**Blog from January 2017**
I haven’t blogged in a while so I thought it was time to share a few thoughts 😊
As the band and I start putting provisions together for our debut gig, I’m looking back at this time last year when I honestly didn’t know where I should venture musically. I knew I needed something and somewhere for my own music but I didn’t know what. I was quite busy promoting my wedding business and working on that but as for my personal music I wasn’t so sure. I had so many doubts that I would ever have success with it. I even thought about closing down this page as I thought I was chasing a dream that wasn’t going to happen for me. It would have been easy for me to do that but it would have brought a lifetime of regrets.
I did not know last January, that I would meet my band in June. I didn’t know I’d be planning venues, songs, guest lists etc. I could have let health issues, personal life issues or doubts stop me from putting myself out there. No one would have blamed me as I had very good reason to.
Slick District are only beginning the start of a great musical future, whether that be gigging around our country or becoming millionaires (we wish lol) no one knows how far we’ll go but all I know is, we are going to enjoy the journey to wherever we end up. It’s the hard work we put in, in hope that we become something significant that drives us. It’s all about the music. Yes the goal is important, everyone sets goals and aims to meet them. However it’s the road that takes us there that is most important. That’s where the memories will be.
We can’t let our experiences in life, determine what we do with ourselves. We can’t let our dreams rest on the thought that it should be easy. Hobbies should be easy, it’s your time out to relax and enjoy yourself. Although there’s a big difference between a past time and a dream. A dream is something we cannot go a day without thinking about. They keep you up at night working on them. A dream is something that sets our souls on fire, something that defines us as people. It is passion set alight.
Who knows, maybe this time next year I will be blogging with much more amazing things I will proud of. The sky is the limit!!
Stay positive and work hard 😊
