I'm at my Uncle and Aunt's house right now in Saskatoon Saskatchewan (yes, it's a real place!). Jason is down stairs playing hide and seek with my cousin's little kids. They are squeeling and laughing and trying not to be loud, to no avail. So cute. We sound check in a few hours and then hit the stage. I am nervous about tonight. It takes courage to be on the road.
This tour has been BUSY so far. Here is what I have been doing: Lots of press (which I love doing. It's awesome to meet hard working press people who take the time to care about what I'm doing), visiting friends and family pretty much everywhere we go, sound checks, shows, meet and greets after the shows, emails, flights, etc. I haven't even cracked open my new book yet which is weird for me. I literally fall into bed each night and imediately go straight to sleep. It's a good tired. A rewarding tired.
And I'm wondering. Do you ever wonder if you're doing what you were meant to do? I mean, all of us have so many options in life and so often a lot of those options are all good. How do you chose?
I have to believe that this is what I'm meant to be doing right now. Things keep working out for me. It's a struggle too, don't get me wrong. For all the successes there are failures too. But I guess so long as this road keeps rolling out in front of me I'm going to keep walking down it. I might wish I could jog every now and then and just skip over some spots. Or stop for a moment when things are going really well. There are times I go up hill and times I go down hill. Sometimes the wind is at my back, other times it's in my face. But I just have to keep going.
I hope to see you somewhere along the way.
