You're Not a Failure, You're Just Impatient

We're often impatient because we're living according to someone else's timeline. Patience doesn't mean you sit around and do nothing. It means you respect the time it takes for things to play out. Shit takes time and technology has us all expecting to get everything instantly. Anything longer than 3 seconds and we huff and puff in impatience, and that's fucking with our mental health. The reason meditation is so beneficial isn't because it gives you magic powers to read minds and float in the air, but it does help you bring focus to what's important, and find peace in patience.

Money comes and goes, friends come and go.. time just goes

I recieved a message once from a family member of a fan letting me know they played my song 'Goodbye' at her funeral. When you think about making art and having a fanbase, you never think about the idea that you may outlive some of them. Imagine a world were people were as violently protective of their time as they were their bank accounts. •We all know we don't have infinite time on this planet, nor do any of us know exactly how much time we have left, yet we act, stress, and dilly dally like we'll be here forever. Thinking about death can cause existential dread, it's a trip for the brain to process it's own ending, but we...
