Tranquility.. early morning waiting for sunrise with two of my favorites, coffee & candle -in gratitude. New beginnings each day – get your mind and energy right. There are special seasonal items like pumpkin and squash to enjoy in this fall season to perk up your sanctuary with robust color, take advantage of it. Get the vibe right.
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;
Life can be tricky and people can be shady – not wanting you to succeed, be happy or see you shine. We experience these things in so many ways. I’d have to say as a woman constantly navigating efforts to undermine, devalue and marginalize efforts and achievements can be frustrating and tedious but as I wrote a while ago “The beat don’t stop..”
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.
An inspirational message and honey turmeric tea in my favorite mug I was in heaven when I saw these leopard print napkins at the store – had to get! It’s the little things in life that can bring the greatest joy!
