Some simple words of encouragement for the day. Sometimes it’s easier to believe in the power of others than to believe in yourself but the heart has its way of quietly reminding us that there is a wisdom within all of us that will see us through if we will just trust in it. For the past three days I’ve been struggling with trusting my own vision and trusting my own heart so these were words of encouragement I definitely needed. I hope that it can be so for someone else too. 😊
“When you go after Ciroc vodka and Phat Farm and all that sh*t, God walks out of the room. I have never in my life made music for money or fame…No way. God walks out of the room when you’re thinking about money. You could spend a million dollars on a piano part and it won’t make you a million dollars back. That’s just not how it works….You’ve got to respect the gift God gave you by learning your craft.”
~ Quincy Jones
Some words I found to be inspiring from an amazing music producer that I think can be applied to any creative craft.
Should never be offered to the mouth
Of a Stranger,
Only to someone
Who has the valor and daring
To cut pieces of their soul off with a knife
Then weave them into a blanket
To protect you.” ~ Hafiz
Everyone isn’t entitled access to the inner workings of your soul. Only those who have earned the privilege should be given a peek into the mystery of your being.
…another favorite quote of mine by Frank Lloyd Wright. 😊
A little reminder from my favorite architect, for those moments when I get distracted or discouraged from staying my course.
