It’s a home wrecker.
I’ve been back from Morocco for a few weeks now and it has been a struggle in the studio. The clashing of what I knew with what I know now has put me in a state of panic and anxiety. I’ve raised the bar for myself and I’m uncomfortable. Cognitive dissonance we used to call it in education. It’s supposed to be a good learning place; well it’s the sh*ts.
Fast forward. It’s hard for me to create something and not have it work out. I can’t just leave it and move on. There’s a level of completion that has to happen before I can drop the focus. If you call me during this mental mode I will not answer the phone. Don’t try texting or email because I have it set in airplane mode.
The drive for perfection is a realtime nightmare.
My nightmare ended the day I woke up realizing I was the missing piece. That my contribution mattered.
And so do yours. So get out there and rep it out.
