Two weeks ago, I shared my ongoing struggles of anxiety with the world. As I read through the supportive comments and messages from people I’ve known for years and people who I’ve never met at all, I just felt so held. I guess social media can be good for some things!  Continue Reading…

Anxiety from too much travel?

This was me last week.

Amongst all the happy smiling faces and photos of my epic travels, this photo resembles how I actually felt most of the time… and most of the month for that matter. I suffer from anxiety. And although as I write this post and I’m feeling pretty darn good, I know it’s not permanent and that my anxiety could resurface at any moment. Continue Reading…

Why I turned down a huge tour

I’m just gonna say it:
The music industry is as messed up as it gets.

As you can see, I’m a little more than mad. I don’t normally like writing posts that are negative in nature, but I just couldn’t let this one go. Let me dive straight into the reason why I am writing this post…

Yup, I’m thankful for a pointy plant and I’m prouuuud of it!! Continue Reading…

After my first music tour in Germany, I decided to take a little (extra large) stopover before the long flight home to Canada. So I spent 2 months in South Africa doing some soul searching and rejuvenating. I know what you’re thinking… that’s a pretty loooooong detour! – But I’m cray-cray like that. Nothing less would be expected of me. 🙂 Continue Reading…

Ever been in a relationship that felt like all you did was WAIT, only to be SEEN? I have…10 years… I waited 10 loooong long long years for someone who never noticed. That’s a fricken decade!! And a long time to wait patiently for somebody, yet never feel like you’re being seen. But after realizing that there is another HUGE part to this (myself), I learned my lesson. I learned about myself in the best of ways and walked away quietly. I came out on the other side feeling calm, peace and at rest with the mysteries of the relationship, that the universe had humbly brought me.
