The dark side of getting visible is the haters. The opinionated, unsolicited advice, wrapped in criticism. They will always have something to say about the face you’re making, how you sound weird on film, how you don’t look like that in real life, you look a little chubby on camera, it goes on and on. It might even surprise you who comes out of the woodwork to try and tear you down. Don’t let this faze you. This is just part of it. Part of having the courage to put yourself out there, and share your message with the world. The thing about haters that you need to know, is their opinion, and less than kind behavior, has nothing to do with you. When someones thoughts are distorted by fear, despair, and jealousy, nerves become overwrought. In that state, they can not think clearly, let alone make wise decisions, hence, throwing daggers your way in the form of verbal attacks. This reveals who they are, not who you are. It is an invitation bubbling to the surface for them to accept, if they choose to. An invitation from their soul to do a little inner work, and heal that part of themselves.

Hey y’all I recently did a 7 day journey in to my new album Keeper of Bees on Periscope. I spoke about the inspiration behind each song on the album, and I wanted to invite you over there to experience it, if you haven’t yet. If you are not familiar with Periscope, think Instagram only instead of pictures, it’s live video. All you have to do is download the app on your phone, and you can experience live music from your living room! Just click here so you can join the fun!
Louise Hay is about to turn 90. She did not grow up with a silver spoon in her mouth, not by any means. However, she was willing to take responsibility for the circumstances that were not working in her life, and shift them into the life that she desired. She was willing to do the work. Then pay it forward in the most beautiful way over the years. For everyone that has ever thought “I’m too old” she is great evidence that is hogwash, and simply a shitty belief you are fiercely holding onto. Each new decade Louise stamps by saying “This will be the best of my life” I’m with her.
