Being You

My thoughts on sharing your art - your music - yourself.

 

First off - embrace this: Your self-worth is FIXED. It cannot be changed by others.

You will NOT become "better" in those nervous moments before a show. In fact...that's why most of us get nervous to begin with. We try to be more than we are and we fear that we won't be good enough.

"Nothing has transformed my life more than realizing that it's a waste of time to evaluate my worthiness by weighing the reaction of the people in the stands." - Brene Brown

 

If you are centered in yourself and simply allow the listener into your world rather than trying to sell them a version of you that you only imagine they will accept as "good"...then you're cheating yourself and the audience out of a truly emotionally moving and authentic experience. ...just be you...you're more than enough.
