It's #gratitude week, so on this Monday, I'm grateful for the career and opportunities I already have in music.
It's honestly a little difficult for me to post this, because I've had a number of challenging professional setbacks lately.
My confidence is shaken. I'm not where I want to be.
But I also know that focusing only on what I don't have isn't actually going to help me get any of it. So, it's time to look around at what I already have created - all of the evidence that I can make/find performance opportunities and earn money doing in music - appreciate it, and move forward.
