I am super excited to be working on this cover, so I wanted to share a bit of it with you along with the reason I am excited about it. I remember when this song came out. I remember watching the music video and listening to it over and over again. I would imagine myself playing a key board and singing the song (even though I didn’t know how to play the keyboard, or even guitar for that matter.)

I would sing my heart out because I could relate to this song so much. I always felt criticized and I was having to explain myself in everything I did. I felt like I wasn’t good enough and was trying to find myself.

At this point in time, being a songwriter, singing, playing guitar, heck writing period was only a thought. It was a thought that I never actually believed to be a reality because it’s not “realistic”. I always wanted to learn guitar, I’ve always loved singing and I’ve always loved writing. But, I was too shy and to insecure so who was I kidding. So I would sit there and just imagine and daydream.

Because of my husband pushing me to follow my dreams, look what song I happen to be learning now. Am I the best guitarist? No. Am I the best singer? No. Heck am I the best songwriter? No. But, dreams do come true when you work hard and believe in yourself. Just because it’s not “realistic” to someone else doesn’t mean it’s not for you. Work hard and follow your dreams.
Proverbs 16:3 
 Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be estabablished.
