Hey everyone. In today's world people deal with stress on many different ways. Some work out, some read, some go for a walk and some-like me- write,create and enjoy music. I have struggled for years to find "my thing". Everyone around me seemed to have their - some had sports, some had art or just socialising with friends, and me? I always felt like I didn't fit in, I wasn't that great at sports and as much as I enjoyed art it didn't seem to fill my heart up. That was until I discovered music. It was so beautiful to find a song that describes your current state of mind perfectly. Before I would just listen to music, not really going into depth of it. But after I discovered how much joy and happines it brought me, I really started thinking and listening to the lyrics,trying to feel what the artist felt when they wrote the song - wheater it be a slow sad ballad, a love song or a upbeat party song. Every song has emotion and a meaning behind it. It was so nice to finally "fit in" and find my thing, a thing that filled up my heart. Slowly over the years I have tried to become my best self (not only as a person, but as a singer aswell). Learning new singing techiques, hearing new songs and discovering new sounds. I have been "studying" singing for 4 years now, and have come a long way, but the journey that I have is still long, filled with tears of defeat.ups and downs, being torn in my mind on giving up or going on, believeing in myself (even when nobody else does), trying my best and work my hardest to achieve my dream of a singer and songwriter. I also got courage to create a Soundcloud page where I post some covers I do. I know I'm not the best, I'm average at best but the amount of joy I have while singing is beyond of my self doubt. I'm still colecting courage to create a YouTube channel - because what if people dislike me a lot? What if someone I know finds it and laughs at me? I guess only time will tell what will happen. Until then, I will continue posting covers and making my own songs. But what I want to tell everyone reading this,needing some support and not being sure in themselves is - Your are worth it, you are alowed to feel good about what you do and be pround of your work, No matter what people around you say or do, if you have a feeling about something and you think it's good, then it's good! Don't apologize for doing things for yourself and being happy- because it takes courage to be yourself and YOU ARE WORTH IT!
Thank you for reading this and I hope you will find at least a little bit reinsurance in yourself and feel motivated and ready to conquer the world. If you ever want you can go ahead and give my covers a little listen on Soundcloud- just go to: https://soundcloud.com/amberleighofficial and don't be afraid to send a message. :)
