So often what we focus on can bring us to a place that we need to pay attention to. I say this after an extremely emotional day of ups and downs. Yesterday Harry and I worked on putting together a video that is about child abuse. It was about my child abuse and therefor it was rather a difficult and painful place for me to go. None-the-less, I feel that it is an extremely important issue and I recognize that so long as I am coming from a pro-active place in my re-involvement with those memories then I can justify this discomfort.
As soon as we completed filming I said, “O. K. Now lets go out and be with friends and talk about positive things like, my new book Soul Talking – “Wisdom in Rhyme”. So we did that and, lo and behold, we met some wonderful people and had truly positive connections there and the buzz about my book gave me such a high – I felt great.
From there we went to the local theater to see “Precious”. This was an amazing movie and so well done – but of course, due to content, very difficult to watch. Once again I connected to the importance of the issue of child abuse. I also spent time after the movie ended talking to various people about the importance of opening our eyes to what we, as individuals, can do to bring awareness to child abuse and how we can make a difference by being involved.
Being involved in conversation about what we can do, to be involved in bringing assistance to all those in need, is in itself a high.
These highs and lows that I experienced yesterday only compounded my desire to make a difference in this world through my words and my music. So I encourage you to get yourself a copy of Soul Talking “Wisdom in Rhyme” by clicking on the link to the right of this page.
