I'm dedicating this post to my sister, for giving me exposure to new ideas and always encouraging me to think outside the box to form new concepts and expand on my ideas.
I just flew back to Boston from a recent visit to Chicago, the good ol' Windy City!
Chicago is home to me. It's always wonderful to see family and friends I haven't seen in a while to catch up. And it's good to check in every once in a while with your family to see what they're doing and how they're doing. My sister and I recently started making a habit to check in with each other. Even if it's not every day, we tag each other in posts on Instagram or share an inspiring quote with each other to stay connected.
I enjoy talking to my sister because we're both in the entertainment industries and we exchange ideas on what works and what doesn't. However we respectfully disagree at times, and that's okay. Because people are different. People who are different from you can offer knowledge and information for you to learn. That's what my sister did during my visit. She said something to me that was similar but new:
"envision and manifest in the things you want most in life and it will come true".
I relate to it because it's something I do frequently as an artist. Part of my performance ritual is to close my eyes and imagine myself on stage playing the music I'm performing. This helps reduce performance anxiety and play my best, manifesting in that situation.
But my sister was talking about manifesting in the grand scheme of things. If you think about what you want, envision what you want, and believe that it will happen, then it WILL happen. Like Yphrum's law, everything that can work, will work.
So, I encourage you to believe. Write that song you've been putting off for a while, have a friend make you accountable if you get lazy, manifest in the things you want most.
Believe in yourself, believe that you can do it. Whatever "it" is, pursue your dream. We live in a society where big corporations make you forget about your dreams with a dollar amount. Don't be that person. Do what you love, love what you do, and believe that you can do it.
