When you create your own opportunities, you’ll create your own momentum..
Grab it by throat and don’t let go.
Make voyages! Attempt them! There’s nothing else

I love the early hours just before daylight. A fresh start ,a new beginning,before your mind has to grapple with the realities.
I don’t ever wanna look back & say what I could of been. I want to give my very best every day, month, year. I want to be the best.

I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me-like food or water.
