I always find the hardest part of anything you want to accomplish in life is just starting it. I just started back running again yesterday after a long break during the Christmas holidays. I love running as it not only keeps me fit but it also clears my head and I feel fresh and really motivated after a long run.
Im standing on the side of the stage ready to go on and play a song. I listened to the person speak before It was my turn. I taught to myself that looks easy. Ya I'll be just fine and I felt relaxed and not at all nervous. I was introduced by the MC and it was my turn to walk on stage and congratulate all the partcipants of this years
My very first concert I when to see was that of an Irish legend singer/songwriter by the name of Christie Hennessy. I was around 10 or 11 years old at the time and music was my only escape from the reality which surrounded me. I was introduced to Christie's music while growing up in "St Oliver's" which was a state run residential care home located in Limerick city, or as my friends at the time would call it "The Orphanage"
Attitude is everything! So what does this exactly mean. Well personally it means it's the one thing that we as humans have complete control over. A good friend of mine gave me this piece of laminated card a few years back and I have it stuck to the back of my door and I often read it before I leave the house. It reads....
These are the moments that I say to myself this is it, this is what its all about, connecting with people through music is a such a powerful force and its these wonderful experiences which motivates me to become the best musician I possibly can. I look forward to meeting you all wherever that may be
