We may all be living in different realities, working in different fields, passionate about different things, but one thing is the same for all of us: Every day we live emotions and feelings that are triggered by what happens around us and in us. This past week I lived plenty of different emotions! First, it’s kind of special and funny to wake up to the sound of a hungry horse! Lol!! Queen, our pony, is definitely adding to the happiness of my surreal life! She’s proof on four legs that the most unexpected little dream is possible and can take life in a way I couldn’t even imagine!
But my days are far from hanging around all day and playing with the pony… We’re working on seeing our dream go further. We’re spending countless hours in the studio and even though we are very careful about keeping a positive attitude and ambiance, we still live frustrations when we don’t seem to find the sound, the music, the direction we are looking for the songs of the album. I have to admit I do feel disappointed when we leave the studio late at night and realize we will not keep anything of what we recorded that day…yeah… it happens… I know we build so much more than music and that we don’t waste our time, but I know too that “time” is running fast and I struggle between wanting to do things fast enough to deliver an amazing album as soon as possible, and taking the time we need to deliver an album with no compromise, a real album we will be proud of and ready to die for, as it will be so true and represent exactly what is in our hearts.
We all have different ways to handle that stress. Sometimes we do make mistakes and hurt each other by not being sensitive to the others or by being too self-absorbed. The good thing is, if we don’t see our own mistakes and reach out to apologize, covering each other with healing love, someone else will step in and help us realize what is going on and encourage us to take care of what’s most precious: our relationships.
These relationships are life giving. It’s so exciting to share with my family, with all of you what we are creating! In only a few days/hours, we’ll be living together the Bla Bla Bla: The Live Show. We’ll be performing LIVE, giving you exciting news and I’ll be launching my very first jewelry collection…Such an adventure! So meaningful to me…another proof that we can live the unexpected through hard work, strong passion and open hands.
And Up… And Down… Emotions and moods are influenced by the good and bad things happening, but what helps me, helps all of us is our commitment to push through all the challenges together… our desire to live to the fullest and savor each moment for what it is, living the amazing moments and the struggles equally, with the same honesty as they both create a bond between us… In Ups and Downs, we can be confident that we grow, that we don’t need to control everything, but as we let go, we are free… We’re not giving up… We’re not quitting when it’s difficult or sad or frustrating…but we’re letting go with the faith that difficult times won’t destroy us but will bring us further and allow us to enjoy even more the joys and happy moments.
Next Sunday will definitely be a big UP! The Bla Bla Bla is always a happy moment we share and where the unexpected ALWAYS shows up! I love this guest: “The Unexpected”. I know I need that kind of up and I want to live it with you! See you Sunday my dear family…
