Humble Pie

This morning's horoscope was interesting.  It reminded me that my talents were gifts from the universe and I should keep my ego in check and let go of any attachments that I had about concerning my talents.
It was a splash of cold water on my face.

For the past few months, I have had this absurd need for validation concerning my music.  I am not sure where or how it developed, but it had grown and festered.  In my past my music has always been an incredible source of joy, pure absolute joy.  Somehow the seed had been planted and had grown
immensely in my brain that I needed validation...more bookings, more fans, more, more, more.

That little horoscope brought it all back into perspective today. It was a reality check.
Have you ever had a reality check?  It is unsettling to be going on your merry way, all smug and secure and life yells at you.

So today I have eaten humble pie, readjusted my sights, realigned and rechecked ego and dreams.
Humble pie is not tasty, but it sticks with you.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams


  1. It's human nature to never be satisfied and always wanting more. You are very wise to have picked up on the message the Horoscope had for you. We can't be happy when we crave more.

    I read a book way back from John Powell, Why am I Afraid to Tell You Who I Am. It has changed the way I looked at my talent of singing. For me being somewhat of an introvert I was afraid to sing in public.

    That book made me realize that my talent was a gift that I had to share. I didn't give me that gift but it was a gift from God so i had nothing to boast about but it was my responsibility to develop it and share it.

    I always say that we own nothing and everything is gifts.

    Have a great day.

  2. My children get a disapproving look on their faces, shake their heads, and quietly say, "Don't do that." Bursts my self-important bubble right away.
