I want to share something I heard on the radio today - I love Country Music and was listening to kicks 101.5 my favorite station here in Georgia.
They were talking about last weeks Country Fair in Nashville where the starts actually take not only the time to put on a show - but they have greet and meets for their fans. Now who else does this?
Shaina Twain was there. She has sold the most albums of any one else - 76 million I believe they said. She had a back ground of abuse - and actually raised her siblings. Quite an interesting story if you want to look her up.
She wrote and a sang a new song - about her journey. Her husband was having an affair with her secretary I believe. They divorced a few years back. She quit singing and was just concentrate on taking care of her son. She is now remarried and ready to sing again.
Tug - one of the commentators who was there last week commented on her. Said she was wonderful - she was surprised her fans still loved and accepted her - and he also said - you can tell one someone is just not quite sure of themselves - (from past wounds - I say), and he was surprised with all her wealth, fame, and money she had these little insecurities.
It goes back to what I believe - when there has been abuse - you do get over it - but the scars remain - and the scars can be in the shape of insecurities.
Now I believe this is true too - she wrote the song for HERSELF - so she could get her own words and feelings written out on paper - then every time she sings it - it is self talk to her. She did it so that she could grow and learn every single day. A while back I wrote about self talking to yourself and she did that exact thing.
Here is her new song: TODAY IS YOUR DAY
and here is her interview if you have time - I believe it was a year or two ago and there is a short commercial, but it's interesting.
"Worry is pulling tomorrow's clouds over today's sunshine."
Let's go girls - today is our day!
