It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace & gratitude.”
For me personally, it takes a lot of work, a focus on forgiveness and not reacting to family and friends who often just don't get it. Over the years I've been much more comfortable going on a bombing run than just being gracious. I've got a secret weapon though, my wife Sheila, who over the years has worked hard to get me to remember, "Don't bomb and don't respond to bombs!"
For those of you who don't have Sheila in your life, sorry she's not available for "outpatient" support...LOL. However, I'm betting everybody has a spouse or truly good friend you can lean on to get you through the tough times so that nothing trumps grace !
We're part of an amazing industry. Be proud of your career choice to be an artist. Love what you do and share that passion with your family and friends and this being a Sunday, just kick back and appreciate the fruits of your labor. Raise the bar and bring in a little grace now and then - it's so much more calming than the alternatives.
As always, hug somebody you love - make it a great day and as my buddy, Matthew Jordan Smith, says, " Always Dream Big!"
Happy Sunday everybody!
