2015 was the year of standing up for myself. A year of understanding and demonstrating my self worth. Trusting my instincts, standing up for what I believe in. It was a year of trading in cat memes for posts on lawsuit abuse and legal reform. Speaking my truth.
Both 2014 and 2015 were very rough years due to being dragged into the legal system and defamed by the media. I caught a behind the scenes glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes in two systems that can be well…quite warped. I felt a sense of responsibility to my fellow humans to report what I saw. It’s a journey that not many can understand… sure there are some that have been wronged by the legal system… there are others who have been defamed by the media. I could be wrong, but I feel that the pool of people who have experienced both… well I think it’s a very exclusive group and not one people are dying to get into.
The day may never come when I don’t feel like talking about it anymore. Life will never be the same.
I wish for you to all speak your truth in 2016, to stand up unapologetically for what you believe in. To know that you are unique, valuable and to know that your voice matters.
I was supposed to go to a party at a recording studio an party with a bunch of metal bands with my room mate for New Year’s Eve… but my room mate is MIA, I think she’s upstate right now and doesn’t seem to be reachable by text at the moment. So it looks like I am kicking it at home. I could go out and find another party… but at the moment… I don’t feel like it.
What I do feel like is… writing a song. My psychic told me I should start writing music from a point of view of not involving blame. I can’t lie, a lot of my songs are “you done me wrong” songs… a reoccurring theme in my life. But I am going to give it a shot. I am taking a shot at another track with another collaborator in Sweden. Might be a good way to ring in the New Year.
Unless my room mate suddenly comes home and wants to party with metal bands. That works too.
Happy and healthy 2016 everyone!
