Write about now…

Every time I consider giving up on writing, performing, or getting published the universe smacks me upside the head with a cue card that reads “THAT’s NOT IN THE SCRIPT.” The words “give up” have never been a part of this life I was put here to lead. Recently, I’ve asked myself “what the heck do you want to do?” I then badgered myself with doing everything I could. Wasted my time doing fun things without real thought or purpose. I’ve been doing all I can do, but not all I want to do.

I decided to meditate on this. Somewhere between the blank space and India Arie’s Strength, Courage, and Wisdom I heard my artistic consultant (one of my favorite people) Dasan Ahanu shouting “WRITE THE DAMN BOOK!” (lol). Even after hearing this I thought…hmm…but my first book sucks! After meditating I logged into twitter and BAM! Like the food channel! Two tweets of confirmation, one from someone saying that their sister just finished reading my book, and a second one from one of my favorite fans saying that she was listening to my CD. It hit me. Give up?Β “THAT’s NOT IN THE SCRIPT!” I got it…..I will write the damn book….write about now!

Yesterday is a memory, tomorrow is a part of your imagination…in this life all you have is now. Do something with it!
