Happy New Everything!

Have you ever hit a point in life where you felt like everything was changing all at the same time? I mean everything: career, relationships, health, personality traits...everything. Well, that's where I am right now! First of all, any one of these things changing is normally a little stressful for me, but all of them? At the same time? I have to admit, I was stressed. Even knowing that all of this was changing for the better, it can be overwhelming. So, I spent some time to myself...just being alone...praying, singing, maybe even crying a little bit (I am a woman, you know!). Then I saw this quote. I've seen it so many times and I know it by heart, but something clicked in me the other day when I saw it in front of me.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

I realized in that moment...change was awesome! Change is needed. Change is necessary. So now...I've never been as excited for a new year as I am right now. I am charged and ready to take the bull by the horns. So what, everything is changing? I got this! This is how it should be. What an opportunity to have  everything change at the same time! Sure, there's more responsibility and a ton more work to be done, but I know I'm capable. Is it scary sometimes? Heck yes! Do I ever want to go hide somewhere? Sure! Will I? Never! 

I'm writing this blog just in case you might be dealing with the same kind of change. I just wanted to let you know you can do this! It's okay to be scared sometimes, but don't let it paralyze you. Keep moving towards the change you want to see. Make it work for you. I believe in you. 

A couple things that are helping me along the way 

My new favorite Bible verse: Hebrews 13:5b (Amplified version)

For He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. I will not, I will not, I will not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let you down (relax My hold on you)! Assuredly not!

And a quote that came to me the other day while I was being quiet:

Don't mistake my meekness for weakness. I AM STRONG. Or my tears for wavering. I AM UNMOVABLE. Or my quietness for fear. I AM FEARLESS.'s what I want you to do. Keep me posted right here on how your new year is going and how you're embracing change! I can't wait to hear your awesome stories! Love you guys so much and I couldn't be more grateful to have you in my life!

Happy New Year! Happy New You! Happy New Everything!

Early Christmas!

I really need your help! I can't believe I'm saying this, because I've never been the kind of person who feels comfortable asking for anything. However, if I'm gonna get this job done, it'll take all of us working together. So here's what I need...

For the next two weeks, I need you guys to help me promote the living daylights out of my new Christmas single "God Bless Us Everyone." I know you guys have already been helping me spread the word, but I would love to do an extra huge push for Christmas! I've never been more excited about a song I've released! Regie Hamm was the perfect person to write with, Tre' Corley was the perfect producer and you guys were the perfect muse for the video! There are hundreds of radio stations already playing the song and that makes me ultra excited too! So, how do we get even more? Here are a few ideas...

Call any of your local radio stations that are playing Christmas music and request the song...if you don't hear it, keep calling!

Tell everyone you know (and some you don't know) about the song!

Write a review on iTunes and Amazon about what you think of it!

Watch AND share the video! (I promise to post an extra special victory dance if we can get the views to at least 10,000)

If we can ramp it up over the next two weeks, we will not only be getting the word out there, but we will also be setting ourselves up for next year! We want to make this song a Christmas staple! 

Whew! Ok...I did it! I asked for your help! Thanks so much for all you've already done and thanks in advance for your help in the next two weeks! You guys are the most amazing group of supporters and I totally consider you my early Christmas gift!
Love you all,
xoxo Melinda
