Setting the tone for your day makes a difference no matter the turmoil of the world. Gratitude and thanks – positive affirmations, favorite candles and a favorite hot cup of your morning drink of choice! The best of the day to you.
Some people will always view you in old lenses and be uncomfortable with your growth and evolution because they have not grown. Life is always changing for us to always go toward new potential, knowledge, self improvement evolution. For me this and has always been essential personally and professionally. That said, there will always be those who don’t believe or live that point of view seeing only an outdated version of you left behind.
You’ll have people discussing you who probably never knew the depth of you – let alone who you’ve grown into.
Undoubtedly the mentality or resistance is because of their own lack of growth and comfort of living in the rear view.
Keep growing and evolving, whether or not others understand, acknowledge or embrace – just keep living to be your new best self as long as there is life – not settling on the you of days gone by.
A bit of motivation and inspiration for you .. yes these are challenging times, pandemic, unemployment.. there’s a contentious election, division, social inequalities, the list is long – but guess what?? We are here and alive – Live YOUR LIFE, no matter what’s going on.
If you are spending a lot of time online complaining about politics and aren’t being paid to do so stop to consider if that energy is helping you do what you need to do to make your life better, change your circumstances. My purpose is always wrapped in reminding you of the possibilities, the up side to keep you encouraged about life not to be down in life and your well being. As a person that is self employed, a total work stoppage of live music would do nothing for me to get online and complain or be discouraged by all of the divisions, attempts at voter suppression and beyond. What I’ve done in put my focus on creating new opportunities for myself in business. If you can’t change the circumstances such as the pandemic – change the way you are thinking or dealing with it.
After we vote and yes I hope Trump is voted out in terms of the national election — there is still life ahead, life is happened NOW — So STOP doing these things;
And just like that summer transitions to fall. It’s been a blurring of one season onto the next in this pandemic. No concerts or travel since February has really been an adjustment. No travel hustle and bustle, no concerts and adoring supporters enjoying the music, no hanging out grabbing dinner after show and all of the social interaction that comes with tours and putting on shows. My heart had dropped a little with each 0 miles and hotel points earned notification. Winter, Spring, Summer .. now here we are. I miss it all and being onstage – but what can we do under these circumstances? So many out of work .. even our favorite family restaurant Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse Beverly Hills has shuttered for good as summer ended. We can’t do anything beyond finding other ways to stay creative, productive, motivated and healthy. This season is one for even greater reflection-it is the season of change.
Autumn Equinox Blessings : As we transition into this new season – may we be like trees shedding dead leaves from it’s branches and let things go that are no longer serving our well being-making room for new blessings and growth like the leaves falling away for continued transformation in the ever changing flow of life.
Like I wrote for “The Healing” never let anyone dim your light – and I’d add don’t dim your light to make others feel more comfortable. I’ve been guilty of that a time or two along the way – lessons learned.
