Here I am sitting on my 8th plane ride in the past 30 days. I'm exhausted but thankful to be traveling and working. To think a year ago I was willing to give it all up, and be quote un quote "normal." Looking back at it, I can't help but laugh because I'm everything BUT normal. I know I am where I am in this moment for a reason.
A lot of you don't know my background, or who I am for that matter. I have written a ton about my journey, and myself on my tumblr blog. Check out past posts, and follow my journey on Tumblr!
Just like you I have goals, hopes, and dreams. I happened to pick the business I'm in and that's what I genuinely love to do. It's a hard one, but it's worth it to me, and I know many people would like to be in my shoes. Whether it be music, modeling, or even blogging on this very site. These are things I am passionate about or I wouldn't be doing it. I have a list of goals that I look at every single day. Obviously things having to do with my career. Also, things I haven't even touched yet. Those are things I work on all day every single day. For example, I want to take a cooking classes and maybe team up and own a restaurant someday. I want to get my yoga certification, I want to write a book. I want to travel to Italy for a year and live there. These are all things I would love to eventually do and accomplish in my life, over time I truly believe I can do it all.
My journey is your journey. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you through my music, my mistakes, my trials & errors. I love to help because I truly believe you get what you give. I try to be the nicest, caring, passionate person I can be. So far since I've made that switch to "Always do for other people everything you want them to do for you." I have seen great things come my way.
The work I do is hard, filled with rejection and heartbreak. Also, tons of time alone. I think from the Internet people may think my life is "easy, or perfect." I have my great days and my God awful days. I cry, I make mistakes, I've been heartbroken. I'm human. I'm constantly rejected, but I'm also constantly receiving beautiful blessings. I work hard. I stay focused and dedicated every single day. Life never turns out the way you expected, but it's all part of the journey.
I want you all to know you can create the life you want for yourself. You can do it, you need to remain kind, be patient and stay focused. Everything will fall into place.
I'm still creating my life and life sends me unexpected turns, but I never take a day for granted.
Whether someone tells me "I need to lose weight," or that "My song isn't written correctly." Or that "I can't do it all." (Yes, I have these people too. ) We all have bullies, the negative influences and the haters. They sometimes kill me inside, but they don't change my mind about life. I take the criticism and turn it into the most positive light and continue doing what I do.
Because this is my life after all ...
This is your life too.
