Tonight I totally kicked fear in the butt. I started working on a song that I wrote the lyrics to a few years back, and for the first time in my life I did not give into discouragement. Lyrics are one thing…words have always come easy to me, but music has always been my weak spot in writing.
For years I have wanted to write songs. For years I have gotten words about writing songs. For years I have sat down at my parents baby grand to write, and for years I have gotten quickly discouraged. But even though I only took a few minutes to write tonight, I left my keyboard and little writing corner encouraged. I left it excited to come back and work more. It was the first time in my life I hadn’t gotten discouraged writing music.
Tonight breakthrough tasted like hope. Tonight possibility was in the air. Tonight fear had to leave, because creativity and life took it’s place.
