I'm excited about this mixtape. I've been listening to it over and over. I listened to it in the car when Edith and I were traveling from my hometown Springfield, Missouri all the way up to Chicago, Illinois to catch our flight back to London. It was an 8 hour drive so I went through a lot of music.
This mixtape is quite fitting at the moment because I've been questioning a lot of things in my life. Asking myself, am I happy, am I content, am I allowing myself a break? I'm normally the most motivated person I know, but lately I've been lacking motivation. I woke up one morning and everything seemed to change.
I've decided to slow down, to take a step back and find my feet again and I've accepted that its ok to slow down. I've worked my ass off for the last several years and I never gave myself a break, so I am now. I'm not stopping, just slowing down.
We live in a society that expects us to go at full speed all the time and it's not possible and its actually unhealthy. I'm taking time to find what makes me truly happy, focus on friendships and my family and to better my creative skills.
I'm still working away, but at a slower pace and I don't feel bad about this. To be honest, I think my life will improve and my business will too.
Don't be afraid to take a step back and question yourself and where you treat the moment. You could be exactly where you need to be.
Happy Tuesday and happy listening.
