Sacrifices

I am realizing today how bummed I am that about a decision I made. I decided to take this year off of performing with the symphony I am a member of because of two reasons: the scheduling conflict with rehearsal and therapy and the added stress during a season where I am already afraid of falling apart.

I was just listening to the C.D. of our Christmas performance and it made me sad knowing I wasn't going to be part of that, but yet I know I have made the right decision for me. I was planning on taking the whole year off and returning at the end of the spring season, in time for all the summer concerts, but I am going to give myself permission to re-evaluate and possibly go back after the Christmas break.

You should totally see if you can join back---even if just to play when you can!

I joined a flute choir here b/c I missed play so much, does so much for me!

Don't you just hate that, when you make a decision and regret it? But you can always find someone to play with, no?

I am sorry the longing is there that you miss. Hopefully the time will pass quickly to re-evaluate dear one. Beautiful music. Thank you dear one for sharing!

Sometimes I hate decisions. But I think it's a good idea to re-evaluate in a few months.
