Today, I believe....

...that the skyline of Boston is a sight I’ll always be thrilled to see, with a drive consisting of thirty minutes, jagged streets, busy lives, and so many possibilities,

 … but that Nashville is still my favorite city.
... that every once in a while, it’s okay to turn off my cell phone and re-connect with myself.
... that I can relate to so many songs on the radio and sometimes find myself saying out loud, “this must have been written for me”.
... that my gut feeling is always right.
... that there’s something insanely breathtaking about the chill of Autumn mornings.
... that one of the most difficult lessons is to learn the balance between comfort and risk.
... that road trips  with no destination, next to the right person, hearing songs with captivating lyrics, is a perfect way to use all your gas.
... that my parents really know a lot about life.
… that I should use my singing voice to my advantage and perform in public places.
… that tattoos are beautiful expressions of yourself, and you don’t need to listen to people who tell you they’re a huge mistake.
… that everyone you meet is dealing with their own problems, so try to take it easy on them.
… that Sam Adams’ Octoberfest is probably the best beer ever created.
…that my dream will always be to write for a newspaper or magazine, live in a high rise apartment in NYC with a view of the bright lights, and go for coffee meetings while wearing high heels on busy city streets, and meet friends for drinks at wine and vodka bars.
… that it’s okay to have these types of dreams.
… that sisters are the best gift you could ever receive.
… And that sometimes --- maybe all the time --- I need to let go, and let God.
