Ready for the NO

Emotions are running high at the Carter homestead today.

𝕡𝕖𝕒𝕔𝕖, 𝕕𝕚𝕤𝕒𝕡𝕡𝕠𝕚𝕟𝕥𝕞𝕖𝕟𝕥, 𝕗𝕚𝕣𝕖

First of all, thank you for your prayers and good vibes. I felt them all. I am recovering remarkably well and am grateful to have surgery behind me. This brings me peace.

While I was quietly slipping into my anesthesia induced sleep a package was being sent back to me as “undeliverable”. You see, I sent my favorite author a copy of More Than A Country Song and I was imagining her opening it, reading it and sending me a handwritten letter telling me how much she loved it.

But it came back to me yesterday, all beat up and torn. This brings me disappointment and practicality. Silly know it’s not that quick and easy. You are a musician after’ve trained for “NO”

I know what I need to do now. I talk about this all of the time. I need to keep.going. I need to use this as fuel. I need to welcome the roadblocks so that I can celebrate the comebacks. This brings me fire 🔥

I’m ready for the failure so that I can get to the victory... because have to walk through the tall weeds to get to the ocean.
