"Stay in your lane, bro!"
I love this phrase coined by AT&T in a recent commercial... I have been using it for the past few years because it just sums up how I want to march through my own life. On a recent trip to Colorado, our family took a bike ride down the Vail Pass. Aside from the breathtaking views I had some time to reflect about what "staying in your lane" really looks like in the real world. We often have to share that lane with others and let's be real, we all approach it differently. Some want to race in the lane, while others may fall off, some climb with much determination, while others stroll, taking their time. While biking we encountered all of this, including people who even blocked the lane.
This got me thinking about what it means to "stay in your lane" as an artist. It's easy to get distracted by all the ways other approach their creativity, so I constantly remind myself to "stay in my own lane". I strive to be respectful to those I share it with and most of all enjoying the view as I coast along creating art that inspires me in hopes it inspires you.
