So it happened. I had every intention to record for my podcast and work on some music promotions for my artist brand [ROOTED Kingdom]. My day started 4:00 AM with a smile and I am grateful to have another day on this Earth. I freshened up to start my day and decided it was time to go to work. I did some meditation and after enjoyed a cup of coffee. After, I decided it was time.
As I sat in the studio instead of working on some promos just as I was supposed to, I decided to do something else. I worked on my new beat project for my RK Beats catalog instead. It was so much fun I got lost in this world of music production and didn't even touch my music promos or record audio for my podcast. Oh well, I figured I could do it later and continued to work on my beats some more.
I looked at the time and it was about 8:00 AM and I still didn't feel like working. I played video games instead. I have been playing Zelda: Breath of the Wild on my Nintendo Switch and did that for about 2 hours. I looked at the time and it was already 11:00 AM. So I said to myself "okay, for real this time, I need to get to work". I started to work, but then stopped and began working on my beats again. I just wasn't feeling it, I didn't want to do anything that wasn't fun, so I didn't.
I felt a little bad for not doing what I was supposed to, but that's okay. I had an amazing break through on the beats I have been working on. I been wanting to add another sound to it, but for the past couple days I have hit a music wall [or creators block]. Finally it happened, I came up with an awesome melody and layers to go with it. I was in so much joy that I kept working and I was enjoying the music I have created. I started to wonder if I would not have been working on my beats, I wouldn't be where I wanted to be in the song. So, I didn't feel so bad. Point is, I am not taking myself too seriously and just simply enjoying the little things that make me happy.
I haven't felt like recording a new podcast episode so I am not going to. I feel like writing, so here I am, writing....er...typing [LOL]. Life ins't about always work, work, work, but its about enjoying the little things and doing what feels right at the moment. Especially being in the creative arts, my creativity doesn't come when its time to work, but it comes when I least expect it. Although I didn't do what I have intended to do, but I still feel accomplished. There's nothing more draining than to do something I don't feel like doing. Glad I had a studio session instead of working on music promos. I figured, it'll come when the time is right.
This may not be the best way to get things done, but I got other things done and it was no time wasted. I am feeling completely chill right now. Life is good, my family is healthy, and everyone is happy. I hope you all have a wonderful day. So, with all that being said, there won't be a podcast this Tuesday. I Was Going To, But Didn't.
