I wanted to write about the art of letting go. A wise owl once told me there is a huge difference between letting go and giving up.I have been doing alot of letting go since my last blog. Knowing when to let go is hard but generally I go by this rule…..
: when the energy and effort you expend doing something exceeds the return and no one really notices but you..well,maybe its time to let go.
I certainly realized this myself running a label.There really is no need to do a blog every month, a podcast, a weekly streaming show- all the things that take so much time,however I do it now when I feel like it and to be truthful,I am less stressed and that means happier….The main thing is to do this because you want to,but we all gotta eat so realizing that time is a precious commodity is a necessity because this is your life we are talking about,so spend it making YOU happy as well as others.YOU CAN’T MAKE EVERYONE HAPPY.
Another frustrating issue you may have to deal with is the fact that you may spend many months building artistes,lending them money so they could work without worry ,investing your time and money into them-only to have them shit all over you and become paranoid ego maniacs.I definitely advise letting go of that negativity and concentrating on those who are blessed with some humility and not a sense of entitlement, though to be honest its hard when you see how great it could all be if only they would pull their head out their ass.
Letting go means going easy on yourself sometimes,trust the universe to unfold and take you in its arms,so I use a spa day with my girls to overcome crap like this,do whatever it take for you to change your focus.Things don’t always go our way and seeing tragedies like Japan certainly help put things in focus don’t you think?
I loathe to let go because it always felt like you are giving up on someone/something though I have oddly enough always been able to do this in relationships because I knew it was not right for me long term,business is so much harder because we often have to work with people we do not care for and that can be a pain in the ass and it’s not practical to be surrounded by fairies and unicorns-if only!
