As some of you know, the last couple of months — in fact, the last six months — have been filled with many challenges and occasionally some intense sorrow in my life. It is so easy to get caught up in why is this happening? or can I just crawl in a hole? But then I remember that everything that happens, even the most difficult, heart wrenching things, are all part of this amazing life we live, and that embracing and learning from all of it — using it to become a better, stronger person, a better artist, a more loving partner, a more grateful friend, and ultimately, a happier person, is what matters most. I’ve written about this topic before, but it’s worth repeating over and over.
One thing I have understood recently (as if for the first time) is that the people in my life (even so many of you who I have never met) are pretty amazing. You are filled so much generosity and love. And for that I am so thankful.
Happy Thanksgiving, friends.
