As my friends/fans on this ride called life, I feel its not only important to share my music with you, but also my journey and what brought me here!
Today has been a long one to say the least. By day I am a contractor and by night, following my dreams making music.
What some of you may not know is that through it all, I am a full time addict "in recovery". Yes, you read that correctly. I struggled for years not being able to say no, looking for a way out, with no hope in sight.
Reality was, I was looking in all the wrong places. Looking for that freedom or that fix from any and all problems I was dealing with internally through self medication.
As I sit in this hot bath sore and exhausted after a long day(5 am-11pm) I can't help but feel blessed to feel this pain today. I am grateful to be able to be in the position I am in. The physical pain holds absolutely no comparison to the mental anguish I inflicted on not only myself, but everyone around me (no) thanks to addiction.
With that being said, it's still a tough battle finding balance in the scheme of things. But it is possible! No matter what's going on, how busy I am, or how tired I may be, there always seems to be a silver lining to whatever it is I'm going through. If and only IF, I'm willing to get out of the problem and into the solution.
One of my favorite sayings is: "Nothing worth having comes easy and nothing that comes easy is worth having".
Sometimes easier said than done, I know, but I know first hand that it is so worth it!
Thankfully I have great family and friends who support me 100% and are there to pick me up when I fall. Failure is part of the process for all of us! You see, it is when we fail we grow.
For that I am truly grateful.
There is hope. There is gratitude. There is freedom.
I'm living proof❤🤘 ~
