Daring yourself to dream is a great idea, and I suggest that everyone give it a shot at some point in life. Today could be the day you start allowing your mind to wander a little more into the depth of your true self.
My entire life, I thought that I had a clear-cut vision of my path, where I wanted to go, and who I was. Theatre was my thing, and I buried inside of me the fact that I have always been a serious sucker for music of all genres – be it a tender pop ballad, a neck-breaking metal jam, or a soulful serenade that never fails to grab my heart with eloquence, music speaks to me on the deepest level possible. It makes me feel more alive than anything in the world, more connected, in tune. No pun intended.
So, to make a long story filled with tears, sleepless nights, and hours of being locked in my room (think “Beethoven Upstairs,” and you’ll have a pretty accurate depiction of my days), shorter and less painful, some VERY EXCITING things became OFFICIAL in my life.
For one thing, I am officially a member of BMI as a working songwriter. That means that I am now part of an organization that houses the likes of Britney Spears, Maroon 5, Elton John, and Sting, to name just a few. What projected all of this into motion, you wonder?
I just worked for an incredibly iconic act, and am still pinching myself!
None of this would have been possible without the guidance and constant motivation from some really incredible people who seriously believe in me, and everyone who has been cheering me on from the start.
I am so lucky to have you all in my life, and this is, truly, just the beginning……♥
