Current Music Obsession!!!

ImageI so love writing this type of blog post because music is what drives me. Music is what motivates me and it’s my escape into my own little world. So for the past few months I have been playing this little six song “EP” that has been just a little bundle of joy in my life. Ahh i have never experienced music that has just captivated me and just been my latest love and obsession. I have been listening to “Handmade Songs by Tori Kelly.” This “EP” is just amazing. Everything about it is just so perfect. I am literally in love with every song and whenever I get some time to pop in my headphones I switch to “Handmade Songs by Tori Kelly” I play the hell out of those six songs. Tori Kelly’s voice is new and funky. She has her own little style and personality and her music just echoes who she really is plus her voice is flawless. “Handmade Songs by Tori Kelly” is like a little chill little mix of songs you can just pop in some headphones and bump it anywhere. It is what I would say feel good music. Listening to her “EP” the songs give me so much hope. I feel like I can do anything because Tori Kelly knew that this is what she wanted to do and she believed and had enough faith to know that anything is possible in life. She isn’t backed by a major label or any big marketing team and her biggest supporters are her fans, friends and family and with that support she succeeded and she produced a kick ass “EP”. I find it so cool that one’s person journey can be so inspiring to me and hopefully others. My favorite song on the EP has to be “Eyelashes”. This song is so my life and probably so many other girls life lol. I’m sure everyone has gone through this situation. Another one of my favs is “Confetti”. This song man this song is just the truth. We all dream of bigger things that we want now and never want to just let life and the great things we have ahead come to us in due time. Basically this song is telling people to slow down and enjoy life and be happy. I can see Tori Kelly doing some amazing things when she finally puts out her debut album. I would love everyone to just click this link “Handmade Songs by Tori Kelly” and please support her and buy her “EP” on iTunes 🙂 You won’t be disappointed!!! xoxo<3

Fortune Favors the Brave

Fortune Favors the Brave

I was reading a blog this morning and this little quote came up. “Fortune favors the brave” It’s a very to the point quote and I love it. Basically when you break it down it’s saying in life when you take risks, step out of your comfort zone and do something out of the ordinary but amazing at the same time, the benefits and good fortune you can reap is out of this world. Have you ever had a time you didn’t take that one risks you knew you should have. Well God is a God of multiple chances so it’s never to late to just go after everything your heart desires. Make that big move today and just go out an do something you never did before that you’ve always wanted to do. (P.S make sure it’s good and legal lol) XoXoBesos❤

Yes Moments!

Have you ever had moments in your life where you just wished you said yes instead of saying no or instead of just sitting there speechless because you have no worries. I think a lot of this comes from the lack of confidence we have within ourselves and the inability to not worry about what people will say or how this will affect our lives. I have had moments like these maybe one to many where I should have given an answer instead of just remaining speechless or acting like I wasn’t interested. I look back on these moments and these are my biggest regrets in life. Not being able to say “yes” when the right moment came up.A lot of my missed moments had to do with worry and not feeling good enough. Some has to do with relationships I passed up because I was too afraid to take the risk and others had to do with me internally. My inner yes moments. I am 20 years old and the only risks I take in life is speaking what’s on my mind. I know I know not a lot of people can do this but I wish that I was more of a risk taker instead of a worrier. I worry a lot about myself and also about what others will think of me if I step way out of the box. I need to ask God to just take that pride away from me and renew in me a new and improved risk taker. A person who will follow the things he has placed on her heart. Praying always works but it is up to the person who is praying for these things to go out and do it. God can plant that seed in our lives but it is up to us to continue feeding it, nourishing it and nursing it to it’s full potential.

“Don’t worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God. Then, because you belong to Christ Jesus, God will bless you with peace that no one can completely understand. And this peace will control the way you think and feel.”-Philippians 4:6-7

If anyone reads this what are some moments in your life you wish you had said yes?

God and Me Time :)

I love that time of the night/early morning when my entire house is asleep and I can just press into my worship music and just praise God, read the bible or just something inspirational or just plain old search the internet or write blog post. I love this time because it is so quiet which means that I can think better and just focus on God. I have to admit that I don’t do this every night sometimes I stay up and catch up on my TV Shows or watch a movie or something. I love to sing and I feel like I have a real passion for worship music but I want to make sure that this is what I really want to do. I want to do this for all the right reasons and not the wrong reasons. Yes there can be wrong reasons to want to do some stuff that is in your heart. Well I believe that…..I would really love to know how to master the art and really engage and press into a higher place with God and also to connect with the church members. I believe it is a God given talent and also something that must be on your heart. You can have the best voice in the world but never learn how to just let go and put your heart into it. I always envision myself singing in front of my church and just basking in his glory and also engaging and ministering to the church people through music. I want to learn how to write songs so I am reading the bible on a somewhat daily basis. I picked the Contemporary English Version because it was the easiest translation for me. I am understanding some stuff so much more better but not really memorizing it (sad face) I am trying that is what I am proud of. I am trying and I hope God is proud of me at least. I want to minister to people of all ages and just inspire them, listen to them, be that voice of inspiration and so much more. I am slowly putting away my wayward ways and behaviors and trying my best to be the new ME.
