The week is catching up with me, like that world record line that they show Olympic swimmers trying to beat. I don't think I'm gonna break any world record this week. It feels like I'm narcoleptic this morning. BUT! I am awake, and I'm writing my thoughts about everything and nothing, so there's that.
I got my first real check for toplining a song yesterday. It was a hip hop track that I added some bars and a hook over and it ended up getting put in to Math Club Music's catalog. It feels good to have a little breakthrough, a little boost of confidence that I hope will continue to build into a solid career as I put out more content and whatnot. Mostly whatnot.
I was thinking this morning, how true it is that life is what you make it. Sure, there are things that you can't control, events and circumstance that dictate to some degree what you are able to do. But there are a TON of choices that we can make to shape our life. I was thinking about all the little choices I make every day that can make or break the outcome I want for that day. I choose to get out of bed in the morning (most times ;)) instead of sleeping all day. And choices like write vs watching t.v., feeling sorry for myself vs getting to work. It's a constant cacophony of choices! Then there are bigger things like choosing where to live, when to start a relationship, when to seek help for life's trials and fires, etc.
So many choices shape us, and even though there's no guarantee we'll get 'em all right (in fact guaranteed we won't) I think if we're conscious about it we can make enough positive ones to shape ourselves into better, more loving, less emotionally detached, more successful people. Or you know, whatever you're going for. But one thing at a time. I am choosing to end this now. Hah.
