I feel like trying something new. There’s a bunch of new apps that I’ve been meaning to try out for updating the blog and being consistent but with mine and my partner’s birthdays falling within three weeks of each other, work, writing and making beats, I haven’t really got around to doing much. *Excuses cough cough*
During this month I have gotten super duper organised. I attempted to create new iCloud calendars for blogging which never really got anywhere but still I created them. One was labeled editorials for all things writeup and the other was for releasing music. Releasing music you say??? Why yes, I spontaneously uploaded Casuals and Pump It Up sometime in early September to test out the workings of PPL form filling and Distro Kid, the distributor I use. There was no marketing during the process apart from maybe subtle hints on the blog and the artist name was attributed to my old trusty alias Where Is KO?. Reason being is that like I said I really would like to get familiar with the process as I prepare to spread my wings once again in the field of music.
As above, so below.
What many of you may have noticed is that I’ve been quite active on Soundcloud. At first I wasn’t really publicising what I was doing but soon relaised that I had a project in the works, which brings me back to the title of this post, Mercury Retrograde. Whilst wondering how on earth I was so organised and determined at the start of this month I stumbled upon an instagram post which went into quite alot of detail about the way in which Mercury going into Retrograde affects you. I’m not usually a big believer or follower in much astrology on that sort of level to believe it as gospel but I respect it enough to take heed as there was a striking resemblance in my change of behaviour. There were the organisational ups and creative spontaneity but there were also the lows where I began wondering what my purpose on this earth was until I figured that the lack of job prospects or openings to apply for weren’t the thing that was getting me down, but the fact that I was not using the force; my special power that only I have to enrich the lives of others far and wide.
Maybe the fact that whenever I attempt to change my vocation and try to look for something else I get bored at the application stage, or the fact that it doesn’t pay enough is because the universe has much bigger plans for me. A friend and professonal lifestyle engineer, Daz Baldwin and I had an adhoc conversation where he posed the question…
The key to unlimited riches and an eternity of happiness is to pursue the path of doing whatever it is you would do if money was no object. What would you be doing if money was not in the equation, what makes you so happy that you’d it for free for the rest of your existence?
Sometimes in life we get caught up worrying about the future rather than basking in all things present. I had a conversation with my partner about death [quite morbid I know] and expressed that I don’t fear it in the slightest because nothing is guarenteed. As a youngster I spent so much time worrying about perception, perfection, and procrastination that I never completed anything, enjoyed many experiences, became complacent with never being satisfied but now i’m slowly developing the audacity to share things with the world. We all have gifts, we all have dreams, we all have imaginations so let’s make the world a better place by sharing these things with eachother.
I really don’t know what the direction is behind this post but I guest I really wanted to express what was going on inside my head, test out a new blogging app on my mac, and genuinely share some words of wisdom to anyone lacking confidence to be themselves, which sometimes could be the person you’ve always wanted to be but you’ve just been afraid to use the force within
