Music has and always will be one of my greatest passions in life. I love following the music of
many different artists. The words always resonate with me based on where I happened to be in
my life in that moment of time. It can make me happy, bring back memories from years past,
remind me of someone special in my life, or it can just make me want to enjoy my day!
This passion has definitely inspired me to tap deep into my soul, to uncover parts of me that I
never knew even existed. Sometimes it is easy to get lost in the moment, an escape from reality of sorts. As I travel my own journey, inspired by this passion in my life, it becomes clear
that to be really successful at something, there needs to be an underlying desire to work hard
to reach the aspirations and goals I set for myself. This is not always easy in the musical journey. Pursuing a career in an ever-changing industry, full of competition and scrutiny, challenges me on a daily basis. I have been traveling this road for what seems like an eternity. There have been great moments and there have been even more “throw in the towel” moments; but, at the end of the day, I know this journey is not over. In fact, it truly has just begun.
The people who inspire me every step of the way give me the strength to endure the tough times and the encouragement to keep my nose to the grindstone. I have ultimate respect
for those who have travelled before me and achieved greatness. I have been blessed to work
with some amazing producers and writers. My artistic idols and mentors continue to give me
that push when I need it most. I am exploring many different directions and paths within the
music business and with each person I meet, I gain a new perspective that I might not have had
even the day before.
While I don’t know where this journey will ultimately take me in my life, I do know that I have taken my passion and created a journey all my own. It is not always easy to stay positive, but
at the end of the day, I can honestly say that God has given me these gifts and I am enjoying
the journey, despite the roadblocks. Many people settle for a mediocre life, doing something
just because everyone says they should. Ultimately, I don’t think this is the secret to happiness.
Having a passion and enjoying the pursuit, the journey, is the key!
