So earlier this month I really got out of the loop of things. I wasn’t focused on my goals, friendships, and even my music. I talked to some of my friends and adults that I was close to and they really helped bring me out of just being down on myself. I realized I was having a low and was just ready to get back to the happy loving me. After many many days and long talks with not only adults but also with myself, I started to feel a lot better. I started to realize that I need to come back to loving myself for who I am and keep moving forward. I learned that there are bumps in the road, and things that will break your heart and bring you down, but when you come out of the darkness you get so much stronger. It makes me so happy to know that I have found the place that I prayed and hoped I would find again.
Anyway, music. So where does music play in to all of this? I can sit here for another hour and tell you how important to my emotions music is, but you’ve heard that from me many times. Right now, music is helping me by giving me a new goal. I’m really focused on loving myself and setting new goals mentally, physically, and for my future path and career. I’m so happy to be sharing that I’ve finally started writing songs and really putting my all in to them. I’ve created so many stories through relationships with my good friends and others and I think a way to really remember and share these stories is through my music. Also feeling a wide range of emotions have made me want to express them more than ever. Not only am I writing new music, I’m challenging myself with harder guitar songs and have really been focusing on putting myself back out their and looking for new gigs. I’m so happy to finally be back on the path that I took a detour on a few months ago, and I hope you guys will keep loving me through it.
All in all, I’m really content on where I am now, and am excited to share the peace and love with you guys again. I hope that my little story can be something that you guys can look back on if you’re starting to feel a low point or just need a little boost in your self love. I just want you guys to know that I’m not doing this for sympathy, because as of right now I’m super happy with who I am and what life has in store for me. I’m ready for sharing more music and stories with you guys so be ready haha.
