Well can you believe that it is spring already? I feel like the winter just flew by! We had such a mild winter here on PEI, which was a treat compared to last winter. This may seem like a picture of the moon, but believe it or not it is my poor little island last winter! CRAZY!

This winter has been a time for learning, for finding peace and for planning for an awesome 2016!

 

LEARNING IS FUN! 

-I have also taken the last 3 months to finish up my English Literature Undergraduate Degree at UPEI. My calendar was a little slower this January to April, so I decided to bite the bullet and finish it! My courses have been AMAZING.  It’s been something that I’ve been picking away over the years while I did my music and I can’t believe that in 4 days, it will be done! I’m not going to lie, it was not easy: writing papers in hotel rooms, in cafes on tour and putting that money aside when I could.  I’ve often taken online courses while on the road, but this winter I’ve been in actual classroom settings which has been really nice. I’ve made a lot of friends and love being back in the University library. Just walking through stacks of books is so nice and peaceful. Two weeks into classes this year: I had presented a project in one of my courses and my professor came up to me and said “Hey! You’re doing a really great job. Good for you!” and I swear, in that moment… I felt like crying.

It was SO NICE to have someone come up to me, pat my shoulder and say “You’re doing a great job! Keep going!”.
It made me realize that I don’t tell myself that enough with my music career.

I feel like so many of us don’t give ourselves the time to stop spinning and to be kind  to ourselves.
It was a really big “Aha” moment for me. I can be so hard on myself.
I set my bar so high sometimes.
SO that is a big goal for me in 2016, to be kind and empathetic to myself.
I just need a reminder sometimes that I’m not a robot and I need to listen to my body and my heart when it’s telling me to stop and smell the roses.
