Well, I’ll be the first to say its been a long time. I kind of disappeared and got caught up in surviving New York City life (financially and emotionally). SO much has happened….. But what an experience it has been. I have fallen in love, moved house and been songwriting A LOT! Thats a great thing, because soon I will be releasing some of my music… A long time ago I bought some recording equipment and have been spending some days using that and making my own tracks for demo’s of my songs. It has not been easy, and it is something that takes practice, but I am working hard on getting that done!
Growing up, I wrote songs but I never really liked them, I would never perform them, or admit that I was even writing. I was embarrassed to share any songs with anyone. But these days I have been so proud of what I’ve been writing, it is all incredibly personal, and has been like a therapy for me through some really hard times. Music really can help you heal. It is like that friend that is always there to listen, you just talk and talk, and work through your issues and feel like you’re in a safe space.
I have been doing some modelling, which has been so much fun! I love modelling. Again, I had a tough time with it growing up because I was never comfortable with my body. I was never one of those people with confidence in themselves, or their appearance. But that has changed a lot, and moving New York was a huge part of that. I have learned to love myself and my body. I have learned to accept who I am, which is by far one of the most important things we can do. Much like the frequently quoted saying “no one will love you until you learn to love yourself”, no one else is going to respect you or your body, if you won’t. It starts and ends with you! This was such an important lesson for me, and its a journey I’m still on, but one that I have made such great progress in. I have posted some modelling photos to my “Pictures” section – so please feel free to check them out.
So, here is to 2017. A better year. The year that I release some of my own music and continue to chase my dream. Stay tuned, because I’m really excited for what’s in store….
