Exactly what I needed to read today! A nice reminder to just BE, and let the ego GO.
I honestly can say I never really sought “fame”, but the inner struggle of wanting to be properly noticed for our efforts will always be there. Luckily, I learned early on that I could earn a decent living making music, and still walk down the street unnoticed; which in my opinion is the very best of both worlds!
However, I do constantly have to deal with ignorant judgments of what I choose to do with my life, because it is not a “normal” 9-5 job. It was rather acceptable in NYC, but not so much elsewhere. Apparently following a “one-in-a-million” childhood dream and running your own record label accounts for nothing? One day I finally came to the realization that regardless how much money I make or recognition I receive, society will never consider it “work”, so I better just get over it now and just BE.
