Most of the times, we embrace comfort too much. I always prefer and choose comfort over everything else and for the longest, it had made me complacent and rather idle. I wanted to grow and in order for that to come true, I’d have to start doing things that I feel uncertain about.
I am used to singing R&B. Sometime in January of this year, my partner had made this wonderful tropical vibe song. It’s somewhere within the afrobeat/chill dancehall type genre and I loved it. I enjoy listening to music like that and I was so surprised that he ended up making that song! Now that I think of it, that might have been one of his first songs within that genre. It inspired me to explore that genre as well because I felt so connected to it. I had it as my ringtone whenever he’d call, I would listen to it on repeat even.
I made a song called, “Wanna Get Close” that I scheduled and uploaded Saturday. It was originally supposed to go out on Friday, but I was a bit hesitant to upload it because I wasn’t confident in the song. But as the day passed and I had time to think on it, I just pushed myself to put it out because it’s not about it being perfect. It’s about me sharing my experience of me trying something new. I didn’t want to feel afraid or discouraged. I just went for it and honestly, if people like it, then that’s great! But if they don’t, it shouldn’t hurt me at all because I made this into a learning experience and enjoyed the process. Any project that I end up with is a win regardless, because before there was a project, there was absolutely nothing.
I am giving myself chances and working on learning how to trust myself.
If you listen to this, I hope you could let me know what you think of it in the comments on Youtube and perhaps subscribe for more of my music related content! Thanks!
