Do I dare tell this true story so close to Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanza? A few years ago a movie, The Secret, came out. And what is the secret you might ask? “The Secret” it turns out is the law of attraction. Attracting what you want by simply asking, and believing to receive your heart’s desire. When I heard this I thought back to May of 2004.
I was desperately searching for the perfect place to start a music school while dealing with the fear and anxiety of daring to dream and hope such a big thing. So I kept thinking, if I just had $1000, I’d do it. I’d put that deposit down to rent the building and take the leap. That May my whole family was attending my niece Stephanie’s wedding. Mom and chatted outside before going into the wedding. Suddenly, she reached into her purse. “Grandad’s estate has been settled and he wanted all of his grandchildren to have a little something, “she said.
She handed me an envelope. There was a check made out to me for $1000.
By September 2004 I took that leap and opened The Music Connection. And after all these years, I’d like to add one more thing to ask, believe, and receive. Gratitude. I am so grateful for the honor of knowing all of you parents, families, teachers, and staff through our connection to music.
Happy Holidays and Thank You!
