Other than the fact that 'Begin Again' is a great movie featuring Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo (my favorite) and Adam Levine.. I am in a point in my life where I feel like I am in fact, beginning again.
Let me explain.
2018 in particular has been very eye opening to say the least. A traumatic life event can really change your entire world for the worst or for the better; it's your choice. I chose to break free, rise and use this life event to change my world for the better. Don't get me wrong, I already had a great life; my marriage was transparent & loving, two wonderful pups, my friendships were strong, I had a great job making decent money, a roof over my head and food on the table.
With all of that, I was still missing three key components: passion, faith & kids.
1. My passion is and always has been music and helping humanity. I quit my corporate job and focused all of my energy on writing my first solo album, Eleven Eleven http://smarturl.it/eleven-eleven (if you haven't heard it yet hehe). It couldn't be just any album, I had to be honest with myself and everyone else. This album had to expose the deepest secrets in my life in hopes that someone else could relate and heal through my music.
2. My faith has always been a part of me but I never had a raw relationship with God until now. I had never been so angry at him in my entire life but at the same time so reliant. In times where you are the lowest point mentally in your life, it's what you decide to do in that moment that shapes your character and who you are meant to be in this world.
3. This one is a toughie - because we can't really control when we get to start our family can we? My husband always reminds me to just ride the wave and enjoy these happy moments now without fear. I can say with 150% confidence, that we are going to be wonderful parents one day.
This year I finally finished my album, I'm 11 days away from reading the entire Bible and I feel totally transformed. So where do I go from here? How do I keep the motivation and what are my next milestones? How do I begin again? Time to make a new vision board and some new milestones; 2019 is going to be a beautiful year.
