Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Novembre 2011

In my book there’s nothing better for a persons development then having to perform under pressure. The bigger the audience, the higher the stakes, the more to lose, the better. There’s something about those situations that requires you to simply man up and perform. It begs you to destroy your comfort zone, fail and constantly push yourself to get better at whatever it is you do. It also requires you to be out there all the time, in the mix, on hypothetical stage performing, trying new things and pushing it.

It doesn’t matter if your giving a power point presentation or at a bar making a move on a girl that caught your eye, it’s all the same. My friend D put me on to a Eleanor Roosevelt quote that has had a major impact on me lately – “Do one thing every day that scares you.” I love that and in my journey toward complete fearlessness I couldn’t agree more. Go out there, if it makes you uncomfortable do it just to feel that and conquer it, that exercise alone is worth gold. On the same token, there are many of us who want to be out there so much that we neglect the equally important self reflection aspect of things…

Do you need sometime on your own?
Do you need sometime all alone?
Everybody needs sometime on their own,
Don’t you know you need sometime all alone…? – Guns & Roses (November Rain)
Coming from an 80’s Rock star, the epitome of being in the mix 24/7 and meeting expectations, I’d say Axell was in the zone when he wrote that. Absence makes the heart grow fond of anything but it also gives you time to reflect and understand things on your own, without influence and that’s where the true answers lie. So you might be asking what does all of this have to do with LMDM? Well, one of the few times I get to fall back on my own are when I make these tapes and Stephs musical selections always have a way of getting these thoughts going. I’ve got another 3 or 4 hours before I’m in another wonderfully uncomfortable situation but right now I’m just going to kick it with LMDM and indulge in the ease of temporary solitude, enjoy.
