- To address some major chronic pain issues I've dealt with for most of my life, last year I stepped outside of my comfort zone and committed to seriously embracing a Hot Yoga practice. I've practiced 3-5 times a week since then. What I've learned from this journey has truly taken me so far beyond pain relief. More than anything I've learned that nothing you do or have done in this life should ever define you. Even if what you have done all of your life is a "good" thing, or for a good cause. That mentality is bondage.. It's a form of mental slavery. A deep fish hook in your brain that's so incredibly hard to break free from. That bondage for me has been music. By no means do I mean music has been a bad thing at all. I cannot begin to explain all of the incredible things that I've experienced, and am still experiencing every single day along my journey. But I've been in this music industry for almost 20 years, and starting at such a young age, it has always been this thing that for whatever deep rooted reasons, I just "HAD" to do. My calling some would say. It was my sole identity for so long. I have always been filled with this incredibly heavy burden and immense weight that I, myself, had put on my shoulders, to "have" to save the world through music. I'm so happy that I sincerely do not view music in this light any more. Music is so much more to me than can be confined or defined by one idea or purpose. It's the most beautiful & memorable art that exists. Whatever I do from here on out, musically speaking, will be from a place of true freedom & true happiness. Man....I feel like I can breath such a deep breath after saying that. We are complex beings who are in a constant state of change. God does not wish for us to live in a state of stress or frustration. We should have a genuine peace about ourselves and life in general because of our knowledge of the Truth. It's easy to lose sight of all of it when you are burdened with the thought of "having" to be or do this or that. Just be you. Love God & Love People with everything you have. That's is our sole charge & purpose. #God #yoga #hotyoga #fitness #freedom #chronicpain #family #life #soul #spirit #music

- πŸ™πŸŽΉπŸŒŠ You left me stranded on a Scarlett Hill / Alone I stand upon these Scarlett Hills. Over 6 years ago in the winter in a cold basement in Minnesota, I recorded almost a full album of songs centered around the heaviness of heartbreak in relationships... I've decided to start releasing those songs possibly under another moniker in single format. Stay tuned.. Non Official artwork. #loveΒ #heartbreakΒ #relationshipsΒ #brokenhearts#musicΒ #newmusicΒ #newmusicalert

- Do you ever think about all the moments in history that brought you & your soul mate together? It's why I love looking at really old pictures of great grandparents. Think of all the moments that had to play out exactly as they did. All of the different people, places, the pain, & the pleasure.... Every moment playing such an integral role in the making of you & the ones you love. How can your heart not be full of gratitude? How can you not feel loved just to exist? πŸ“· @hannahmannphoto_ #family #love #soulmates #MaddoxGrey #MaddoxWashington #NovaWashington
