So I'm laying here on this couch taking a break from writing music with my cousin... because once again, I have a headache. They seem to come and go more frequently (more on that later). While I'm laying here I can hear him playing piano. This guy is awesome at what he does and he has done an amazing job with this album so far! I cannot wait for you guys to hear what we have made! (If you wanna follow him on social media I know his Instagram username is @nathant.collins!) Anyways, this album is going to be insane from start to finish! Nathan has taken my thoughts and ideas and morphed them into something tangible. This album reminds me every time we get together to be myself! And I have... Remember to not let anyone tell you anything other than you are great! I have surrounded myself with positive, encouraging, and uplifting people that are genuinely rooting for me to succeed! They have helped me gain back my confidence. This industry is incredibly tough as is any career I'm sure. 

The following lyrics play in my mind every morning when I wake up. I sing this to myself whenever I feel down and like I can't continue or when I feel great and like I can conquer the world! 

 

 >>>Who you are - Jessie J<<<

I stare at my reflection in the mirror
Why am I doing this to myself?
Losing my mind on a tiny error,
I nearly left the real me on the shelf
No, no, no, no

Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

Brushing my hair, do I look perfect?
I forgot what to do to fit the mold, yeah
The more I try the less it's working, yeah,
'Cause everything inside me screams, no, no, no, no, yeah

Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
But tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising
There's nothing wrong with who you are

Yes, no's, egos, fake shows
Like woo, just go, and leave me alone
Real talk, real life, good love, goodnight
With a smile , that's my own
That's my own, no, no, no, no, no

Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising
Just be true to who you are

 

Remember, Always be yourself!!!
