to success. . . wait for it . . . wait for it . . . the secret is to simply breathe in and breathe out. Just keep living but do so only expecting great things from our art and our relationships. And yes we need both. We all need to know that their is someone in our corner that is exclusive to us and we can't be afraid to say that to the people we need. Pursuing your personal legend is a hard way to go and when you choose to let someone in to share the journey with you, they have to be the right one and you have to be unafraid to share and allow them to help you as you help them. I know some may say that one has nothing to do with the other but trust me. No matter how strong we are, we all need support and someone to trust and love. We are a gifted people blessed with the ability to create beauty that can change the very world we live in. If we are going to inspire beauty, we must live and experience it in our on lives, professional and personal. So as you assess this past year and make plans to move forward, don't do so in a vacuum. Take ALL of your relationships into consideration. No stress allowed, just breathe in; breathe out and keep moving towards your success. Enjoy the journey.
