Everything happens for a reason; in some situations it’d be nice if we knew what that reason was…nonetheless, I’ve found all the things I’ve come through, good and bad, have molded me into who I am today. I won’t ever say I’ve had it hard in life because I can think of countless other’s stories far beyond the detriment of my own. But there have been a few bumps in the roadway along my journey. My father was always a hero to me. He was a really big body builder so he always gave the best bear hugs imaginable! The ones where you’d be like okay seriously I think I may just pop, this is a bit ridiculous! He helped raise me, my little sister, my older sister, and three older brothers up until I was on the brink of 12 years old. July 4th of my eleventh year was a milestone for my life. It was my brother’s birthday and also, the day my father took his last breath. He died of a cocaine overdose that took him away from us at age 42. I’m not the person to rant about my life and I’m not writing this for a sad, “I’m sorry for your loss..”. I’m simply writing to inform that I am not perfect and I have been through some relatable issues that happen more often in families than one may think.
I have dreams. Sometimes I feel I dream so big that I live in a fantasy world. And when I put my mind to it, I do it as BIG as I can. People have often informed me that my aspirations are more than likely unattainable but I don’t choose that. I know what I want in life. Having written music for two years now, I can say without a shadow of doubt that I will not choose to veer off to “Plan B”. There is no Plan B.”Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”. This is me doing what I love.
A few random things about me.. I love summer. I love woodsy things because I grew up in the country woods in Nashville, Tennessee for the majority of my life and that’s what feels like home. I was a tomboy when I was a kid and had a shotgun at age 3. Nope, I never got to shoot it, darn. I love roller coasters and I really want to go skydiving! Come with me yeah? I have an odd crush on Jack Black’s sense of humor. And red is my favorite color (although it changes like I change clothes). Dogs are better than cats. I’m going to travel the entire world before I die; I add to my bucket list daily. I’m quite strange and I’m okay with it. Everyone’s a little weird, others are just better at hiding it. When I was 5, my first aspiration in life was to be a cashier at Wal-Mart..yeah, that quickly changed. I then wanted to be an archeologist so I could travel the world, dig up mummy tombs, and find dinosaur bones. I played volleyball in high school and I was a cheerleader. I tried basketball and I’m pretty sure we lost every game that incorporated the “Bean Factor”..so..I resigned my position.
One of the best pieces of advice that I’ve ever heard was this, “You’ll never hit if you don’t swing”. So this is me taking a whack at it. Thank you so much for stopping by love. It really means more to me to have supportive people like you in my life than anything else associated with this business. Always follow your dreams no matter who tells you what. Follow your heart.
