Life kicks you around once in awhile. People don’t always understand what you’re trying to do.
There are days when everything goes wrong. A client lays you off due to lack of work. A virtual stranger sends a not so nice email. Your husband is laid up with a back injury.
You wonder what you’re doing. Will I ever get this thing called a lifetime right?
Losing confidence in yourself can really set you back. Your doubts and fears keep you awake at night. Will I succeed? How do we pay the bills? Am I dreaming an unrealistic dream? Will the doors ever open? Does anyone care?
In the end, there are only so many minutes and hours and days in a lifetime. We are all responsible for our own happiness. Are you going to wallow in self-pity or pick yourself up and keep going?
These are the times when I turn up the volume, block out the noise, and through the magic of music, I calm my weary soul and start a new story. Every day there’s a story to write. A new chapter. A fresh start. It’s true what they say. Yesterday is over. Tomorrow may never come. All we have is today. This minute, this hour, this day. How do you want to spend it?
“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.” ~Ernest Hemingway
