Absolutely incredible.

That's the only way I can sum up this entire week. As I sit here and reflect on everything that happened, I cannot think of any other way to have it. I simply cannot stop smiling.

I have been encouraged so much this week.

After celebrating my 18th birthday on Monday, I took the stage to audition for our high school's annual student/staff talent show. I took a deep breath, picked up my guitar and sang a song from my deep within my heart.

And they loved it.

"That was so good!"
"Get that on iTunes!"
"I'm not going to lie, that was really awesome."

Their words of encouragement lifted my dream higher than it's ever been before. Allowing others a peek inside the crazy, perfect world of my songs, I now have a small fan base growing within the advanced leadership class. I have never felt this way before, and I'm not letting anything bring me down from this high.

I am so excited for what is to come next.

This is the first big step in creating my image as a musician. I will continue taking the baby steps to achieve the dream I have within my mind. And I'm not going to stop until I get there.

For now, I will continue to write, to inspire, and enjoy the rest of my senior year.
There is plenty more incredible weeks to come.

"It was the night things changed. Can you feel it now? These walls that they put up to hold us back fell down. This revolution, throw your hands up 'cause we never gave in. We'll sing hallelujah..."
