Because it works, it feels good…no need to analyze or justify, if something keeps you working on your goals, frees you from negative monkey mind, just keep doing it for Gods’ sake!
What does it take to get you (i. e. me) in your own corner, rooting for yourself? You (I) root for others and would never think of saying, “so…you find blogging a great benefit…oh well, don’t bother, you’re too busy, you don’t have anything to say…”
…and yet that kind of self talk is what kept me away from blogging.
One of my favorite parts about this blog is when I post a jazz video. Then when I begin practicing guitar I have a vivid sound and picture of why I am putting in all this effort on drills and such…Today’s video is by jazz guitar icon Grant Green, with a great band backing him up.
For me, it is imperative that I watch role models doing things that I aspires to. Rather than compare myself and feel I have fallen short, I love hearing the great jazz, it ignites my desire to play the best I can, to allow myself to picture the gigs I plan to get, and picture them going fantastically, and the venues inviting me to come and play all the time, for a decent amount of money or other compensation.
You see, just writing that makes it seem possible, not a distant pipe dream…it makes me wanna up my guitar practice to 7 a day..not hard at all.
I hope my story helps you to start blogging again if you have drifted away like me.
