Why Create On?

Why Create On???

You must learn to take the talents that you have and create a movement with them. Embrace your CANs and not the CANNOTs. This idea came to me over the course of an emotionally down trotting year. A year full of confusion and doubt yet excitement and hope. As a KeepCalm33performer of over 20 years, I have had my fair share of rejections and let me tell you…I must be nuts out of my mind to still be continuing on this path. And you know what? I don’t care. I love what I do. I love finding the strength and hope to keep trucking at it. Finding in yourself what sets you apart from other people, other artists. Expressing what little idiosyncrasies you have and embracing them.

This is meant to be for the “every artist”.  I am sure you have heard of the term “everyman”. Well I started penning Keep Calm and Create On because I found myself dealing with issues that every day artist go through on a daily basis: the duality of working a 9 to 5 job only to get off your shift and rehearse/perform until the midnight hour. It was all too familiar! Originally starting as a blog, I began receiving messages and emails from people who were followers of my journey and work.

Those blogs became the talking points for a book I am officially publishing and touring in 2017! I hope that you find the strength, magnificence, and love within yourself to be the true artist that you are destined to be.

Permission.

Permission.

Don’t you hate it when you get a pebble in your shoe?  Somehow that little bugger just sneaks up in there and puts a damper in your step. I mean, even for the briefest of moments, it slows down everything and you spend that moment shaking your foot vigorously to get it out of there. So annoying, right? Funny, that’s how people or circumstances can pop into your life. Even though in the grand scheme of things it is a short-lived second, but it seems to consume everything.

Don’t let anything or anyone slow you down. Sometimes a situation may occur that seems to destroy all of the progress that you have made. Look at it as a “pebble”:  shake it out of the way and keep on stepping! Don’t ever give anyone the permission or power to stop you. The only time you should slow down and stop…is to bend down to tie your shoe.

Adventures.

Adventures.

X marks the spot…. The pot of KeepCalm31gold at the end of the rainbow. Have you ever notice what all of these have in common? They all have to be sought after. None of these treasures come to you without having to seek out some type of adventure or take some type of path to find them. You are the treasure within yourself.

Why did you think that everything that you’ve ever wanted in life will come easy when you are your own greatest adventure?

Think about it…

Tunnel.

Tunnel.

I have the luxury of passing through KeepCalm30tunnels on a daily basis. What is truly fascinating about tunnels is that…it is a contraption that can literally span across bodies of water connecting it to land. So in essence, if you think of the paths you are traveling on in life as tunnels CONNECTING you from one point to the other then you will not Continue reading
