And I Played

I have played a song here or there in the last few months with various bands backing me up. Last night however I was alone on a stage with at least forty pairs of eyes looking at me wondering if I would be any good at all. I will say based on reaction applause and the fact I was asked to play again tonight in another place I was not only not bad I was actually good. Today is a good day.

How I did this was by changing my life in, so many ways, embracing the possibilities and practicing till it hurt. I kept it up while still perusing this blog and getting out of gate writing my book.
With effort and fortitude we can all achieve a dream.
Are you reaching for your dreams or just wishing they come true? To get what you want you must do the work!
I like it in the lights and the high of a room of applause is better than any drug.
Are you doing the work or just wishing your dreams come true?
