There are days where I just feel like quitting.
I don't know if it's the fact that I still can't believe I turned 30, or maybe I've just learned how to throw myself giant pity parties throughout my 20's. Either way it's a terrible feeling.
However, it is during moments like this that life throws you a different pitch.
About 2 weeks ago I received a message from an audience member who came to one of my shows in Colorado, and in the letter, she was in distress. My first reaction was, and has always been, "What the hell did I mess up this time?!". To my surprise, she was in distress because her mother had lost a signed copy of my CD she had purchased at the show, and it was something she truly treasured. I was so touched that I sent her another signed copy of the CD plus a free shirt. She was not only a fan. She believed in me.
And I think it's about time I believed in myself.
