It is Friday and I am resonating between playing music and playing volleyball.
Volleyball doesn’t really have a future or potential anymore after playing for so many years, but music could open some new doors and give me some exciting opportunities.
I am waiting to hear from my silent bandmate about if we will play tonight. I call him the silent bandmate because his communication skills are horrible. He is a great guitar player but keeps all his thoughts inside due to fear or something, and it is starting to erode our band from the seams. We have some local businesses where we could do gigs, but he is so bad at communicating that we are losing the gigs as fast as they come in. He can go back to cleaning furnace filters for a living and drop the music pursuit, but I know he would not be happy just being an HVAC tech for the rest of his life. Some doors open for us and if we are too scared to walk through them then they will close and never open again. Heating and cooling systems are okay to work on, but if you have a talent other than that of an HVAC worker then you need to pursue it or you will live a life of regret for the rest of your days. I am 55 years old now and I can’t spend my time afraid of taking the next step that can bring me success. I will keep doing my work for the cooling corp but my sights are set on being a musician.
