Well today is a tough day…
Went to the barbershop and caught up with a good friend of mines who asked me how was I doing. In all honesty, that was a trick question to me, cause part of me feels that everything is getting better but other part of me feels that I ain’t going NO WHERE when it comes to my music. So I hesitated in answering his question…which was totally weird on my part.
My friend later asked me was I blocking out some time to work on new music and some “me” time… The crazy part was that I found that very hard to answer… Years ago it was easy for me to have some “me” time but now being a father and husband I find it very difficult to isolate myself from my family. It hit me… I can’t seem to get away for a long time from my family. In one way that’s good and the other it’s bad.
I love being a father and husband. I take pride in it, but there’s a time where you have to isolate yourself and reconnect to what you’re called to do. My calling is music and I’ve allowed it to suffer tremendously (for a good cause, LOL) and I’m having difficulty in getting my groove back.
So I finally admit… I’m in a FUNK! I’m trying my best today to get out of it and shake it off. So far, being in my studio (downstairs of my house, LOL) is helping. I realize that I have to force myself out of the funk before it’s too late. Therefore, I will be making a conscious effort on setting aside time from family and work and getting back to my music.
I am planning on releasing a new album next month (don’t ask me how, LOL), therefore TIME IS MONEY!
Let’s see where this goes…
