The Voice Auditions- AKA: A Leap in the Journey

I know a lot of you have been asking about my auditions this weekend with The Voice- it was a great experience and I feel like I have to write down my thoughts...

Tryouts really went well! Got awesome feedback and positive feedback, but I will be returning to Utah this time... :) For some of you, you may look at this experience and then say, "Sorry you came up empty handed," or, "Sorry you wasted time/money." I assure you, that's not how I feel at all. In fact, I feel so rich in exactly the ways I need to right now! 

I know exactly where I need to be for next time (if I choose to go that route), so I'm excited for the upcoming year! :) I feel like a puzzle piece that was missing clicked while I was at that audition. I can't explain it without a lot of random details and stories, but some incredible things happened... and I learned a lot about myself and my path.  It really was exactly what I needed. :) 

I'm not done chasing my dreams- I'm just beginning. This in no way signifys my worth as a person or ability as a singer.  I will get there- I will work WAY harder than I have in the past, with a fresh set of eyes and new perspective to aid my direction. I wasn't even close to being ready, but I'm a whole lot closer after yesterday. 

So a "no" to The Voice today is a huge triumph in a way I can never fully explain... In the words of Ed Sheeran back in 2011, "Give me a few years, I've got some big plans." 

Me too, Ed. Me too.

If you really want to continue to support, watch my videos when I post them and share them! Send me your requests- my new goal is one a week, and learning to mix, so I'm gonna be hittin' things hard. Here's my most recent cover, with a new one to be released within the week, starting my new stream of weekly covers... If you haven't watched, it's a minute and a half long, so take time now.

THANK YOU for all the love and support coming my way- it means the world to me. :)
