It isn't that I don't have anything to talk about. I have tons. So much has been happening here in music city. (If you've been looking at my pics on facebook) I took pics at the semi finals of "American Country Star" at the beginning of the month and then just a few nights ago when they went all the way down to 13. Then to 5. Then to 1 Ta- Dah. I also got to take some behind the scenes photos at a music video taping that Mike Jennings was producing. My partner from KSBT radio came up to spend some "real time" in Nashville and let me co-host a show. AND....Top - Notch Talent is on it's way to filling up it's holiday contest event. (Just look under 'events'.)
My clients list is growing and they, as well as my students really are 'Top-notch' So, with all this going on why the so called "block" or "hum drum" feeling about MY blog (???) I guess because this blog is supposed to be special. Not just a "What's happening" kind of thing or a calender. That is what I use the "events' page for. As a life coach (or career coach) I feel that I should have something wise to say. BUT...NADA..
Then, just a few minutes ago, I started asking myself why nada?...ANSWER- Well, things have been going so well lately. Then, I ask...Can't you write about that? ANSWER- NO? How boring to write about feeling at peace. WAIT....Did I just say I, ME, SUSAN that I feel at peace? About anything? I think I did. How can that be not worthy of writing about. Especially since it involves so many of YOU! And there you have it.
I started this blog back in January right after I became a certified coach. I was so impatient to get clients and to get involved in all these new projects. I knew that I could relate to everyone aspiring to make it in anything and feeling that they were spinning their wheels in the dirt. Because, I was feeling that way too. I had known for a few years that I wanted to do more but I didn't know what. After I got back from Texas, it was easy to write about these things. The climb, the struggle, the uncertainty.
The past few months. I have seen my hard work pay off. Not nearly where I want or need it to be. But, I have seen real changes financially and artistically and in the way I want to impact others. For me that is huge. I guess by not writing I was giving myself a minute to take a breath. And as I write this, I'm realizing that this is not the time to feel there is no wisdom. This is it. This is the proof. When you think of your goal all the time and work at it as much as you can. You will move forward.
Even if your goal is something really obscure like being an "entertainment life coach, who loves to take pics and would really love to be taken seriously for it and has a small company where she and another person produce contests and a bunch of other things that she can't even fit into a decent sentence."
I mean REALLY???? But, I swear to you I am so passionate about every one of those crazy things. And the past few months I have moved forward. If I can ...ANYONE can. Simply becasue, I bet you could fit your goal into a twitter post without going over the 160 allotment. I'm sure God, the universe and other people find it much easier to help you in your quest when it is laid out in an understanding way. So keep dreaming big are my words of wisdom. Certainly not original words. But, good, wise words.
Next month is Thanksgiving and I might be all fired up because I may feel as though the wind is being knocked out of my sails again. That is the way this life seems to run. I mean after a certain amount of decades hanging around here, we start picking up patterns. So, I guess we have to enjoy things when they are going well and remind ourselves of them so much when they aren't.
On another note, my sister and her family has been without electricity for 2 days. (Thanks Sandy) My cousins in Brooklyn I am told are okay. The New York City area looks like a war zone. To say that I am grateful that my family is together and safe is such an understatement. It really puts everything in perspective.
