    Hi all, again next day, again new practice to do. Again the same struggle with time. But somehow it must be done. It must be delivered to be a bit better or to understand more or simply to discover to what is missing in our journey. 'Tikoo Tuba', you mentioned piano teacher I was considering. I am still with no teacher, though I am working hard to make time available to spend with her a bit of time each week. You see I have my priorities. I work on something that will create more time for me and my piano, teacher included, to help me with what my app is giving me already. Problem, no it is not a problem, it is decision I made, I am putting whole my attention to create more time so I don't have to worry about it later and simply have it. Changing your income source is not sometimes that easy, it is time consuming. Would be great to have it all straight away, but in this case work has to be done! Loads of work. In between I need to keep going with my piano journey. I am focusing on what I have and how to use it as best as possible right now, to make future better and more comfortable later. There are some struggles, I have my obstacles, it all takes time and hours of work. But bit by bit I am closer to what I want to have. Like with the piano practice, one day at the time, one step closer every day, each hour working on my project and piano as well pushes me closer to my goal. I am enjoying my journey though it might not be the perfect road I could imagine. I am happy and take as much fun from what I have and I fight for more. Back to task of a day: PIANO PRACTICE! Play today again! Have fun! Learn something new! Enjoy! Be great! Take care and have a great day!

    Journey continues... I hope it is same for you. Step by step we move forward. Further we are more we see in our horizon to learn. How great is that? Few months back there were only less then one minute pieces on my program to learn, and it was a lot. Now there are longer and longer pieces to master, and I am happy that I can. But at the same time we need to keep in mind that we actually can't stop. There are days when best would be to rest, put everything aside. Relax. Watch maybe some TV, but then at least in my mind there is this voice telling me that if I don't do it what it should be done today, I for sure will have to do it tomorrow. And next stop on the journey will be postponed. No, I don't like that. I want to reach another station today if possible. Action! Learning! Practising! Spending time with my piano and for you with your instrument of choice will bring us closer to next step, next challenge, next achievement another level of mastery. Luckily for us playing music brings loads of joy. Sometimes it is of course frustrating while we learn new skills but it is totally worth it, because once we have that skill we can do much more then before. Quite obvious statement, right? But at the same time once we know more we more likely to see and understand how much more it is there to master. It is like never ending story. But it is worth it. On the way there is so much fun and pride from even small accomplishments. We can't afford to miss that, we need to make that happen as often as possible. That is why we need to play and practice. Let's do it again today. Let's find those minutes when we can play and enjoy our progress. Let's forget about everything around us and sink into those sounds we create. Not perfect yet? Of course, at least in my case. But what is perfect? Maybe fact that we are doing it is perfect. So, let's be perfect today. Play, have fun, learn something new. That sound like perfect plan for today. Now is time to act towards what has been planed and be again even smallest step ahead then yesterday. PLAY! I will. Take care. Have a great day.

    Your a life coach , eh ? Exuse me , I'd like to hear more about your human teacher when that day of the week comes around . Yes , I am following your posts ... perhaps to see how your daily practice at writing is coming along . Writing about music is itself a passion .

    Day when I have a teacher did not come yet. When it comes for sure I will share it with you 'Tikoo Tuba' and everybody who reads that. No doubt about this. Yes, I help people going into direction of their goals. Stay on their course. Following their dreams. Do I know everything. Hell no. I rather keep then doing what is their life choice, to do what makes them happy. Changing your life and doing what you really want it is not always as easy as it many times sounds. It sounds so simple, right? But there is more to it. Doing your old work yet and shifting into different direction requires many times a lot of effort. Not everybody finds it easy. I believe it is worth it. It requires a lot of changes. Way you see the life. What is important. Not for me, but for person that is subject here. Many times we need a support, somebody who listen, who understand, who will discuss challenges with you. Somebody who will be by your side in difficult times to keep going. Even it is an hour a day going into direction of your dreams. Repeating action. Slowly at the beginning. One step at the time. Fighting what we were thought that doesn't suit your recent life choice. Changing those habits that you don't want in your life anymore. That is a big challenge, not only for me but for many as well. I am not saying I am miracle maker. You are the one who makes them happen. One simple change by one simple change at the time until you have what you want. And then again once you are there there are new challenges again, those we never imagined will be there. There are situations when you reach them and nobody is there for you. Nobody who will understand or simply be there for you to keep you going. Happy that you are on your course. Into life you always wanted to have. I am not miracle maker, or maybe I am sometimes. I am happy when people do what they love. Whatever it is. You see people blossom with small achievements. You see this spark in their eyes, this happiness. That is beautiful. I have it when I play piano. So, I don't like so much expression 'life coach' because I can't teach you life. Who can? I am more like a guard that once you step on your chosen path I guard and help you stay on the course. Like here, I am on my course with my piano journey, I have a lot of obstacles I don't even mention here too long story. But I am keep going. Fighting all what comes along bit by bit. Life challenges us so much sometimes, but we need to laugh back and do what we can. And we can a lot. We never know unless we start fighting back. So, if there is anything you need to fight back, do it today. Solve just one bit of the problem. Do something and of course play piano or your instrument of choice today. You and I will do it again today, right? To be another step closer to what we want! Playing music. Practice. Don't forget about fun part. We are in this together. I truly hope you do much better job with your music then me! Let's shine today Take care.

    Things go wrong sometimes even we try our best to make things happen the way we like. It happened to me yesterday. Though, I have everything planned, life surprises us with new challenges. I had one yesterday and had to put my attention to it all the way. It had to be done yesterday, but that meant for me cut my piano time to the minimum. I played a bit of course. Not enough though. I am not going to cry about it. I got the lesson. Now, a bit smarter I hope will plan better my actions and avoid again situation when I have to miss what gives me so much fun. So, today, though my new challenge needs still a bit of attention I will not miss my piano time. Like mentioned, a bit smarter then yesterday will work on what just came to work on but practice must continue. Over some time my problem will be solved. Proper action is planed. Will see how it works. But most important is that piano practice will not be missed. So, back on track. Piano session today, again for me and you. Or your instrument of choice. We will have a lot of fun playing. Right? I guess we do. Even there is something new to learn. We know already that this will work great for us. Move us forward again to play even more advanced pieces of music. Play music we like to play. Once we do, there is even more fun. We don't want to miss that. So, let's arm ourselves in patience, perseverance and do it what needs to be done. Practice. Practice. Practice. Let's enjoy as much as possible today's session. I will. I hope you will too. I wish you all great day! Take care.
