3 ways to start living the life you want!

April 22, 2017

Wow time flies!   Today I want to talk about “3 ways to start living the life you want!”

  1.  Decide what success is for yourself!-Many people will come up to me all the time and be like ” I never hear you on the radio”.  “Are you famous?”.  Its totally cool for them to ask these questions.  It is definitely a weird feeling when someone asks you if you are famous.  The answer is it doesn’t really matter.  If someone really believes in what they are doing and and love what they do that’s what matters.  You may say, “Oh she is bitter about not being on the radio.  etc etc.  Honestly no I am not.  I am really happy being an Independent artist.  I know I will not be played on the radio at least at this moment in time.  Major labels work with the radio stations.   If you are not on a Major Label you will not get played.  Its that simple.  Once you realize this and be ok with where you are at its beautiful.  Can you blame the labels?  No they are a business and they need to do what they need to do.   Success for me is continually creating and making music that people can feel.  When you can create something beautiful you can see the world in a whole new light.

2.      

Make a vision board- If you do not know what this is you can google it or I can make another blog post about it.  It has honestly really worked as crazy as it sound at first.

3.  Perception-Things will go wrong at times!  Its inevitable.  Its how you look at it that matters.   So many people told me you cant make an album it costs thousands of dollars.  In my mind I thought “Ok if I work 2 jobs I can save enough money in 1 year to create an album.”  So I went out worked and worked and worked.  I went to work from 9am to 8pm and then went to a small basement studio from 9pm – 3 am everyday for 8 months.  People said “What songs are you going to record.  People are not willing to write for people they have never heard of.”  I finished writing 1o songs on the guitar and piano and that was my first album.  I also had some nice session players come in and play additional instrumentation for like $100 a song.  (You can find many players at colleges that are excellent and would love to be on albums)

Through all of these I am trying to say that you can make your dreams happen.  Think outside the box and know going into it things will not be easy.  It will probably never happen in the way you think.  You have to adjust.  Life is an adjustment everyday. We are here to grow and discover life.

Transformation Day

October 20, 2016

Last month I performed at the “Worth Of One” convention which promotes positive self- esteem in women. We did a makeover for 4 women in need. See the beautiful story by clicking the link below:

One of the girls we did a makeover for had written this beautiful letter to me and you can see it in the picture.  It was a truly touching experience and I will never forget it.  These girls had nothing and it was so amazing to see the transformation just in themselves throughout the day.  They all stated they felt like they were not of worth and by the end you could see in their eyes they felt beautiful.  I hope they still feel that way and continue too.  It’s not the past that defines us.  We have today to decide who we want to be and when the sun rises tomorrow we can embrace it with a smile.

What Is Your Worth?

October 12, 2016

This past week I had the opportunity to speak at an event called the “Worth Of One”.

The event was held on World Suicide Prevention Day.  I really loved doing this because I truly believe we are all important and have something to offer this world.  There have been times in my life where I didn’t really feel “Worth It” or “Worthy”.  This is not the case anymore.  I have been there and those times are hard, dang hard.  Life can be beautiful it you just have to find it.

 

If you need help find it!  This event was specifically geared to women.  I don’t know why but it seems like so many of us get these thoughts in our head that we have to be perfect and if we are not that effects self esteem but the reality is no one is perfect.  I am by far perfect and thats ok.  What is perfection anyways?  Is perfection really real?

 

Everyone’s perception is different of what perfection is.  Society claims that certain things get people closer to perfection but in reality its all BS.  If you are reading this article you are beautiful just the way you are.  Big, Skinny, black, white, short tall or whatever.  We are all trying to become better.  If we all can bring each other up and not dwell on our mistakes life would be amazing!

So lets do it together!
