When I started singing I realized that I could do this forever. You know that tingly special feeling you get when you are happy. It’s like going on vacation after a long grueling week at work. You just feel refreshed and complete. Why do you do what you do? Does it complete you? Does it serve a worthwhile purpose for you? Is it because you love it? Or are you just trying to follow someone else’s view of what you should become? I get it. We DO have to pay the bills. I think every now and then, we should ask ourselves these questions. Let’s find the purpose in what we do. Let’s make it work for us and what we need in our lives. I know that I may never be perfect. I know that I may never be a superstar, but I know that I can set my life up to be perfect in my own way. I know that it is perfectly fine to live my life in dedication to my family and my emotional well being if that is what I choose. Even if it means not making as much money. Also if that is what I choose, I need to carry out actions, plans, and meet the right people to make it happen.
Keep working people.
Music is so important to me. I think it is because it takes you to another place or ushers you into a deep place inside yourself. It can make you dance but it can make you cry. Today I would like to use music as a source of gratitude. I want to say thank you to all my friends, family, readers, and everyone who have touched my life. I just want to sit back and appreciate where I am right now and thank God for everything in my life at this moment. I still look up at the moon and thank God for science. Life is here and it is beautiful. Not perfect but I am thankful for it. My hope is that I can live in a spirit of gratitude. Those low points in my life are not easy. However, I believe that my attitude can shape my future and my present. Admittedly, sometimes I need help from wonderful people like you. I am so inspired by the art, blogs, photography, and articles that I discover. I love to learn. I am thankful for simple things, the complex things, the pretty, and the ugly. Thank you everyone who has expressed interest and signed up for free music and more information about my music. It is truly a gift. I do not take my talent lightly. I am grateful for it. Please take the time and tell me which song(s) you like best.
Recently, I have discovered that trying to be perfect, for me, is simply a form of procrastination. You know that urge and desire of having to make sure everything is just right. So you wait. You wait again. Why? Because you have to get everything just right before you move forward. Or maybe it’s just fear. The next thing you know, time passes by and you have accomplished nothing. Absolutely nothing.
Persistently yours. Angie.
Life can be beautiful. Some people just have that natural ability to pop out of bed and just smile to greet the world with 100% of their energy. Others have to struggle. That’s ok. Which ever type you are, find that thing that makes you pop out of the bed and greet the world with enthusiasm. “Hello world, I’m here!” Then help someone else feel inspired. Inspire someone. Don’t forget to pass it on.
