From the Heart: For the Love of Rhyme and Reason
I almost lost my way again. For the past few weeks, I’ve been going over old notes, and actually contemplated trying to make some kind of case with a bunch of numbers and charts and links and videos. I thought I’d learned this lesson already, but apparently I had to review it one last time. It’s not worth it. It’s not worth agitating powerful people and possibly saying things I don’t mean or will regret. It’s not worth paranoia. It’s not worth my happiness. My intentions are good, but I gotta keep it simple.
I want to play music. I want to travel. I want to have fun and meet new friends. There’s no reason I need to complicate things any further beyond those goals. People who get it, will get it. People who don’t, won’t. There’s no use in presenting an argument. Just be thankful there are others out there who share your passions. Go find them, connect, create, and be happy. Life is too short for anything else.
I want to help people, and I hope to along the way. But you can’t help some people by asking others to change. People help themselves. They change if they want to. You can be supportive, but stay in your lane, and mind your own business. Especially if you don’t understand the situation.
It’s great to have an ideal vision for the world in your head, but all you can really do is pinpoint what you want for yourself, and just hope to manifest a bit of that ideal in your own world when you can.
Trying to change others is a losing endeavor, and trying to change the world will just leave you lost.
I’ll be shifting my focus to music from this point forward. Learning, practicing, writing and recording.
I’ll try to post updates on my progress at least every other week, but the blog is no longer top priority.
Time to stop worrying about the world – and start living my life.
Time to start Musicianing.
Third time’s the charm…
