As a singer, songwriter and performer; I’ve always had to get lost in a public place. It’s really a paradox if you think about it. Artists have to share a message that is so profoundly personal and project it into the world. The intention is to share that vulnerability to resonate and relate with others. But first, it must resonate with you.
No matter the craft or journey, we all have to find our message. What story are you trying to tell? You need to create intimacy with yourself to understand who you are. Listen to your voice in a quiet place over and over, so you can become familiar with it and confidently use it. Freedom comes from embracing your will.
It’s almost like creating a relationship with yourself. Give yourself the time you need to think things through and to listen. So often we rush to seek approval from others, but what about approval from yourself? Don’t neglect your judgment.
