Most stories finish with an ending but mine finishes with a beginning.
When I stepped away from the “red carpet drive” I made promises to myself and I kept them.
Promises that I would do anything I had to to do to recover from my eating disorder.
I promised to see progress, not perfection,
that I would make peace with food and feed myself lovingly.
I promised I would catch up to my dreams – dreams of writing and performing my songs. I spent my life stifling that dream down so far that I almost lost it.
Blue rain is a song about a healthy state of mind, recovery , mental health, and a heart full of hope; a promise to never give up on yourself and a reminder that you don’t need to try so hard.
Do these lyrics make you pause, maybe look up to the sky, and take a minute out of your day to dream and to believe it could happen to you?
I made promises to myself and kept them,
that’s what “blue rain” means to me,
what is your promise to yourself?
