oh canada

One of the most incredible life experiences I've had to date was my trip to Afghanistan in July of 2012. I spent some time this morning reflecting on my trip and what an eye opener it was. I learned so much in the short few days I spent there. It was an honour to perform for the troops on Canada Day and I made some really great friends along the way. One day I will share my trip in its entirety but for today, here I am pictured with Eric,one of our pilots on the trip. I am sitting shot gun in a C-17 Military Cargo Plane. At this particular moment we were flying over Dubai. It was the middle of the night but you could still make out the tallest building in the world. What a site. One of the many moments of this trip I will be forever grateful for.

"that moment"

I came across this quote and it really struck me. Over the past year I have made self development the main focus for my music. I have dedicated myself to becoming a better writer, focused on vocal techniques to enhance my sound and really tried to hone in on who I am and who I want to be as an artist.  There are many hard days and long hours involved in my chosen path. Although I never thought I would doubt myself along the way, there are times that I seriously question - is this the right path for me? At the end of the day, no matter how hard some days may get, I always wake up to a new day still SO in love with what I do; still hungry to learn and grow and become better at what I do. That, to me, is enough justification to keep at it. Even in times of doubt, I know that if I keep focused and work hard, "that moment" will be mine one day too. Do what you love, love what you do & fuck what everybody else thinks. Liz xx
