Almost let the day get by without mentioning an important milestone. I can hardly believe it's been 10 years! When I first got the instruction I struggled for over 6 months with it because I was like most people committed to "job security" & "financial stability". My first album had been released and all I could think about was how to promote it. God was saying it was time for me to leave my job in corporate America but I had bills and responsibilities and I didn't live in a ...fantasy world because I was a musician. I was still a realist.
However, the weight of fighting God was crushing me and I finally let go. Some family and friends thought I was crazy and it came with great sacrifice but I wouldn't change it. I'm so glad I didn't let other's opinions change my mind. It took courage, faith and commitment to do it and here I am. Life still happens like everyone else's but it's much better when you're doing what you love. I encourage you to be bold enough to go after your dreams...This is MY Independence Day!!
