|Everything's Going to be Alright - a true story|
Everything's Going to Be Alright
Changing my mind changes my experience
Before I moved to New York City a friend had offered a mantra to me of “Everything’s going to be alright” and I would occasionally repeat it when I was feeling anxious.
Several years later when I was studying with Hilda Charlton I had the opportunity to play a gig with a very fine bass player in Connecticut. I was worried about the gig in two ways. 1. The last time I had played with him he had been expressing very negative feelings and I was afraid being with him would pull me into a negative state; and 2. I was worried that I wouldn’t play well enough to be asked to play in the future.
As I got into the car I realized I was in a bad state and needed to lift myself out of it. I started saying over and over to myself: “Everything’s going to be alright.” Fortunately it was a two hour drive to the club and eventually the anxiety began to lessen.
Just as I drove into the parking lot of the restaurant I thought to turn on the radio. “Let it Be” was playing and I allowed the song to bring me into total relaxation, happiness and bliss as I realized that the Universe “had my back.” The gig was a dream! We played great together, had fun, and I drove home happy.
Thank you for your support of this music!
I wish you
Much Love and Many Blessings,
