Inspired by Jamie/ Lupie Cover Video

Hey followers! I hope you're all doing well. I've had a tough few weeks. I've been feeling pretty badly. 

As you all know, I try to find the good in things whenever I can. I started this blog a long time ago and I don't really share a lot of stuff because honestly I guess I just thought it was pretty ineffectual. I started this up because I try to write the truth about my life, whether it's good, bad, or ugly. I thought if someone else saw it and it helped them to see they weren't alone, it would be worth putting myself, my feelings and my experiences to the world. I've only been posting here every once in a while because although it's therapeutic for me to write, I didn't feel like it was really necessary to share it because nobody was really seeing it. Well, as I often am, I was wrong. 
I have a new friend named Jamie because she saw my blog and felt connected to it. She reached out to me on Facebook and told me how she felt about my writing and it filled up my heart! I couldn't believe that I had reached someone and helped them feel less alone. That has always been my intention from the start. I was so honored and touched that she felt like my writing was so powerful. We ended up having a 2+ hour conversation about the things we've been through and the trials we've faced. It helped me again to connect to someone who has faced a lot of the same trials I have. I never cease to be amazed by the strength of the people I've met. So this blog is for Jamie. She has encouraged me to write more and put my life back out there again. So, this is what I'll be doing. I'm going to go back to my notebook and catch up on the things that I've been writing and post them here for you to see. 
One of the things I did a while back, was rerecord a "lupie" version of the song Royals. My friend Falanya at A Lupie Existence has done several cover songs and I thought they were such a cool idea. I've sang and written dumb things like this before, but I never really thought to post it until she encouraged me to.
So, I hope you enjoy this goofy song I call "Normal". Also, you can expect more posts in the next few weeks. I'm going to post as much and as often as I can thanks to an inspirational woman! Thanks Jamie! Be well!! 😀💜💜💜💜

You can check out "Normals" here hope you have fun watching. I had fun making it! Lol
