In the mid 90’s, I made a giant leap into the unknown. I started writing songs and performing. Though it might seem like no big deal to someone who sees me perform now, at the time it was the scariest thing I had ever done. Most of the people in my life thought I had lost my mind. What I didn’t know then was that that single leap would open me up to everything I had been wanting - a life that’s creative, a me who is conscious, and a heart that’s courageous.
Through the process of building a career as an artist, I woke up. I healed an eating disorder, I got over depression, I built a business, I sold over 65,000 CD’s, I toured the country several times over, I stopped thinking my emotional reactions were the truth, and I learned how to consciously create my life and my career.
The more I recognized my own shifts and revelations, the more passionate I became about non-songwriting stuff: intention, spirituality, personal growth, and even business. And I guess other people started to recognize this about me because they started inviting me to teach, talk and present keynote addresses about these very topics. This has been a nice addition to an already fulfilling career as a performer and songwriter.
I write this blog to inspire people to live creatively, consciously and courageously. I write this blog to help other people heal depression, eating disorders, or hopelessness. I write this blog to encourage people to act in spite of fear. I write this blog because if it weren’t for other people out there teaching and inspiring, I never would have found the courage. This is my way to be one of those people.
