A Note From the Universe

b5a8539be19fabe6361992c755d95e4f

The Universe blessed me with this much needed message today:

As surely as mountains are to be climbed and oceans sailed, your dreams are meant to come true. This is why you’re here, Jessica, to live the life of your dreams. Not to be tested, challenged, and tried, but to conquer, champion, and rule. Keep going, forge ahead, press on, and the day must dawn when your thirsts shall be quenched, and you, exalted.

Never settle for less, don’t ever think it’s too late, and never, ever, ever compromise a dream.

Exalting you early,
The Universe

I have had a few hiccups the past few days (it must be the new moon!), so this message came at just the perfect time. Each day I realize more and more that I am on the right path to my dreams. I cannot wait to see where 2015 leads me! The Universe could not be shouting more clearly at me to embrace my passions and follow my heart! I am so beyond blessed with this opportunity of being unemployed to allow me the time needed to focus on my goals. I could not be more grateful!

Where it all Began…

Prior to this point of discovering country (late 2005/early 2006ish) when ever I was asked, “What kind of music do you like?” My response was ALWAYS, “Everything! EXCEPT country and classical!” Oh the irony! Liking country music back then wasn’t considered “cool”… nor had I really ever given it a true chance. The first country song that I was introduced to was during the summer of 2000, Lonestar’s ‘Amazed’. I did absolutely love the particular song and the memories it invoked, however this one song did not turn me onto the country genre. A couple of years later in 2002, while visiting a friend in CT who loved country (who I happened to have a crush on of course!), he played me Randy Travis’s ‘Forever and Ever, Amen’. I of course downloaded it in Napster, or Morpheus, (or whatever the program of those days were) when I got back home. I did “secretly” also like Shania Twain, but that was about it, and all that I had been introduced to thus far.
