My Debut Music Video

This is a project I have been working on for almost a year. It’s my debut single/music video for my song Safe and Sorry released today. I hope you all enjoy it and please help me to spread the word by sharing it on your own blogs and other social sites, if you like it. I will definitely return the favor for you if you do! Love you all and thanks for being a part of this!!

Free Spirits (Part II)

Due to the high volume of positive responses on my poem “Free Spirits”, I have decided to continue it here. By the way, I am so glad that you all enjoy the writing- it makes me feel special 🙂

Here’s to the free spirits

Who’ve had enough

with the world’s expectations

and society’s bluff.

No, they’re not perfect

but they’re as real as it comes.

Here’s to the free spirits

Yea, here’s to us!

Honesty: Tread Carefully

Recently I have been learning a valuable lesson. One which differs from what I thought to be true as a kid. Growing up, I always heard, “honesty is the best policy.” Perhaps this is true when you’re a young, naive, and innocent child. But now, in my early twenties, I’m beginning to realize that there is such a thing as being too honest and I dance this line far too often. For one, not every person can handle honesty. And for two, not everyone deserves it.

I’m Thankful for You

The outpouring of love and support since the tragedy has been breathtaking. I am so grateful for each and every person who has reached out, from strangers to family, you’ve each helped me in a unique way all your own. My world was snatched like a rug from underneath my feet on June 11, 2012 when I lost my best friend and the love of my life. Since then, my life has changed dramatically. Everything that I thought I knew, all of our plans, our future, our dreams, they had to adjust. And that takes time. But today, I’m happy to say my feet are finally back on the ground. Although my knees shake, today, I stand. Nothing can fill the huge gap in my heart that now exists but that’s the beautiful part, I’m learning to live with this opening, to embrace it. It’s where our memories live, our love, and his spirit. It is this daring, fearless, and gentle spirit that I will continue to imitate in my own life. His absence has gone through me like a thread. Everything I do is stitched with his color.
