JJ's Year Of Destiny- Day 40-Wrote a Song About It, Wanna Hear It...Here it Go!

Scared? Do it anyway... -jj thames.  
Pricilla Shirer once said that whenever fear surrounds something...typically that is the very thing that you need to explore doing. Fear will keep you from your destiny. God doesn't use fear to guide us.

okay...so...
I have been scratching my head on how to begin my record.
as you know...I write/sing my truth.
I have to be in the makeup chair in 3 hours, to prepare for my photoshoot for my upcoming record, Raw Sugar. But, I can't sleep.
My show was amazing last night...I had an high off of it for a while...slappin myself up fives...but, I felt this niggling in my soul...An tinglng of my writers spidey sense, I knew what was coming. A "heart" song. I tried to ignore it.

But, I haven't been able to dismiss this cadence in my head.
I have tried and tried to move it out of my brain...
like a 2 year old kicking and screaming...laying on the floor in the supermarket... "I don't wanna..."

Today...
is a bad frikkin day...

JJ'S YEAR OF DESTINY- DAY 28- Girl, You Be Illin'

Just when you think you've got it all figured out...something else changes... If you've learned all there is to ever learn about life and all of its facets...it is time to die. So just live and let yourself live...give yourself a break...stop beating yourself up when you're less than perfect. Get over yourself, and your finite view of who you are, and should be...take a deep breath...embrace your tiny, frail, imperfect humanity...stand in awe of your big perfect God...bask in the joy of merely being alive. He has a plan for your life that's gonna blow. your. mind. If you'll just get outta the way.  -jj thames.
