Reflection vs Progress

December 9th

The holidays are fast approaching and as I step back to take a breath and reflect on the year that has just past, I’m trying to figure out where my head is at. We have had lots of ups and downs with this Global Groove Network adventure and I’m just having one of those days of question. I was trying to figure out what I should talk about in this particular entry. Reflection came to mind but I almost don’t want to put myself in that head space right now. Progress seems like the better topic to chat about but again, my head is all over the map today trying to tell myself, where am I exactly?

Reflection and Progress… two states of mind that have their own unique differences and parallels. I have come to know this as the two driving forces in my life right now that keep my mind on a constant see-saw of emotion. How is it as humans that we feel so much? Sometimes I wish I could turn my brain off and not think about this project but I’m consumed with it. The passion is good, don’t get me wrong, but it really starts to eat away at you as every roadblock or new challenge that presents itself amplifies the continual frustration of making a project like this come to life. I love what I’m doing but it takes a little away from me each day because of the amount of stress required to fulfill a dream.

I just turned 33 on November 19th and as we approach the New Year, this will mark 3 years in the making. I’m really proud of what I’ve accomplished and what is available on our site. I really feel we’ve captured the essence of the electronic scene with GGN. The d-jays, the promoters, the club goers, as well as new scenes that I’ve been exposed to as I’ve traveled the world are life experiences. I get stressed and writing my thoughts out and sharing with the general public helps me control my see-saw that I continually ride… I’m looking forward to writing my next entry come the New Year, with hopefully some more insightful thoughts on the projects progress. Sometimes just spitting out thoughts randomly like I have helps me think clearly… for now I have to keep those ideas to myself but I promise I will share in the near future.

Until the next time… my suggestion is to check out the site and take a peak at the amazing content that is available, including our newest segment on my adventures in Ibiza. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
