Lately, I’ve been worrying too much about what others think. 🌙 I’m not perfect. I’ve made mistakes. My main focus this year is to be happy; to live happily 🕊 My past has become my present strength, and that is what I want others to see of me. Have you been worrying about others and their perception of you? Take the time to reflect on those worries and figure out if all of that worrying is really worth the happiness you’re losing in the process. I love you, take care 🌙
Deep thoughts today: How do opera singers find new insights into signature roles? How do they keep the exploration (and voice!) evolving and sincere when so many productions/images/opinions have piled up over the seasons? • Today’s #wcw is a world-class Violetta – we’ve seen @cmwsoprano perform the role in 5 of the 10 Traviata productions she’s done in the past 6 seasons – and it’s fascinating to watch her portrayal shift and deepen over time, both from collaborating with different directors and drawing on life experience. • The most honest storytelling comes from that continual engagement: incredible artists don’t mimic other artists – or *themselves* – and their audiences appreciate that genuine approach!
In the end all the struggle and heartache is worth the moments of happiness and love. . . . Don’t let the fear of existence stop you from experiencing every aspect of life. Both good and bad. . . . You will lose it all but I believe it will be worth it
