the importance of being earnest
ask anyone who knows me, I am a very earnest girl... if I'm on your team, boy! am I a great champion for you and everything hope to achieve!
I don't really know where this conviction came from, this 'why not' attitude that has seen me through many adventures, but I have come to realise today that it is the secret of any success I've had in this life... and by success I mean in the task of being a great human being! cos even though I struggle to make the rent and feel sometimes forlorn that I don't have all the trappings of modern life, being a greathuman being is all I am interested in... the amazing friends and family I have, the music I'm making, the life I'm enjoying, goddamn I feel blessed!!!
it occurs to me that everyone you meet, cross paths with, fall in love with, fall out of love with, all leave you with something you didn't have before that helps you join the next dot in life... I have written some kickass songs about heartbreak and without that experience would I still have any songs? hard to gauge but other examples abound...
an ex love of mine helped a friend of mine publish his book, still reeling from that sweet story!
a really old friend of mine came to see me play last night for the first time, he probably doesn't realise it but his encouragement of me over the last 18 months has been priceless!
also at that same gig a guy who picked me up in his taxi couple of times lately turned up to listen to my songs, he is a lapsed teacher and I'm putting him in touch with someone who can probs give him some work, all this just because we were chatting in his cab... ! <3 it="" nbsp="" p="">
but what is also key, everyone who is leaving me with a little something, is getting a little bit of earnest from me! think about what kind of dog you'd be... I'm a Jack Russell! haha energetic, excitable and supercute! ;) haha
the universe delivers everything we ask for, so make sure you're asking for the right things! and if you see me in the street say hi because you never know how we can make each other's life better or at least more interesting!!!
