I think what people mostly wouldn't believe is, in my career as a performing artist and musician,
I had burned out...twice
Oh ya...that's right.
Tough to believe huh?
I guess back then, I worked too hard on something and I expected rewards and merit to come too quickly.
Maybe I expect too much of myself.
Well...I guess when you are young and full of driven energy and not having a matured mind and a good sense of direction....that's what happens.
Actually, this could just happen to anyone.
NOW...it's all different, it has all changed.
I'm a different person now..artistically and creatively.
I have matured over the years, artistically I've grown so much and I'm much more focus as well as being practical, objective and rational about what I do.
For example, when I did "Broadway Parodies Lah!"
I wasn't nervous...not one bit
I was calmed and relaxed and all set,ready to go.
Brian did tell me about how mean the critics can be, but i just didn't care at all
I took that as an opportunity and turn it around and exploit it positively.
All I care was to give my best, and nothing else matters.
Not to mention...enjoy myself at the same time.
Actually it was a new journey for me...
A new beginning, a new chapter..it's like Part 2 or a new Volume or Updated Edition in my career.
It's another level entirely.
Maturity in ones artistry is priceless.
As a human being, I'm still learning as I go along. Our journey in life is a learning experience and it won't stop.
When we think everything is at the end...it's not. Because actually.....it's a new beginning......
