i feel as though i’ve deeply neglected u dear blog… and i apologize… i was knocked the —- out… i had to do 2 shows (one on my death bed) and i transcended… i set the intention and became a vessel of love! the performance was an act of fearlessness i must say!! yay! through prayer (one Christian prayer given by my dear friend oshana that brought me to tears and one jewish blessing given by husband jered in beautiful hebrew)/through affirmations/through herbs/through whole food’s wellness formula, through sea salt baths/through thyme tea/etc/etc…i now embody divine health!!! which lead me to last night’s performance @ harvelle’s which was very off the cuff with some super gifted musicans…and it was so freeing to sing with musicians that are so sensitive, communicative, innovative, and solid… sooooooo much fun! i felt elated and so at home. i’m growing and it feels goooooood!!!! i loved the exploration, the improvisation… i love that feeling of freedom in music! que rico!
on another note, the current book i’m reading, the 7 habits of highly effective people, brought up something for me… which has inspired me to take on a new challenge for the month of december that will hopefully turn into a habit…i aim to take full responsibility for my reactions to the challenges that arise in my life… the book brings up that we cannot control what happens in our lives but we can control how we react to what happens to us…(and in this ability to choose how we respond- lies our responsibility or response-ability)…. i’m becoming increasingly conscious of my response-ability… here’s a great quote to remind us of how we determine our happiness by how we react to what challenges arise in our lives….”the fountain of content must spring up in the mind, and he who hath so little knowledge of human nature as to seek happiness by changing anything but his own disposition, will waste his life in fruitless efforts and multiply the grief he proposes to remove.” samuel johnson… mmmmm yes. more soon….
