New video greeting. This is the 4th I’ve done and with each try to inspire to begin the new month as well as to update where I’ll be that month..in this case July – on the 19th it’s Staten Island, NY for the City Parks ‘Summerstage’ at Corporal Thompson Park and then returning to Bethesda, MD at Bethesda Blues and Jazz Club ‘Celebrating 30 Years of Real Love’ on the 20th – that’s staying power! More concerts during the summer and fall and whenever added can always be found: Jody Watley Tour Dates
Hopefully, you will take the advice from the video and release past energies that may weigh you down going into this month..let alone months or years ago! Today is today and I hope whomever reads this post or watches the video will receive that message.
What I continue to learn is that it’s important to embrace the pace and authenticity of our own journey. We are on no one’s clock but our own. Not everyone will agree or be down with that but guess what – so what, it’s OK. We are not what other people are doing, not what others are thinking about us (cue: Don Miguel Ruiz The Four Agreements – Second agreement ‘Don’t Take Things Personally) definitely we are not to value ourselves on the the totality of social media likes and follows – the fluff many get caught up in. It’s easy to fall into that trap but don’t fall for it. We are all our unique selves. Embrace it. Own it. Carry on, and be prepared – some will resent the fact that you and simply living your life.
