My writing made 2 big breakthroughs in a single day yesterday.
First, some lyrics I wrote really struck a chord with a dear friend. It was such a rewarding feeling. For the first time in a while, I didn’t want any credit for it. I just wanted the song to come to life.
Then, one of my favorite journalists texted me he wants us to work together. Again and again, actually looking to help when someone actually needs help always works. And also, I realized that couldn’t do what he does.
I liked both of those feelings in a different way. Both breakthrough moments came from honesty and vulnerability, by the way.
Real, painful honesty and vulnerability.
It felt strange but it didn’t feel wrong.
