What's Up With J...
Anybody else out there feel like the days and weeks are running together? Time seems to have a choke hold on me this week. I've been dealing with some stressful stuff for the past month or so and trying to stay afloat. It's not always easy to find gratitude in stressful situations. Sometimes the truth is hard to find. I have faith that I'll be able to find a way through the muck though. Things I know: I love being able to create music and share it with all of you, I love being able to help build and grow a gaming business with my brother, I love all the positive people I share these experiences with, I have the bestest friend in the world, I have the most amazing son in the universe, and all of you that read these every week....I love you very much.
What's Up With Kyle...
Thanks to everybody that reached out to me last week! I took your advice and "Got Well Soon!" Last week, I injured my back working on a project that required hand mixing about 6,160 lbs of concrete resulting in a herniated disc in my L4 vertebrae. If you've had an injury like that you know what it's like. It's enough pain to get philosophical.I've since been to the doctor and as I'm writing this getting ready for a therapy massage but it looks like I made it out with any significant or long term damage.
Personally, when I get sick or injured I struggle with self worth. I feel useless and disappointing. I think the reason a lot of us feel that way is because by nature we're supposed to create things. When we're debilitated, we robbed of that opportunity. It's an empty, bitter and depressing feeling to accompany your pain.
The day it happened, pretty much the only thing that felt good was lying on the floor of my living room (a scene I remember my Dad creating when he had a similar injury). The dog came over and licked my face and lied down next me. As I lied there, I asked myself "How can I create something when all I can do is lie on the floor?"
I looked up at the under-workings of a coffee table I'd restored a few years before, I noticed a measuring tape, an old envelope from the utility bill and a carpenter pencil just within reach. So i took the opportunity, already being perfectly positioned, to get the dimensions and hidden pieces I never think about when I look at the top side of our coffee table and feel useful.
I love this coffee table. If something ever happened to it, I'd want to build one just like it. If it wasn't for this injury, I might have been lost in that unlikely event. There are a lot of philosophies and religions that say something similar to this but this is how I say it so it's real for me: "When things are tough, The Desire to Create is there for you." A little time and therapy are most likely the main reasons I'm pretty much healed up but nothing dulled the pain like laying on my back, figuring out how to remake that table I've come to be so fond of.
I hope when things are tough you remember The Desire to Create is there for you (even if it's just creating a peaceful moment with your dog).
