" I am a passenger
And I ride and I ride
I ride through the city's backside
I see the stars come out of the sky
Yeah, they're bright in a hollow sky
You know it looks so good tonight"
The Passenger - Iggy Pop
When I drum, I actually am my worst critic . I tend to pick apart the mistakes... and the improper technique ... and the things I need to work on- essentially, my failures and weaknesses . So when people say unkind things to me, I have a tendency to truly believe them and take it to heart. But you know what I've had to learn ? I've had to learn to remind myself of truth. The truth that I am not any less loved because of my weight or drumming skill. And I am not any more valuable because a post has gotten a hundred "LIKES" and "comments". I am valuable because Jesus Christ says so and He ultimately shows it to me through what He did on the cross. I believe that Christ so loved me that he did not die for me because I play the drums at a certain level, or because I've lost weight. He loves me UNCONDITIONAL of my works or talents or number on the scale. And so .. I'm learning to care less and less about what others think of me and more of what my Heavenly Father thinks. Thanks God for giving me the grace to breathe today, the grace to play some cool rhythms on the drums and the grace to pursue fitness. Here's a little Diddy I played today at a store ❤️ Enjoy :) #pushyoself#mistakesareok
