Last night was the Independent Music Awards, and although it was a great experience, I didn't win.
I honestly must say, I was a bit disappointed. But the beauty of the night is how my whole team looked at me and said, no worries, we just work harder. I was so taken by this response. It wasn't negative, there were no comments towards the winner, just pure inspiration to work. I felt blessed in that moment, I knew I had the best team and in that same moment my manger Mike began making phone calls to make more things move.
I thank God for that. I thank God that my prayers have been answered with placing people around me being a reflection of the energy I ONLY want to be surrounded by. It checked me, because I did have a comment toward the winner that was unnecessary, but my team checked me. I was grateful for that, because that's not who I want to be. Congrats to Taylor Grey on Best Pop Song. She was suppose to win.
This was to happen. God doesn't want me to feel like I'm at my best just yet, because if I feel that, I won't work as hard to be it. Now today, I work even harder, I work smarter, I work with more determination than I ever had yesterday. I remind myself again, awards don't give you validation, the people who connect to your music do. That has always been one of my affirmations/slogans and it will continue to be.
So to all my Wonders out there, THANK YOU SO MUCH for connecting to my heart. YOU make it worth it. YOU give me purpose. YOU give me reason to sing! I love you!
