I am dropping by to say hello. What can I say about this last month? There have been many situations where I have had to stop and let go. Realize that I can’t rush in and save the day. My habit has been to do this. It is a habit I am trying to change.
Someone told me recently that this is something that type A people do. They see everything as urgent. I have told myself that if no one is bleeding it isn’t urgent. Then we have this life of COVID and there is an urgency in a different way.
On the positive side there have been fewer decisions to make. This has been a relief.
So what I’m trying to say is, I am trying to drop the whole urgency thing. In my personal life for sure and I am trying to remember this as I go about all things music as well. Yes, I have lots I want to get done before I release my EP in the fall but none of it is really urgent. At least not in a true sense.
It is essential and perhaps urgent that we need to care for ourselves and the communities in which we live. I try to offer some care for myself and others by the music I share. This work is essential in its own way. I am leaving the more difficult job of being a healthcare professional to others.
My suggestions are these- do your best, be kind and lend yourself and others some grace.
As always with love,
