It’s a weird place to be. To have such two opposing passions. The very essence of motherhood is roots. To establish a foundation of love and steadfastness for your children. While the music world is saturated with vagabonds and gypsies.
I’m the type of person who wants to live somewhere and never move, and yet I have this bug urging me to go and see new places every chance I get and chase seemingly unreachable and ridiculous goals.
I find this odd peace in the daily chores of sweeping and folding laundry, yet I’ve got a list a mile long of things way off the beaten path that I’d like to try and no idea where to start.
But being a wife and mom can become all-consuming. My dreams have taken a back seat. A little over 2 years ago I took a step back from music promotions. I was a new mom who had an active baby boy and artists who both required attention.
So what's changed?
Well, not a whole lot. I still have a not-so-little boy who requires attention, I have an ever-growing baby that will join us in August, a husband who works his butt off, and a house that needs cleaning. Oh, and did I mention I'm a childbirth educator and doula!? Yeah...I just have a few fires burning...
And yet, I still have this other fire burning inside of me.
Yeah, I 'm a mom and I'm a birth worker, but I still have goals.
I want to help artists make their dreams come true.
I want to write songs.
I want to be a part of the production part of making music.
I want to be a part of that world again.
And hey, who says I can't? After all, I'm still in my 20s.
So, we'll see what comes out of all of this. For now I'm off to spend some time with my guitar and then prep for my birth class tonight! Just another day in paradise!
I love birth. And I love country music. No rhyme or reason. I'm not here to apologize for the seemingly opposite passions. All I know is I'm inspired by both and I've got some big dreams.
