Today I’m rewriting my past, with a changed mindset, and embracing my new reality.
We are told many things growing up, receiving tons of nasty or negative messaging.
Sometimes, that includes messages that our heart’s desires will never come true and that we should stop trying.
I’ve always been drawn to music and the arts.
Art feeds other forms of art.
But due to limitations, I thought those days of singing were long gone… dreams that just weren’t meant to come into fruition. Today, though, I sort of wish I could go back and tell my younger self that it would all be okay, that young Tina would become this Renaissance woman, capable of breaking glass ceilings, following her heart, and will find her happiness.
Creation, bringing something from an idea into reality, is like no other feeling. It is physically manifesting a new reality of something that you only saw as possible in your mind and now can hold in your hands, listen to, and just enjoy.
I don’t know if you remember, but a couple of months ago, I mentioned how I was starting a story, and the character would only speak with poetry. This is one of the heartwrenching poems. But even when the poem was done, there wasn’t a sense that the journey was over. It called me to do more with it.
Yes, I went out in search of a producer and we worked on it.
Then, no longer was it just about the words, the lyrics I’d created, but a chance for me to sing again, too.
I took it.
I grasped ahold to a future I only saw in my mind’s eye and gripped on to it for dear life.
No matter where this will take me, I’ve created a piece of life’s soundtrack, and hearing my melodic voice will always prove that I am truly unstoppable.
