ran into someone i grew up with. her mom was our girl scout leader :0) talking to her about the family and in talking about myself described myself as an artist. i felt this weird tug like “are you really saying this just openly?” and then an answer “YES” haha. i felt happy, proud, and free. in the past i thought the closet was the safest place for me, but it turns out we are the biggest blessing to those around us and to ourselves doing what we are best at and being completely 100% who we are. i wish you all courage also! #happysaturday
Once you discover that you can, then you must. And it’s not easy. You have to take direct steps. You really have to count your blessings and you have to make a decided effort to not get seduced by the blues.

When I wrote”The Flipside”, I didn’t think I would be rehearsing it w/ a big band sometime in the near future… Always stick to your dreams & goals. Focus on what you love to do more than anything else. It’s not about the fame or the money in the end (although the money can definitely help lol). It’s ultimately about that feeling you get when you’re doing just what you set out to do & ultimately love. That’s the true reward and there’s no other feeling in the world like it. #thankful
