What more can I say……

This year has been a roller coaster ride for me, with some astronomical highs, a few really low lows and little « coasting » to be honest…… BUT I had great company along for the ride.  You were there – throwing your hands up for the thrills and offering comfort around the bends.

I know there are a million+ things you could be doing with your time, so I appreciate the investment you make in what I do.

It’s funny, I have been « working » on music for a while, but it’s really only now that I feel like I am embarking on a « career » in it.  When I landed in Japan (a dream in itself) and they asked me the purpose of my visit, being able to respond « work » and « singer »  was one of the most liberating moments of my life.  I actually had to keep my excitement in check — less border patrol think I was about some nefarious business.  🙂

We are all just trying to figure out this life and navigate through it.  Even in the light of some relative success, one can easily become discouraged and fearful of being off course.  When I have stumbled upon these thoughts……. without fail……. I have received an affirmation from one you that I am on the right track.  Know that you are a blessing to me.

In the new year I want to encourage YOU to fight YOUR fears.  There are no guarantees, other than if you don’t try you will not succeed, but if you do, you will be rewarded with GROWTH.  Pretty good odds if you ask me!!

You are the steam that powers the dream.

Here’s to the New Year & New Beginnings!

Much Love

  2. Hey Darien!

    Happy New Year/Happy New You!

    First of all, I want to thank you for all that you do. The music you share with us from your heart touches my soul (I’m sure there are many who can echo those sentiments).

    The pastor at a church I used to belong to always says, « The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. » Life will have its challenges, but we have everything within us to overcome them. We must continue on one step at a time.

    I thank God you have chosen to continue to take the steps you take daily. With each step we grow stronger. I thank you for sharing your strength with us to draw from on those days when we feel like giving up.

    One song (among the many that I love so much) I truly love and apperciate is The Road. When I feel overwhelmed and want to give up, I listen to the song and remember I’m on the road to my destinly. I’m reminded it’s MY destinly to reach and no one else’s. I’m encouraged to continue taking my daily steps and keep it moving. Thank you for continually reminding me that the road to my destiny is mine to walk. This journey is not a « stay »cation, but a journey to be walked out and lived out daily.

    Whatever you do, don’t lose your steam. Your steam not only powers your dream. It also gives so many the steam they need to pursue their dream and to keep moving forward.

    Peace, blessings, and so much love…..Denisce (MsQuietStorm)
