Change doesn’t just happen for most of us. For most of us, change begins with an inner wrestling. We pray and hope for our environments to change. Sometimes, the answer to our requests come in the form of a nagging feeling inside, an urge to take one step.
On the verge of completing my second short album entitled, “Show You”, I feel a great sense of gratitude for those who have partnered with me to make this project a reality.
Teamwork and collaboration are invaluable and exciting. Being part of a collective mission reveals so much about humanity, adventure, and fruitfulness.
Strive to be an uplifting team-player in whatever vocation you are in.
My friend posted something last night on Facebook that I really liked. He spoke about the nature of being an introvert, and I completely identified with what he said in terms of our strengths and apparent shortcomings. “I don’t small chat well,” he said, or something like that, “but I have my passions,” meaning, you get him talking about something he is passionate about and he will talk for hours about it.
I would add this. It’s not that I am shy, or that I don’t like to talk to people. It’s that inside I have an ingrained need to listen, to observe, and to appreciate the voices, sites and sounds around me. Bolstered in me is the habit of quiet observance, a taking in of the world, like walking through a timeless museum. For what one may consider mundane, I perceive as significant, and sometimes, breathtaking.
