Pain is a Given, So What Else Can You Create?

Ever have one of those days when everything is going your way; the world is beautiful and all is right? Yep, me neither, or at least not for a long time!

Life has a way of plotting its own course. We look and expect one thing and while we are not looking, something wonderful happens but since we didn’t see it, we miss it. The best things in life are unexpected surprises. Those people who have a grand plan and following to the letter are missing all the fun. It’s all about the journey man!

Yesterday I woke up with aches and pains which is normal for a man of my age. So I took a little time to deal with it all and placed those aches and pain on the back burner. Trusting my gut, I focused on a positive activity I very much like and before I knew it, the day was over and I couldn’t remember all the problems. I slept like a baby last night and yes, woke up to those aches and pains.

I’ve been writing songs for an upcoming album and have about half of them completed. The creative process is so much fun, however, the frustrating part are the changes. Wow, that sounds good, but someone already said the exact same thing in another song. Or I get some great suggestions from the Alpha Critics I have trusted. It’s all worth it as long as plan is going forward.
