And Now For 2017: I can’t stop thinking about all that has happened in 2016. It was a major landmark year in my life. I am still overly emotional about it. But, now it is time to face 2017.
Musically there are some great opportunities on the horizon. The completion of the new ‘Into The Black’ album being one of the most challenging and exciting.
There is also the new RokChix project, which should be immense fun, and more Houses Of The Holy, True Spirit & Dark Universe shows.
Personally, I face more mountains to climb. The highest being the one I place before myself.
My expectations often exceed my capabilities, and lofty ideals have many times led to disappointment. The first step is to be rational and set realistic goals.
Setting the bar too high has its benefits, but sometimes you have to be happy with smaller wins or else end up in that ‘dark’ place yet again.
That also goes for my new post transition life. If only I could relax and smell the roses, to slow down and just be for a while. Alas, that is never moi, but it is a lesson I must learn.
A new year’s resolution there may be in that last statement.
“Don’t try so hard and let what will be, be”.
