The sunset was magical this evening - and I weep for no reason and with the feeling, of support of a thousand stars right beneath my skin, waiting to burst into this new life - new world, reflecting back at me, from the sun. 🚀⚡️🚀⚡️ _____________________________________________________________

Gonna be honest - as much time as I prepared for last nights visitation service, I sat in the parking lot, frozen with fear, as that lump in your throat welled up. I walked that boy off the high-dive with compassion - one step at a time. And while all I knew what was waiting at the end of the line would be extremely difficult, waiting in the line for me was never been divine conversations. Unexpected, divine connection, and I can't begin to explain the gratitude & the grace for this people - who showed me, that beauty lies in the midst of what my eyes may messy. Keep room in your heart for the unimaginable ways God's power pours into a heart that feels like its cried the drop dried. 🗝️🗝️❤️❤️🙏🏼🙏🏼 (LANDSLIDE)
Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above? Can I sail through the changin' ocean tides? Can I handle the seasons of my life?" (@_stevie_nicks )

💔💔😇😭🙏🏼🙏🏼 / / / /
I jumped in an Uber earlier today and the driver asked me how my day was - and I smiled and said what I typically say - 'it is a day like never before.' Monday evening, the girl to the far right of this photo (my friend of many years, @tbaumgard ,) called me to share news I couldn't believe was a reality. The girl in between us, Jessica, who Ive known since entering high school. Later falling hard for, but she moved to Nashville to attend Belmont and I ended up at Marshall University and living in Huntington. There is a lot of mileage on this heart that have included her. Her father passed away - who was her biggest champion for music (voice that was 🔥 Mariah Whitney special..) she left Belmont and we spent the best 10 months of my college life starting and ending the day together. We were young, wild, and in love. We dated up until about 6 months of me living in Nashville and it was heartbreak. We have remained close - and had others in our lives all of those years. Monday the heartbreaking news that Jess had died at her Mother's home. 💔🙏🏼😭 I never expected that we wouldn't have the opportunity to say goodbye in this lifetime, especially so young. But those that know me really well - know that I'm not afraid to die - and it's why I'm so in my life experience- living my #Giant ass story. I did say to God that I wish I could have said goodbye - but since she's gone, I CAN and WILL say THANK YOU!! Thank you For some of the greatest memories of my young life - and it is only by this amazing grace, Im able to equally honor the pain, and the beauty of the pain at the same time. Now part of my heart hangs in the heavens - where I'm certain, she'll be sangin' and groovin' down with @prince & @michaeljackson! Rest In the Peace of my heart - and all hearts that hold you near, sweet @jessicabaldridge24yahoocom❤️🙏🏼🎵😇💔🗝️ ______________________________________________________________

Monday morning, the news told me it was World Kindness Day, and I went ahead and scribbled on my to-do list to snap a photo in front of the
Kindness Mural when I headed out on my run.

Monday evening, a friend called me and shared news, I didn't expect to
get, and I didn't think of anything else last night, other than...Why?! 😭🙏🏼 Someone I shared a lot of my life with (chapters high school, college 👉🏼up to first year of my Nashville chapter,) made her departure to the other side yesterday.
Today was solace - but brand new in a beautiful way. Fast forward to Juice Bar... @emilyy9090 and I had planned to meet today and I wanted to see her sunshine - but we showed up with no idea that the guy would be giving her the
t-shirt and me, free coffee growler and this spontaneous photo snapped
in front of The Kind Mural, I had planned to visit yesterday, has a full circle blessing. You see, grace is always at play, even with the
heavy moments, I wish wouldn't be real. @rebekahann1 - the gift lesson of spontaneity goes beyond what you or I could have planned. Thank you for sharing that amazing comment and replaying the power of connection
between all of life, that is direct from god / dot to dot. That Sunday was telling a story, I knew all too well, and it has put me in powerful conversations. And thinking of
Jess - playing my spotify list reminded me of my connection to the song "Kids" a 1Repub song I sang with the team last summer // I
heard it today with a different set of ears, and familiarity in the story, yet again.

