I recently spent time in Nashville visiting my husband’s family. While I was brushing my hair one morning, I overheard my brother-in-law, Randy, saying that he’s hard on himself, and it sometimes keeps him from networking in the music industry in Nashville.
We are all very close and love each other dearly. We have different approaches to life and use each other’s strengths to think about what matters most. My direct manner reflects a liberated woman, raised in Los Angeles, which can be somewhat out of context in a southern environment, where being polite can rule over being direct. Nevertheless, their unconditional acceptance of me over 30 years is something I cherish.
