2013 was an incredible year for me and my sister. We released a song co-written with my song writing I D O L S, made a big move to LA, had our song featured in a national Audi TV commercial, turned the big 2-1, saw our faces in Macy’s stores and Seventeen Magazines nationwide thanks to the incredible American Rag brand, and we even headlined a tour with an amazing band *whom I’ve made some of my closest friends* in a bus with our faces on it.
Jeez. Looking back at it… It seems a little crazy to me. At the times these things were happening, I was stoked! Don’t get me wrong! But I’m the kind of person who is always thinking about the “what’s next.”
So that brings me to my resolution for 2014. In 2014, I vow to live in the “right now” as opposed to the “what’s next.” This past year, I was so busy thinking about what the next thing was going to be that I couldn’t enjoy what was happening right in front of me. I had a great conversation with my very wise, loving mother today, and she pointed something out to me… Why is it so hard for me, Megan, to just “be”? I’m sharing this with all of you because I feel like it’s something we all struggle with. We are who we are. We feel what we feel. That’s really all there is to it. We just need to let ourselves “be.” – that includes living in the right now and BEING in the right now. It’s so cliche when people say you only have today, but it’s so true; do you really want to look back on your life and the big moments in your life and think “oh, I remember that day. It was great except I remember being stressed about blah blah blah…..” Which down the road you found out didn’t even matter???? I know I don’t. You’re here today. You’re alive today. Just let yourself be.
Here’s to an amazing 2014 full of promise, optimism and change.
I love all of you with every ounce of my being. Thank you for making my life the dream come true that it has been.
