Liberation

Category: Ben Torres

I’m sorry I’ve been so quiet recently. It’s because over the past few months I’ve done an intense amount of traveling, which forced me to take a step away from music.

During this time I did a lot of self reflecting and came to some strong realizations about myself. (Especially when I was in Miami)

Prior to that trip, I felt like music was a full time job instead of a passion and I tricked myself into believing I was worth nothing more than the quality of my songs.

However, the down time I had made me realize that music is very similar to human beings. Both were never meant to be perfect.

For the very first time in years, I didn’t feel the need to play or improve and that was one of the most liberating experiences I’ve ever had.

Don’t get me wrong, I still plan on pursuing music and I’m still going to wake up every morning asking myself what I can do to improve myself.

But from now on, I’m going to do it with a much different mindset.

I’m going to accept the fact that my music will never be perfect because I know that is EXACTLY what a fearless artist does.

A fearless artist doesn’t worry about mistakes, they welcome them because they know they are inevitable.

So from this day I forward, I plan on doing the same.

Let’s see where it leads.
