Labor of Love

Labor of Love

Labor of love.

Being in a band is hard work. We love to make it look easy on stage, but it truly is a labor of love. Dealing with different personalities and egos on a very intimate level with something everyone is passionate about is trying and unforgiving at times. But it is true, nothing good comes easy. We work long hard hours to experience that bliss with the audience. That musical connection, that synergy where everyone in the room is vibing to the same groove for that moment in time and space. That makes it all worth while. The reciprocation of love from the instrument to the audience. We are blessed to have the gift of listeners to share this love with. Thank you friends and family! See those of you who can make it next Friday!

Excuses are useless. Like nails in your coffin, they only help secure your failures. Failure is to never have dreamed. Failure is to never have chased that dream. Failure is cashing that dream in for complacency and acceptance of the lies you have inherited. Failure is justifying those lies instead of challenging them. There is nobody holding you back. There is no reason why you can’t keep on moving forward. Ownership of fear is your biggest threat. Wipe those self canceling thoughts clean. You are mighty, you are important, and your dreams are valid. So instead of an ice challenge I challenge you to dream. I challenge you to passionately chase that dream. I challenge you to become exceptional in the pursuit of that dream. I challenge you to never give up and keep on moving forward. For the world is yours for the taking.
