Mixed Messages Day 55: The Positives

Every session, we try and focus on them. It's the only way to get past fear. Otherwise, fear can be paralyzing, it can lead to repeating the same mistakes over and over again.


The positives change everything. When a downward spiral starts, the positives create the necessary space to step back and reassess. When a rhythm is interrupted, the positives send reminders of the habits that can be used to reestablish it. And when we think it's not good enough, the positives reframe the dialogue to show a bigger picture filled with progress.


When expecting good things to happen, we often make them happen. And right now, we expect our next album to be much better than our first. We expect that it will demonstrate more musicianship. And more than anything, we expect the positives to guide us to the finish.
