It's The Remix!
Had an epiphany the other day, y’all!
Hoping to get back in the studio (probably towards the summer) and work on some new material. But in the meantime, some of the producers I’ve worked with over the years have been selecting some of our former releases for a remix refresh. It’s always cool for me to hear how producers reconstruct a song to give it a completely different feel and sound. And that energy is precisely what I need in my life right now.
I realized the other day that as I approach the 6-month mark in leaving my former job in talk radio, there are some goals I’d set for my “what next” that just haven’t flourished in the way I’d envisioned. Much of it was completely out of my control, but that doesn't invalidate the reason why these ideas were identified as goals in the first place. What I’ve come to understand is that I need to apply the remix principle to some of these personal and professional areas as well. The bones of the plan are strong, but the path to achieving it requires a refresh and update.
I am more talented and resourceful than I often give myself credit for. And it shouldn’t require that a small problem escalate to a major one before I reconfigure my approach to resolving the matter. Hell, I’m a VibeMistress. I love playing remixes for my listeners and encouraging to acknowledge the brilliance of the producers who create a completely new vibe for a song that we think we know well. Time to get that energy to work in my life much more effectively.
And with Mercury no longer doing its retrograde foolishness until early July, this is a great time to take this reflective revelation and put it into practice.
In the words of the late Dick Clark, “It’s got a great beat and you can dance to it!” Dance, I shall. And WIN.
