Wanting to Walk Away

NOVEMBER 17, 2014 by steffchris

I have been in a love affair with music for as long as I can remember.  It has been one of the most important elements in my life, if not THEE most important.  When I was a little girl, I always saw myself on the biggest stage, in the front of the loudest crowd, holding a microphone in my hand performing my little heart out. When I began singing and performing professionally at the age of nine, I knew I was on the right track and I would be living in my dreams in no time.

Fast forward many years later. Of course, what I wanted to happen, didn’t happen when I wanted it to. It has taken many more years to figure out that I can only control myself and not the actions of others.  It has been a long journey of learning myself and learning this game. I’ve wanted to walk away so many times I’ve lost count but I’m so glad I didn’t.  Anyway, I don’t think my spirit would let me. My dreams always come flickering back to me.

I have always comforted myself with the thought that “everything happens for a reason,” even when I didn’t believe it.  They say you only need faith the size of a mustard seed.
