    the calm after the storm.

    wow.

    i am speechless.

    inspired is how you make me feel.

    grateful is how i want to stay.

    the past twenty five days DID happen.

    they happened to me + to you.

    they made almost every dream i’ve ever had come true.

    love. heart-touching. love. believers. love. new employers. love. record deal. love. jason mraz asking me to sing “lucky” with him on the tour he asked me to join. love. genuine happiness + buttons popped. love. fans. love. a purpose. love.

    i asked my manager what i should do now, + he said. “dream bigger”

    so thats what i’m gonna do.

    im gonna work harder.

    im gonna put out music faster.

    im gonna write whats inside of my heart heartier.

    im gonna love the shit out of you— back.

    everyone keeps asking why i think this all happened + what i would say to the person still

    trying…i believe all these things happened because i never gave up. because i did everything i DID NOT want to do. because i worked so hard it hurt. and because i trusted my path, good or bad, i let go.

    now excuse me while i go do what it is i’m on this planet to do….
