    Many years ago I remember waking up every

    morning thinking to myself "I love my life." Yes, there was a lot that was new, a lot that was going on, and much to be excited about. But I also believe it was a general, constant essence in my head. I nurtured that ideal every day. I put it into practice and used it like a...

    Why Love Hurts (2)

    How do we avoid pain? First, we have to understand what true love is. Understanding love is not easy. It takes faith, maturity and acceptance. It took me 34 years to finally understand what love is. Because true love is not what most of us think it is. When you fall in love, you...

    That's one of my greatest wishes

    as a singer/ songwriter is to inspire others to be who they are. It's not right for people to lie to themselves or to hide behind a mask. I believe that all people should just be themselves no matter what anyone tells you.
