I feel very strongly about music, about art, about expression and the honesty of feeling in the world. And, when I look at those around me, something dawned on me.
I don’t do what I do for show. I don’t do what I love to show off.
Yes, in any artist there breeds a desire to be heard. But it’s not for vanity.
When you feel strongly about art, you do it for you. You do it for the things you care about.
And perhaps the reason I have been experiencing the things I have been experiencing, and people have been taking recognition to reach out to me, is because they took notice of my putting myself out there, or they could feel how genuine I feel about this all.
That innocence is hard to come by.
When you are honest to the true feelings in your heart and your intuition and your mind and your beliefs and your drive… People will take notice and respond to that.
That just dawned on me.
When I was thirteen, I lived by the motto to just be yourself, for it’s the best character you could ever play. That honesty to myself has allowed me to feel even more blessed by the things that happen in my life.
If you are feeling unwell, I hope you can have the courage to be honest to yourself, as well. Take things as they come; don’t expect for anything more; just pray that your best efforts will lead you the right way.
