I’m really slacking on my website here!
Also, I’m all about improving myself, so if you have tips on making my site/blog better, I’m all about it!
Well besides being consistent, I know I need to get my act together on that!
As I continue to browse the internet and look up things I don’t need to buy, I can’t help but think about how selfish I am with my career.
Let me explain:
I’ve come a long way from where I started when I was 22 years old. I’m still growing and learning as I always talk about. But what I haven’t talked about is all the sacrifices I’ve had to make to get to where I am.
My aunt died last week and if there is a funeral I’m pretty sure I won’t make it because I’ll be on tour. I’ve missed several family events, due to the fact that I’m 8/10 hours away or because I was off in my own little universe or sleeping on a bus. My friends that I hold near and dear to my heart, you know who you are. I’ve missed so many little moments with you and I’m so sorry. And to the love of my life, if there is one. I’m sorry to my knight and shining armor. I haven’t spent nearly as much time as I should trying to write my fairy tale ending. I hope you are still out there, my prince charming.
I don’t regret anything. I don’t. This is how my life panned out. But going forward, I’m going to focus on those I love.
The music industry is hard to get into. Guy or girl. You really need to have a personality, a good work ethic and great skill set. Unfortunately, majority of people can be really rude, so there goes one third of them. Unfortunately again, majority of people my generation feel that should have things handed to them. So again there goes another one third of the people. Then there are the people with skills. I would say another one third of the people don’t possess this.
So if you are good at math, you would need to know that even if you have two out the three, there’s a good chance you won’t get the job. The one I would say you could get away with is a crappy personality, because let’s face it, if you shut up and get the job done, that’s really all that matters.
So with that being said, I hate to compare my personal and professional life. But it is true, I’m starting to look at friends like they are clients. And if friends aren’t awesome, won’t put in the effort to create a great friendship and don’t utilize their strengths and put them to good use, I feel that makes you a very lazy friend.
My point is: No matter what in life, treat people the way you want to be treated. Work really hard at anything you do in life. And always remember good things come with time.
I’m filling out a form for a mentorship program in Nashville.
One of the questions for the form has is “What is your definition of success?”
And I thought about it really hard, because everyone has a different definition of what it means to be happy. As I’m writing it, I’m not actually sure what I truly think about it. Because everyday is different. Everyday I wake up wondering what the hell am I doing, wondering what will the day bring me, what will I do today.
Today, my definition of success would be to be laying next to my best friend. I’ve known her since I was two weeks old. What would I be doing with her, besides celebrating her birthday.Probably talking about our families,friends, boys and life. It’s so easy to be around her, I am inspired by her everyday.
I really hate the fact that I will not be there for her birthday, but I’m here trying to make my life happy and successful.
