Chocolate chip muffin and strawberry lemonade? Wtf?
Thats my new addiction at Starbucks but who really gives a fuck. The only thing is that I wanted to mention it because you have to be good to yourself. You can’t go through life without actually being good to yourself. When you’re down and out, you gotta be good to yourself. When you’re on top of the world, you gotta be good to yourself. No one is going to do it for you. If you dont enjoy yourself, no one will enjoy you either. If you don’t celebrate yourself, no one will either. So be good to yourself.
I woke up and started to be good to myself right away. I picked up the guitar, I read a blog post, I went to Starbucks and bought a chocolate chip muffin, had it warmed up, and a strawberry lemonade refresher. Now I’m feeling refreshed. Now its back to work. Back to business. With my balls laying’ low and my thoughts on music. My music on my mind and my mind on my music.
I was tempted though. I could’ve gone the same old route and routine. But I said no. I know better. Everything thats bothering me, I accepted it. I let it be and I let the anger flow through me. It was real. It was tough so I took a nice, long sleep. Now its midnight. I’m at Starbucks. Eating a chocolate chip muffin and washing it down with a strawberry lemonade refresher.
Now I’ll go drive some people around for some instant cash. Then who knows…maybe I’ll whip out my guitar. I realized that too many times in my life I did what others thought I should do. I had no backbone. Here’s to my backbone. I now do what I want, when I want, how I want and with whom I want. Okay, maybe not yet, maybe not exactly like that but pretty close.
The point is…be good to yourself. Then, your mind is clear to work on your music. Or whatever project you’re working on. I look around and people look miserable, but really I’m the one thats miserable because Im looking around at people being miserable instead of being good to myself.
I think I’ll go learn those chords now, the ones I saw earlier on my desktop, they look pretty damn cool…
