Thankfulness and Transparency
I would love to say my life is this glorious rock-star-traveling-adventure that I attempt to portray on facebook, twitter, and instagram, however, when it comes down to it, I am just a 27 year old girl, married with two crazy dogs, trying to make a dream come true. Granted, I do think I have a pretty amazing life, I am #blessed ;) However, I have struggled for years to "get my music out there" and actually make a couple bucks doing so. I always felt like I needed more time to really commit to my love for songwriter, performing, and producing. I believe my dad and I have some great music that can truly touch people's lives.
I have worked on my music part time through high school, my bachelors and masters degrees, and three years of teaching middle and high school English/Reading. So there is it. Nothing crazy fancy, no wild party life. No luck. No being discovered. I have worked really hard to stay alive and help support my family and my husband, while all the while working part time on my music.
I guess I wanted to write this post to just really explain my thankfulness and what is going on in my life. (I am feeling really thankful and happy today). Yesterday, we arrived in Tulsa. You see, my husband, after many years of "climbing the ladder", studying, and working many hours of overtime, got the job he has been working towards; He is a grand opening supervisor for Chick-Fil-A. This job of his, has us moving every 6-8 weeks letting us see the country and letting me share my music outside of my normal circle and online platforms. All of that to say, I am finally at a point on my life where I don't have to work a "job"; I get to work on music FULL time. No longer do I have to teach, or work at a grocery store. Therefore, the THANKFULNESS!
I also wanted to thank those of you who read this blog, follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube. Thank you for finding my life at least slightly interesting enough to click those "follow" and "like" buttons. It means so much to me. I really hope that my music touches you and in a small way changes and/or impacts your life. That is my goal. That is why I HAVE TO SHARE IT! I do believe in the butterfly effect (Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnwddVuhW8c) and I think each little decision we make can impact others in a great way. I believe that about my own existence, actions, and art.
I hope you look forward to more music, posts, updates, music videos, online chats and concerts, doxie adventures of the Suite Life of Lily and Luna, blogs, and more. See you later.
