FINDING GRATITUDE IN LOCKDOWN



That show. Those moments🖤I’ve always been an obsessed country music fan ever since I was a little girl. I knew LeAnn Rimes songs back to front. If someone had told my 10-year-old self that one day I’d walk on to sing my own songs on LeAnn Rimes stage I would have climbed the walls with excitement, bursting with pride and anticipation.


lockdown has given me time to reflect on the journey; I don’t think I ever really did this properly. I’ve realised how important it is that we acknowledge these milestones in life, no matter what journey or how big or small the steps.


Unlocking this memory from the bank has been powerful. At the time, it was a huge musical-adrenaline injection that lasted around a week but I don’t think I ever stopped to fully appreciate or celebrate it like my 10 year old self would have. I guess it got all caught up in the blur and busy-ness of life and we were off onto the next thing, the next show, the next town. But looking back on this now, I feel a little bit like that 10 year old girl singing into her hairbrush💁🏼‍♀️A gentle reminder that when we’re out the other side of this crisis to remember to slow down, reflect and celebrate achievements and let the good vibes flow into the next memory-to-be.
