Who Did You Want To Be?

I recently saw a bumper sticker that read, “Remember Who You Wanted To Be”. It’s crazy how profound bumper stickers can be in that small space, isn’t it?

It really made me think. Do you remember who you wanted to be? I’m not talking about when you were five and wanted to be an astronaut, Police Office, NASCAR racer or anything like that. I am talking about when you were in High School or College and you had dreams and aspirations which seemed to get lost as you went through life.

For me, it was to be in a touring band, playing music and ministering to people there. I played consistently from age 17 until I was 25 and my family moved to Oklahoma one year ago. It’s not that I don’t want to play anymore, it’s that I don’t know very many people out here in the “scene” and I’ve had a rough time connecting with other musician’s. I realize I am most likely not going to be touring very much any longer, but that doesn’t mean I can’t still attain what I once held so dear.

This year, I am going to strive to get back into the music scene. Live performance, studio sessions, recording other bands, mixing and even mastering projects. I am going to rehearse, by myself, in my home studio. I have been too complacent for too long with the gifts and talents the Lord has given me. It’s time, once again, to put it all to use.
