D.I.Y. Rock Star Rewind: One step back, Two steps forward….(April 2023) 👯‍♂️

One step back…

–Got knocked around just a little to find out that my bad choices in high school flooded my psyche for about a whole week…. I will spare all particular details, except to say that it took a week to forgive myself for being a super fucked up and needy 9th grader. –What threw me off is that I don’t think I had really forgiven myself for KNOWING that I was fucking up and not stopping it sooner. THAT was DEFINITELY a step back in my evolution.

Two steps forward…

Finally, after fighting with myself for a week, I realized that part of the benefit of going through that shit was to know WHY I am so adamant that I follow my instincts and intuition now, so that, when I find myself in a situation that feels not even as icky as that one, I stand up for my own core values and back out of it BEFORE it turns into a year and a half of shit that I can’t even bare to tell my own daughter…. 🙄I thank the Lord that I am wiser and that I continue to make choices that honor my strengthening value for myself.

Know Yourself (to move forward as a D.I.Y. Rock Star):

Self-respect can’t be “given”

The thing is that NO ONE could “give” me that self-respect; I had to earn it through that fucked up situation. THIS is what made me finally forgive myself; I knew that I feel to stay grounded in what I believe and what feels expressive for me may not even exist, if I had NOT been that fucked up kid. So, when I say that I have a PASSION for NOT allowing myself to follow the trends or to make music that is not genuine to what we are feeling, I MEAN IT! 💥

–And the ONE great thing about the night is that daylight signals a positive, new way forward. That’s why I am SO excited to be giving birth to this new album, Obtanium Flow. –No, it’s not out yet, but right now we call it “a many flavors of reggae album with some Michael Jackson melodies” and KNOW that playlisting, bloggers, fans are going to have to be brave to champion it, since it really doesn’t sound like whatever else is spinning on most turntables. But we’re okay with that….

Why do I need to market (as a D.I.Y. Rock Star)?

Thank YOU!
