I have been living in Johannesburg for about 5 months now. Playing a whole bunch of exciting shows and feeling greatful and blessed for being able to make people smile and confidently call myself a musician. I must say the most exciting show I have played this year was OppiKoppi. WHAT A BLAST! People were singing along and some of you were wearing Tailor T-shirts.What an awesome feeling. Inspired indeed, I was.
So what’s been up for you guys?- Thank you so much for reading my blogs and making me feel so welcome in your hearts.
I have been writing new songs. All good pieces (of course I would say so haha) But seriously ,I have been pushing myself creatively like I have never done before. With The Dark Horse, it was real simple. I had a life time to write my debut album. This time, I feel I am scraping from the bottom of the creative BRAIN well. Every last bit of bits I can find I am writing about. Which makes it challenging but OH SO GOOD! You see…. In this way I am challenging myself to think outside of the box. Outside of that dark box I was living in for a long time. I have found new ways of seeing love, life and writing. I can’t wait for you to hear the new sound. I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas…. To my fans -thank you for being so patient.
This is it…. the new and continuous road I have chosen as a woman and as a musician.
We all find right at the right time. Boy Oh Boy does it take long though! But it’s exactly in those moments you are supposed to start thanking and stop complaining aaaaand …guess what…WAIT and sometimes wait some more. Because just when things get really difficult in that process of waiting the answer is just around the corner. We all go through this,,,the waiting period of it all. It is the most difficult stage of our prayers. And once we receive what we oh so badly want, we will jump on to the next wish for our lifes. We all will find The right at the right time. The key is to WAIT.
My best friend has been waiting , what to her feels like forever, for the right man. She keeps saying ” I am just gonna go back to my old boyfriend bacause, I miss him and even though I know he is no good for me I still miss the familiarity but most of all the security.
Most of the time, the things we so often miss from our past are things that triggered some kind of happiness and safety. But only the type of love and happiness we think we deserved at that time. We often miss the idea of…not the actual person or dream or even life.
Move away from what you think is wrong and move towards the right. And even if it’s only right for right now. DO IT. If you feel that your heart is seeking that particular love or dream. Go for it. Cause even if it’s a mistake. “That” mistake, will lead you on to the next journey. The next wish- the next new LOVE.
I have been waiting and I have found. And even if it meant waiting 7 years for the right. I have waited.
I pray you will find it too. WAIT….patiently:)
