Updated: Feb 1

Contemplating how to look forward.


The new year is always a time of reflection for me. Contemplating my journey back and how to look forward. I know that I have reached the point where I, first, believed that I would be back to myself. It is a really good feeling that when I laid in a hospital bed at my lowest point in my life I was dreaming of where I am now.


To Move Forward.


So, to move forward from here, what will the future hold. University finishes in May and I intend to use the time I have left to achieve as much as I possibly can. There is the question of going on to do a Masters Degree but I think I am ready to build the business and create opportunities for myself and those around me.


Songwriting - New Goals

Firstly, I want to play more with other people. The last few months have been very focused on songwriting and I will always keep writing songs. I have missed playing with other people, especially good musicians. They test me and push me to be better than I am. They make me uncomfortable and that is a place of growth. They will bring ideas and view points to my songs that I can never imagine. In total, I will continue to move forward as a musician and as a person.


Giving Back


One of the songs that I have recorded is going to be the sound track for a short video on suicide. It is an honest song about the struggles I and many men have had. I have come out the other side but many have not and that pains me. If my creativity can help one man to come out the other end then I have achieved something significant. I will present the song here in a couple of weeks when I have done the final mix and master.


Enjoying Life


Most of all, just the fact that I am looking forward, enjoying my life and enjoying my music is a testament to the journey back. This is the last post about my journey back but is also the first post about my journey forward.
