A positive post because sometimes we need that.
I overheard two young musicians speaking recently about what they would do after graduation. One of them was overcome with worry about how she was going to pay rent.
“I have a few gigs lined up, but I don’t think it’s going to get me very far. I might have to take this job I was offered,” Jenn says.
Her friend Sarah asked, “What kind of job?”
“Admin and telemarketing,” Jenn sighed.
“When are you going to be able to practice?” Sarah asks.
“I don’t know,” Jenn says. “I guess at night if I don’t have gigs. I’m afraid people are going to judge me and think I’ve failed. A month out of music school and I’m already giving up. No one’s going to think I’m a serious musician.”
STOP! REWIND. What if the conversation could go like this instead?
Jenn: I’m thinking of getting a non-music related job.
Sarah: What kind of job?
