It's never just another show, stage, or song for me. Wherever I am, Im intentional about showing up, present to the moments I meet, meeting more of myself, minute by minute. Two weeks ago , as I warmed up and prepared for our Friday residency - I always trust that whoever is meant to experience me on stage, or in the uber ride down, or out in the sidewalk, will.
Back to -100617- breaking the stage down and heading to meet the band for grub and a gentleman walks up and signals my attention, to which we engage. Super kind with remarks - and pulled out his wallet, which was empty. His truth and words were enough, beyond my words of gratitude. But nonetheless- he reached in his pocket and pulled out a new $100 bill and handed it to me.
This moment mirrored for me the authentic connection I live by, as it comes, without strings. Thank you to this family, their presence THAT night, mirrored the abundance I get to experience as an artist, but most importantly how real and rich my life truly is. ⚡️🚀⚡️🚀 #sovereignteen#yearofSS#artistlife#everythingiseverything#IHaveADreamICameToSing
🚨 *Country Alert* ... Playing Rosie like a Telecaster, borrowing some licks from my favorite “Tele Master” @thedanieldonato ... and seeing if you can make every note sound like the right note.
When you’re all set to head to the gym- but then you see that guitar all alone, just chilling in the sun, so stop & say hello... maybe I’ll go later today.... been a while since I’ve posted something. Hello InstaFriends! (sounds like a board game from the 80’s) *random thoughts of the day
P.S.- should be getting my real tele back soon!! It’s gonna be awesome!! @anthony_valenti •

the world's upside down. and we are one with her. 🌫🌫🌫 #whatsgoinon#water#heal#motherocean#connection#everythingiseverything#newmoon#intention ::::::
"This new moon is demanding that we understand what we need in this moment in order to come back into balance. It is encouraging us to re-invent the ways in which we do relationship, reminding us of how desperately we need each other. It is reminding us that within this incredibly broken system, it is literally impossible not to cause harm at some point. We are not separate from the world’s problems. Or its perfection." - @chaninicholas
Have you ever experienced, done, thought or felt anything outside the Now? Nothing ever happened in the past: it happened in the Now. Nothing will ever happen in the future; it will happen in the Now.
What you think of as the past is a memory trace, stored in the mind, of a former Now. When you remember the past, you reactivate a memory trace - and you do so now. The future is an imagined Now, a projection of the mind. When the future comes, it comes as the Now. Past and future obviously have no reality of their own. Their reality is "borrowed" from the Now.

m o t i v a t i o n // m o n d a y 🗝🗝🗝 When you take your hand + clutch it your heart, and you feel that heart beat... just remember, that no one but you + God, know what that's been through (truly,) what it's survived, and all of the dreams, desires + passions, that are all awaiting, to come alive on that heart. It is a rewarding challenge, but give yourself permission to let others down, before letting yourself down. That takes everyone out of the equation of making YOUR life, their business. In this moment - I believe it is the only way we'll experience a congruent oneness in the world.
You're going to die. Why be afraid to live? (From the inside/out) ⚡️⚡️ ____________________________________________________
Part deuce in Coach Rob's (@preparetoperform) series on readiness ・・・
The second category we look to in regards to ready state or adaptability is motor function or neuromuscular control. More broadly, skill.
Coming from an orthopedic therapy and movement coaching perspective this was for a long time my primary indicator an athlete was "off". We've all had days or even weeks where stress inhibited full access to our skill set(s). Weights, speeds, and movements that might normally feel smooth and easy are lacking in their coordination, timing, and even range of motion. This may even show itself as proprioceptive and soft tissue pain (nociceptive) issues.
At the seminar we've great suggestions from our attendees: J-Curl Test ( @strengthratio via @dsyeager7 ), tap tests, vertical leap and more. These are all good answers and viable metrics in there own right. While some of these are highly multifactorial and require regular resetting of baseline measurements they can nonetheless be valid forms of testing NM function. ••
In our view developing a relationship with a coach or teacher who has eyes on you on a regular basis is the way to hold here. Someone who is familiar with your movement idiosyncrasies and signatures and can help to make real time decisions to ensure optimal training outcomes.
Whatever metric you use be sure that it's a consistent one and that it's applied in the context of triangulation
