2015

2015 really crept up on me this year, but that’s okay! I’m ready!

What an amazing year 2014 has been, both professionally and personally! I feel like I’ve gained so much more insight this year than I have any other. In terms of relationships, knowledge, and self-introspection, I definitely feel like a winner 😀

I really don’t do New Year’s Resolutions, but like to keep a mental list of things I’d like to accomplish sometime in this life 🙂 I like to give myself a little extra time for the procrastinator inside of me. I do, however, want to focus on the relationships that I currently have and really be intentional about them. That also applies to my relationship with Christ.

For too long I’ve dragged my baggage around, not quite feeling ready to give it all up. Learning how to surrender control and have faith has been such a struggle for me. This is definitely a conscious effort that I’ve been trying to adopt and do habitually. I really want to believe that this is the year it’ll happen! I understand that I’m human, I make mistakes, but where I falter is making excuses for myself not to get better.

As far as music goes, I definitely want to focus on songs that really really inspire me. I want to be fair with those who spend hours upon hours of frustration trying to get every little detail to sound right by focusing just as much of my time and energy.  In the past, I accepted a lot projects because I liked the song or thought it might be something I could write for. I want to be more intentional even about that! I am going to be more realistic about my timelines and workload this year. I almost blew up last year because of how overwhelmed and restricted I felt!! In taking on less projects, I hope to have more time and attention to devote in order to create real pieces that I deeply love and resonate with.

I’m sorry if you’ve contacted me through here, Soundcloud, Facebook, or YouTube and have not yet heard from me. I lose track of who I’ve responded to and have a long list of messages and emails that I am trying to get through! Be patient and persistent is the advice that I have for you 🙂

I uploaded some vocals onto soundcloud a few weeks ago for free download. Who knew so many beautiful melodies would come of it! I’m amazed at how differently my vocals were interpreted. These were definitely my top favorites <3 Check them out and follow!!
