I finished up with my Elfing . It has been a lot of fun spreading good cheer this year! I think I did more of this than I ever have. I feel like I could make a career out of being a goodwill ambassador.
My personal Christmas list of wants is small… Mostly of things you can’t put under the tree. I worked hard this year on my music. I really had hoped to get somewhere with it. I wrote three song
s… I actually became a songwriter this year.
I worked really hard on arranging. Trying to put my sound into the covers that I play. I worked hard on trying to learn and understand social media. That in itself has been as time consuming as learning new material lol. It has been a busy year with all of this. I tried to find places to post all of these creations.
As I said, what I want can’t be found under a Christmas tree. I want to be found by someone in the music industry that finds me interesting. I want to make money with this… ” Let me do it ” ! I’m always asking the universe to use me. I want to be a brand, a spokesperson for my generation! Let me do it! Find a place for me! I want so much to be able to get to the next level, whatever that is lol…
Mostly, it has been frustrating… What I have found to be the hardest is the deafning silence. It screams louder than words at times… I have been increasing my YouTube views and my SoundCloud Stats by a lot. Very little feedback comes back. Lots of views, little feedback.
I had also hoped that I would get a positive response back from Roger Hodgson. He is one of the original Supertramp songwriters. I cover a few of the songs that he has written. I desperately wanted to be able to post my covers of his on my YouTube channel. They are incredibly complex songs that I have a real heart for. I have asked him a few times for permission to do so. I have heard nothing back…
Don’t Leave Me Now
These are a few of Roger Hodgson’s greatest songs. I would dearly love to have his permission to cover them. I have written to him twice about this…
As you can see, the things that are on my wish list aren’t products you can buy. They are just personal accomplishments that I strive for. Although a new video camera to record better quality music videos would be on my list lol. My iPad just doesn’t quite cut it for recording…
Here’s hoping that those things that you desire, (the things that Santa can’t bring), find you! May you acquire and commandeer these things on your personal wish list! No matter how big or how small, never give up the dream!
I leave you with this affirmation that I wrote to myself earlier in the year.
Whatever I create and touch, there I will prosper monetarily. Whatever touches me, I will make better!
Have a great Christmas all!
