There is nothing that frustrates me more than EXCUSES! There are no excuses for laziness.
If you have a dream and you want it bad enough, you'll go out and get. Nothing will stand in your way. You won't fail. People don't fail, they give up.
I've been at the point of giving up, more than once. In my last blog post "Rome Wasn't Built in a Day," I spoke about my recent financial issues. Money always holding me back. My financial choices as a teen finally caught up to me. All I have wanted to do since moving to the country music capital is record and release my music. I never had the money to invest in myself. Just as I was saving money to record, I lost my car by means of repossession. I wanted to give up. I couldn't chase this dream and have the car. I was looking at bankruptcy. I was ready to give it up but, I didn't come this far to give up.
Since my last blog post I have gone back to work. Twelve hour days for two weeks and then one week at home. Well, I've hardly been home. My "week off" is spent running around doing jobs and the weekends I'm playing gigs. Since my last blog post I have taken back possession of my car and am easily making the payments I was struggling to make before - and paying extra! My goal now is to have my debt all paid off by the end of the year. I am confident that with sacrifices, I can do it.
- My pride and joy back where she belongs -
I AM RECORDING VERY SOON!! Plans are in the works to head into the studio in the coming months. I can't wait to get to work! I will be working with a great producer on the Gold Coast. I won't give away too many details just yet, but it's coming and I'm super excited! It's exciting to think that by Tamworth Country Music Festival 2018, you'll be able to hear my VERY FIRST SINGLE!!
Speaking of Tamworth Country Music Festival 2018 - you'll be seeing a lot of me! With 9 confirmed dates and an awesome 5 piece band, we're going to bring you a show EVEN BIGGER than TCMF 2017. The setlist has been written and rehearsals are already underway. I will release a preview and introduce the band as it gets closer.
In other news - I was just doing my thing about eight weeks ago and the universe placed someone right in front of me. It's funny how things work out. I am the happiest I have been in a long time and I can't wait to introduce you all to my special someone very soon.
- I never knew happiness until I met you -
Anyway, back to what I was saying. DON'T GIVE UP! If things aren't working out, change your method. Nothing is impossible, you just need to work for it. Nothing comes easy. Make sacrifices. Follow your dreams ❤
Thanks for all the love and support. See you out on the road soon