These are the quite days, where the very the perfect moment shows up, the very breath in the moment, the every breath of God - expressing through YOU, breathing the presence of possibility by making sure I remember the miracle that IS this life. 🙏🏼🗝️🙏🏼🗝️ #TheKindWay #PassItOn

I believe the beautiful hope we wish to see in our headlines and hallways. In between the divided hands and hearts of humanity that is hurting before us, is deep within each of us. Beaming from every heartbeat, ready to discharge & reflect - breathing new life into the world. Its not always easy to see that reflection when you look in the mirror. But not only does it exist, it has been given divine appointment to have human presence during this time. Love is a direct line from within each of us - destined to dream with loving lenses for all. And enjoy the riches of life that are infinite and inservice as one. 🗝️🗝️🗝️ This girl beams with beauty & grace, just by being. Grateful for our connection today - and witnessing first hand - how contagious kindness is - swipe to see the @juicebargermantown employee that gifted the shirt off his back just from a kind compliment. 🙌🏾 Happiness IS the NEW rich y'all. 🚀⚡️🚀⚡️ _____________________________________________________________

My time this week spent on a run or even strolling have had intentionality behind them - grounding one foot in front of the other - into the direction of possibility, my strongest potential, and purpose. That way my pursuit isn't pulled by the pain that seems to pollute the headline news ticker that, unfortunately has been a pattern in world media.
I always look at sunsets like this and have thought just may be it resembles a sneak peak of what God's canvas really looks like for me. And if there's anything I can take away from this week, it's that trusting what the future holds isn't as easy as trusting what this moment holds. Everything up to this point has been preparing me for what's to come. This day has been palpable with courage & promise, for all of this yet to be life. 🚀⚡️🚀⚡️ _____________________________________________________________

It's been 1 week since the Manhattan terror attack that left 8 people dead. Waking up this morning to more information about what they're calling the worst massacre in Texas' history, and the fifth-worst in modern American history, has left me hurting, but hopeful. Heartbroken for these families - for this small town community who had about 4% of the population killed, worshipping in a church on Sunday. Thinking of that, alone - is hard to wrap my head around. / / / / / I've sat quietly and listened for the truth, in myself, knowing my spirit is the only thing I can control - in all circumstances, without convincing or explaining what I think ought to happen, in order to make a devastating situation(s) - different. I couldn't help but think that despite who they voted for, what they believed in, or any other human category/label modern society would classify them under - that they were ALL beings of LOVE, in human form ... no longer alive 🙏🏼😭. I'm not good with math - but Charlottesville / Vegas / Antioch / NYC / TX ... just a few that come to mind - lives=love, that are subtracted from the human consciousness, while headlines made up of hatred & tragedy, seek to multiply, by the day. That's disheartening and unacceptable in the land of the free that I've known my whole life, and I intend to leverage as much LOVE in my life - and through my public platform, to be of service and IN service to ALL. / / / /
L-O-V-E ❤️ I S ❤️ the line between you and me, and between us and every thing! ❤️🙏🏼 There is life without love, but it is not worth a bent penny, a million dollar career, or a glamorized reality social media highlight reel (I.e. Instastory, insert one word caption trend here..)
We have a liberating responsibility to move the thread forward in every moment of every day we're alive, to towards reconciliation, resolving differences + restoring what's been dividing in our democracy and having justice for ALL! ❤️🙏🏼🌎🗝️ _____________________________________________________________

Back in August I decided to get back into private vocal coaching again, which I had not done since '09. I've grown accustomed to the vocal warmups and routine day-to-day exercises that I've disciplined my voice to maintain for live performance and vocal sessions, but, had nonetheless - I had specific points I wanted coaching with in order to take my chops to next level.
@tyler.wysong has been a treasure to work with - in every session. I'm sensitive to criticism, a recovering perfectionist, late, and often impatient, but each session has been a new experience - and it has been refreshing to connect with an instructor whose equal parts passionate, genuine and intentional about connecting the dots of the student's area of focus to reach timely results. Give his video a listen and reach out to him directly for more information on private lessons.

Today schools, community's and businesses across America - wore orange, to show one giant message of support, hope, and unity - together as one, standing against bullying, and united for kindness, acceptance and inclusion, for all. I couldn't help but think of my nephews & nieces, and wonder, with hope, what their future holds...in pursuit of a life where happiness is everyone's destiny. ⚡️⚡️Im hopeful for great possibilities & potentials to be activated for a better future for all will be revealed on the brighter side of this magic carpet ride. All in the name of love ❤️
