Hey, what's up?
I hope you had a great week. Life is no cakewalk, if you've been alive long enough you already know this. Sometimes, you have to be your own cheering squad in order to remain sane and keep going. Being a "dreamer artist", I always expected my friends and family to be my biggest fans. Then came the rude awakening that friends and family don't have to be that to me. In fact, they are free to hate everything I do and that shouldn't affect my relationship with them.
Realizing this I learned how to release them from that imaginary assignment I had given them. It was tough to let go but it made me understand deeply that one has to be their own champion. One has to sing one's own praises, not to the point of arrogant aggrandization but to a healthy degree that allows one to keep forging ahead.
This week's song is an ode to this pivotal realization. I hope it fills you with that unapologetic drive to live your dreams. After all, if you don't believe in yourself, who will?
