Hey guys, so here we are again…I’m not quite sure where to begin with this video, so I’ll just start… This piece was choreographed over 6 months ago and filmed 4 months ago at probably my most heightened period of sadness in my life, I won’t go into any detail but I will explain that this piece was representational of a very defining point in my life where I was stuck at a difficult crossroads of giving up…or pushing on. Six months later me, my family, and some other very close people in my life are proud to say that we stuck together & pushed through the hardship to get me back in a state of happiness & safety where I currently am today.
I made this video as a direct representation of my life back in January when I was struck with some horrid news on a solo tour of mine between 7 countries for three weeks. This video is made to show the juxtapostition of a lifestyle that appears glamorous but can in fact be very lonely and scary. Imagine dealing with some hard personal problems all alone 4,000 miles from anyone that can just be there to give you a hug & tell you “Everythings gunna be alright”. But that’s ENOUGH of the sad stuff because the message of this video is the exact opposite, this video is about THE JOURNEY, THE STRUGGLE, THE HARDSHIP, AND THE FIGHT that will make you YOU and stronger, healthier, and better person in the end for what you and your loved ones have gone through. What’s important about this piece, is that I didn’t choreograph it after my life had slowly settled down, I choreographed it at the absolute height of when I DIDN’T know if everything would “be alright”, and that is the message, the purpose. KEEP A CLEAR HEAD AND PUSH ON, KEEP MOVING FORWARD NO MATTER WHAT YOU ARE FACED WITH…NO MATTER WHAT, AND DON’T EVER LET ANYONE TELL YOU DIFFERENTLY…everything will, be alright.
Hopefully you all can understand these messages through my work loud and clear, but if not, it is here for anyone to read whenever they feel they need it. Thank you all so much for taking the time to watch this video & piece of my heart, hopefully I inspire some troubled souls out there to keep fighting if they are feeling tired. And I know I can never thank them half as much as they deserve but thank you most of all to my two beautiful parents who are the reason I am here, and the reason I never gave up. Julia & Peter Eastwood you are my saviors, my backbone, my encouragement, and my strength, love you mom and dad this is dedicated to you.
Shout out to my fellow Chicago born and raised hometown brothers @commonless_ for making another one of my visions become a reality with me.
TAKE A DEEP BREATH BECAUSE EVERYTHINGS GUNNA BE ALRIGHT!
Until next time guys- keep your heads up.
