Summer Heart – Please Stay

Ahh, nothings some chill wave on a Tuesday morning…

As usual I was studying Quincy Jones when I read a passage on his belief that true freedom ultimately exists in well defined structure. That statement runs deep but basically it means that life’s possibilities are infinite as is our creative nature. Our experience is so complex and fast that without some way to arrange and harness our potential we could spend our entire exploring and never really building.

It’s hard enough to find that balance and structure but I’ve found that sometimes it’s even harder to keep it. Have you ever looked back at a point in your life where you felt like everything was on point? Good things were happening left and right and the future was looking bright. Then something happened, the thrill was gone and you no longer had that energy on your side. For most, human nature says that when we’re down we have to work hard to get up so we put in all this work, focus really hard and we finally get up but then what happens? Well, there’s no such thing as staying still, everything in the world is in constant movement so if you stop working to maintain it then you’re inevitably going down. That applies to business, love, fitness, you name it. If you don’t work on it don’t have the nerve to wonder why it’s getting bad.

Summer Heart is about a guy who finds this moment of balance and interestingly enough ask the question…

Is there a way to make it stay?

The answer is yes, but it’s going to take work. Take note of the moment and hold on to whatever momentum got you there in the first place. If you lose it you’ll have to start all over again and that’s a cycle you can end up going through your entire life. Enjoy.
