Up and down?
Never let up! Never let down! We should always strive to move forward with our lives. It's risky to get complacent and to get into a rhythm where we stop improving, stop learning, stop questioning. As a composer, I need to make sure to write music every day. As a drummer, I need to make sure to sit at the kit and play every day. As a thinker, I need to make sure to read and write or blog every day. I am currently the best version of myself that I've ever been. And I'm only improving more and more every day. I have to remember of the importance of continuing to challenge myself and to be open to choosing joy whenever I can get there.
