Long post warning: I feel I've been rather quiet and distant recently, so I just want to take a moment and say thank you to everyone who has ever supported me and what I do, especially my creative endeavors. Insecurity has been getting the best of me and I can feel it preventing myself from living in the present. Even in the midst of releasing 'Too Afraid To Say', a collection of songs that I am very proud of, I have been doubting myself and my abilities more than ever. Sometimes I feel like a fake. Sometimes I feel like I don't deserve to do what I love. Sometimes I just feel empty. I know the human mind has a way of doing this to everyone at some point, but it still can swallow me whole whenever it wants. I won't bore you with details, but I want to learn to be more transparent in my journey as an artist and person. I've spent too much time bottling up how I feel, and though it may not seem like much to the average listener, I've poured myself out on the new @theonesyouforgot
record. I've showcased my fears, pain, attitude, desires, and strength, and it's out there for anyone to listen to. I'm not a fan of the vulnerability of it all, but I'm learning that vulnerability is okay. It also helps knowing that maybe there is someone out there who can relate, and maybe my words can help them on their own path. To everyone who attended the release show last week, thank you so much. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for making me feel on top of the world for a little while. You all mean everything to me.
Creating music and art is my greatest love, but it is also my greatest fear. I've heard somewhere that "if your dreams don't scare you, they aren't big enough". Maybe I'm on the right track. Thanks for reading, and best of luck to you on whatever mission you are trying to achieve.
Best way to start the morning 🚣🏻♀️
