WARNING: deep post ahead. In honor of my bday, just wanted to explain why my life goals this year are 1. Acceptance and 2. Authenticity. About 3 years ago, I made a major decision that I thought would bring me all I'd ever dreamed - but in reality, it ended up feeling more like I accidentally hit the self destruct button on everything I thought I knew about life and who I was in this world. I'll spare details and specifics, but in a nutshell, I lost my job, lost any money I did have, lost the comfort of even having a place to sleep, lost friends, made enemies, lost the love and attention of many who mattered to me (some I didn't realize how much mattered), even childhood wounds came to the surface, while the stress of it all cost me my musical abilities for long periods...but worst of all, I eventually lost my hope and desire to live at all. Someone who had previously spent 6 days a week preaching the power of positivity to young music students, now wanted to end his own life...many times. According to what I've read, this has been a classic case of what spiritual teachers call "The Dark Night of the Soul" - a slow and painful breakdown of the old to make space for the new improved version of myself. Maybe this post will find someone in the darkest of their night. It wasn't until I learned how to ACCEPT things as they are (not how I think they should be), that I found the beauty in every day. And it wasn't until I learned how to be AUTHENTIC about who I am (not who I thought others wanted me to be), that I found my purpose in this world. While I do fail with these goals often, I feel I am finally putting myself back together one piece at a time. So this year, you'll find me in my hometown waiting tables, teaching music, probably in an under armour shirt, working on an album (#TheYearOfHonesty) with no expectations on who's gonna like it or who's even listening - and spending time with people I love (regardless of their age, gender, color, sexual preference, religion, etc). This year I'm giving myself the best birthday gift of all - I'm allowing me to be me, you to be you, and life to be as it is. HBD everyone!
