Stop Wiggling

January 2, 2023, 12:47 PM · I know. You love wiggling. I'll be honest with you. I love it too. Of course we love it.

Wiggling is beautiful. Wiggling is sexy. Wiggling makes the world go round.

But here's the thing, I'm willing to bet you're a bit too dependent on it. At the very least, I certainly am.

That's why, for the next 7 days, I've decided that I won't be doing any wiggling. Not even a little bit. Nada.

Instead, I'm going to focus on other ways to refine my sound. Basically, if I can sound good without wiggling, I'll sound much better once I start to wiggle again.

I'd like to encourage you to consider trying this too. I think we could all use a wiggle fast.
