    And again, nothing left to do but playing piano. Sadly nothing unexpected happened yesterday, but that is all right. That means only one thing to me... keep going and soon or later there will be some improvement. Practice hard to get your unexpected moment and expect that it will surprise you That is beauty of playing and keep going on the daily basis... those moments happen, more we practice more often they happen. So, let's play and have fun!

    Early start today for me with my piano and now with peace in mind and filled with music can deal with other issues and if some time will be left... guess what? Yes again piano time So, play today again, go a bit further and develop those skills and bring joy to your daily routines by having a bit of music played by you. Hard moments will occur but once we through practice go further there is always loads of joy and pride waiting for us and understanding that this is simply continuous process with one challenge after another that through practice will lead us to the moment where playing will become quite easy. I guess... because I am not there but step by step going there and I hope you too while enjoying every step of the process. So, practice today. Have fun and enjoy that we actually can

On days like this most important is to get back the momentum of keep going. So, like I mentioned a bit of work to do not related completely to piano practice but as a result piano practice will continue with enthusiasm we need to have and will to know more, be able to do more and as result to have a lot of fun and joy from the journey we took to play any instrument we chose and have those great moments when we actually play. So, I hope you are empowered today to play, practice and have fun and if not like me a bit just take a little of your time and simply rewire to be on track again. Works for me, maybe will as well for you. Have a great day, play, practice and have FUN!
    Yes, sometimes we have to hit the "reset" button and start getting motivated again. You are a trooper! I will check in periodically for motivation.

    Thanks for good words. Yes, we need to "reset" from time to time to refresh idea what we want and how to get there. Once our knowledge rises we may change a bit our approach to our goals. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't and then we can go back to what worked before. Anyway, practice and keep going always works So, let's do it again: PLAY, PRACTICE, HAVE FUN and be better then yesterday. If we repeat those simple steps and take action every day, there is no way we will stay in the same place for long. There will be progress even small one... but there will be progress! So, let's progress and PLAY

    Again I had chance to play on regular piano, and again have to say I NEED PIANO Though I am grateful to my keyboard serving me well on my journey, but sound coming from this piano I have chance to play is MUCH better. So, that is it for me today. I spend some time to play already... how about you? Ready to have some fun?

    Though my Sunday is usually for fun and enjoying what I am able to do with my piano... today it was different, I felt like practising today with my app PM. So, I did. Whatever is your plan today, or tonight just play again... continue your journey. Have fun and play, practice and develop those skills we are after with our instruments to play better then ever before Step by step to your goal! Practice, have fun and just enjoy the process, the journey

    There is one thing left to do today: just play! Practice will move us again a bit further. So, why wait and postpone when it gives us so much satisfaction of time well spent. Let's play... let's have fun. That is actually it. Once you play you will know what I am constantly talking about. So, PLAY, HAVE FUN you'll see

Are you ready to have some wonderful time with your instrument playing those notes you can play, practising those skills that need to be practised, having loads of fun on the way, experiencing some breakthrough moments? So, don't wait too long... it is worth it and further you are in your journey you will find more and more reasons why it is worth it... not to mention joy and fun you will experience. So, play, practice and have fun!

    Whatever sources you use to learn and develop your piano skills or any other instrument you might play... DO IT and USE IT again TODAY. My day or rather my practice session is behind me as usually with my PM app. Further I go, more exited I am and looking forward to more. I guess that you know that feeling already. If not, keep playing, practising and soon or later you will experience those wonderful moments that playing any instrument I guess, gives. So, play again today. Expect something great to happen and it will at one point. Don't miss that moment... actually it is hard to miss it because it makes you so happy Have a great day!

    It is never too late to play for a bit, even we have days like mine today when there is hard to find even minutes to relax. Luckily for my neighbours I have digital piano, so head set solves the problem and I can spend few moments playing. But you might be more lucky today and you did your practice session or about to start your proper practice session today. Do it just in case you can't when you have day like mine today... In that way we keep our journey to our goals more effective by not loosing those moments that are so powerful and deliver such a big amount of joy. So, play, practice, be better again then yesterday. Take care

    Need to go back with some basics but it is good. While doing that I can actually repeat some material, this time using different source, different app. That is me... done for today my almost two hours. You? Did you have your minutes maybe hours of fun, development and practice? Yes! - that is great! We are on the same side of today's achievements. NO! Well... there is still some hours left today... don't wait too long, don't hesitate... after all it is a lot of FUN, JOY. Playing music is FUN... hard work but... FUN!!
    Play! Have that fun! Have that pride from your accomplishments and improvements of your skills. It is in your hands! PLAY Have a great practice and rest of day

    Why not playing some music today? It could be something we know how to play already or we could as well learn something new. So, let's do it. Let's find some time and play and have a lot of fun. For me is still learning and developing my skills with my app PM. I have to be honest and say it is not always fun moments but doing or rather practising those sometimes boring exercises leads to moments where we can have a lot of fun... so keep that in mind while practising. Some hard work needs to be done to enjoy what comes after Have a great practice today. Have fun. Enjoy... after all it is something we like to do. Right?
