Paul said it better than I could, and it's the exact way I feel too. The racism in our country has to stop, and we must take accountability and make amends as people and as a country for the continued violence against black people and people of color. It's unacceptable and inexcusable on any level that George Floyd was killed, as well as many others that we've seen too.
As a white man trying to do my part in ending racism, I'm calling upon all of us, especially other white men and women to be kinder, better, and more understanding of what these protesting reactions mean.
I certainly don't want any violent protests or anyone else to be hurt, and at the same time can only imagine what it means to be discriminated against for hundreds of years based on the color of your skin, which keeps happening.
I know that many of us care deeply about this too and feel powerless of how to stop it in a peaceful manner and want to add our voices to it.

01/18/2020

More tributes to both Neil Peart and Ram Dass, two men who I greatly admired, (both rock and therapy right there). I've been thinking more about death and dying, something as a culture we don't like to think or talk much about. I admire both for similar and different reasons. (Neil was a better drummer than Ram though. 😊)

Some of the inspiration I received from Ram Dass was his book 'How Can I Help?' This was thankfully assigned reading early on in studying to be a therapist, plus his work on death and dying and being here now.

For me, I think about death in the spirit of informing the question of 'How shall we live?' Knowing that we're only here a very short time, even if that's for 100 years or so.

That question feels similar to Neil's question I always loved of 'What's the most excellent thing I can do today?' Not only was Neil's music amazing, but his writing was incredible as well.

That's inspiring. Doing my best to live fully, each day, with no regrets. I don't know of course, but it certainly looked like both Neil and Ram lived fully, with no regrets.
Regrets also reminds me of the incredible work of another person I admire, Bronnie Ware, a hospice, palliative care nurse, who worked with thousands of people, helping them die with dignity, being with them in their last moments.
Over the years that she worked with people, she noticed patterns from talking with them of their biggest regrets in life.

She wrote a book about it called 'The Top Five Regrets of the Dying - A Life Transformed by the Dearly Departing.'

According to Bronnie, the five most common regrets shared by people nearing death were:

1. "I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me."
2. "I wish I hadn’t worked so hard."
3. "I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings."
4. "I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends."
5. "I wish that I had let myself be happier."

Do you relate with any of these, and if so, how?

It seems like asking ourselves those questions of 'how shall we live,' how can I help,' and what's the most excellent thing I can do today,' can be a pretty good starting point and guide.

Wherever you are in the world today, whatever it looks like for you, I hope you have a 'most excellent day!' ✌️❤️🎼

P.S. & Thanks Neil, Ram and Bronnie, for the Rock & the Therapy!

Have you heard Instagram is doing away with likes? Who knows, maybe Facebook is next? Regardless of the possible reasons why this is happening, (i.e. influencer marketing business), from a mental health perspective, it may be a good thing for a lot of people that Instagram is doing away with likes, which may help with lessening anxiety, fears of judgment, and social ‘comparanoia.’

However, let's go deeper and remember our self worth isn't based likes, followers, or vanity metrics to begin with. If we rely on this or any social media for self esteem, our house is built on sand.

Instagram and other social media also didn't create this problem, they just do really well at tapping into our fears and insecurities and monetizing it.

If you feel like your sense of self is out of balance based on likes, or followers, or whatever, pivot and go deeper to develop feeling better about yourself.

One of the best ways to do this? Go help somebody else, even if it's in some small way. From letting somebody go in traffic, to helping somebody carry their bags of groceries, or just giving a smile.
It's hard to feel like crap about yourself if you're doing something meaningful for somebody else and especially if they're appreciative and are saying thank you.
Now go rock your day!

Welcome to Musicians On The Record & The Rock Therapy Show

Welcome to Musicians On The Record & The Rock Therapy Show, I’m David Ward, just a guy with a show, who loves playing music and talking to rock stars!

My Story? I wasn’t even thinking about doing an audio & video podcast, I was just looking for more drum lessons! Then I connected online with Dom Famularo, The Global Ambassador of Drumming. After some lessons, and talking about being a drummer, psychotherapist, and former radio DJ, he suggested I create this show and offered to help me connect with some of the best musicians on the planet. So, I said, yeah, let’s do that!

Through hard work, networking, and good fortune, I’m grateful to have met these amazing musicians and brought you their stories for over three years. Now it’s evolving again, and I’m combining my love of music and work in mental health, with The Rock Therapy Show. It’s Not Talk Therapy, it's Rock Therapy: Conversations with Musicians about Music, Mental Health, Motivation and Mindset.

Why Rock Therapy? Well, in addition to hosting the show, I’m also a licensed psychotherapist, (and an unlicensed drummer), and want to reduce the stigma of talking about these topics. I always find it inspiring and courageous when some of my favorite musicians talk about overcoming their struggles, like Eric Clapton and Aerosmith sharing about their recovery, Bruce Springsteen battling depression, and one of my favorites, Paul Stanley of KISS, talking about his struggles and going to therapy.

Paul said it better than I could, and it's the exact way I feel too. The racism in our country has to stop, and we must take accountability and make amends as people and as a country for the continued violence against black people and people of color. It's unacceptable and inexcusable on any level that George Floyd was killed, as well as many others that we've seen too. As a white man trying to do my part in ending racism, I'm calling upon all of us, especially other white men and women to be kinder, better, and more understanding of what these protesting reactions mean.
